£170 an hour for a gas engineer is expensive isn't it?

Trying to find someone to look at our boiler, have no hot water. Not having much luck tbh. Got through to a company who said their day time call out charges work out to over £170 per hour! I told DH we'll find someone else as they seem hugely expensive. Please tell me that is expensive and not the going rate?!

Good God that's extortionate! What part of the country are you in? I'd ask around your friends and family for a recommendation rather than find someone out of the yellow pages so to speak, at least you can have a half idea they're not ripping you off then!

No where near London! Not the cheapest part but not too bad.

I've got a number from my friend's DH now so will try him tomorrow. It was one we have been trying to get hold of online as I liked the sound of them so fingers crossed!
