I have just moved services from "Corgi" who were useless to BG. BG offered a 10% discount for "Premiium 4" which seems to cover more than Corgi and the free Hive lights and boxes. All this for £17.50/mth and Corgi/others were £19.99/month.

The two "free" Hive products do not arrive straight away. You get an e-mail notification within 28 days and then you get the option of what type of bulb you require as in fittings. I believe you then order, but yet to get that far.

BG have been more responsive after having to chase Corgi last year 5-6 times for my annual service and this year not even any contact!! Corgi wanted to reduce their monthly cost and offered me an in instant service engineer, but I said no and await a credit of £48.

BG, I have an engineer coming on Friday to service my boiler.

Fingers crossed. For me, have some heat.

At least Corgi are regulated, being insurance backed.
I was totally ripped off by 247 Home Rescue (avoid like the plague) and couldn't get anywhere with complaints when they didn't provide anything! Luckily, I claimed back some money from my bank!

BG are fairly expensive, but I use them for landlord cover now. They can be reliable, but I suppose they too will have their 'off days'.

What happened with 247 home rescue?

Ive signed up to 247 recently and not had any issues so far, not called them up as of yet. They did say that they service boilers once youve been a customer for 8 months.

Also 247 offer monthly rolling contracts too.

Did they charge you for boiler service?

Basically i signed up a month ago, when i called for boiler service they wanted to charge me £60 which they would deduct from my monthly fee!

They wouldnt service my boiler till ive been with them for 8 months. So not sure whats going on there!

I just joined Home Serve with their offer of Home Serve 8 with boiler service. The only terms they mentioned to me was I cannot make a claim within 14 days of start and the Boiler service will be carried out within 90 days of start of contract

Thanks for the link. Sorry I'm a bit ignorant about this but was looking to get the hive for my central heating.

I can only see a free smart light kit - with hive hub included. Would you know what else I need so I can use this with the central heating too?

Thank you.

(Option 2 - 12.50 ×12 =150 seems good for the hive and boiler service included too!)

I used to have Boiler Care with BG with my old boiler and although they had to keep coming back* they were great. They even came out on the same day once!

*Took them a while to sort the problem as a clean etc normally got the boiler working again! But be wary they did increase my premium the year after due to the number of call outs I had!

I have homeserve through my contents insurance through Aviva. Its breakdowns only and get service seperately. Think its an extra few pound a month.

Been great.
When we first moved in we had a gas leak on boiler and had engineer on site to repair within 2hrs.
Second call out was when toilet would not flush. Engineer on site within the hour and carried out cctv inspection and drain jet.

Thumbs up from me

There is another option where you can pay an extra £9 per month and have The Whole Hive heating package installed

Basically, they are unregulated and IMHO, cowboys.
Hope it works out for you, but many, many bad reviews and many complaints to Trading Standards, who are investigating.
Stick to those that are insurance backed and regulated. There is a reason, I suppose, why they aren't insurance backed!

I'm not too sure, the rolling contract must be something new. Originally it was a set amount per month for one year with the option to take out a further year for the same price. But, they increased the monthly fee by £3 and never informed customers. The increase should have triggered a release, so presumably the reason for no notification letters. They wouldn't refund when requested and the only viable way was to use the Direct Debit Guarantee and do a charge-back.
A rolling contract may still need some sort of notice. Obtain professional advice.
I don't get the waiting for eight months for a service though.

The above link and comments refer to a 24/7HR company. Is that British Gas then?

I took my cover through uswitch in November.

Back then it was a rolling contract. My welcome letter from 247 says 30 day rolling contract.
"We dont need contracts to keep a customer, were that good"

Ive printed it and kept a copy! I called up today to cancel too and they said yep fine i can cancel after my next direct debit. Was told to stop the DD after next payment.

My concern is they might try and take payment after ive cancelled etc or affect my credit rating. But my letter clearly says rolling contract so i have proof in case it comes to that.

Any help for me guys....Imy just about to this Friday 6th January have my boiler replaced with BG can I claim these bulbs as I've taken up the hive control too.
#28
I signed up on the website for Homecare Three (never had boiler cover but decided it was probably time!) when this free Hive Hub & Bulbs offer was on... it was 100% on the website and was the motivator for me to actually sign up however going through paperwork I've received so far and my welcome email there is zero mention of it - concerned I'm going to get screwed somehow.

They've also pulled any references off the website so I can't find any way of establishing how long I have to wait to receive the Hive products. Anyone signed up and received theirs yet?

Hi . I signed up at the time of offer. rang BG today to arrange the annual service. no mention of having to wait 8 mths for service. in terms of Hive Active light offer. I like you concerned that removed if website and no mention in paperwork . Mentioned whilst booking service and advised that offer was showing on account and confirmed sent within 28 days of setting account up.

I signed up for everything in October 2016 online. Some weeks later I emailed them to ask about the hive light kit (and additional nectar points i thought were also on offer). They asked me to send them proof (email or post) to show the offer. I don't have any proof. I sent back a response explaining that. Heard nothing for two weeks. Sent another email asking for the matter to be escalated to a manager. Received an email back saying that I would get a response in two weeks. Then two weeks later received a letter stating that it was being dealt with as a formal complaint.
So I am still awaiting a response.
Does anyone know where this offer was listed. Was it actually on their website or was it on another site like moneysavingexpert or money supermarket for example?

Trust me, you won't get anything from them. My mother-in-law had a battle with them years ago when they advertised free nectar points for joining BG energy, think it was £100 of nectar but not 100% sure. She had numerous phone calls, got escalated etc., she only got something like £10-£20 of nectar points in the end as a "goodwill gesture", absolute joke :(
