What? You can negotiate? Wow. Times have changed. They've always had us over a barrel in the past. But I think I may have found the husband of a friend to quote. Is harder to haggle when it's more personal, however. But anything less that the 500-600 quid I've heard about has got to be better.
Depends what you want doing? Normally up to £200 a day but atm my dh has hardly any work on so he would automatically give a lower quote to get the job because the way things are work wise for him/us any money earned is better than none.
