Do you take the old boiler/radiators away or do I pay for that extra?
We always take your old boiler away for recycling at no extra cost and 'make good' of any mess at the end of a job. However, we do not 'box in' pipe work unless specified at the time of the quote.
If you repair my boiler and a month later it breaks down again would you charge me £75 again?
No, there is no charge. Any work carried out by Capital Boilers is guaranteed for 1 year, which includes any parts fitted that were supplied by us.
If I call out Capital Boilers to come to my home to repair my boiler, how are the charges broken down?
Capital Boilers always aim to repair your boiler as quickly as possible and normally quotes for new radiators and boilers will not have a call out charge.

If Capital Boilers fitted my new boiler, and after 3 months it breaks down, do I call the manufacturer or Capital Boilers?
We always recommend you call us first because it is quicker for you. We can get there the same day or the next. Once we have seen your new boiler, our engineer will know if it is a manufacturer repair or not and take the appropriate action.
