Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited Invests in Logistics to Benefit Retailers

Whirlpool UK is the only major domestic appliance manufacturer in the UK to manage a home-delivery service of their appliances directly to the consumer.

A significant investment has been made to expand the service and further offer a seamless service for the company’s customers. Whirlpool UK now offers seven-day delivery of Hotpoint, Indesit and Whirlpool branded products, with next-day delivery available on orders made before 1800 hours.

Additionally, Whirlpool UK is now also offering installation of their built-in appliances1. This service is available on the leading ranges of built-in appliances, including the Hotpoint Class 9, Indesit Aria and the Whirlpool Fusion ranges of cooking appliances.

Karen Slack, Senior Project Manager, Supply Chain, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited says: “The major expansion of our logisitics service enables further enhancement of the customer journey, offering a complete solution and service from the point of purchase through to the final installation. For retailers, this offers a considerable advantage, raising their game in the delivery and installation services available, while being able to compete in the ever-challenging white goods environment today.”

Ian Moverly, Brand Communications Director, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited says: “We understand that the purchasing journey of a major domestic appliance can be complex. We want our consumers to have a professional and seamless end-to-end experience. The final ten steps of the home delivery process is the most crucial in the whole journey of purchasing an appliance; our strategy has been to realign our home delivery service to offer a smooth experience to all of our customers.”

For more information on the new delivery and installation terms and conditions, please contact your Hotpoint, Indesit or Whirlpool account manager.
