There are a lot of variables so more information and a site visit would be needed really, but it could be anything form £30 to £300 depending on whats needed, how much space there is and if the existing fusebox is obsolete or if parts can be obtained for it?

Hello deng_21.

To change a consumer unit (fuseboard) Does vary in price, it depends on the number of circuits and also the condition of them circuits based upon a pre works assessment test.

To extend into another consumer unit, normally using a 'garage box' type board would be around a cost of about £100 for installation and testing.

I hope this helps to answer your question.
