This will help you plan your day without having to waste time waiting around. We will send you details of how to track your order from the morning of your delivery day.

How do I find out when my appliances will be delivered?

We confirm this to you at the point of choosing your delivery date. In the few cases where we can't confirm this at the point of order, a member of our team will contact you to agree a convenient delivery day and confirm the stock is available.

What happens if you can't deliver?

We're here for you every step of the way. Just call our advice line on 0344 257 3442 and we'll either resolve the problem for you over the telephone or we'll organise for a manufacturer's engineer to visit. Please make sure you have your serial number handy when calling in, as our team will need this to book in your engineers visit. If you have a small TV (under 37") we may need you to take it to your local service centre, but don't worry we'll make sure it all goes smoothly.

Recycling and the WEEE Directive

What is the WEEE Directive?

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. With effect from July 2007, the WEEE regulations require that all retailers both actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment. Producers of Electrical and Electronic EEE will be required to finance the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of EEE at its end of life.

What does the new directive mean for the retailer?

We want to help the UK become a greener place to live and as a result we're right behind the WEEE directive. We take our role as a responsible retailer very seriously and always strive to do what we can to help the environment.We're proud to be recommended by the Energy Saving Trust as a retailer of energy saving appliances and actively encourage our customers to buy Green.

What does the new directive mean for the environment?

We all like to do our bit for the environment and here at ao.com we're no different. Instead of your old appliances going to land fill, it will be treated separately and disposed of in an environmentally sound way.

Can you take away and recycle my old appliance?

Of course we can. For a cost of £14.99 we can take away your old appliance and recycle it for you, just call 0344 257 3442 once you have placed your order to request this service.

So that we can take your old appliance away, you will need to make sure that it has been completely disconnected from all water, electrical and gas supplies in advance. We also need the appliance to be emptied and defrosted (if it's a freezer or fridge freezer) before we take it away too.

We currently don't offer any disconnection service on gas or mains wired electrical products. You'll need a Gas Safe registered engineer to disconnect these appliances for you.

All mains wired electric cookers should only be disconnected by a qualified technician.

All the goods collected for recycling are deemed to have zero value.

We're sorry that we can only provide this service to certain UK postcodes at the moment.

Will my old appliance not be disposed of correctly if I choose not to have my old appliance taken away by ao.com?

If you decide not to opt for our full recycling service, we have contributed towards a fund which will help local councils to develop and improve their existing WEEE collection facilities. Not all council sites are able to collect all types of waste electrical goods but to find your nearest participating site, and for advice on all aspects of recycling at home, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk

Alternatively, if you wish to return your appliance to us with no charge, it can be accepted at our distributor's premises at the following address: Expert Logistics
Weston Road
Crewe
Cheshire
CW1 6BF

Appliances can be accepted from Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm. As you would expect, they'll need proof of your delivery and they can only accept like for like items to those that were delivered.
