Comparison of British Gas to BOXT

Let’s face it, boiler companies have been given a bad name over the years. From engineering horror stories to hidden charges from hell - we’ve heard it all. That’s why when it comes to purchasing a new boiler, it’s difficult to know who to trust. A well known installation company, British Gas, are a household name. However, when it comes to prices, quality, and honesty - we think they’ve got plenty of catching up to do.

If you choose the right company, purchasing and installing a boiler doesn’t have to be such a nightmare. In this helpful guide, we’re going to explain what makes BOXT and British Gas two very different boiler installation companies, and the benefits you receive by picking BOXT.


Meet your installer prior your installation day.

Just like clockwork, your installer arrives on time with BOXT. We understand that you might have a few nerves. Although, having already met them on our website beforehand, you’ll have nothing to stress about.

The way it works is before you checkout, you’ll actually see a short bio of your installer. Here, they reveal what their strengths are, what you can expect on the day, and even what their favourite biscuit is. This way, you know exactly who’s going to be turning up at your door. So you can take it easy and leave it to the specialist - they’ll be done in no time. 

Now, let’s say you decided to go with British Gas. Navigating through their website is no walk in the park. Purchasing a boiler can be a long and confusing process, where at the end you receive nothing but an appointment with a commission driven salesperson. As if you weren’t stressed enough already...


Reinventing home improvements. 

Here at BOXT we appreciate that sometimes you need that human interaction to sort a boiler related conundrum. Which is why we have our very own ‘Live Chat’. Need some boiler advice? No problem. Purchasing a boiler is a big investment - so it’s calming to know there’s someone on hand to talk to. Whether you want questions answered or just a bit of guidance - our team of expert engineers are happy to help, every step of the way. You can also give us a call for free on: 0800 193 7777.



Fix your eyes on the price - once at checkout, it won’t change. 

We’ve all been there. You see a price on a website that sounds appealing, make a few clicks, proceed to the checkout, and the figure has since doubled. It’s frustrating to say the least. This seems to happen a lot with many boiler installation companies at some point in the process.

You won’t get that with BOXT, as we like to keep it simple and honest. The price you see is the price you pay for changing your boiler. As you go through our ‘Find A Boiler’ journey - there’ll be no hidden charges, no additional costs - just a fixed price that’s fair for you. 



Our price match promise. 

We want only the best for our customers, which means when we make a promise - we don’t break it. We’re so confident about our boiler installation prices that if you find the same fixed price elsewhere (which includes the same items), we’ll either beat the like-for-like price by £50, or gift you a free £50 Amazon voucher if we can’t. No strings attached. We’re the boiler company you can always have confidence in.

Out with the old, in with the BOXT. 

British Gas have been around for a while now, but we like to let our  reviews do most of the talking. With over 4,000 five star reviews, our customers receive nothing less than quality and excellence. That’s because we have a dedicated team that makes sure everything runs smoothly, to give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Faster installation, better quality. 

If you’re considering using another boiler installation company such as British Gas, your installation day could potentially be up to, or over a week away. Before an engineer even goes to your home, they send a salesperson to pressure you into picking a date and to accept a price you may not be comfortable with. We all have busy lives - who knows what’ll happen in that time? And if you need a service - could you live without no hot water for that long?

We don’t mess around at BOXT. If you order before 3pm, we’ll send one of our talented engineers to your home within 24 hours. You can also choose on our calendar a date that works best for you. Efficient, professional, and at your service - our installers are prepared for anything. From purchasing your boiler to installation day, it all happens seamlessly, so you can enjoy all the comforts of being at home. 


You’re well protected with BOXT.

You’ll have the safety net of a 10 year warranty with any Worcester Bosch boiler. Twice as long as what British Gas have to offer, we give you the best deals and prices that can’t be beaten anywhere else. Security when you need it the most.  

So, why choose BOXT over British Gas?

Since starting in 2017, we’re already making shock waves in the boiler industry. If you want fast installation, fixed prices, and expert engineers all at your fingertips - you’ve come to the right place. We’re unlike any other boiler installation companies, like British Gas. Just because they’re a well known company, doesn’t necessarily mean you get the best results. Forget everything you knew about home installations; the BOXT way is the game changer you’ve been waiting for…
