Measuring, planning & estimating
As you can imagine offering this service is time consuming, costs money & sometimes guarantees no return. Nine times out of ten we get the job as we are, by far, the cheapest carpet suppliers on the Island, however, we are always inundated with price shoppers and this takes a lot of our valuable time up and costs us fuel and wear and tear on our vehicles. We have now decided to charge for such a service.
What does this service involve?
We have to come to you to:
a) draw a rough diagram of the room(s)
b) note any potential problems
c) take precise measurements
d) pull back old carpet to see the condition of the underlay
e) plan the most economical way of fitting the new carpet with the carpet chosen taking into consideration pattern matching, pile direction, widths available, seams etc. Hall, stairs & landings we have to prepare a cutting plan so that the carpet fitter can cut those areas out of one piece of carpet.
f) work out costs
g) check stocks with our supplier
h) prepare & send you an electronic estimate
Often a customer will change their mind about which carpet to have and this requires a re-plan.
All things considered a minimal charge for measuring, planning & estimating will be £20 per visit.
This is payable in cash only before measuring takes place.
