Happy new year to you all.
Who is the preferred supplier of Boiler and Gas central heating breakdown insurance.
British Gas have a quick response once cover starts - but at outset they will check that current boiler is free of issues.
You can see their scale of "one off" charges online- ie emergency call out without existing insurance.
Never ever use 24/7 Home Emergency! Scammers and unethical.
I have been using Domestic & General for years without any problems.
PropertyTribes does not have a partner for this, but we use Rightio.

Rather embarrassingly we hadn't flagged with Nick and Vanessa that we do offer this service!
As PT's insurance partners we're more than happy to help. As always just call your PT unique number...01603 649736
Can you tell us more? I've used BG for years now but it is often a struggle with them, especially when it comes to gas safety certificate time!
Do you do home appliance cover as well, and who is the company that you use to service the boilers etc.?
Unfortunately we don’t currently have a home appliance policy and our home emergency policy doesn’t currently provide boiler service or gas safety certificates, that is something we are looking into, however, our policy does cover complete failure of the primary heating system if the boiler is less than 15 years old and is annually serviced, complete failure of the electricity supply, bursting or sudden leakage or damage to the plumbing and drainage, pest infestation, security glazing and storm damage to roof causing ingress of water to the property and alternative emergency accommodation. The cost is £100 per residential let property per year. The cover cannot be purchased standalone, we must arrange the insurance for the property and or its contents.
Hi, thanks for your reply. I do have buildings insurance with yourselves, and am always looking for options other than BG!
It's a shame that you don't currently offer a complete service when it comes to the gas central heating system including maintenance and gas safety certificate as your £100pa is a very fair price. Any ideas whether the complete offering will be available any time soon?
At the moment we are exploring the possibilities - this might mean changing supplier and would certainly have an impact on the cost if the additional services were to be made available. We would obviously need to take into consideration the cost of other competitors products as we would want to ensure that we were still able to offer a fair priced product.
