£16,500 to move a gas pipe?

It’s an expensive business setting up a new clinic, but when we needed to move the gas supply just over a metre into the new building, we didn’t expect a quote for nearly £16,500!

It turns out the gas company took our annual projection for gas use, and calculated it as a daily use – with the result that they were planning to close the road for a week, and re-route the pipeline around town.

Glad we got that one sorted out.
