An Information Sheet on the Price of Moving/Repositioning or Fitting a Radiator

Sorry if it all sounds complicated but I’m trying to second guess your radiator requirements and I’ve never met you. I’m perfectly happy banging away at my keyboard, divorced from the world, in my little leaking garret. I didn't build it by the way (the garret), and I know how to fix it but I don't have the time - I'm too busy saving you money!
