emergency plumber London
Well, different plumper based on many factors would get different amount of money but still there is a standard for charging customers. This standard contains different factors such as the ones we are going to explain here:
The distance between you and the plumper
When you try to find a plumper in an urgent situation, most people will search for the nearest services but some people may be in areas that are far away from any plumper so even the nearest one is still far. This means that you may have to pay more money in order to get the plumper in to your house. Based on how far you are from the emergency plumber London , you will be charged differently.
The time required to do the job
Factor of time is a very important one in charging for repairing. Actually, it can be the most important one indeed. Every plumper has quit the same way of charging. Based on the hour necessary for your repairing, they will charge you either hourly or based on a plumper day rate.
The minimum time of charging is one hour, even if it takes less that one hour to do the job, you will be charged for one hour. If your damage is more serious and needs more time like a whole day then you will be charge a day rate. The price for each hour is about £75 or £60 per hour to do the work and the price for day rate is about £400 per day.
In addition to the time required for your job, the time of the day or year that you call is important too. For example, in holidays like Christmas, you should pay more money than the usual standard of charging.
The damage of plumping system
Sometimes when you call an emergency plumber London , you are actually facing a major damage but you think it is just about a simple leaking. Therefore, be ready to hear that the job is more than you think and it needs lots of work to be fixed. Now the plumper will charge you based on the damage the plumping system has because that equals how much energy and efforts he should put to fix it.
For example, you will be charged differently if the problem is just about an overflowing/overfilling toilet rather than a more complex job. As a whole, the emergency types of job are listed as below:
- Blocked Toilet Cost: the water doesn’t go down or liquids comes out of the sewer
- Blocked Sink: it happens when something is stuck in the sink and the water can’t go down.
- Toilet Replacement: it happens when your toilet is too old and causes constant repairing for you. In this case, you have to pay more money.
- Tap Replacement: for replacing a tab, you will be charged in four different sections in the final bill.
- Blocked/Overflowing drain: it is as same as blocked toilet and blocked sink.
- Burst Water Pipe: it usually takes about 1 to 3 hours to fix this problem.
- Leaking Radiator
- Leaking Boiler Cost
- Thermostatic Radiator Valve installation
- Radiator Installation
- Hot Water Tank Repair
Buying parts required for repairing
Sometime there is not just about fixing the plumping system, sometime it is about changing different parts that are causing damage. In this situation, you have to pay more money because the plumper has to order and buy new parts so that the job can be done. This money is completely separated from the money you should pay to the plumper himself. So in the final bill has an added cost for ordering required parts.
