It cost me £250 for my 3rd floor flat. This quote was taking a pipe from the mains and running a pipe 10m to the back of the block of flats. From there we ran our own pipe as they wanted to use scaffolding costing £600+ to put the meter in the house 60ft up.
john s et al British gas and transco are not the only people allowed to quote for this work they kep this information very close to there chest for obvious reasons we are currently negotiating with an independent firm to lay electric and gas too a site with approximately 200 plots will hunt out the name of the firm and post it tomorrow
when I had my meter changed from inside the house to a flush box on the wall outside, British Gas charged me £200 15 years ago......and I had to collect and fit the box, and do the internal connections. All they did was disconnect old meter, and fit new one!!
