How much does it cost to cut the cables?

That depends on the size but mains cable cuts are generally £170, this can potentially save purchasing £000's of extra £'s of cable.

How much notice do you need for cutting cables?

We like to get 3-5 days notice, but recently had a customer in a central London park that had a new cable stolen and he rang us at 4.30 pm and we managed to cut the cable and get it to him next day, so allowing the cable to be jointed and ground to be reinstated inide his time limits
