What a refreshing change! We needed to change our under counter fridge and freezer but of course, the design of appliances has changed since we last bought ours so we needed some help with product choice. We visited the big chains and various online sites but all we were presented with were problems to the point we gave up several times. Then somebody recommended Whitakers. We got the help we needed a friendly service and they were prepared to hold the products in stock until our kitchen work was complete. The sales staff are highly knowledgeable and the price was competitive. Then we come to the delivery which we always dread in this sector as inevitably somebody finds a problem blames it on the salesperson and you then start having to argue with everyone. Whitaker's delivery team did find problems but resolved each one and with a smile. Fantastic. It is great to deal with a company where the delivery staff are knowledgeable and clearly proud of the company they work for. Overall a sensational experience. We will be back.

I recently purchased a washer dryer from Whitakers. I was presented with several options, all suitable for my needs with varying differences between each model. The staff, especially Luke, were all very knowledgeable and demonstrated how the machine worked. They were the most competitively priced so there was no need to price match anywhere else on the internet, which they said they would have done anyway. I would definitely recommend to anyone else looking for white and brown goods and will definitely be using them again. 5 stars.

I would just like to say how happy we were with your service yesterday. Our fridge freezer needed replacing and you did just that, the same morning, what a relief with the weather being so hot. May I also say your two men did an excellent job and were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely use you again when we need to buy a new appliance. Thank you so much.

Further to my phone call today, I wish to comment how delighted I am with my appliance purchase. It is excellent quality and looks very presentable!
The service I received from walking in the shop to the installation today has been first class. I have made several purchases from your company over the last 12 years and yet again sales and delivery personnel were lst class.

Just a card to thank you for the way you dealt with my Lec fridge which had ceased to operate yesterday morning. I had contacted another company prior to yours, but it was repairs only and did not do sales. I told them of my problem but was not convinced by their answers. It was only after that I rang yourselves, that you asked me to check if the plug was out of the socket. To my horror and eventual relief, that was the only fault. The first time this has happened in 55 years at this address! I am very grateful and therefore felt I should send this to you.

Dear staff at Whitakers,
You recently installed a new oven and dishwasher for my father and mother in law, Mr and Mrs Firth of Stoney Ridge. I am writing to express sincere thanks and gratitude for the fantastic service provided throughout.
From my initial enquiry and informing you of the state of health they are both in, every aspect was handled with such consideration and tact. Everyone at the showroom was very helpful and polite, making them feel at ease. The installation took place exactly as planned, with both installers continuing the courteous, efficient and friendly service. Communication throughout was excellent, with everything we had asked for being done. This very personal service, combined with matching the best price around means we won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know.
Please pass this message to all concerned.
Many thanks, Matt Firth.

First class service, first class guys. My hob died a week before I was due to move out of my apartment. Less than 24 hours after contacting Richard I had a new hob fitted.. beautiful and it didn't break the bank. Honest, quick, reliable and lovely people what more could you ask for?

My wife and I have used Whitakers for more than ten years for our domestic appliances, as well as the kitchen appliances for our rental properties.
I have complete faith in Richard and his team to advise on the right product, offer a competitive price and provide a level of service that simply does not exist with many other retailers.
I am always happy to recommend Richard and the team at Whitakers of Shipley.

I just wanted to take the time to send you a profound Thank You for your excellent and incredibly fast response to my urgent phone call on Thursday evening 6th July.
British Gas had just told me that could not visit that day as confirmed due to their engineer being out of area and that they could not actually get to see me until the following Tuesday. This was totally unacceptable as I have a rather old washing machine that was leaking water all over the kitchen floor. I decided that I finally needed to bite the bullet and get a new machine however I needed a good quality machine replacement and needed to have it plumbed in and the old one removed as soon as possible.
When I rang you Thursday evening I fully expected that you would not be able to get a machine installed until the next Monday at the earliest however I was very pleased that not only could you call me back within a few minutes with the exact make and model I required, at a price better than available online I may add, but you also fitted me into your very busy schedule and came over to see me on the Saturday afternoon.
It was an awkward integrated unit but you speedily removed the old machine with a minimum of fuss and fitted the new machine in a very short space of time and completely cleared up after yourselves.
Such exceptional service and customer care is very rare to find nowadays and I felt it was the least I could do to send you an e-mail to express my thanks.
You can rest assured that whenever any of my friends , family or colleagues mention they need any sort of kitchen appliance I will personally recommend you in the highest terms.
Thank you once again.

Five star service from Whitakers. Keith arrived promptly following our request to repair our washing machine. He was professional, efficient and friendly. He identified the fault, ordered the parts and returned to complete the repair as soon as the parts arrived. Excellent communication throughout with Keith and Luke who kept us fully informed throughout the process. Outstanding customer service which exceeded our expectations.

Having used Whitakers of Shipley on many occasions, I felt confident to seek advice from them when planning my kitchen remodel. I outlined my kitchen design space, financial limitations and basic requirements. What I received in return was excellent advice on the range of products that would best suit my needs; From the Neff oven (with a hide-n-slide + self-cleaning function) to the Fisher & Paykel Twin Dishdrawer (which works beautifully in narrow galley kitchens ) I was more than impressed. The product which I was most excited about was the Quooker Boiling Water Tap. Having access to instant boiling water and being able to do away with some ‘counter clutter’ while saving money on heating was one of the best suggestions yet – It has become somewhat of a party trick and a talking point.
The team at Whitakers delivered everything on time and with great care. Support and advice was also freely offered when I needed help during the installation process.
I can’t rate Whitakers of Shipley highly enough. My new kitchen looks spectacular, they worked within my budget and exceeded my expectations. I’m already planning my next purchase - no high end kitchen is complete without some superb KitchenAid appliances.

I purchased a washing machine from Whitakers on Tuesday. Richard Whitaker told us they could fit on Thursday between 10am - 12pm, Andy and Mariusz arrived bang on 10am; what lovely young men they were, nothing was too much trouble. My washing machine is integrated. They had to take the door away for some alterations and said they would bring it back next week but they did the alterations in their dinner hour and brought it back the same afternoon. Congratulations Whitakers on such good customer relations and workmanship.

We just want to let you know what a good job your chaps did in delivering our fridge freezer yesterday afternoon. They negotiated our tight kitchen entrance with careful thought.
Mariusz the Polish guy was especially endearing and perfectly reflected Whitaker's customer service ethos - ie that nothing was too much trouble! It was clear that English wasn't his first language, but his temperament and communication skills were absolutely spot on.

Brilliant customer service from Richard at Whitakers. I purchased an ex display integrated coffee machine and at first, I was concerned that because it was ex display that it may have some superficial damage to it but Richard was true to his word and when it was delivered it was perfect and exactly how he described it. On top of that I had other issues with installing other appliances which I didn't purchase from Whitakers, but Richard was only to pleased to help and advise as well so just want to say a huge thanks and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from you again.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks and positive feedback about Luke and the service we have received from him over the last couple of weeks.
We initially met Luke when we came into the shop with quite a broad brief. Very quickly, he helped us to know what options were available. He took our details and the next day emailed us with a very comprehensive quote. Since then he has emailed us with very clear quotes, setting out several options he could offer us. I cannot speak highly enough of him.
Please pass on my thanks. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him and indeed your company to others in the future.

Hi Richard & Team
Thank you so much for your fantastic service - The washer is working fine and thank you for coming out on a Saturday Evening. My family has been buying appliances from you for decades and your service never waivers - great staff. You are always my recommendation to anyone for anything. My partner and I run a small specialist business ourselves and service at a fair (not the cheapest price) is what sorts the wheat from the chaff.
Many thanks to you all once again.

Thoroughly professional and friendly service. Excellent knowledge on all electrical products in store. Delivery on products was prompt and on day specified. No hard sell and guidance on product/s required. Will recommend Whitakers to anyone wanting a competitive price, quality electrical items and after sales service.
Thank you very much.
just a quick email to say how impressed we were with the courteous and professional manner of Mariusz and Keith who installed our new dishwasher today. This was no surprise as we have bought an appliance from you before and would not consider going anywhere else. Your level of customer care from initial telephone contact to delivery and installation is excellent.
I was very impressed with the service given by Whitakers, from ordering, delivering and fitting. They did what they said, which is rare in this day and age. Generally service is poor from other companies, not by this company. Brilliant, thanks very much.
Once again, exceptional service from Whitakers, moved to a new house and needed a new washer quickly. Speedy delivery, great delivery guys, superb attention to detail. Buy local folks you don’t get service like this from Curry’s, AO or even John Lewis.

I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing service and assistance to buy my new washing machine. Especially during the delivery as my property is particularly difficult to access and the new machine was slightly too large for the space in my kitchen.

A refreshing experience to deal with experienced / knowledgeable advisors rather than ordering online. Thank you.

Thank you so much for fitting the survey in for us at short notice.
However, having discussed things with our builder yesterday, I think I had misunderstood how much of this work could potentially be done by the builder and joiner. If we get the builder and joiner to do the work, they will also work closely with the electrician that we are using and a plumber that they know, which will essentially mean that we don't have to do any running around or organising on this one, which as we both work full time and we have two young children is a huge advantage for us. We have therefore decided not to proceed with the services you have quoted for. However, we are really grateful for you coming out to do the survey and we have been consistently impressed by how helpful, thorough and knowledgeable all of your staff have been.
I will contact Tracey to arrange delivery of the appliances.
Thanks again and best wishes,

Good Morning Traci,
I just wanted to thank Richard, Luke and the delivery men, sorry I did not get there names, for all your help with supplying me a new Bosch Fridge Freezer. I did some research first but as you pointed out; the size I wanted and the specification is quite rare and consequently expensive to get a 700mm wide X 2200 mm high as not many manufactures do that size but you found it and gave me a great price. I have used Whitakers many times before over the years and in fact there is not a domestic appliance in my kitchen or utility that has not come from Whitakers.
I must thank Traci for her understanding, as it took quite a few emails between us before getting the right one, a Bosch. Traci saved me time and money by doing the research on different models, different manufacturers and she even looked at reviews too. This level of service I have not experienced anywhere else. When I settled on Traci's recommendation, within a few days the team at Whitakers rang me to say that my huge new Fridge Freezer was ready to be delivered, which by the way was not easy as this thing is big 2200mm high and 700 wide but the guys from Whitakers did a fantastic job they removed my old one which by the way is the same size !! and disposed of that for me and fitted the new one, not only that but they took all the packing off and carefully fitted it in to my utility, and even fitted all the shelves and removed all of the protective internal packing and told me how it works too. I would not hesitate to recommend Whitakers of Shipley to my friends and family as the company works as a tight knit team delivering 7 star service from the enquiry to the delivery and fitting.
Thank you once again.

The level of customer service provided by Whitakers has been outstanding. In combination with being competitve on price, Richard and his team have demonstrated they are in a league of their own. Richard’s level of knowledge of the products I was interested in made my decision process so much easier alongwith several, free of charge, site visits to ensure I had the right solution for the space available. I was extremely grateful for this support and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. When it came to the installation of my appliances, the installation engineers, Mariusz and Andy, were extremely polite, efficient and skilled at what needed to be done. A slight subsequent adjustment was required to one appliance and this was sorted out by them the very next day with the same efficiency and courtesy. Again, with nothing being too much trouble. Thank you Richard, Luke, Mariusz and Andy. You have a very happy customer!

I would like to thank you very much for your work in fitting an oven, gas hob and cooker hood. Once we had made our choice, the order was processed very quickly and the installation completed equally swiftly, just two days before Christmas. The job was done very efficiently and effectively, but also with due care to detail. The installation of the hood was tricky in that the wall behind the cooker is tiled and it seemed inevitable that the tiling would suffer from the installation of the hood; however, such was the care taken that the tiling looks brand new. The same care was taken with the cooker and hob. The engineer was prompt, courteous, and helpful, explaining everything to me clearly and answering my questions carefully. From start to finish, a perfect job!

I have nothing but praise for this shop and it's wonderful staff. My oven broke down today just before I was due to open the shop for business. I ran down to Whitakers and explained my situation. Richard was on it straight away. I had a new oven brought to me and installed before my first customer came in. No disruption to my business what so ever and for a very good price too. I was able to have a little look around the shop as Richard was working to get me what I needed and was pleasantly surprised at the range of things they hold. I would definitely recommend dealing with these guys for anything electrical. Keep it local! Thank you Whitakers, you literally saved my bacon this morning as this is what I was cooking in the old oven before it decided to give up on life.
