Talk to me...

Got about 53 square metres of driveway I want doing and have been quoted 3500 all in. This is for Woburn rumbled block paving so not the standard sharp edged red bricks.

Does this sound decent? It is from a chap who has done a fair amount of work on mum and dads house, just not sure if the quote is reasonable as never paid for driveway before.

How much have others paid?

Doesn't really help much but when I was 15 I sold block paved driveways.

The night (after school) I started it was dark outside. My mates explained in the van on the way there what to do/say etc and the guy running it was giving me all the sale speak. So they pulled up at the end of a big driveway and I walked all the way up to the door an rang the bell.

John Barnes answered so I mumbled through the sales speech and he was smiling the whole time. When I finished he flicked a switch and the whole driveway lit up showing a bran new block paved driveway he and the lads in the van all pissed themselves laughing and John said they do it to all the new lads

3500 sounds about right! Just make sure they do it properley.
