Online Boiler Quotes vs Traditional

Looking for a new boiler quote? Traditionally you would have had to a book an on-site visit directly with an engineer (if you wanted options this would mean multiple visits) to come and view your home and assess the costs of installation.

Nowadays, like most things in life, the process has moved online. We are now able to generate quotes through a couple of clicks, taking around 30 seconds. Often there is no need to actually speak to anyone, not even over the phone. This has significantly changed homeowners’ behaviour, being able to easily research and compare prices, receiving instant results rather than having to welcome their home to multiple engineers (or just going with the first option for convenience).

In this post, we’ve evaluated the benefits of both methods, so you can understand a little more about what works best for you and your home!

Advantages of Online Quotes

  • InstantAn online quote can be received within seconds! You simply fill out a couple of questions about your home, a few clicks and you have your options.
  • ConvenienceThis saves you lots of time. You don’t need to be home and available to show people around, answer questions or discuss what needs to be done, with each engineer option. It is much more convenient for everyone.
  • AnytimeIt can therefore be done at anytime, rather than working around office hours or when you are free. You can even submit one at 3am if that’s when you decide to research!
  • ComparisonsNaturally, this opens up the opportunity to do a little more research and compare some quotes so you can understand the best package deal for you.
  • Online reviewsYou can understand the quality of the engineer and installer online, by ensuring they have a good quantity of positive reviews.
  • SimpleAll in all, online quotes are quick, easy and simple.

Advantages of Traditional Quotes

  • Better assessment of the workAn on-site review will allow the engineer to have a proper look at the required work and make a more informed estimate of the price and timelines. They can actually review your home, your current heating system and provide clearer and more helpful advice.
  • Personal interactionThis will therefore allow you to meet the engineer, make a personal connection and base your decision on the quality of their service and expertise – not just the price. This is an important factor to consider; a boiler installation is expensive and you want it to last for a long time, rather than have heating / hot water emergencies or spend money on lots of repairs in the future. There should be a balance between price and quality of service and meeting in person can allow you to evaluate this better.
  • Understand what’s going to happen Again, meeting in person will mean you can ask questions and get a clear picture about what work is required, how long it will take and what to expect in the future.
  • No internet connection required – As long as you have a phone, an internet connection isn’t necessary. You can call the engineer and then do the appointment in person.

So which one to choose?

This really depends on personal preference. If you are worried about the quality or process and would prefer to meet the engineer in person first, for a more informed and better-understood decision, then go for the traditional approach. On the other hand, if you want a convenient, fast and simple option, then online is the way to go.
