Why buying a boiler online is the best way

So, the inevitable has happened. Your boiler has finally bitten the dust and it’s now time for a new one. But where do you start? With so many boiler companies all claiming to have the lowest prices, it’s stressful trying to find the deal and price that's right for you.

In this handy guide, we’ll explain the various methods and processes you may go through when purchasing a new boiler. Not only that, we’ll also tell you about our own unique and convenient way. Don't worry, we’ll help you through this puzzle. 

The traditional ways. 

1). A pushy salesperson visit. 

Now, you’ve got yourself a visit with a boiler company's salesperson. They may not look like one, and may even call themselves ‘engineers’. But at the end of the day, they just want their commission. 

The problem with this method is that it's far too drawn-out. There’s no telling how long you’re going to live without hot water and heating for. It could be up to or over a week before the salesperson actually comes round. Many boiler companies don’t even allow you to pick a specific time, you have to decide whether you want it in the ‘am’ or ‘pm’. How are you supposed to plan your life around that? 

This is an unnecessary farce that many homeowners find themselves in. Salespeople use numerous tactics to try and squeeze every penny out of you, sometimes taking full advantage of the situation. Their prices aren’t fixed, so there’s hidden charges that you may not be aware of. It’s no picnic. 

2). Quote surfing.

We’ve all been there. Searching ‘boilers’ into Google and randomly clicking on every web page you can find. All offering quote after quote, price after price. You receive a wave of useless numbers which just leaves you confused, with a migraine, and still without hot water or heating. When your boiler goes bang, this is the last thing you need.

3). Emails, emails, emails.

Boilers don’t come cheap. Understandably, when your boiler’s in disarray and are looking for a new one - you’re going to have a few questions. With many boiler installation companies, you have to provide them with your email, phone number, and various other pieces of personal information - and that’s before you’ve even asked them anything. Not to mention waiting for a response - which could take hours. Who has that much time? 

Let’s say you decide the price is too expensive, you’re later bombarded with emails from all the various boiler companies you’ve asked a simple question to. Leave us alone spam emails.

We do things very differently...

This is the BOXT way.
