I need help moving a new boiler into my basement and to have the old boiler removed from my basement. It will be a warranty return less than 1 year of use so the old one must be kept intact. The supply house will only drop off the boiler outside in the driveway.
I contacted the contractor who did the original job but they want me to pay for the new one and when the old one is returned a credit will be issued. Above that they want me to pay over $5k to swap out the old and put in the new (exact same model.) All the plumbing, electric and gas are the same. I am going to try other plumbers to see if they can do the job at a better price. But I want to see about ways to get the new one in and the old one out. It weighs between 400 and 500 lbs. I think the crated up shipping weight is 500lbs.
Doing a search for boiler removal was not too helpful I will try to search for labor help.
