For all landlords, owner-occupiers, property managers, small companies – if you think you are going to require maintenance repair work on a fairly frequent basis, then you can make a saving on our standard rates by choosing one of the three bundles below, representing savings between 12-20%.
Bundle 1 – £350 + VAT (£420)
(12% discount on labour charges)
Bundle 2 – £695 + VAT (£834)
(16% discount on labour charges)
Bundle 3 – £995 + VAT (£1,195)
(20% discount on labour charges)
This is how it works
Pre-pay one of the above amounts (like an ‘on-account’ payment) and in return receive the specified discount on any future call-outs until your ‘on-account’ pot is empty. At this point you can decide if you wish to top-up to continue receiving the applicable discount. Dependent on your requirements, you can buy the bundle that suits your particular needs best.
For example, if you have purchased ‘bundle 2’ then you now have £834 (incl. VAT) in your pot. Let’s say you have a problem with a rental property and require an electrician to fix this. The electrician attends and spends 1.5 hours on site and £15+VAT materials.
Your invoice breakdown would now look like this
Labour £135 (£162) Materials £15 (£18) Total £150 (£180) Less 16% discount on labour £22 (£26) New grand total £129 (£155) On account deduction for labour £115 (136)
(taken from pot of £834 leaving £698)
Balance now due £15 (£18)
(which needs to be settled separately)
(All figures in parenthesis signify including VAT – and all figures have been rounded to the nearest one pound for illustration purposes)
Which bundle should I choose?
If you work on the basis that you may require the following reactive maintenance for one property over 12 months (only factoring in labour charges), then you can approximate what you need.
- Gas Safety Certificate = £90+VAT
- Plumber (wet) call-out of 1.5 hours = £120+VAT
- Handyman rate 2-hour call-out = £115+VAT
- Electrician – call-out (1 hour) = £90+VAT
Total labour charge
(without a bundle) for the year
£415+VAT = £498 Total labour charge
(with ‘bundle 2’ = 16% disc) for the year
£348.60+VAT = £418.30…nearly £80 saving. Your on-account balance £834 less £418.32 = £415.68
(Price inclusive of VAT shown in brackets)
