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 six 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 provide the Local Heroes team with the quote.
We know a good survey means we 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
We’ve designed a tool to capture your parts and labour requirements. This tool helps us provide a fast competitive quote to the customer. Use this tool while carrying out the survey to tell us what parts you’d need to make the install a success. If the customer has a competing quote tell us, we’ll try to beat it.
The parts can be collected from a collection point before the install.
If you have any problems completing the survey contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
4. We provide a quote to the customer
Unlike standard Local Heroes jobs, you won’t provide a quote through Toolbox. We’ll manage the quote with the customer for you and let you know if it has been successful.
5. 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.
6. Give us the warranty details
Some of our boilers will have different levels of warranty from the ones you would normally be able to offer. To make sure there are no mistakes, you need to send a photo of the boiler and the data badge (so we have the serial number, make and model). Email us at email@example.com
Don’t forget we’re on hand to support you and the customer throughout the process, just email the Local Heroes team at firstname.lastname@example.org to top
