    Depends on the quality of work, where you work etc, driving definitely helps towards securing a better wage but it's not an absolute must

    Depends where you are and the quality of work. Ive commented on here before about a daily wage that recieved a laugh from spacey, but all the fitters i know self employed are on £250 day rate atleast and thats if the job doesnt pay. Get more on price, around south london kent area

    I’d never pay a fitter £250 a day on day rate. £150-200 is going rate my way.

    Earn the same doing parcels, this games too physically demanding to be hammering your body in my opinion for a wage you can earn doing something easy. To good fitters, id say dont undervalue yourself and to employers/shop owners id say respect and pay your workers if you want good fitters and good work done. Rates are different across the country i guess

    £1000 a week doing parcels day rate. I’ll tell my mate that as he earns half that.

    We mainly do LVT and I want to win jobs so charging silly money to lay it I won’t have much work. Up here I have 4 other flooring shops in the same town. I’m fitting every day still as can’t find good enough fitters to do domestic work for me.

    I know a lot of drivers, and none that I know earn £200 a day.
    Most guys that I know, including in the London area want between £160-£200 a day, with a view to earning around 1k a week.
    Everyone wants to earn more, obviously, but if you asked any firm that I know for more than £200, they would laugh
