Do you provide installation and connection?
At the present time we only offer a limited service for in-store customers only. We hope to extend this service in the near future and will keep you posted.
What about Collection?
If you prefer to collect your item(s) then you will be provided with this option on checkout. You must leave a telephone number so we can contact you and arrange for your order to be available at our Birmingham warehouse free of charge!
Will you take my old appliance away?
We provide an additional service to take your old appliance away for you to be recycled at the same time as delivering your new one. There is a small charge for this service to cover transportation costs (space on vehicle) and no charge is made for the disposal of your old appliance. For your peace of mind, all appliances removed are subject to recycling and disposal processes in full compliance with the WEEE directive.
The item to be recycled must be outside the property we deliver to on the date of delivery. If the item is not ready for collection then you will have to find alternative means to recycle it as we cannot do another trip to collect it. Please note that the recycle charge of £9.99 is non refundable (see terms & conditions).
Can someone sign for the Delivery on my behalf?
The simple answer to that would be, yes. However, you must be aware that anyone who signs on your behalf takes full responsibility of accepting the order and the exact rules apply as if you had signed for it yourself.
What about Delivery?
We deliver up to 200 miles from our warehouse location and delivery charge is generally £19.95 or free for small items. Larger items such as range cookers and American style fridge freezers are charged from £40 depending on your location. If you are located outside our delivery range, we can arrange for a 3rd party courier on you behalf however be aware as most white goods are too large a package for regular couriers the cost of delivery can be from £60 to over £100. We use a combination of our own vehicles and drivers supported by third party logistics providers to undertake our deliveries. We use this approach to keep down the cost of delivery. Our standard delivery service means your product(s) can take up to 10 working days to be delivered. Usually it is much quicker than this. However, should you need a more urgent delivery then please select our express delivery service (subject to availability). For a small additional charge delivery will be made within 3 working days. Please note all deliveries will be made to the (ground floor) doorstep.

What if I receive my product damaged?
For Graded and Ex-display Items: If your inspection shows that an item has damage not previously advised then you must inform the driver of this damage, detail it on the delivery notes and contact us on 0121 328 4445 for further instructions whilst the driver is still present. If this occurs outside of our business hours (see contact us page) then the item must be rejected by the customer and returned with the driver. Please note: all built in appliances we sell may/may not have dent/scratches to the housing that are unseen when appliance fitted and do not affect performance nor warranty. We only describe the visible surfaces of built in appliances as seen when they are installed.

Why has my appliance arrived without a connection cable?
All built in single ovens, double ovens, electric hobs and freestanding electric cookers we sell are sold without a power cable. Safety legislation dictates that our electric cookers must be installed by a qualified electrician who should supply the correct size cable and carry out the necessary safety tests and for this reason the product is supplied without cable.
