Boiler Replacement

We are having boiler problems and are getting tank system removed for a combi boiler.

Had quote of £3490.00 for below works.
Looking online the boiler we are getting is about £1230 and the shower is about £250 so is this a reasonable quote for below work?

Removal of existing boiler and flue
Removal of programmer and roomstat
Removal of cylinder, pump and valves
Removal of all redundant pipework
Disconnection of tank in the loft
Conversion of hot and cold supplies to mains water pressure
Installation of Vaillant Ecotec Plus 837 with standard flue
Connection to existing heating pipework above boiler
Connection to hot and cold supplies below boiler
Connection of condense pipework to existing pipework
Upgrading of gas pipework externally to 28mm copper from meter to boiler
Installation of 15mm limescale filter
Installation of 22mm magnetic heating filter
Addition of heating cleanser and flushing of system
Addition of central heating protector
Completion of Gas Safe, Benchmark and Vaillant paperwork

Fully tile around bath (customer to supply tiles)
Installation of Aqualisa ‘Aspire DL’ thermostatic shower
Removal of all waste from site


  • Tiling ought to be £35 per square M.

    See if you can find out how long the job will last, but the quote is not a thin one, although getting the old water tank from the loft and attendant work might be a problem, and clearing waste might add to the cost. get another quote to compare it with.
  • Think Andrews Sykes do boilers mate
  • Ask how many days and how many men will be doing the work. From this you will get an idea of the labour rates,
    Bare in mind additional materials to add to the above work.
    Gas pipe seams a bit on the large side and there is a lot of rip out and replace with old for new. Generally padded out normal quote.

    I would say you have a lot of labour there and thats where the money gos. I know BG will charge around 3k just for a boiler rip out and install.
  • thanks - waiting for British Gas to call but online looked to be 3k just for boiler + installation.
  • If space is not an issue, i would never have a combi in a house. Heat only boiler and pressurized water cylinder to feed hot water at mains pressure.
