How much should it cost to replace a fuse box ?

Posted by Dori Dedu, on
I need to replace an old fuse box. I have been quoted £300 for this job which includes 6 way fuse box rcd protected. I have no idea if this is a typical price. Please let me know.'

I charge £290 for a 10 way metal dual Rcd splitter board with new main tails fully certificated under Part P . It should be a Metal consumer unit that is fitted .

Hi dori. I think.300 is a little he mite only be a day if that.. The materials aren't that expensive.either. How about asking him to break down the quotation.with his labour cost. And how long the job will take. Also.may be a good ask what materials he needs.and trying a little shop may find youl save a little bit of money. . Thanks.n jones.

Hi As Joe stated that's prob about the rate. Like he also said though you may also need a earth bonding upgrade. Check with your installer about this and also he will need to give you an electrical installation certificate for this work and also notify local council under apart P Thanks

I would say thats about right, some people would charge a bit more others a little bit less, it can also depend on how involved, the job is, for example you may need to extend wires to reach the new positions within the fuse board, or the installer may need to rectify faults found wilst testing, or need to upgrade the bonding, some people will include this in the price, others would say it £300, then once there doing the job alert you to the fact "it must be done in order to certificate," then charge more................For fuse board up grades, its probably best to get someone to look at the installation first, so there arnt any hidden charges..............Hope that helps
