And why wouldn't you like a nice new cheap kitchen. Just think, you don't have to notify LABC before doing the electrics.
That's what comes of someone posting to say the new Approved Part P document (Draft for the study for the use of) is a charter for kitchen fitters!!

I believe the software automatically removes the links. The posts / topics have to be manually deleted.

Looking at the price, there are either a lot of hidden extras, or someone nearby coming into their kitchen to make breakfast and finding an empty room.

Regards,

Alan.

When you look at the likely cost of the appliances and the price this company is charging, then it does make you think exactly what you are getting for your money......

It is the same advert as was posted last week apart from now being Cardiff instead of Leicester.

It was soon removed but that was on a working day!

They're being removed every day and the accounts responsible are being banned from posting. Alan's correct that the links are removed automatically; it's meant as a deterrent, the reasoning being that if the spammer can see that their posts do not contain links then they will stop posting (although in this case it's clearly not having that effect).

I do receive a notification of any post with certain keywords in it, and while I'm in the office I have a feed of posts by new users (I have to be on the IET's network to see the feed). Currently, however, I'm not in the office so I'm not able to check as frequently as I would normally.

They'll want to come round at take photos to put in their brochure or, better still, their magazine that goes out to everyone who enquires - for a small fee, of course!)

I would like to know the reasons of your for not accepting a cheap kitchen as these are the days where the common man can't survive with a little amount for all the needs. As far as my budget is concerned, I used to save as money as possible for the purpose of my daughters education by saving them from my kitchen appliances.

I am interested what sort of kitchen you can do for under 600 quid when my cooker cost more than that by its self.

If you want someone to do the electircs and issue some certs I am sure there are planty of people on here willing to do it for the right price

If this is a real wtf don't you pay to advertise

as they say IF IT'S GOOD TO BE TRUE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Ditto..
You have attempted to advertise on a national public forum, nay international, which would suggest you are, or giving the appearance of being a much larger outfit than at first glance.

I did a rough costing of the cheapest appliances
and
came up with a figure around £900
Which included:
Cooker hob and oven £250
Fridge / freezer £150
Dish Washer £250
Washing machine £200
Microwave oven £60

You charge, i think, around the £528 mark. Does this include VAT?

The adverts don't say anything about fitted appliances, or what the appliances are. A Tesco Value microwave and kettle could be had for under £50. There might even be enough change for a Value toaster.

Throw in a handful of cheap kitchen units and a worktop. Assume that all the plumbing and electrics are already there, and it probably is possible to fit a "kitchen" for £650.
