How can I find a reputable plumber in the Ipswich area?
At MyBuilder, we check ID and evaluate skills for all applicants, and over a third of these don’t make it through our careful vetting process.
You can also read reviews left by previous customers to give you extra confidence when you’re deciding who should take on a job. If a tradesperson is new to MyBuilder and doesn’t have any reviews yet, feel free to ask them for references from previous customers.
You can also check whether your plumber is Gas Safe registered (this is essential for any jobs involving gas pipework), and whether they are a member of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE). These certifications can give you a bit of extra confidence in your choice of plumber.

How much does a plumber in Ipswich cost?
You can usually expect to pay between £40 and £70 per hour for plumbing work in Ipswich. Be aware that you may also pay a call-out fee, so it’s worth checking this with your shortlisted tradesperson before you confirm the job.
It’s no surprise that urgent plumbing jobs like a broken boiler or burst pipe typically cost more than routine ones and you could be looking at paying around £120 per hour. Jobs that come up outside normal working hours also tend to cost more.
More information on hourly rates can be found in our pricing guide.
Will my plumber be local to me in Ipswich?
There are lots of plumbers to choose from in Ipswich and the surrounding areas but finding one that’s close to you makes life a whole lot easier.
Here at MyBuilder, we’ll share your job with plumbers that are local to you, from Warren Heath to Christchurch Park.
Using a local plumber means they should be able to reach you quickly and attend urgent jobs at short notice. You might even avoid having to pay a call-out charge. They should also be familiar with any parking restrictions or routes where traffic can be a problem.
Better still, for any jobs that come up in the future, you’ll already have a local plumber just a phone call away.
