Urgent Boiler Replacement
We often get calls from clients who desperately need an urgent boiler replacement. The time of the year doesn’t matter. It can be in the middle of winter or summer, the boiler can decide to break at any time.
If your existing boiler is more than 15 years old, the chances of it breaking down are quite high. A broken boiler can cause major upheaval to your household and day to day life, especially if you’re in the middle of winter and you’ve got children in the family. Given the kind of winter we had in the early part of 2018 in the UK, even your trusted old boiler that once saved you money, when it breaks down, becomes a burden.
Urgent Boiler Replacement – The Old Fashioned Way
The interesting thing is that although most things can be organised and bought online, from buying clothes, motorcycles, cars, (even helicopters!), games, and toys to arranging things such as hotel reservations and holidays; a sizeable percentage of the population still do some things the old fashioned way. Even with the internet at our fingertips, whether it’s through their smartphone, tablet or computer, some of us still use the traditional method of getting an urgent boiler replacement. While this method may seem safe and secure and “traditional” on the surface, because you’re meeting with the surveyor in person, but in 2018 those worries should be a thing of the past. Let us explain why.
Physical Survey and Quotes – Wasted Time and Money
So, following on from the scenario at the outset, you are in need of an urgent boiler replacement and decide to do things like most people, you call up at least 3 to 4 plumbing and heating firms based in your local area. Or you could use an online business (usually a lead generation company) that arranges for around 3 to 5 firms to visit you at your home for a survey and give you a quote. Boiler surveys cannot be scheduled on the same day. They usually take anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks. Furthermore, most plumbing and heating companies have a tendency to only give quotes to their customers during office hours on weekdays. Many do not even offer evening or weekend visits as an option. This is obviously a problem if you work during office hours and only have evenings and weekends free. Once you take time off work for the survey, it then takes another few weeks to schedule the installation. And to put a cherry on top of it all, you’d probably have to go through this process a couple of times to get several quotes from different companies to compare prices.
Missed Survey Appointments + Rescheduling = More Time Wasted
All of the above is applicable only if everything goes according to plan during the initial steps of the process. It is not uncommon for surveyors to miss appointments, which then means you have to reschedule their visits, and in turn could mean even more time off work. Further denting your finances, messing up your time management, and causing problems for you.
So, even though you need urgent boiler replacement, you could be still dealing with a lack of boiler many weeks or months down the line.
As we mentioned above, most plumbing and heating firms can take at least three to four weeks to actually get a quote out to you. It also seems that it is the larger energy companies, such as British Gas and E.ON to name a few, who take the longest time to provide quotes for urgent boiler replacement to their customers.
Now, while those plumbing and heating firms take their own sweet time, your house isn’t getting any warmer. This is why using these methods in 2018 are not always effective. Especially when you have the power of the internet at your fingertips.

Helpful Surveyors Guide you
Our surveyors not only possess a wealth of experience, they are genuinely helpful chaps, and not pushy salespeople. Once you have provided us with the details we require, you will receive a phone call from one of our surveyors to ascertain whether the job is straightforward enough to finalize your quote with just some photos. Or whether it’s a complex job that requires a physical survey. Then based on what you want or need, we set up an install date. And unlike a lot of our competition, we may even be able to arrange for your urgent boiler replacement to be carried out the very next working day! Weekend appointments are also possible.
