Does anyone have experience with buying a Howdens kitchen? I am finding it most frustrating. The business model appears designed to allow the kitchen fitter to charge whatever he feels like at the time. For example, they are trade only and don't advertise their prices anywhere which means you have to find a fitter with a trade account. Depending on how much business he does with Howdens, he can earn upto an 85% discount on their prices, this is down to the fact that they ridiculously inflate their prices (£2700 for a basic corner unit as an example) The fitter is the only guy that see's the quote which means he can get creative leaving you none the wiser, by the time he has actually given you the quote, he has added his fitting cost on top, he is making an absolute fortune. Anyone else get this feeling with the process?
