I don’t give quotes for work that’s likely to come in under £100, but to help give you an idea of costs here are some guidelines. In some cases it might be cheaper for you to package up a number of jobs and go for the day rate.

Hourly Rate             First hour costs £40, hours thereafter are charged at £ 30 per hour

Day Rate                   £180 which is an seven hour day

Plaster patch repair – where you’ve got a hole in ceiling or a wall that’s been finished in plaster starts at £45 depending on how big the hole is.

Assembling a flat back bookcase, fitting a ready made shelf, fitting curtain poles, rails or blinds start at £40.

Assembling an IKEA ‘Brimnes’ bed £75.

Changing a ‘like for like’ tap starts at £40.

Door hanging starts at £50 as does fitting locks and handles.

Interior and exterior painting, painting and decorating and tiling jobs will need a quote.
