We finally had the garage conversion wired in last week. I was quoted £400
for connection, testing, and supply of 2nd fix parts, which included around
13 double sockets, 3 single sockets, and 3 or 4 switches, along with a 5-way
CU with RCD.
I was promised MK sockets by the electrician. When I spoke to him a few
months back, he said he always used MK, as he'd had problems with all other
sockets. But when he was here last week, he said he didn't use MK, as he'd
had problems with them, and that he'd put standard GET sockets everywhere.
He also said they cost the same as MK. Call me sceptical, but does anyone
else think this sounds a bit crap? Don't get me wrong - they all work, and
they will do the job - but the original quote was for MK.
It's all done now, and I can't be arsed getting him back to change them -
but I do have an outstanding feedback to leave on www.ratedpeople.com. ;-)
