    Things to consider

    Home checks

    American fridge freezers are a lot wider and bulkier than regular models. So, you’ll need to make sure you choose the right width and that it’ll definitely fit through your door.

    Before you buy, check the space around where your appliance will go. Can you open the doors without hitting the side cabinets? This’ll make sure it fits perfectly and you can use it properly. Also, if you’ve chosen a plumbed in model, you’ll need access to a water supply.

    Plan your route into your home for delivery - measure your doorways and any tight spots like corners that may be tricky. You can take off the appliance doors to get it through if it’s a squeeze.

    Top tips to remember...

    These are large appliances. You'll need to measure your space to make sure they fit.

    You'll need space either side so that the doors can open without hitting cupboards.

    Plumbed in models need to be within 5 metres of a water supply.
