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.
