    Hi guys,

    Need some help to sanity check this quote.

    If anyone with any experience and can tell if this is a fair quote it would be greatly appreciated.

    Discounts are 75% on units 80% on panels cornice 65%w/tops and sink and 80% on appliances. (these weren't on the quote but was told these discounts have been applied ????)

    Link to kitchen https://my-kitchen.howdens.com/plan/RUC1725390001tRW

    Total cost 11847.42.

    I think this range is one of the pricier ones but feels too pricey. might be wrong.

    Thanks

    Plan your own kitchen and get a quote from here https://planner.diy-kitchens.com/plan/fixtures/

    I had a Howdens quote 16 unit kitchen and quartz worktop no appliances was £9500.

    The same design and look and work top was just over 6k from the link I posted.

    These stupid huge discounts......havent companies moved on from that yet.

    It used to be the case that Howdens branches would compete with each other -take your quote to another branch and see if they can beat it.

    Why are you buying that? it's poor quality and poor value.

    Get a reputable brand.

    Thanks for your replies. The lack of transparency with the quotes is very off putting if I'm honest.

    I'll try DIY kitchens and Benchmarx next.

    I thought the price felt high. It's higher than wren so I knew something wasn't right :)

    That’s not a bad price for £75,000 worth of kitchen units!!

    Yeah bargain ha ha

    What sort of price should I be aiming for. I am looking to get some kind of baseline.

    No idea, I guess £11,800 is your baseline for now.

    I used DIYkitchens.com and liked them. The only issues I see with my kitchen is a couple of mm sag in the centre of the 1000mm wall units and the corner units tend to touch the next one when you close it. I’d expect a better hinge to stop that happening.

    For me they seemed a bit dodgy at first with the DIY name and online ordering so I went to their showroom at Pontefract and was very impressed.

    They have their carcasses on display next to Howdens, Benxhmark and Wren so you can compare them.

    Better kitchens are cheaper than DIY Kitchens for mine.

    DIY kitchens quality seems good enough but the after sales tech support leaves a lot to be desired, they are extremely quick to replace anything that's faulty but any more in depth questions they don't really have any technical expertise.

    After completing cabinet install i've had decent aftersales with Better Kitchens (so far).

    Although negatives;

    1. Self assembled oven housing was 5 mm out on a draw underneath the oven slot, when opening to remove it appeared to had been drilled a few times to get right (apprentice work?)
    2. Not really fault of supplier, however the haleafe pull out bin doesn't allow me to get the bins out unless i pull the draws out.
    3. Smart tool they use to fit up plinths/pelmets has given me only 75% of the pelmet, however they do state on the website if its out "its foC on them to send more"....funnily they'd sent too much plinth.q

    Positives

    1. I ordered the wrong sized tall units (went with 2150 and needed 1970), they were absolutely excellent at helping out here, I was in an absolute tiswas as I had a 300MM Larder unit and FF integrated thinking I would have to reorder new ones....however they gave me the solution, cut down and they'd send a replacement door for free!
    2. I'd forgotten an end panel for the tall unit, so they offered to send this FoC too along with the door
