Just wanted everyone in the Stafford area know that we had several quotes from Howdens in Stafford in budget, suddenly Dan from Howdens rang up to ask for£3000: more because of his poor planning and a builder had under estimated on the quote for the flooring. I raised this with the manager from Howdens who let slip in the phone call that they do this on all quotes on their kitchens if the builder has under estimated on the build elsewhere. Not believing what I had just heard I asked if that was right? He admitted they do it with all quotes to help the builder out. Told Howdens head office who were useless!!!! They tried to say they can charge what they like as we are not the customer, their customer is the builder! Please be aware of Howdens because if they hadn't been up to anything why has the manager just left???? He just walked out of his job...very strange. There's obviously more to this than meets the eye. Oh and the builders name , GEO MARK JACKSON.
