The daily rate is usually cheaper if we undertake the work on a project over several days. If your job is smaller we can usually supply a professional tradesperson on a day rate basis as shown below:

About our pricing model
We use a clear and transparent pricing model.
We are a large professional organisation, with a team of over 100 tradespeople and office staff. We have fully staffed offices in the West End of London and a 24 hour call center.
We provide quality work. As such, we cannot and do not compete with
small unregistered companies or individuals. If you are looking for a
cheap painting and decorating quote and your criteria for purchase is
only price - we are not the company you are looking for.
All our work is guaranteed by us and we use only high quality materials.
While we can't tell you how long the job will take until we've
visited you at your property, we can provide a model for pricing that
we will honour.
This ensures, unlike other painting and decorating companies in London, that
we will not give disparate pricing, depending on how much we think you
will pay. Everyone pays the same rate.
What to look for when selecting a painting and decorating company
If you are looking for your painting and decorating project to be of
high quality, safe, efficient and cost effective - then you might want
to take these points into consideration when selecting a painting and decorating company.
- Does the company have examples of their work?
- Do they have a professional looking website?
- Is the company looking to be paid in cash?
- Is the company VAT registered? If not why?
- Remember: A company only needs to turnover £60,000 to be legally required to register for VAT
- If they are not VAT registered they are either inexperienced or they are operating illegally
- Will the company provide a fully specified, broken down quotation?
- Will the company provide a contract and levels of service they will commit to?
- Do they have a landline telephone number that they can be contacted on or just a mobile number?
- Does anyone answer the telephone?
While there are many good painting and decorating companies around
London, there are also some disreputable ones. It is prudent to ask
these questions before committing or handing over any money.
