Plumber and electrician required

edited December 1969 in General
I have nearly completed a small apartment and have installed all the electrics via ring mains and mounted the gas boiler into position and ran all the water pipes to it. ( by proffesion I am a builder )

I now need a reliable and qualified electrician just to make the final connection and to check safety

and the plumber to connect the gas pipe and install the flue and check safety also ( immissions and carbon monoxide etc)

I did ask locally at the time but I was quoted some absolute horrendous prices for just a few hours work, ( three in my estimation ) and I was quoted 16hrs and 320 euro just for the boiler with me buying all the fittings which I thought was taking advantage . I could undertake the work myself, but I do consider safety a priority, especially where gas and electricity is concerned, hence the enquiry, but being in the industry I know what is involved and what anticipated costs are likely to be and this well exceeds UK costs, so something is wrong somewhere.

Any suggestions please who I can contact who offers a fair and realistic service ? I am back on the island In January 07 and nr Ponta de sol
