  • That everything will function as it should.
  • It complies with the appropriate regulations.
  • That there are no surprises during the installation.

About Our Quotations

When providing a quote for a service we quote for the whole job involved. This ensures you are fully aware of all costs and elements relating to your appliance and its installation. This is the reason we provide our quote in two sections. Our clients can choose supply-only or supply and installation based on our quotations.

Your appliance, installation components and accessories will be included within the final quotation. This is so you can choose whether to go for supply only and/or installation.

The installation element details what works are required for the installation of your appliance. Any bespoke additions will be added.
