Q. Do you sell appliances?

A. Appliances today are so varied and the technical specifications differ for every appliance, so as a general rule we don't specialise in selling appliances. We can sell a small variety, but this is very limited. We are more than happy if you source your own appliances and then we will ensure they are fitted and installed correctly. See our 'Appliance Advice' page for more information which also has links to specialised appliance suppliers who can better assist you.
