Fortunatley my partner seems to be able to turn his hand to most things, so not a huge experience of dealing with trade as a customer but I've been around them. Some are notoriously unreliable and even though you are paying them, they flounce around as if they are doing you the favour. God forbided you p them off, they just don't come back and then some of them won't complete a job if it's been started by someone else. Don't pay them an hourly rate.
The job is now a grand more expensive! That's a huge amount of money! I don't know the size of the drive but that seems really pricey. Anyway hope you get it sorted soon with minimal headache
