£3300 is the average cost of a complete rewire of a 3 bed semi detached house, although its unclear if the job is a complete rewire or just a partial rewire? Probably advisable to get three quotes so you can do a proper comparison between them.

it does also depend on what quality switch gear they are using also it does not look like a spec for a rewire. The list seems to be a price for general remedial work. sounds a bit pricey to me... get a few quotes
