I contacted British Gas on line to report a fault with our central heating. I booked a time slot and no one turned up so I lost a days annual leave for nothing.
I have since booked to change to smart meter again on line. Booked 2 weeks in advance and rang them the day before to confirm.
Twenty minutes on the phone to be told no knowledge of my appointment. Too late to cancel another lost annual leave day. I have been with BG for over 30 years but now looking at alternatives.

Engineer visit booked in advance, engineer called arrived at residence and was informed by family member engineer arrived didnt carry out any checks etc bearing in mind I had explained that recently on visit problem with boiler. He seemed to feel without any checks that this was a service which was required by a plumber. And left. What a waste of time and permit which I applied for.

Visit one (Friday PM): annual service booked and and when enginneer arrived we mentioned that very recently we had trouble getting hot water from downstairs in the kitchen and in the shower without running the bathroom sink tap which seemed to 'ignite' the boiler. The first engineer confidently stated there was absolutely nothing wrong with our boiler and tried to tell us it was our kitchen tap that was causing the 'no hot water' problem and should be replaced. When we reminded him the shower, directly plumbed in, also had the same problem he back tracked a little. He then told me my Baxi combi stored hot water in a large container (right....NOT) and accussed me of calling him a liar when I told him what a previous engineer had told me about it! He then decided he would order a new diaphragm and heat senor, another visit arranged, the earliest of which I could make was mid-week. He left leaving us with no hot water.
Visit two (Wednesday PM): above parts replaced, hot water still not hot but at least tepid from most taps now.
Following Friday now no hot water again - call-out placed and another engineer visit scheduled for next morning.
Visit three (Saturday AM) : This time seemed lucky enough to get someone who actually appeared to know what they were doing. He found a leak caused by over-tightening previously and ordered other parts. Having to re-arrange more time to enable working from home, visit scheduled for later in the week.
Visit Four (Wednesday PM): One final visit later, damage repaired, parts replaced and we again have hot water.

Not impressed.

I had a gas fire with back boiler in the lounge. A 95p microswitch inside the gas valve went open circuit. "Can't be fixed, no longer manufactured; have to condemn the whole thing".
A salesman came. "Can't do a straight replacement. You'll have to have a separate boiler on an outside wall." Agreed boiler position and pipe runs.
Craftsman and half-wit assistant arrived. "Can't do it like that. Salesman is an idiot."
Agreed revised plan. Half-wit started the job by breaking off all the radiator valve caps with pliers then found I'd opted for the extended guarantee instead of the replacement thermostatic valves. They're still not replaced. Half-wit fitted pipe clips to the garage ceiling with dome headed screws, so the clips won't close properly. Half-wit didn't bother tightening up a coupling in the airing cupboard, causing a minor flood when the system was refilled. Half-wit left a pile of debris in the kitchen, despite the craftsman asking him to clear it up at least three times to my knowledge. Throughout the job, nothing was straightforward, and the craftsman worked like a Trojan to complete the job on time, but he was doing the work of one and a half men. Half-wit spent an awful lot of time mooning over his phone. He was in luurrve. At the end of the job, several plastic bags of rubbish were left behind to be picked up the next day by a driver. A fortnight later I took them to the tip myself. Now I have to find someone to fit a new gas fire because you tell me you don't do that sort of work..

Not satisfied with the price quoted for maintenance contract. Telephoned customer service several times to obtain a more realistic price without success. I asked to speak to someone in charge but I have not been contacted. Very dissatisfied with the customer care provided.
