Installation Guide

Our Installation Guide

  Let our installation team deliver and install your new home appliance.We offer a range of installation and disposal packages.Please discuss your requirements with our sales staff before you purchase.

  •   Laundry and Dishwashing appliances, ensure your waste pipe, water supply and electricity connections are no more than 1m away from where the appliance will be.
  •  For freestanding appliances, ensure you have a 13 amp 3 pin plug socket for connection.
  •  Unless it's a condenser tumble dryer, ensure there is an existing vent near the intended location
  •   Ensure the appliance fits in your chosen location. Call us, we are here to help.
  •   For integrated and semi-integrated installations, make sure your kitchen units are able to house the new appliance - alterations to modify units may be available, please ask at time of purchase.
  •   If you're having a hob installed, check it will fit in the space allocated - we can only make minor alterations to some types of worktop.
  • For a hob or cooker, check the space around the heat source is in line with the recommended dimensions. As a general guide the hood should be 50cm above an electric hob or 65cm for a gas hob. The side and rear space required around a hob is generally 5cm.

Before we deliver:

  • For installation, please drain or wipe out your current appliance.
  • For disposal, please drain or clear out your current appliance. If we aren't installing your new appliance, please also disconnect your current appliance.
  •  Identify where the mains water switch is in your home - check you can switch it off.
