Hi guys, been quoted 1550 for direct replacement of baxi combi 105he with a baxi 830, I know the engineers.. So paying roughly 500 for Labour. What do you think? Plus this is with thermostat fitting etc. I thought about 1300/1400.

Tbh I would say that’s cheap but if you know the engy he might be helping you out

roughly the kit comes too around £11-1200 so around 300 labour

does that include a flush ?

Sounds cheap too me by the time you allow for pipe, fittings and all the consumables needed for a boiler swap
Does the gas need upgrading?
Will the system be flushed?
Lime fighter & shock arrestor needed?
Boiler plus controls?

Its all great trying to get the cheapest price but if its not fitted properly the warranty will be worthless

Thanks Shaun, not sure if it does include a flush. I do the know engineers from work. He did say that they would usually charge 900 to fit.

Thanks Scott, includes pipework, not sure about the other points you have mentioned. These are corghi registered engineers who carry out these works often.

Gas Safe registered etc
 
That’s a good price, take it!!
Thanks stu, put my mind at rest, it was either getting it repaired PCB blown, leak from diverter valve etc or replaced, apart of me thought repair because cheaper but it's 15 years old. Thanks for your advice

There is no way anybody can do this for 1300/1400. The 1550 that you have been quoted is a bargain providing everything is done correctly so I would advise you to take that I doubt you will find anyone else to do it for that price
 
Too cheap, cutting corners somewhere.

Tail light warranty.
So how long should it take to replace a boiler? Like I said

Thanks J, I do know them so they are doing it cheaper for me, he did actually say it would usually be about 1900/ 2000. Thought I'd check just in case with you guys that know. Thanks again.

Snap his hand off at that price mate. Especially if he is a good engineer and you trust him. I couldn’t do it for that price if I tried.

Thanks Harvest, I do know them well and worked with them for a long time. I just wasn't sure how much labour costs for fitting them.

Its a 2 day job for me.
Or one day for 2 people providing the gas and condensate doesn’t need major work.
