Connection Service Details

 

 

Washers, Washer Dryers and Dishwashers

 

Before ordering a connection service, please check:

 

  1. There is enough space for your appliance
  2. There is access to the working water connections with stop valves, an independent waste pipe and electrical socket.
  3. You do not need an existing hot water supply to be capped off. Please note – most new appliances are cold water fill only. We will only turn off the hot water valve – and check it is not leaking. It is advisable to have this supply capped off securely – this is NOT part of our connection service.
  4. That any carpentry alterations are not required as we are not able to offer this.
  5. Please note connection cannot be made into bathrooms or shower rooms.
  6. Please check there are no extensions to the water, electrical and waste connections as we will not be able to complete the installation if any of these exist.

Appliance Removal
As part of our delivery service we also provide an eco friendly removal service for old large kitchen items for a fee of £9.99. When delivering your new appliance the drivers can take away the old appliance which will then be disposed of by us in an environmentally friendly manner. We also remove all the product packaging; again this is taken back to our warehouse and recycled - following the directive from the WEEE regulations.

 

With effect from July 2007, the UK's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations encourages business and consumers to arrange collection and recycling of household electrical appliances. Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams increasing 5% per year, it has been estimated that landfill space in the UK will run out within the next 10 years.
To fulfil our obligations as a retailer, The Co-operative have contributed to the Valpak WEEE Distributor Take Back Scheme
