How Much Does a Plumber Charge to Replace a Toilet in Melbourne?

Swapping a toilet is a usual job for home improvement. It seems simple, but there are things to think about. Plumbers in Melbourne typically charge $150 to $400 to replace a toilet. Whether you're sprucing up your bathroom for looks, to save water, or because you have to, knowing the costs can help you plan and choose wisely. 

This article talks about what affects the price of changing a toilet and gives you an idea of how much you might spend on a plumber in Melbourne for the job.

Factors Influencing the Cost

1. The Type of Toilet

The kind of toilet you pick can change how much it costs. Prices go up or down based on things like the style (like one-piece or two-piece), how it flushes, how much water it uses, and the brand. A basic one is cheap, but fancier ones with extra features, like bidet options or hands-free flushing, can make it pricier.

2. Installation Complexity

How hard it is to install the new toilet can affect the price. If it needs big changes to the pipes or if it's a different size, it could take more time and skill, which means it'll cost more.

3. Labour Rates

Plumbers in Melbourne charge different prices based on how long they've been working. If you need them urgently or outside normal working hours, call Our Local Plumber. We offer cheap and fixed rates on all our plumbing services. 

4. Additional Repairs

Sometimes, when you're changing the toilet, you find other plumbing stuff that needs fixing, like leaks or parts that are old and need updating. Fixing these things will add to the overall cost.

5. Disposal of the Old Toilet

Taking away the old toilet and getting rid of it might not be part of what the plumber quotes you. Make sure to ask if it's included in the price they give you.

Average Toilet Services Costs in Melbourne

While prices can vary widely based on the factors mentioned above, here’s a rough estimate to give you a starting point for budgeting:

  • Basic Toilet Replacement: For a simple swap with a basic model, you might expect to pay between $150 to $300 for the toilet itself, with labour costs ranging from $200 to $400. This brings the total estimated cost to approximately $350 to $700.
  • Mid-Range to High-End Toilets: For toilets with more features or premium brands, the cost of the unit alone can range from $300 to over $1000. When you factor in labour, the total cost can easily reach $500 to $1500 or more.
  • Additional Plumbing Work: If extra work is needed, such as pipe rerouting or repairs, this could add several hundred dollars to the bill, depending on the complexity and time required.


While the cost to replace a toilet in Melbourne can vary, understanding the factors involved and doing some research can help you budget effectively. Remember, the cheapest quote isn’t always the best choice. 

Consider the plumber’s experience, reputation, and the quality of the fixtures being installed. By following the tips outlined above, you can ensure a smooth, cost-effective toilet replacement that meets your needs and expectations.

Had a shower tap that would not turn off at 8.30pm. The plumber arrived quickly, rectified the issue and I couldn't be happier with the service. I also needed some Documents for my landlord/real estate agent and they were amazing with their after care. Can't recommend highly enough. Great company!
