If you happen to be purchasing your fitted kitchen from a company like Homebase, Wickes or B&Q, you will likely be offered a fitting service, and of course at an additional cost. This can often be a bit of a shock (particularly if you already have a price in your head), as there's a big mark-up on this kind of service, and it will probably be twice as much as you were expecting. There's a logical reason behind this, and that is because the fitters themselves will receive fifty percent of this money, whilst the company put the other 50% into their already overflowing bank account.

So, there are a couple of benefits from using these fitting services, the main one being that guarantees are included, and you are able to contact the original company if there are any issues. Nonetheless, because local installers from the Margate area will probably be used by a company like Wickes, there's really no rationale why you cannot cut 50 percent off the bill and arrange these services directly. Locally based Margate kitchen installers still have their good reputations to maintain, and will usually be glad to resolve any issues, so not only will you save money, but additionally avoid the need to trudge through the excruciatingly slow and "clunky" complaints system of a massive national DIY chain!

They are renowned for delivering the wrong products, not including everything in your order and having fittings, parts and fixtures missing from individual cartons. In almost all kitchens bought from DIY chains, the cupboards will be delivered in flat-pack cartons, so they'll have to be assembled on-site, it is crucial that all the packages are checked on delivery, since missing items can cause massive delays to the installation.

Due to all of these issues, and others I won't mention here, a lot of kitchen fitters in Margate will not work for such chains, and aren't even keen to fit kitchens supplied by them. So, in the first instance ask around and get some feedback on these kitchens.
