Services Connection, Disposal


  • Connection £15.00

    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. Unfortunately, our drivers won't be able to fit the handles on your new appliance if they're packed separately.

  • Disposal £20.00

    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.

Finance From £7.94 a month (APR 19.9%)


If your order is £199 or more, you can spread the cost with our finance options.

Lovely Fridge Freezer

Fit into our limited space perfectly. Works well and good build quality.

Well worth the price

I needed fridge freezer very quickly as my own had packed up I'd had it 25 years. This has a lot of storage space and I hope it lasts just as long

Very pleased

The fridge freezer is perfect exactly as described and big enough for everything we want. It is quieter than our last one too 😀

Replacement for an older Indesit fridge-freezer

Previous freezer Indesit CA55 bought Aug 2012 packed up very early in it's life and I was very disappointed. I like Indesit products, first fridge bought 50 yrs ago was this make, and dishwashers have been quite good, so I was torn between going for another make and staying with Indesit. After much research I found what looked like an almost identical model - CAO55.1 at AO, and bought one. It looks superficially like the previous one, but is in fact VERY different. If you are buying a free-standing freezer, it is very important to know how the waste heat is dissipated. Most designs have a black finned radiator at the rear, as did my original model. Many (recent, and usually cheaper) designs have the cooling pipes embedded into the cabinet sides, which means they get hot when the compressor is working. Why does this matter? If the condenser is at the back, you can place the freezer in-between two kitchen units. The user manual for the first one says you need to allow 5cm either side. This is I think so it will be reasonably easy to move into place, and there will be nothing touching to cause rattling noises. It's not really a thermal issue. My new freezer has turned out to be a "hot-sided" type, The manual is very vague about spacing. "To guarantee adequate ventilation, leave a space on both sides and above..." is all it says. Fortunately (I hope) I have enough clearance but it is in summertime that it could become an issue. I had disregarded cheaper makes ("hot-sided") because I thought the new Indesit would be rear-cooled like it's predecessor The customer service team at AO were not in a position to know the cooling method when I emailed them about this in respect of a Candy freezer i was considering, as apparently the manufacturers do not supply them with this information. They said I would need to approach the manufacturer myself. This is not practicable if you are considering several makes and models. Otherwise, the new Indesit is working OK and gets down to the right temperature according to a thermometer. The LED light in the fridge is sad and miserable. The plastic in the fridge baskets seems thinner and fragile compared to the previous model. In conclusion, I'm OK with this so far, but definitely not delighted.

The fridge

So, my fridge freezer broke down at the most inconvenient time.... I had to sort it within the day before returning to work. AO were brilliant. Next day delivery before I even needed to get ready for work! The whole thing sits well in the space I have for it looks sleek and tidy. The cooking ability is spot on and keeps the beers on the slightly colder side than my old one! Perfect. Really impressed and happy with the product! Hopefully it doesn’t let me down....no signs it will!

Fantastic Fridge Freezer

The fridge freezer is brilliant great storage in the freezer drawers are a good size. The fridge is also good on storage ample space for all my needs, great buy
