How to ensure a London Plumber doesn’t overcharge you

How can you make sure that the London plumber you use doesn’t overcharge you? It’s something that many people worry about but that few actually ask the question until it’s too late..

Plumbers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some do a great job for a fair price while others; how can we put it politely? – Oh yes – they try to extract the urine. Even worse; sometimes you might get a plumber who not only charges extravagantly high prices, but who also does poor quality work. There’s nothing more infuriating than paying someone for a bad job and then having to pay more to a good plumber to come and put it right.

We here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating have been plying an honest trade as a London plumber for many years now. We are pleased to say that our customers are always satisfied with the work we do for them; and we charge competitive prices too. So, here are a couple of tips on what you can do to try and make sure your plumber does not overcharges you.

Top tips of how to avoid being overcharged for plumbing work

Firstly, when you do call the London plumber of your choice in, ask them for an estimate before any work is carried out. It’s something we do for all our clients. If it’s a repair, it’s not always easy to diagnose exactly what the fault is until you find it, and that of course means doing a bit of work. However, what we do is to give the customer the best case and worst case scenarios. Then at least they know the sort of ballpark they’re in.

Compare estimates

Another possibility for ensuring your London plumber doesn’t overcharge you is to get several estimates. Okay this might not be that easy in as much as you may not have the luxury of time if you have an emergency plumbing problem. However, you don’t have to get the plumber to visit your home. You always try phoning to them to get a clue as to how much the repair could cost you.

Going by recommendation

The best way of ensuring a London plumber doesn’t overcharge you is to get a recommendation from someone you know and trust. We here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating find that the majority of our work does indeed come from recommendations and this is something we are proud of.

Checking the registrations a plumber has

There is one other thing you can do to find a London plumber who won’t rip you off, and that is to take a look at their websites for two things. Firstly, are they CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing Heating Engineering) registered? If they are you’re probably on to a winner.

The other thing is to check out is whether or not they are Gas Safe registered. Even though you might not have gas in your property, the fact a plumber is Gas Safe certificate speaks volumes for their quality of work.
