If, like many homeowners in Wakefield, you're intending to buy your new kitchen from a superstore chain such as B&Q, Wickes or Homebase, you'll discover that they offer a kitchen installation service. This is obviously an additional cost that will be tagged onto the price of the kitchen. There could well be a sudden intake of breath when you hear a price for this, because it will probably be close to twice as much as you were hoping to pay. The reason for this is that they will give around 50 percent of this to the actual installers and keep half as profit for themselves.

Now, these sub-contracted installation services do carry a few benefits, but not enough to explain such a hike in the price. They are huge companies, so you will likely be recompensed if there are any issues, and the fitting does come with certain guarantees. Having said that, because local kitchen fitters from the Wakefield area will probably be used by someone like Wickes, there is no rationale why you can't save yourself half of the money and arrange such services directly. Local Wakefield kitchen fitters will still have their reputations to preserve, and will usually be perfectly happy to resolve any problems, so not only will you save yourself some cash, but you'll furthermore avoid the requirement to wade through the woefully slow and "clunky" complaints system of a huge national DIY chain!

When buying new kitchens from some of these big companies, it pays to be be aware that certain problems quite commonly occur, and some firms are well known for it. They are renowned for having fittings, fixtures and parts missing from individual packs, delivering the wrong products and not including everything listed in your order. It is normal for kitchen units to come in flat-pack cartons, especially when ordered from DIY chains, and to save inconvenient and costly delays to the installation, you'll have to carefully check that everything is delivered correctly, and that all the packages are there and containing the right components (not as easy as it sounds).

Lots of kitchen installers in Wakefield avoid working for such companies, or even carry out the installation of their kitchens, owing to these kinds of concerns, so it's advisable to check first. With that said, if fitted correctly and cared for, some of the kitchen cabinets from these companies will last for a number of years, and are good value for money and of acceptable quality.
