Fitting Service

What the service includes.

  • We transport the appliance to the desired location within the property and remove any packaging.
  • We then remove any transit bolts or fastenings, and then inspect the product in full.  Checking for marks, and ensuring that any hinges are free moving.
  • We then inspect the requested connections.  Ensuring that they are correct and in proper condition. We cannot hardwire any appliances in.  Any plug sockets must be in good condition and the facia must be complete with no missing or damaged parts.  Any water connection must be to a 3/4 BSP (British Standard Pipe Thread) connection.
  • We then position the appliance checking clearances, stability and levels.
  • We will plug everything in and turn it on before we leave.

The following types of item are not included in the Connection Service.

  • Integrated or built in appliances.
  • Cooking appliances - If we do offer a service this will be given as a separate product.

Please ensure your old appliance has been disconnected and removed from the install location before we arrive (we advise a minimum of a day before the delivery date).  There also must be adequate space for our engineer to work in, free from obstruction or hazard.  Any obstacles must be removed from the install location and the path taken into and through the property.  All flooring must also be protected.  This route must also be big enough for a minimum width totalling that of the appliance plus 20cm from the floor to the height of the appliance.
