Fitting Gas Hob


I have ordered a replacement gas hob and will need to have it installed by a CORGI registered person. Can anyone tell me what to expect to pay and anything I should watch out for please.
Thanks

If it is just to connect the appliance up I guess 40-60. 30 Mins to an hours work including testing.

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.

Sound like a job well done at a reasonable price.
