Plumbing Price Survey

plumbing price survey

Hi folks,
recently we carried out a plumbing price survey. We asked some plumbers on our website to what they charge for a callout fee and what is their hourly rate. Here is a selection of the replies we got below:-

Mark from Bettystown: My own rates are e70+VAT 13.5% for call out which covers 1st hour on job.

Michael from Leixlip: e80 euro call includes first hour.. e45 an hr after that

Jamie from Drogheda: Call out e70.. Hourly e40

Ian from Ballinasloe: I charge ¬70 for a call out and am currently charging ¬35 per hour

Sydney from St Margarets: No call out, e75 +VAT an hour for the first hour up to 5 o’clock

Fergus from Dunleer: I usually charge approximately 50 Euro for call out including the first hour I’m working there.

Derek from Lucan: 65euro for a job hourly rate 30 euro

Tom from Mullingar: About e80.00. Hourly rate depends on how many hours and distance travelled e30- e40

Noel from Kimmage: I personally charge 80 euro for a call out fee. Then 40 euro per hour but depends on job .

Pat from Tallaght: Callout e65

Jack from Churchtown: 50 to 60 call out.45 per hour after that.

David from Galway: Service is available 24/7.  Prices vary from €30 to €100 per hour depending on time of day and day of week.

Kieran from Swords: I don’t charge for a call out usually 60 euro for the first hour

The majority of plumbers in Dublin were quoting a fee for calling out (which included the first hour) of between €60 and €80 and an hourly rate thereafter of €35 to €45 per hour.   The callout charges were similar outside of Dublin with hourly rates ranging from €30 to €40 per hour.

I hope this helps some of you who are interested in getting some plumbing done in the near future whether it’s a repair or maintenance of an existing installation or a new installation.
