Looking for good contractors? Click here for your request

well, let me give u some advice, for all to see, instead of just pm-ing u.

1. normally if u deduct fridge, your base should left around 15ft +/-. $600 is too ex for this works.

2. again, shower kerb for 2 don't cost that much.

3.this is an extra cost.

4. this price normally is given by movers with company. non company movers will give a lower rate. but of cos, with company will be more careful of your things.

5. expensive, since item 3 also has some materials concerning with flooring

6. a bit ex.

7. still alright if its inclusive of grilles (though higher than market price by a bit, but they still need to earn , haggle price all depends on u)

8. a bit ex

9.ok, acceptable

10. I don't know how design is your designer cabinet, but at more than $160 per ft run, its expensive

11. ex

12. no comments as there are many variables to it




16. acceptable

17. ex

18.ok, acceptable

19. only (e) is questionable. what do u mean by run exposed pipe after city gas?

20. no comments as electric items not firm up yet.

21.$1300? to me, I don't think it cost so much. infact, if u go to a contractor, which I think he is able to do all the above items, u don't really need an ID. some more have 7% gst?? 31k gst is $2170, I think u should save up this gst money to get yourself an awesome TV or fridge.

verdict? way no due to many overprice items.

1. Too expensive, mine cost $380 and ID purchase titles from HDB contractor, never use my spare tiles. 

2. Mine cost $120 for kerb in 1 bathroom, ID purchases tiles.

3. Purchase what prepacked materials, cement? Seem like double charge, cement should come with tiling. 

4. Haulage and debris removal, mine is $350 but I don't have tiles. Yours should not be much more than mine. 

5. 4rm living rm+ bedrooms should be around 700sqf. Your tiling cost 12psf is slightly high, if combined with item 3 then is expensive.

6. Expensive. Mine cost $580. 

10. Your cabinet is more than $160 pfr, expensive no doubt.

13. $350pfr for wardrobe, way too expensive.  Mine is $280pfr.

15. $1700 is expensive, mine $1480.


a. Mine $100 for 1 set, including removal of existing sink. 

b. Mine same price.

e. mine $280, yours expensive.

f. Mine free, treat as bathroom accessories. 

21. Mine free. This is extra fees.
