Simple, honest pricing for our customers

At Baker Smith we believe in being very clear and transparent about all aspects of our work for you, and this certainly includes our prices.

If we are visiting you only to provide an estimate, for instance for a boiler change or new central heating system, then this is given absolutely free of charge and without obligation.

For other visits, such as repairs and fixes, I’ve outlined the charges we make below, as well as providing you a bit more explanation about each service.

Covid-19 Guidance

We will be attending to all routine, urgent and emergency plumbing, gas and central heating jobs as recommended by the current Government Covid 19 recommendations and we are also estimating for new work.

Our priority is the safety of our customers. Everyone at Baker Smith takes lateral flow tests twice weekly and all engineers wear masks and carry disposable gloves and overshoes in case they are needed. Sanitizer is kept in every vehicle. All staff have been trained in the correct procedures to keep you and themselves safe.
