Gas and Heating Engineer's London

Sometimes the odd job comes along where it is impossible to give a ‘fixed price’ quotation, due to a number of ‘unknowns’. Compiling a ‘fixed’ price quotation without investigation brings an element of risk that may increase the costs, which is the last thing you want!

With a fixed price there are many known facts to consider related to the works, making quoting relatively straightforward e.g. a ‘fixed price’ quotation can be prepared from photos when a kitchen or bathroom tap needs replacing. The customer provides the photos, make/model of the tap, emails the information to Serviceteam Ltd and we do the rest.

However, there are times when the works are not straightforward or immediately obvious, due to a number of unknowns. Trying to second guess or predict where a problem lies is a huge risk. There are times, even with a proper investigation, when the scope of works cannot be totally determined. For example, tracing a leak in a property where piping is concealed in the fabric of the building, within stud walls or beneath concrete flooring. This is when a ‘fixed price’ quotation is not possible.

The same applies if there is an intermittent fault with your central heating system or gas boiler as the fault cannot be diagnosed without a thorough on-site investigation.

      To manage ‘uncertainty’ customers prefer another option, which is to pay by the hour or for the time taken.
      It’s a straightforward and easy approach, as the customer is always in control of the cost. Which makes sense with a ‘concealed’ leak. Paying by time/hour to trace the leak, is our customers preferred option. Once it has been detected a ‘fixed price’ quotation can then be provided. Alternatively, we could continue on the hourly rate until the repair has been identified and fixed, it’s the customers choice?

      Charging by the hour only begins when our tradesperson arrives on site and opened their toolbox.

When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorization before proceeding.

    Do I need to provide parking?
    As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
