I'm sure we've all met them; joker tradesmen who quote crazy prices in the hope that someone, some day, will accept.
We're having some re-modelling work done to our UK home, amongst which is a new bathroom. It's a small room, and we're replacing the loo, hand basin, and bath/shower. A very easy job for even the least experienced of plumbers. You take one out and replace it with another. With all the modern flexible plastic piping around; it's child's play.
The plumber we had in mind asked for £4,000; yes £4,000 for a one day job!
If this plumber works a five day week, and takes a two week annual holiday, at that rate he would be hoping to earn anywhere up to £1 Million pa.
You're 'avin a larf mate!
