Plumber’s Call-Out Fees

What is the going rate for a plumber’s call-out?

Quite often a service engineer, whether they are a plumber, electrician or heating specialist, will have a standard call out charge. This call out charge is to cover their costs of coming to visit you, and will often vary depending on the time of day and the day of the week. When calling a tradesman out remember to ask them whether they charge a call out fee and how much it is before getting them to come to your house.
