Any given job may be attended by either myself (David), my old mukker Nigel, or by both of us. If it's a one-man job but two of us turn up, then we'll be quite fair about the pricing and you'll only pay for the fellow doing the work, not for the guy standing around with his hands in his pockets. Where we both turn up and are each fully engaged in the appointed task, you will be charged per person, per hour/part hour.

Where bookings have not been made directly but are through third parties such as agencies, other trades, directory services or management firms, the rates charged may be higher to reflect the fees levied by such services. Billing and fees may be handled by these third parties and be outside of our control under such circumstances.

Rate 9, the minimum charge, may be levied at my discretion and may apply to any short-order call-outs where the use of tools or specialist knowledge is required to quickly diagnose a fault or to resolve a simple issue. Viewing or quoting for a job will not be charged for unless you are requesting specific design work, however any specialist faultfinding, even when undertaken with the aim of being able to produce a free quotation for remedial work, will be charged for.

Travel time within the CV postcode is not charged for as part of the hourly costs, although a day rate, where agreed, may incude travel time. Work booked outside of the CV postcode area would be subject to travel time charges.


If you have received an invoice and are still unclear about the rates as charged, or if you disagree with the number of hours or number of operatives as listed, then just let me know and we'll soon sort it out. We may occasionally have work experience students placed with us through local colleges, however their labour is not charged for.


Prices are subject to change without notice as determined by the market, but work that has been booked in before any price change will be undertaken at either the previous price or the new price, whichever is lower and ensures the best value for money for you. Invoices and quotes already issued remain set at the rate that was in force on the date of issue.
