Quotations and Charges
Prices quoted are all inclusive of travel, labour and materials unless otherwise stated. Only work detailed / contained in the quotation will be carried out, please make sure we have included all work requested in the quote. *Any unforseen works that are required in order to complete the works will be carried out at our standard hourly rate. Accepting the quote means you agree to our terms and conditions.
Quotations for large scale jobs may incur a fee. This will be deducted if the job is accepted and proceeds.
Payment by bank transfer or cheque will be due immediately on completion of the requested work OR 24 hours after receiving your invoice.
Work in excess of £500 is part payable in advance (within 4 working days), normally 50% on acceptance and 50% on completion.
Payment of a deposit, confirms you agree to our terms and conditions.
If full payment is not made within 5 days of the invoice being sent we will recover the costs through a debt recovery firm and any subsequent fees will therefore be the debtors responsibility.
Supply and Fitting
We offer two types of quotation, the first being a supply and fit package. This means all products, materials and fittings are supplied by us therefore anything that goes wrong with any of the above are covered by us. The price allows for this and you, the customer are fully covered. This price does not change as per the quoted amount*
Our second and less favorable option is a labour only service where the customer supplies everything required for the job. With this particular way of working we also cannot offer any guarantees with the work or products and this is to be sorted by the customer and any of our time spent waiting for orders, wasted time due to faulty parts arriving or call backs etc is also charged at our hourly rate. This is simply to cover ourselves if anything were to go wrong / be delayed. We have found over many years in this industry ,that this is the best way to work for both the customer and as a company.
We only want the best for our customers and want it to be a stress and worry free experience for both parties.
Following a chargeable diagnostic check, all repair work is guaranteed. Parts supplied and replaced are guaranteed for 12 months* Exchange of parts under guarantee may incur a labour cost, excludes tampering with, or alteration to the appliance by anyone other than us. Parts required that are not van stock will be sourced and fitted as quickly as possible. If your boiler is deemed beyond economic repair and requires replacing and we are instructed to carry out the replacement, the diagnostic inspection fee will be deducted from the replacement boiler fee.
