too much tradesman bashing goes on on here. if you're not happy, get more quotes, simple. peoples work standard varies wildly, i have used three electricians, 1 is more expensive than the rest, but fully accredited and meticulous, and very busy, 1 is in between, and one isn't fully accredited and a bit rough to be honest. the expensive one does pays every year to join a trade organisation who log each of his jobs, and give a guideline price, and also sort out any disagreements between client and electrician.
also if someone charges 200 a day, its 52,000 a year gross, take out your tax, ni, sick pay, holidays, insurance, transport, tools etc etc, doesn't leave you with much, does it?
i would imagine that some people on here are on fairly comfortable incomes, why shouldn't tradesmen be on the same. i don't that many plumbers/sparkies/brickies driving about in bmw/audi's....
the bottom line is you get what you pay for, also try and get a recommendation from a friend, and get as many quotes as you can
