Ask around you neighbours for who they used and would recommend. Getting
the job done correctly is far, far more important that getting it done
badly for a couple of quid less. Prices will vary greatly depending on
area. Here, poor rural Devon, our local guy charges 25GBP to locals and
75-100 GBP to second-homers..
What I would suggest to watch out for and check is that all the
installation requirements, in terms of siting, ventilation, proximity to
curtains, opening windows etc, are all met. Otherwise you could be
paying for someone to come and condemn the existing installation,
isolate it (or turn and lock off the supply at the meter) and leave you
with no gas..
Just a follow uppost to let you know the outcome. I found several CORGI
registered fitters local to me on the CORGI website. I phoned a few and left
messages but only one contacted me. I arranged to have the hob fitted and
the mancame onMonday to have a look at the job and returned on Wednesday and
fitted the hob. He had to rework the short gas feed pipe as the supply was
on the wrong side. He also had to cut a little more out from the worktop so
that the hob would sit correctly..
He was here about 1.5hrs and did a full gas test prior to removal of the old
hob and also after installation of the new one. Assisting him was another
plumber who is training to be CORGI registered and as part of his training
has to work with a registered fitter.
So all in all very satisfied with the job and polite hassle free service.
All in cost here in Chadderton, near Manchester - £60.
