    Hi readers

    So then, i have recently joined forces with MFI as another (outlet) my first fit for them is in a few weeks. but I keep hearing horror stories from other fitters..

    Has anybody fitted for them and if so,then whats the craic?

    I will however be fitting this kitchen as its worth £960 over 3 days. and i dont want to let the customer down.

    Cheers any input will be read with one eye squinted...

    give it a bash, better regret something you have done than something you haven't let me know how you get on, I've been thinking of doing the same.

    £960 over 3 days does that include, plastering, plumbing, tiling, electrics and binning the old one

    It realy is so very much to do with remeadial payments, in my oppinion . they want you to work to rediculas £25.00 per fit almost regardless of the reason for the delay or damage or shortages or compleate delivery failures. and most of which is not in your control. but if i were you get them to sign an agreement for each remeadial you do when the cost will go beyond £25.00 or refuse to even do it . sounds harsh i know but been there done that. but best of luck

    MFI are now under new ownership

    the original owners are now consentrating on running Howdens.

    yes welldone mate, but they are good prompt payers anyway. its the remedial payments that your going to have trouble with them in my experiance.
