Standard Plumber Hourly Rate in London
The average plumber cost per hour in London can fluctuate depending on the company you go to. Some try to get away with charging as much as possible for substandard work, but not UKOOA. Our team is filled with licensed experts who have been able to gain a lot of experience within the plumbing industry.
A lot of things in London come with a hefty price tag, but that doesn’t mean plumbing does too.
Our Rates: A minimum of one hour is charged per visit – any extra time is charged in 15 minute increments. This is different from a lot of other plumbing companies who usually charge by hour, meaning you often pay for more labour than you get.
Estimates: We are able to provide you with a no-obligation quote before any work starts to ensure you are happy with all elements. This can be either verbally or we can even put it in writing for you.
The Invoice: Your final bill will be clearly broken down into components such as labour, materials and the exact work that was carried out. This way, you’ll know exactly where your money is going.
Materials: The hourly cost rate does not include the cost of materials, although we will always let you know the exact price of all parts. Our prices are subject to VAT.
Payment: When you receive your final invoice, you can make a payment by cash or credit card to your engineer.
We are fully transparent with all plumbing charges, regardless of the service. By receiving a no-strings-attached quote prior to the work and an itemised bill at the completion, every aspect of our charges will be clear.
If you find something on your bill that you don’t quite understand, don’t hesitate to contact a member of our team who will be able to explain all elements.
No Hidden Fees or Sneaky Charges
Our hourly prices are set and cover different days and times. When we offer you the initial no-obligation quote, you can be certain that we’ll stick to it. The only time it will ever change is if the job becomes larger and therefore takes longer to complete, or if work is needed during unsociable hours.
Unlike a lot of other plumbing companies, we will never charge you for parking, travelling, congestion fees or cost of fuel.
When it comes to sourcing and purchasing parts or materials, we will run it by you first to make sure you’re happy with the price.
