How to get the cheapest quotes when looking for a bathroom fitter

When you’re looking for the cheapest quotes for a bathroom fitter, remember not to be completely driven by price. It’s crucial to consider a bathroom fitter’s quality of work, experience and reputation as well. However, if you're looking to find cost-effective quotes, here are our top tips:

Research and compare: Start by researching multiple bathroom fitters in your area. Look for those with positive reviews and a good reputation. Obtain quotes from several fitters so you can compare their prices and services – use HaMuch to get in touch with a range of professionals in your area.

Be specific with your requests: Provide detailed specifications of the work you want to have done. This will help the fitters understand the scope of the project and provide accurate quotes. If you know that you want specific fixtures or fittings, make sure you let them know this so they can factor in the cost.

Ask for a breakdown: Request a breakdown of the quote from each fitter. This will help you understand how they've calculated the costs for different elements of the project. It will also allow you to identify any areas where you may be able to make cost-saving adjustments without compromising quality.

Negotiate: Once you've received your quotes, don't hesitate to negotiate with the fitters. Discuss your budget and ask if they can offer any discounts or cost-saving suggestions. Sometimes, fitters may be willing to adjust their prices to secure the job.

Remember, it's crucial to strike a balance between cost and quality. Choosing a reputable and experienced bathroom fitter, even if they may be slightly more expensive, can save you money in the long run by ensuring a high-quality and durable installation.

Choosing a bathroom fitter

Choosing a bathroom fitter is an important decision that can significantly impact the outcome of your project. Consider these factors when you’re choosing a bathroom fitter:

Experience: Look for bathroom fitters with a proven track record and relevant experience in bathroom installations. Check their portfolio or ask for references to see examples of their previous work. A fitter with expertise in the specific type of project you want them to carry out, for example a downstairs toilet or luxury bathroom renovation, can be particularly beneficial.

Reputation and reviews: Research the fitter's reputation by reading online reviews, testimonials or asking for recommendations from friends and family who have had bathroom work done. Positive feedback and recommendations can indicate reliability, professionalism and customer satisfaction.

Check qualifications: Verify that the bathroom fitter has the necessary qualifications, and certifications to carry out the work. This ensures that they have undergone proper training and will adhere to industry standards and any building regulations.

Check their insurance coverage: Confirm that the fitter has public liability insurance. This protects you from liability in case of accidents, injuries or damage that may occur during the project.

Assess their communication: Assess your bathroom fitter's communication skills and professionalism during your initial consultation with them. A good fitter should be attentive, responsive and willing to listen to your ideas and concerns. They should also provide suggestions and recommendations based on their expertise.

Ask about guarantees and warranties: Ask your bathroom fitter whether they offer any guarantees or warranties. Many reputable fitters offer them against their work and the materials, giving you peace of mind that you won’t have to pay out if something goes wrong.

Be cautious of very low prices: While we all want to get a reasonable quote that fits our budget, it’s important to remember price isn’t everything. Compare quotes from multiple fitters but be wary of significantly lower prices that may indicate compromised quality or hidden costs.

Trust your gut: Ultimately, trust your instincts. If you feel comfortable and confident in the fitter's abilities and professionalism, it can be a positive indication that they are the right choice for your project.

Bathroom ideas and costs

Small bathroom renovation cost

Small bathrooms don’t have to be boring. There are lots of ways that you can make small bathrooms a talking point in your home, including adding feature tiles and splashbacks, using mirrors to create the illusion of more space and using bold colours. The good thing about small bathrooms is they will generally cost less to renovate!

How much your small bathroom renovation will cost will depend on:

  • The size of the bathroom
  • What brand of sanitaryware (toilet, sink etc.) you choose
  • Whether you are having tiles
  • Where you live

Bathroom tiling cost

A great way to update your bathroom without huge cost is to get it re-tiled. Subway-style tiles with grey grouting is very popular in British homes, as is using pops of colour around the bathroom.

How much your bathroom tiling project costs is impacted by a few things:

  • The size of the area you would like to have tiled
  • The brand of tiles you choose
  • Whether the tiles are large or small
  • Your property’s location
