Re: looking to update en-suite

Just come back from the shop and have to say very impressed with the presentation, that is the art of a good salesman. Also the art of a customer is to bargain which I did. if we go with this company I squeezed out a couple of extras like shelving for nothing for champoos and soap saving about 100 or so.

Got another company tomorrow so have to see what they come up with, the third company seem to not really want the work as they turn up a day late or not at all, so don't think we will be going with them.

Learn't very early on first impressions can win or loose an order , even the first 5 seconds on a phone call

A computerised view of how it will look finished Obviously not showing all tiling etc


So we gain quite a bit of open space and have a modern look. Anyway that is the idea

Re: looking to update en-suite

Just had this morning a lady from anothe company to give us a quote.
Have to say not impressed at all, seemed very disinterested and give none of her own thoughts or any imput. She was more interested in our consumer unit and boiler which are both new and up to date. got the general feeling that she was out to add unnecessry work to increase her bonus.

To us it showed a stark difference between someone who had worked in the trade and gone on to sales, against someone just selling.

Re: looking to update en-suite

had a phone call this afternoon to say the new wall tiles are going to be delivered on Monday afternoon. By that time we should have got the other estimates in, don't hold out much hope. One company hasn't sent their plumber around to price up and he other the woman was just a sales person with no working knowledge

Re: looking to update en-suite

Yes we went and paid a deposit and they are so busy the earliest date available is after 20 April. That is even after they have had two job cancellations.

Still no quote from another firm and an excuse by an other why they have not been to work out the plumbing and costs.

Too late now, can't imagine why anyone would turn down a multi thousand pound job. But no one really wanted it is all i can assune.

Re: looking to update en-suite

well they have started on the en-suite modernisation here. The tardis is out and now the tiles are coming off the walls. Double layers of tiles so a lot of rubble to remove. When they have finished for the day I will, if I remember, to put up photos so far
