Removing living room spots, connecting a feed to centre of room for pendant light.

Hi - I'm wondering what a going rate would be for the disconnection and removal of 6 living room spot lights, and sending a feed to the centre of the room.

I have identified the spot that feeds the others. All I would need is the physical lights themselves to be disconnected and removed and a new cable connected and fed to a pre-made hole for the central pendant light.

I would be filling/plastering/painting the leftover holes myself.

There is no access from floor above.

The main circuit board is very close too.

Many thanks

"I predict that the job would take approximately 2 hours to complete but this maybe longer or shorter depending on the current installation and how much access they're is.

My call out charge is £80 which includes the first hour of labour, it is £40 for each half hour increment after that."

"I would charge £120 & I am based in East Sussex if everything is as described. Probably allowing an hour & half time wise."

"As a guide price spotlight installs from fresh with just a centre light and all the holes being drilled by the sparks would start at £60 per light. So expect half that price per light as a good rule of thumb, minus that of the middle one which would need to be wired"

"Hi I would say this would take a few hours so depending on where you live your looking at me completing this for £100"
