Thumbs up How much should I be charged to install appliances?

Well, my Ikea installer decided they didn't want to finish my job ( Birch Associates ) so I am stuck looking for someone to do the appliance install, plumbing and undercounter lighting.
Is it hard to install appliances? If so, any recommendations on who contact in the MD/DC area to finish the job and how much do you think it will cost.
Here is a list of my appliances;
Liebherr built in refrigerator
Miele Dishwasher
Miele Microwave garage door
Miele Oven
Miele Warming Drawer
Gagganau Cooktop
Thanks in advance for your responses

Re: How much should I be charged to install appliances?

i just had Mike from Designing Renovations in to pull up my entire kitchen floor (down to the joists) and lay new subfloor. he even showed me how to install my new floor (and ended up doing most of it), helped with a pipe that was giving me trouble and installed my gas stove (shhh, i don't think he had the proper license to do that, fyi ).

i paid $600 plus materials and he and his assistant (who's name i can't remember, i feel horrible about that!) came on a sunday and did it all in one day. considering i called him friday morning i was quite pleased with the timetable.

here's his website:

Design Renovations, Inc.

another suggestion is to check angies list. you have to pay to join but i have found many great great contractors through them.

i will say, i have probaby paid more now than the original quote i got to do everythign form demo to install, but i've learned so much doing it myself, including how to survive without a kitchen for 6 months

Thanks for the tip. I will look him up. Time is of the essence. I don't know how you waited six months. I'm going on 2 months and can barely take it.
best of luck!

Re: How much should I be charged to install appliances?

well, i haven't so much "waited" six months as i've been "in progress" for 6 months. i'm doing it myself. as in, just me. i work full-time and i'm a student. this means i get about 2 mintues a night and 1.5 hours per weekend to actually dedicate to the kitchen.

having the stove hooked back up has been wonderful and i'm hoping ot get the line run for the icemaker this weekend so i can move the fridge back into the kitchen. if everythign goes right i may even get the upper cabinets installed!
