Get a service engineer who is local to you and services your neighbours' boilers. They do not need to speak English as they know what to do!

If you get a local engineer they will look after you as they do not have to travel lots of kilometers to service your boiler.

To answer your second question only. Well, Yes, actually, but I do not write because of prejudice; I write because of expensive personal experience. I offered my advice in the hope of steering the original poster away from the mistakes I have made.

So are all ex-pats incompetant? You seem to be in the business of running ex-pats down.

Do you have any evidence to back up your apparent predujice?

Mr. Buj is english speaking and works as a service engineer for Combustibles de l'Ouest. But why specify that you want an english speaking engineer. What you need is an engineer who is competent to service your boiler and my experience is that if you put the language skills as a first priority you are likely to end up with an incompetent ex-pat. Most of the oil suppliers have engineers and most have enough english to accept your orders.
