Help, I need a new boiler and quickly before the winter weather returns. Can anyone recommend an honest reliable plumber/boiler installer in the area? They have to be CORGI registered. I'm also interested in the Green Boiler Scheme, has anyone had any experience with this?
While I'm at it I might as well ask about good and inexpensive carpenters as well to build shelves - I know it is almost a contradiction in terms 'good and inexpensive' but I live in hope!

Whatever you do, avoid pimlioco plumbers. I was told they would guarantee a price of ~2.2K + VAT for a boiler and installation. In the end I paid half that for a top-end German-made boiler, cash in hand. Get a Vaillant, collect quotes - and avoid Pimlico.

Good luck.

Have you tried the CORGI website? You can put in the postcode of the area you are in and it will list several registered contractors in your area.

I used Kevin Turner who is listed on this site, under SE1. He was reliable, came around that night, and charged about 50% of the prices I had been quoted earlier that day over the phone.

Good luck.
