Plumbers labourer?

Hi There,
I have recently received several quotes for a full bathroom refit for labour only, each quote for labour varies slightly & all quotes include a labourer as part of the quote but dont state exactly what the labourer cost is, the reason I ask is money is very tight at the min ( as it is for most people ) I also recently got made redundant and therefore I am at home most of the day everyday therefore what skills do you need to be a plumbers labourer? and how much is this likely to save me? because if it is something i could do i would rather do this to help save me a little money.

Many Thanks.

Can vary as much as the actual plumbers labour cost, labourers may be paid anything from £60 a day upwards, not being a plumber I can't say exactly but personally would pay my labourers around £100 a day depending on job.
However whether the plumber would allow you to labour for them is a completely different matter, I'd imagine most may not be keen on a customer working alongside them, if perhaps there was any prep work you could do yourself to save some of the plumbers time that may be an option.

I very much doubt that any plumber would want the customer to labour for them. I certainly wouldnt want customers trying to help. Its a non starter in my book. If you havent got the money don't do it. Simples! If you get a plumber mad enough to agree to it you will need to set out IN VERY CLEAR terms how much the price will be with and without your help. I firmly predict that will end in a fall out between you and tradesman.
