With the ever-growing technological world, it's becoming very easy to purchase a new boiler. It's interesting to consider whether this part of our lives has the capability to go completely digital and whether or not this change will have more benefits.
The ideal service provider is personal, local, reputable and reliable. But can they have all of these qualities and also be 'cheap'?
When making a decision about buying a boiler, it can seem tempting to answer a couple of online questions and send a few pictures to a 'specialist' on the other end of a computer screen to get a fast quote and have a fitting in just a couple of days, but is it worth it?
The answer is simply 'no'. The experience of using a subcontractor VS any local company is completely different, the relationship with the company they work for is stronger as they aren't casual. The standards with local engineers are much higher because they are working for a company.
It's also important to consider that the decision to purchase a new boiler is often a very costly one and with thousands of pounds on the line it's always better to get an expert opinion over making a quick decision.
I believe that these online marketing business models will lose their place in the market very quickly as the standards improve and considerate thoughtful design is considered greater.
