Re: hello all

hiya crow hurst. I've been told that there is lots of domestic work via the yellow pages, sparky friends have told me that they've took themselves out of the the yellow pages because they get too many phone calls for work, and tend to work by word of mouth only. am sure someone will give you a pricing scale they work to soon. Jst keep in mind what you need to pay your self(resonable) + materials, eg if you charge them by the day, (or maybe by the wekk) you'd put £100 Labour + material.
