Wats the going rate to get a sparky to fit a double socket these days?
is it to replace an existing socket whether it be single or double or is it to take a spur of another socket and chase through plaster or under floorboards and make good render either way
 
You can get a new double socket from Screwfix for £2..maybe £5 for a chrome look one..how long to fit it..10 minutes??..new placement is totally different though.
There's a lot more work involved in a new placement. If it was just replacing as previously said I'd be happy to walk the OP through this to save them a pretty penny, as long as they are comfortable to do so.

I won't be carrying out any new placement work as electrical work isn't my main job.

Replaced a double socket to upgrade to a one with USB outlets, was pretty pleased with myself and the kids havent been fried yet. Missus (no) complained though because it was chrome and didnt match the others
