That's why it is really important that the scheme is not run by one large installation firm.
I have been saying from the start, that the householder should get the grant. This will enable them to get competitive quotes from Gas Safe registered installers, small and large, rather than a monopolistic scheme where prices could be inflated in the first place giving no saving to the householder.
What? "understand you want to help out merchants".....How to work that? Dodgy installer goes around signing off installations that don't exist and splits money with the customer etc.
These schemes are always milked by the scammers. And the government don't care as they'll just set aside a certain amount of money for it and say they've done their bit.
Sorry, Mick, I understand you want to help out merchants but I shed no tears for installers who are making a very, very healthy living already. Thanks to Corgi's closed shop arrangement.
I'm still trying to find out the details.Have any of the major boiler manufacturers said what they are putting towards it?
I saw a piece about this on the news last night and they inteviewed a boiler guy.
All he went on about was how it would help their industry. Never said anything about the environment.
There's a surprise.
Graham have been supportive from the start of the campaign, as have most other merchants, as well as major boiler manufacturers and installer organisations.Just to revive this thread and update you on Graham The Plumbers' Merchant position on the boiler scrappage scheme. Whilst I was at first sceptical we have now got on board and rolled out a dedicated website for home owners and installers. Please take a look to see if you are eligible.
I don't suppose you are over 60, are you?Well my old bolier packed in yesterday. Not bad though since it was installed in 1984. May be able to replace the broken valve though for around £150 so if I can I will do as no scrap scheme for us cold people up in Scotland
I don't suppose you are over 60, are you?
If you are, you can probably get some help via the "Warmfront" scheme!
We are still campaigning for the scheme to be taken up in Scotland, Wales & NI - they have had the funds allocated, but it still has to be approved by the individual Assemblies...
