Today is the day that you have three plumbers/boiler engineers come over and give you a quote on a shiny new boiler.
Two of the three visit your home and do a ‘site survey’ and will spend some time going on about how nice your home is, how awesome and friendly your dog is, and will probably go on about why a particular boiler is best for your home, so far, so good…
The one plumber that didn’t bother visiting your home will most likely go on about how busy he/she is and that they can give you a quote over the phone.
It turns out that the plumber that gave you the quote over the phone is the cheapest and probably one your most happy with… Why? becouse he/she said they could have your new shiny boiler installed in just a few hours and be out your way…
The cheapest quote is the worst installation quote.
Everybody loves a bargain. Getting a good value for your hard earned money is important.
However, Many things must be taken into consideration when looking at boiler quotes like, is this plumber going to be in business years down the line if something goes wrong or if you need their services for maintenance or other projects.
So, when you are comparing quotes for your boiler installation, dig deeper into the companies.
Will this plumber/boiler engineer installing your boiler be professional, capable, respectful, and knowledgeable, or are they simply cowboys?
Are they local?
Check online reviews such as Google and other reviews sites.
Is their work well documented and high quality?
Are your best interests – both short and long term – addressed in the quote?
How long have they been in business?
What is the warranty on the products being used? (including boiler warranty)
You will find that the cheapest quote often comes with more risk and you might end up paying twice as much to get it sorted and installed correctly.
Any and all home improvement projects are meant to be just that, an improvement. If a company comes in with a really low quote, ask yourself if this is truly going to be a home upgrade, or a headache for you down the road.
