    My dad has somebody coming out today at 1pm to see him about a new boiler installation. Because he only lives on his pension, he is looking to pay monthly. However, they say you don't pay anything for 12 months and then you're charged at the end of the 12 months.

    I can't find any reviews for the company or their boilers whatsoever. Their website looks pretty basic. They provide Zanussi boilers which I know very little about.

    Here is the website:

    Basic website with a London phone number - which could mean it's a rented number which takes calls and routes them somewhere, could be anywhere, else in the country.

    If possible and it's not too late, can you be there when the salesman calls, because that's what it will be - someone who will try and sell a boiler at probably high price.

    A possible solution would be for him to get a quote from a local engineer - could well be for 1500 or a lot less for the boiler and fitting, but that's just a guess based on what my neighbour paid - and you pay for it for him and he pays you a monthly agreed amount to cover it?

    Edit - too late for my post as it's now well past the 1pm visit time.

    Another edit - be very wary of buy now pay later deals - most of them have interest rates of over 40% and some have been charging a lot more.
