James Ramsay Launches Boiler Hire Service

We have launched a dedicated boiler hire service to support customers across Scotland and Northern England.

Raymond Shepherd, Managing Director at James Ramsay, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer the market our new boiler hire service. It’s another string to our bow which means we can offer customers the complete one stop shop facility when it comes to their boiler and heating requirements.

“Whether it’s a catastrophic failure of an existing boiler, such as a flood or fire, or if planned boiler maintenance or replacement work is required, we can respond quickly to deliver and install a temporary hot water boiler solution.”

We offer a 24/7 emergency response call out, a full delivery and installation service, and short or long term boiler hire to best suit our customers’ requirements. Due to the company’s central Scotland location, highly competitive rates are available to organisations throughout Scotland and Northern England.
