Quotation & Acceptance

By accepting RDM Services quotation by telephone, e-mail or fax, The Customer agrees to be bound by RDM Services Terms and Conditions.

We reserve the right to refuse or decline work at Our own discretion. Where The Company agrees to carry out works for The Customer, these works shall be undertaken by the designated Operative of The Company at its absolute discretion. All prices are subject to an inspection of The Customer’s property and written quotation which shall remain valid for a period of 60 days. On acceptance of a quotation The Customer gives Us permission to order/purchase materials/items required for works as stated within the quotation.

Quotations are based on assessment of the work to be done, and are itemized estimates of all the work to be completed. While every effort is made to quote work as accurately as possible, it is sometimes necessary to include an additional sum in the final account for items and labour, which could not be foreseen at the estimation stage. These items will always be discussed and confirmed with The Customer at the earliest opportunity. RDM Services reserves the right to amend the initial quotation, should The Customer's original requirements change.

Where a quote has been supplied to The Customer, the total amount required in the quote may be revised in the following circumstances:

  1. If after submission of the quote, The Customer instructs The Company (whether verbally or in writing) to carry out additional works not referred to in the original quotation
  2. If after submission of the quote, there is an increase in the price of materials
  3. If after submission of the quote, it is discovered that further works need to be carried out which were not anticipated when the quote was prepared.
  4. If after submission of the quote, it is discovered that there was a manifest error when the quote was prepared

The price is based on The Customer's supplied items being designed for standard UK plumbing and electrical fittings, sizes and ratings. Unless otherwise stated all tiling is assumed to be ceramic, non mosaic and smaller than 20cm square, and of a uniform width and thickness. Spot lights supplied are standard 240v 50w with chrome surround, unless otherwise specified.

The Company shall not be under any obligation to provide a quote to The Customer and shall only be bound by a quote given in writing to The Customer & signed by an authorised representative of The Company. The Company shall not be bound by any quotes given verbally or in which manifest errors occur.

If it is deemed impossible for Us to commence works on a previously agreed quotation, We will supply You with a new free of charge quotation, which You can review and choose to accept or decline. If You wish to decline the updated quote, there will be no charge payable by You.

Where it is deemed impossible to continue works that have already been commenced at Your Property due to no fault or consequence of Our own, and where materials have already been purchased by Us, the cost of all materials will be the responsibility of The Customer.

Timescales are estimated and dependent on material and labour availability. Time frames given in days are working, rather than calendar days, and assume unimpeded access and scheduling of works.
