Connection £ 9.99
We’ll get your new fridge freezer in place, level the feet and take away all the bulky packaging for you. Your new appliance will need to sit for a few hours before it’s plugged in. This is important as it ensures the gas coolant inside the fridge settles
Disposal £ 19.99
We’ll happily take away your old appliance for you and recycle it. All we ask is that it's disconnected, emptied, fully defrosted and free of any ice and water. The fee for this service relates to the cost of taking your old appliance away on our van rather than the recycling service.

This grey fridge freezer from Hotpoint will store groceries for the whole household. It has 338 litres of space inside, which is the same as 18 shopping bags of food. It has a built-in water dispenser, so you can use it to make ice cold drinks at the touch of a button. This model has a hygiene protection system, which cleanses the air within the fridge to prevent the build-up of mould and bacteria, so your food will stay fresh for longer. This model also requires manual defrosting.

Oh so quiet
This H8A1ESBWTD 60/40 Fridge Freezer comes in a dark silver graphite colour so will fit in with any kitchen colour scheme. It has a slightly metallic appearance but a smooth matt feel to it making it easy to wipe clean.
It is a very large appliance with a split of 60% fridge and 40% freezer, making it suitable for a small family.
It arrives all ready to go by simply plugging into the mains electric. After leaving it overnight to reach the cool temperatures I loaded up both the fridge and freezer and was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was,with no noticeable hum or running sounds at all.
I liked that there are no external door handles (as I have found they can break over time), just a cut out under the fridge and on top of the freezer. You do have to give quite a bit of a pull to open as there is a strong internal seal, which is comforting knowing that all the coldness is going to stay in the appliance, and small children are not going to be able to open the doors. The seal also keeps food cold for 24 hours if there is a power cut.
The doors can be reversed but we left as they came with a right hinge opening.
There are three things that I especially like about this fridge: one being the hygiene protection feature which helps clean the air to prevent mould and bacteria – even a regularly cleaned fridge can develop mould around the seal and the back trap so anything to help is welcomed. The second is the humidity slide on the salad draw where you can adjust the levels preferable to salad or fruits. We also love the cold water filter option where you can fill with tap water which is then filtered and chilled ready for dispensing from the closed front door. Sadly this feature does mean you lose some door storage space, although there is still room for your eggs, butter and some table sauces. Along with the main fridge area, which has 3 adjustable glass shelves and 1 fixed shelf on top of the salad draw, there is plenty of storage space.
The freezer has two full sized pull out draws and one that is ¾ size.
Overall it has an A+ energy rating with estimated usage costs of less than £50 per year!
The only small feature I would have liked to have seen on this appliance is a buzzer when the door is left open for too long. But overall I am very happy with it, I love how quiet it is, the modern clean look of the appliance and the large fridge.
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet
