Newman Plumbing Pricing
We know that it can be difficult for customers to try and establish the exact cost of plumbing services. That’s why at Newman Plumbing we try to make the process as transparent as possible. We do this by only quoting fixed prices for jobs and plumbing services provided. That way you know precisely how much the job will cost and you won’t have to worry about any nasty surprises when you receive the bill.
What factors can affect your plumbing costs?
The exact price we charge is dependent on a number of factors, including: The time allocated, materials involved and equipment required for the completion of the job.
Some jobs take longer than others. For example, if you only need to fix a leaky tap, it should only take a couple of hours max. However, a complete bathroom fit-out will take a few days and cost significantly more.
Where you live
Newman Plumbing cover the Melbourne Eastern Suburbs, but we can carry out plumbing jobs across the Melbourne area. We charge a fixed fee for covering the Melbourne area, but the exact amount charged would depend on the distance we have to travel.
Don’t let this discourage you though. Bear in mind that actual travel time only represents a small percentage of your bill. Sometimes it is better to pay more for a plumber you know will carry out quality work than trust an unknown plumber in your local area who charges less.
The quality of fittings and fixtures used.
At Newman Plumbing we always factor in the quality of fixtures and fittings that are required to carry out the job. We never compromise on the quality of the components we use but sometimes we may be able to recommend a cheaper alternative.
What if it’s an emergency?
If you need a plumber in an emergency you may be charged more, especially after hours, on the weekend or a public holiday. We will notify you of our emergency call-out fee before we attend.
Do you charge an hourly fee or price per job?
Unlike other plumbers, we only quote fixed fees for jobs. This allows you to know exactly how much the job will cost and ensures you won’t get an unpleasant surprise when you receive the bill.
Do you charge a plumber’s call-out fee?
The short answer is yes. While we know there are plumbers who don’t charge call-out fees, we feel that this practice compromises the quality of work. As a local family-owned business with over 30 years’ experience, we take pride in providing reliable plumbing services in and around Melbourne. We will never do anything, which compromises our reputation or the quality of our plumbing service.
A call-out fee is necessary to help cover the costs of the following items:
- The time required to reach your location
- The cost of fuel to reach your location
- The cost of maintaining licences and registrations
- The training costs required to ensure our plumbers are always trained in the safest plumbing techniques
- The cost of general administration including invoicing and accounting
