You'd be better off posting this in the "Wiring and the regulations" forum, which is full of electricians.

Who is OLCI?
All they are doing is dangling a carrot to entice you to spend your money with them.

All of the prices are too little for where i am in essex and miles too cheap for central london. You have to remember that you have to pay for materials/ other staff/ tax/ liability insurance/ van and fuel and insurance/ disposal of rubbish/ NIC etc fees/ accountants fees/ national insurance/ corporation tax etc out of all that, its not straight in your pocket.

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine....

Every man has to know his limitations- Dirty Harry
