    Quoted £6850 for Avant Ivory kitchen in March by a kitchen fitter, finally came again the other day to finalise after lots of phone calls .
    But he's now adding £1500 on to price ?!?!?
    Says his original quote didnt include the end panels(9 off).Not his fault, it was the suppliers, they didnt include them on the original price.
    I said thats alot for end panels ! and he then said oh the kitchen price has gone up as well .

    Does this sound feasable or should I get another quote.

    thanks in advance for any advice

    Avant Ivory? made by who?

    £1500 = 9 end panels, he's squeezing your balls mate bearing in mind a 10 x 6 mfc ivory board costs about £40 I'll supplt them at half the price he's quoted

    I'd say yeap, you don't meantion sink appliences so yes quite expensive, in sheffield anyway.

    You are talking 4 grands worth of units (maybe less) and 2 grand to fit I'd be happy with that.

    If you price it up at

    and you won't need end panels as they are matching units then whack £1500 I'll come fit it for you

    No appliances then?

    It's on the expensive side to be fair.

    What worktops are they and how many at what dimensions has he got down on the quote?

    £400 for an undermount sink is on the expensive side as well although it would depend what spec. it is.

    how have you found this guy, has he been recommended or referred from a supplier

    we are in manchester and would be charging around £1800 for the total fit

    Magnet charge in excess of £100 retail for some of their high gloss endpanels so he is probably charging you full whack.

    Without knowing the quality of that make its hard to say if he is overcharging you. I'm doing a fit in a couple of weeks price includes integrated fridge, undermount sinks, two dishwashers all plumbing, electrics and tiling already done and it comes out at £50k and the AGA is on top of that.
