I have been told this will cost me £1500 for a fully qualified plumber/fitter to buy a reconditioned boiler, install it, then sluice the pipes through, to make sure it all works properly. The price is the best one I've been quoted so far, the only problem I have is that we don't want/can't get a loan at the moment, so we need to find somewhere that offers a credit facility/payment plan. I have only seen that Southern Electric have that service, but they've never replied when I contacted them. Do you know of anywhere that provides this service, I live in the Midlands, England. Thank you for your help. (If you don't know how to help, please don't reply, thank you).

http://www.energychoices.co.uk/what-if-i-cant-afford-a-new-boiler.html#1 I don't know if you have tried this one. You can't get the grants or anything that they're offering but there is a boiler quote thingy near the bottom of the page. You can specify that you request someone who will provide what you want with a finance option. I think your info gets passed to different places like the insurance websites and things and you get info from different places but I don't know for sure becuase you have to put all your details in to get a quote. You could always try Southern Electric again. From what I've seen, it looks like energy suppliers are the best option for that sort of thing if you can get that.

D'oh. 'Tis the Pumpkin one here. I didn't know Mum was logged in. I thought I was. Oh well. She'll just wonder what's going on.

Thank you, I've filled in the form, I hope it works, I did fill in something similar on another site, but got nowhere. I'll let you know if I do get anywhere with this. I'm not bothering with Southern Electric, they don't answer e-mails (they DID get both of the ones I sent them, I've had a generic reply saying they got the e-mail and they'll reply within 5 days), they don't answer their phones either, so I'd not advise anyone to use them, if they want any work doing.
