Local Heroes boiler installs - How it works

It’s worth familiarising yourself with the Local Heroes boiler installation process - it’s slightly differently to our standard Local Heroes work.

Here you can find out:

The five things you need to know:

1. You’ve got to do a survey

You’ll need to do a survey physically or remotely (video/photos) and create your quote in Toolbox.

We know a good survey means you can provide a good price, as well as ensuring the install goes smoothly.

2. We don’t take commission on these jobs

You’re free to quote your required labour for these jobs, but unlike standard Local Heroes jobs we won’t take any commission.

3. We provide the parts, just tell us what you need and your labour costs

When you create a quote in Toolbox you’ll be able to add in your labour, the parts and sundries you’ll provide, and the parts Local Heroes will provide. For Local Heroes Boiler Install jobs we’ll provide the 5 major parts you’ll need. These are the Boiler, Flue, Filter, Chemicals and Thermostat.

If you have any problems contact us boilerinstalls@localheroes.com

4. Treat the customer as one of your own

We recommend you call the customer promptly when you’ve accepted the job and have agreed the date and time of the survey with the customer. You’ll get the best response if you call them within an hour of getting the job.

Conduct the survey at the agreed time even if you don’t manage to make contact with the customer beforehand.

5. We’ll register the boiler warranty

When you complete the job you’ll need to provide the serial number for the boiler to us. We’ll register the boiler, so you will not be able to claim any additional rebates or incentives from the manufacturers.

Don’t forget we’re on hand to support you and the customer throughout the process, just email the Local Heroes team at boilerinstalls@localheroes.com.
