Having recently retired, I have been taking a keener interest in my outgoings. As I went through all the paperwork, I was staggered to see that Scottish Gas (British Gas) has demanded £629 to renew my HomeCare 4 agreement which covers my boiler, central heating and plumbing.
I had been paying it by direct debit which, more than likely, made me a bit lax in checking the renewal quotes and as result it must have slowly crept up.
I asked British Gas why I was paying so much but it couldn’t give me a satisfactory explanation. It did say that prices do include expected parts and labour, which could be required throughout the annual agreement.
I cancelled the agreement but, out of curiosity, I called as a new customer and was quoted £384 for the exact same cover. Is there anything I can do to highlight this and to make people aware they need to check renewals closely? I have managed to get much cheaper cover elsewhere. EH, Aberdeen. (Guardian 2018)
A new boiler with 10 years parts and labour is available for as little as £30.00 a month. With no deposit 10 years peace of mind and. Nothing to pay until October next year
