View Full Version : IEC 60309 / Commando socket installation cost

Hi all,

Hopefully I've picked the appropriate subforum. It's been a while since I've been active, but I'm presently trying to get my garage sorted out as a workshop, and, ideally, I'd like to install a higher amperage socket (eg., for welders).

I've received one quote so far for installing a single phase (blue) 32A IEC socket which is about 260+VAT, which seems a little steep. The distribution box is in the garage, so it works out at, at most, an unobstructed run of perhaps 4m of cable and 60 (inc VAT) for parts (Type D MCB, isolator, cable and socket).

I am correct in thinking it's expensive or is that about par for the money considering labour and part P registration?

If anyone has had similar work done recently I'd be interested in how much you had to fork out.
