Google found this which suggests the full day rate in London is around £375+Vat. You got 8 man hours for £360 (inc Vat ?).

https://www.my-plumber.co.uk/prices/plumbing/

Rad valves vary from about £5 to £20 so depends what they fitted.

Fernox F1 is probably around £12-£15.

Overall it seems ok.

No, but probably the going rate, depending on where you are located.

Don't forget additional expenses, Travel etc. cost isn't just the time on site.

In most cases, a good handyman is a far more cost-effective for small works.

If anything I would question the need for 2 Tradesmen.

I had new valves fitted to 10 radiator and some fernox put into the system
Plumber charged me £500
£180 for himself
&180 for his mate
£160 for valves and fernox

They were there for 4 hours

Is this a reasonable price
