What's a reasonable price for "dropping" a kerb? My son and his wife need to have theirs dropped. You have to go through the council, and you have to employ one of their recommended firms to do the job. He has tried a few, most have said "we ain't doin that at the moment" (mate), and the only one to come back with a price so far has quoted ?1400 -- which seems very excessive both to my son and to me.
Any ideas of what a fair quote might be? (And also, what he can do next, if the Council's recommendees "ain't doin that at the moment"?
