Well the 28+ year old boiler is just about dead, I could fix it but the 2 parts that are totally goosed are nigh on £500 to buy, so bought a new boiler.
Easy bit done.
Then in order to get the extended 5 year warranty it has to be signed of by a "Competent" person.
Still OK with that, being a trained sparky up as far as 16th edition regs I can understand the needs to comply.
So first one contacted "It will be next spring" WHY THE **** WASTE MY TIME TRYING TO BOOK IT IN YOU'RE TAKING THE ****
So thinking about the job and knowing what it entails, having moved my current boiler 15 years ago, I reckon it would take me about 10 hours so next one arrives [plumber that is]
"It would be £450 to do", then his mate pipes up "oh and I'd just charge an hourly rate of £30 be about £200 for me" "Oh and parts on top"
NOW THAT IS DEFINITELY TAKING THE ****
Rant over, thank you
