Drain unblock price comparison:

Let us do the hard work for you. We've scouted the internet to find the prices of a standard drain unblock. Not many companies on the net will commit a price without looking at the job first. Those that do are way beyond any price we'd expect to charge. Take a look at how we stack up against the national companies.

The numbers speak for themselves, the costs involved in sourcing trades people who are substitutes for national companies is staggering, with national companies taking huge amounts of commission but knowing many will opt for the easy option and go with a name they recognise. We beg you not to, it can save you a small fortune and it allows smaller, local businesses to keep trading. 

As we expand our business, we hope to be a regular choice when it comes to drain unblocking and groundworks for yourself, your family and your friends living in the North East of England.

It can be very frustrating knowing that you have a blockage in one of your drains but not knowing where it is.

We come highly recommended - See for yourself

I found NE Drains from a quick search and submitted my job. I wasn't too hopeful for a quick response but was worth a try. Within minutes NE Drains contacted me to arrange a time to come and unblock my drain. Within the hour they had pulled up and unloaded their equipment to sort the job out. I was so impressed with how quick everything was. The service of NE Drains was amazing and so much cheaper than I expected, given the fast callout time. Will be recommending to friends and family.

Rebecca in Peterlee

We recently moved into a new property and wanted to move a bathroom. We needed to therefore rearrange all of the outdoor drainage. We put a job post on NE Drains as we knew they had links with plumbing as well. NE Drains were able to quickly arrange for us to speak with a plumbing expert who answered our questions and guided our decision to get the bathroom we wanted but making sensible decisions about the location of the sink, toilet, bath and shower so that the plumbing costs were kept to a minimum and remained aesthetically pleasing outside our home. With that advice we asked NE Drains to do the work for us and we are so impressed with the finished product.

Jo in Otterburn

Needed some support with toilets and drains after being sat for so long unused during COVID-19. Posted job on NE Drains. NE Drains got in touch almost immediately and after a discussion decided it would be useful to come out and inspect the drains. They conducted a CCTV scan and then removed the blockage. Good price, local business and hard working. Thanks.

Things we get asked

How much does a drain or toilet unblock cost?

NE Drains come with a wide range of technology. Most drain unblocks can be done within minutes using drain rods. Some may require a CCTV inspection to find the cause of the blockage and the best way to tackle it. On average, all of our drain unblocks come at a cost of just £39.00 unless there is additional, unforseen, work to carry out (but we will discuss this with you). Our prices are at least 50% cheaper than the likes of Dyno-Rod or Local Heroes. Take a look at their prices, then come back and let us get you a much better price locally.

How long will you be?

Firstly, identify whether it's an emergency or not. If you need us rapidly then why not try our Quick Call feature? This will directly connect you with our highly experienced drainage team. They can then determine the quickest time they can get to you. If you're not in such a rush and would like us to look over your job description and contact you with our recommendations then submit a job description and we will fully consider your request and get back to you as soon as possible. Rest assured, we will connect you with a professional drainage team the very same day you submit your request as long as it is within business hours; our team needs to sleep sometimes.

It's 2am and my toilet cistern is overflowing - Can you help?

We don't want you to be stuck with a squelchy bathroom floor through the night. However, our team of quote busters do need time to sleep and are probably having sweet dreams about sewage by this point. That's why we created the Quick Call feature and agreed with all of our dedicated drainage team that they will respond to all emergency call-outs free of charge. You read it correctly, no emergency callout charge.

What if you can't unblock my drain?

Pffft, unlikely. However, it is possible. Not to worry though because we have the Swiss Army Knife of Drainage Companies at our finger tips. Operating three drainage companies across the North East has its advantages, that is, we have a wide range of specialist equipment as and when we need it. If a team come to your home and cannot fix the issue, we may need to call on our colleagues to supply specialist equipment to help us out. We will discuss this with and will do our very best to get your job sorted as soon as possible.

My drain smells really bad - Does that mean it's blocked?

Not necessarily, however it does suggest that there is a build up of some not so nice stuff down there. NE Drains can help you elimate those smelly drains using the latest technology in high-pressure drain jetting. Our skilled and experienced team will be able to clean your drains and leave them smelling like, well, not smelly drains.

What do I pay? Who do I pay? When do I pay?

What do I pay?

For standard drain unblocks our fees start from £39.00 and most will be £39.00.

There may be occassions where additional work is required and a blocked drain is not the root cause of the problem. In this instance, our team will fully explain the steps required to rectify the problem and the costs involved in this. We will always show you the evidence we have that suggests extra work is carried out but understnad that you may want a second opinion. With that, we would welcome the opportunity to beat and like-for-like quotes from other local companies.

Who do I pay?

You will pay all fees to our drainage team at NE Drains on the completion of the job. Deposits may be required on large drainage and groundwork projects.

When do I pay?

You should only pay the final balance once the work has been completed and you are satisfied that the problem has been fixed. We will then be in touch to ask for your feedback on your experience.

What's all this about new Septic Tank Regulations?

As of 1st January 2020, septic tanks are no longer allowed to discharge to a watercourse, or to a soakaway system other than a drainage field. Make sure you are ready for the new regulations; read through our information on the new regulations and submit a job description if you would like us to source drainage companies who can supply you with a quote.
