At Ainsdale Gas we have found that the most fair way to charge for small jobs is on an hourly rate. Our engineer will give you an estimate on arrival of the likely time the job will take and keep you up informed if the job will take longer than the estimated time. Jobs that may seem short and simple from the outset can turn out to be bigger problems whilst some jobs can be completed much sooner than expected so charging this way is fair as you only pay for the time the job takes.
Our rates during our normal working hours (8am-5pm) are as follows:
Up to 1 hour = £72.
For each hour thereafter = £54.
Our rates for emergency call outs outside of our normal working hours are:
Up to 1 hour = £108.
For each hour thereafter = £81.
This applies to diagnosis, repair and small installation work. The cost of materials supplied by us are not included in the above prices.
Boiler or gas fire services and gas safety certificates typically cost £72 but if more work than usual is needed our engineer will let you know.
Free quotations are available on works with labour costs from £432. We require a deposit to book in quotes that you accept from us which is typically 50% of the total amount. Materials costs are not normally itemised on invoices and quotes but will be included in the total cost.
Payment is due on completion or if nobody is available to pay then we may ask for payment upfront.
Any parking charges we incur whilst working at your property will be added onto the invoice.
Our prices are inclusive of VAT to domestic customers and VAT invoices can be issued to business customers.
