Customer service is terrible. Didn't listen to anything, Cancelled engineer on day of service even though I had to keep rechecking to make sure he would call. I went ballistic as took day off work for them as a Landlord I had to go to the properties after my meltdown they then rang within 1/2 hour to then get the engineer to call. They rang to say no one at property so engineer left. No engineer was there. They took my number down wrongly even though I went through it several times. I asked for engineer's number, but they wouldn't give it. I can go on telling you of what I've been through with them. They just mess you about. No one knows what each other is doing. They charge you call out fees of £75 even though you've paid the excess in the policy! Absolute disgrace.
This company is a con. I had a boiler contract with them for 6 months, my boiler was in perfect working order, they came for a annual service, and said a small plastic cap was missing (I had been using the boiler for over 10 years and never had any problems). They ended up to capped the gas pipe and promised to return in two days with the part. That was in November. Then a nightmare started. They repeated telling me they didn't have the part, after a week, I ordered the part myself online and it arrived the next day. They refused to come out and cancelled my contract. I had to take another contract from British Gas and ended cost almost £600 for the year. This company is now using the name warranty people to run the business, probably because the poor reviews.
I have had a policy with 24/7 for a few years now and have never made a claim. The price has gone up again and as I now have boiler cover with my energy supplier I decided to cancel my policy. I cancelled today but my cancellation email said my final payment wud be on 22 April 2020 as I had to give 30 days notice to cancel. I wasn’t aware of that. I phoned again to ensure I would still be covered for the extra 30 days I was being charged for and was told I would be. I then asked if it would be possible to arrange an engineer to come out for my free boiler service which is included in the policy and was told no as I had cancelled my policy. I said you just told me I was covered for the next 30 days I was being charged for and at the higher rate I was told if my boiler packed in I would be covered for that but I cudnt get my free boiler service that was covered in my plan and that I had paid for. Shocking customer service! Good riddance. I am extremely disappointed
This company is appalling do not touch it, when you have an emergency they won't deal with it, saying not covered I don't know why I paid for peace of mind as I didn't get any, they are not for purpose.
Believe me this 247 home and rescue is fraud and each time you make a claim you have been told that you're not covered and you're only covered in emergency situation.
I have reported a block drainage and I have been informed I'm only covered in emergency situation, I'm not sure what does that mean, but she's willing to send someone if I pay them extra money, so company is greed as hell.
I have logged another claim, that my power socket is not working which was told at the time of contract that everything will be covered and looked after, she again told me that I'm only covered in emergency situation, I asked her do you mean if my house is on fire and then I should call you, this company is full of bullshit, absolutely fraud.
I was so disgusted that I have cancelled my direct debit, as I'm sick and tired of paying for nothing, guys please stay away from this company, this company is FRAUD, they will keep a very sharp eye on your pocket as their policy is greedy as hell.
**STAY AWAY for this Mugger Company, it's CHEAT and FRAUD.**
I WISH I can give them 0.0000000000000001 of one star *
Appalling landlord service & threats. We had 2 contracts with 24/7. One at home & then we added 1 of our rental properties as our contract there came up for renewal, with a view to add it to our other rental when that contract expired.
The boiler service at our home was done because an engineer was in our area & not at a time we chose. Minor annoyance, because it kept me from work & not as advertised.
Our rental property became empty.The tenants had not allowed a boiler service so the certificate had lapsed by a few months. We had tenants waiting to move in. We phoned 24/7 & asked if it could be done as an emergency & explained the above. It is a legal requirement & is covered in our contract (they save money when it lapses) We asked on 20/1/20 that it be done asap as an emergency because we had waiting tenants & it was unsafe & illegal to let. We asked that if any cancellations came available, even at short notice, for them to contact us & we would facilitate (we were not told at this point that we could get our own engineer & be reimbursed).
We presumed they would treat it as an emergency as they are a 24/7 response service. They did not & they let us down. We lost a month's rent of £900 & paid unnecessary service charges also, as we waited a month, only to be told on the afternoon of Friday the 14/2/20 that the appointment on the Monday 17/2 was cancelled & we would get a call to rearrange within 7 days.
I asked to make a complaint & was, eventually told by another person that I had to wait another 3 weeks with no guarantee that it would not be cancelled again.
I had booked a day off work for 17/1/02 as they would not specify a time & I lost that day's Annual Leave, spending it,instead, arranging an engineer that would do it for £60 as that is all they said they'd reimburse & most engineers wanted more at short notice, much more. They (24/7) themselves charge £75 for a one off certificate but would only give me £60
We pay extra as landlords & expect this to be reflected in service. A certificate is required by law & we expressed that & the emergency nature each time we corresponded & called.
They failed to log incidences of phone calls, queried if I'd even spoken to their complaints department (basically calling me a liar) & later, after many messages & phone calls, even threatened to withhold the £60 refund they'd promised (for the certificate I paid extra for) if we left their organisation, which we had every right to do.
I've now lost the tenants completely as they found somewhere else & I have to pay to advertise again. They refuse to reimburse me any of the money I paid them in premiums (I didn't ask for compensation for my losses) they did nothing for so I'm reporting to Trading Standards & taking them to Court. Landlords pay extra so that they're covered & do not leave their properties empty. They also have repeatedly claimed to have refunded me for my paid up front Contract remaining months but they have not. Don't expect service from them. Avoid.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
I have a slow leak coming from my expansion tank causing the boiler pressure to drop and therefore breakdown, i can then repressurise the boiler however this is a work around. The boiler still breaks down due to the leak. I called them and reported this as part of my breakdown cover that I pay them for and they tried to fob me off telling me the system didn't class it as a breakdown! I asked them what they classed as a breakdown, do they expect me to wait until the leak gets worse and water is pissing all over the floor? I demanded to speak to a manager at which point I was called back 30 minutes later and told an engineer would visit my property free of charge (how generous, even though that's what i'm paying for) Engineer came out 2 days later to look at the issue, I showed him what was wrong and he gave the boiler a check over and said that they would need to order some parts. I said okay that is fine and he went on his way. I then get a call the next day from 247Rescue telling me that the parts required for the boiler outweigh the boilers value so they will not repair it. They value my boiler at £154 (how they get this value I do not know). With this valuation, this means that the cover they have sold me is completely redundant. They say they will only carry out work up to 60% value of the boiler which means there is almost no scenario where they are going to carry out work on my boiler. My father is a Boiler engineer so I asked him and he said it is standard practice to fix a remote expansion tank outside the boiler rather than replace the one inside the boiler. It is easy to do and far cheaper than removing the boiler from the wall to replace the internal expansion tank. I suggested this fix to them but they refused to do it. Instead they were far more keen on offering me a new boiler with one of their expensive insurance policies (why on earth would i want boiler insurance for a new boiler)
I have now opened a case with trading standards as they are selling people policies that are worthless in an attempt to force people into purchasing finance contracts for new boilers along with expensive service contracts.
Worthless cover and no end of frustration. We have a small external leak. They changed a part inside the boiler but caused a leak and a broken park to the boiler itself. Then said they could not fix it, it was a write off now... and wanted to replace the whole boiler as it was now a write off and that over cover did not cover the replacement boiler. BUT YOU JUST BROKEN MY BOILER!!!
Long story short. CalledWorcester Boshe, who fix it right away. Now was are going through a long process to reclaim through the courts. Life is too short. Avoid this company at all costs!!!
Logged fault water going hot/cold pressure up and down.
Engineer changed heat exchanger fixed hot/cold but not pressure problem. When complained they claimed problem was sludge and would not respond until i payed for a power flush and a new boiler! ours is 5 years old. Got in Worcester Bosch, fixed problem new pressure relief valve, Passed Turbidity test- no sludge nothing wrong with boiler. apparently a common scam. BEWARE.
Terrible company! Fine until you make a claim and they do all they can to not pay out. The engineer I got when my central heating wasn't coming on thought my radiators were heated through water flowing by gravity not a pump, all 13 of them! Company sided with him saying we don't have a pump because he couldn't find one. When I got a second opinion and needed 2 parts they still refused to pay or fix till I got a power flush. Maybe I need to paint my boiler first too...
