Whitakers have been superb!
Recommended by friends & family. I remember my parents shopping there when I was a child. It is no surprise that this family run business is still thriving. As with most purchases for our extension I get at least 3 prices from different suppliers. Whitakers were great from the outset, they provided a really detailed quote & addressed all our requirements at various stages of our reviews of the specs & costs. Their manner was professional throughout, nothing too difficult for them. We were subject to supply chain issues from a leading manufacturer, COVID probably adding to this. Whitakers went out of their way to resolve this & communication was great.
We shall definitely be using Whitakers again.

Just a quick note to comment on your brilliant service.
I was dreading my new dishwasher installation as previous companies had issues and more or less told me it had to be a bodge job to fit it. Last time I ordered from John Lewis online thinking the service would be better. It was not.
Charlie from WH Kershaw recommended you as I was keen to use a local company. I’m so glad he did. Efficient installation and the chap took the time to go through all the pros and cons of each appliance setting. That has never happened with previous companies.
He said he had a busy day ahead but I wasn’t made to feel rushed at all.
As a local business owner myself I know people are quick to complain but slow to praise and therefore I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with all aspects of your service.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you now and don’t plan to use any other company but Whitaker’s going forward.

Excellent service. Had a vacuum repaired and also had a Miele washing machine and dryer installed and Richard was very knowledgeable and advised us in the right direction to purchase the products that suited our needs. Also offered to lend a washing machine until our new machine arrived which was fabulous and a great help. I have not seen any other companies doing that. Definitely will go back for business and highly recommended. Great professional team.

As agreed, Mariusz returned this Wednesday to fix our dishwasher that, unfortunately, displayed a fault.
He was excellent. Polite, professional and thorough. He certainly is an asset in the quality of support work he provides and we hope you can pass on our feedback to him too.
We’re pleased to report the dishwasher appears to be working fine again after Mariusz identified the problem.

Dear Luke and Richard,

You've gained a customer for life!

I would like to register my thanks for the prompt and efficient service recently to my integrated fridge door. The gentleman who surveyed the problem was knowledgeable and diagnosed the solution immediately. It comprised of a bit of old fashioned "fettling" with the frame, together with minimal parts at a very reasonable cost.
The timing turn around of the repair was minimal, we were kept in the picture all the way through, totally different to the original supplier we contacted but who simply didn't want to know. So Whitakers is now my go to supplier for all repairs and purchases for your range of goods, you will not be my first port of call... but my only port of call.
Please thank the gentleman concerned, first class service all around.
Testimonial Ref: 16508
From the initial phone call with Richard to the two guys who arrived to fit my new appliance, I have received first class service from this company. I cannot fault the workmanship - they had to make alterations to the plinth in my kitchen in order to fit the appliance and I was worried this would be broken. I need not have been concerned, you cannot tell anything has changed. Well done guys! I am super impressed with everything they have done and shall definitely be using this local company again. A 5* service.

I phoned to enquire about a fridge and Keith was brilliant, offering excellent advice with a cheery attitude. Nothing was too much trouble.

We have been using the beast (Samsung American fridge/freezer) nearly a month now and we love it! Everything is super cold, we can see exactly what we have and readily available ice for the G&T is a happy plus.
On our final push to finish the (3½ year) renovation of our bungalow we had oak laid throughout the house and together with the beast the kitchen is pretty impressive.
The Dyson you recommended is perfect for this floor, light and easy to use it's a delight and I can vacuum the whole house quickly.
I just wanted to say thank you for getting us to this stage. We love it.
Hope all is well with you.

This company could not have been more helpful or efficient. I got a new washing machine from them today.

What superb service. I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with every aspect of dealing with your company. I chose to place an order for a 90cm range cooker and hood with you because of the helpfulness of your staff when I phoned, and I have not regretted it. You delivered exactly what I ordered, (to Edinburgh) when you said you would and kept me informed throughout. All this and you still managed to be £450 cheaper than John Lewis. Your customer care is exemplary - every single person I have spoken to in your company had upheld the same high standards. I cannot recommend you highly enough.

We have purchased an oven previously from Whitakers and the service was brilliant and therefore when we required a new kitchen with several appliances we decided again to visit Whitakers and had an in-depth conversation about what we needed and Richard gave his expertise and knowledge of products. All seven items were delivered when they said and perfect condition. They also removed to old appliances without any fuss. One of the products we ordered was out of stock and we were informed they had upgraded the hob but forgot to tell us. We would wholeheartedly recommend this company as the service they provide is exemplary and definitely provide a personal touch. They do not sell you a product you don't need but listen to the customer and their budget. A skill that other competitors do not have.

I felt I must write this email, on behalf of myself and my family to express our sincere thanks to you and your staff for the delivery of a washer and fridge freezer on the 4th July, to my Mothers address.
It was a delight, right from the start, when visiting your store and placing the order with you. We would definitely recommend Whitakers to friends and family and will have no hesitation in purchasing goods for ourselves, should the need arise.
I would especially like to say a massive "THANK YOU", to your Installation team, who did a fantastic job. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so professional and efficient.

After having a new washing machine and fridge supplied last year by Whitakers, I had no hesitation in choosing this top class local company for a new oven and hob.
I was not disappointed. The customer service is exemplary. Nothing is too much trouble. As on the previous occasion, the delivery and installation were textbook perfect.
For personal reasons, I had to cancel the first date for installation but Whitakers were most sympathetic and more than happy to reschedule at my convenience.

I have just had a new integrated fridge installed and the two gentlemen that fitted it were amazing, nothing was too much trouble.

Called on Thursday afternoon about our washer which had died. The Bosch engineer said it was beyond repair. Rang and asked if Whitaker’s had one available. Pleased to say they had, Richard said it would be possible to deliver that afternoon. At 6:00pm the two guys arrived with the new washer. Excellent service ... did exactly what it said on the tin. Will definitely use them again.

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.

I would definitely recommend to anyone else looking for white and brown goods and will definitely be using them again. 5 stars.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you so much for the fantastic service we have received from Whitakers. We ordered 2 Bosch items, 2 Miele items, and a Neff under counter fridge. During the process of ordering, I phoned Whittaker’s several times and spoke first to Andy who really gave me the confidence to order from your store in Shipley which is a very long way from where I live in Berkshire. His knowledge and the fact that he was able to track down the exact semi-integrated dishwasher I needed, was really impressive, as I had hunted everywhere for it unsuccessfully. Having made the decision to replace more appliances in my ancient kitchen, I went straight back to Whitakers. I spoke to Keith, Luke, and you Richard and on each occasion was helped and advised in the most professional and courteous way. Four of the Appliances arrived this morning and were fitted by Andy and Kamil really efficiently and without any problem. All the old appliances were taken away with all packing and boxes. It has been a real pleasure and privilege to deal with you and your colleagues at Whitakers and I will definitely recommend you to my friends and return to you myself when I need more items.

The service has always been second to none advice is always factual and whilst you may (or may not) save a few pounds elsewhere the price is well worth paying. Aftersales is also first-class going the extra mile to sort any problems.
My latest purchase of a freezer was ordered and promptly delivered without fuss. Do yourself a favour support your local retailers and get excellent value in return.

My sincere thanks to all the staff at Whitakers for the fantastic, knowledgable, courteous, friendly and efficient service I received from everyone involved. From the initial phone enquiry through to the appliance installation I cannot speak too highly of the exceptional customer service provided, with some staff (namely Andy and Clifford) going above and beyond the call of duty. It is rare in this day and age to experience such wonderful, professional service but this company certainly puts customer care at the heart of the business whilst being competitively priced as well. Thank you all.

Washer died last night, rang Whitakers at 2pm. The washer that I wanted was in stock, delivered at 5.15pm.
Now that’s service! A lovely family run local business. #shoplocal #familyrun #service #happywife

What a great experience. Having been recommended by a friend, I dealt with Richard online and by email to organise the right products for our kitchen. Richard and Mariusz did a great job installing the new products and adjusting the existing oven so everything was at the same height. A great service, at a great price. We’ll certainly come back next time we need an appliance for the kitchen.

Having ordered a tumble dryer from Euronics, I phoned Whitakers to check on delivery. Luke advised me that their delivery lorry was full for today's deliveries but that he would put it on his small van and make time to deliver it himself. It duly arrived on time this morning and he installed it for me, also helping me to move another heavy item. He then took away all the packaging. This type of service is the difference between a family business and the often "sell and forget" attitude of the multi-nationals. Excellent - 10 out of 10!

I wanted to say thank you for the excellent service that you have given me. From ordering, the emails received and the lovely people I have spoken to on the telephone. The final delight was from Maruisz and Andy who were polite, professional and very helpful. They are an asset to your company.
I really liked the 'old school' approach! I will not hesitate to recommend you, as I came to you from a friend's recommendation.
Many thanks to all the team.

Absolutely love my new oven, the service we received when choosing in-store was fabulous, the price comparison to John Lewis was appreciated. Richard & Maruisz who came to fit were superb.
Highly recommended this shop & after a recent bad experience with a top brand suppliers customer service I feel relieved that Whitakers is now my preferred to go.
Well done & thank you.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for sorting out the issues with my washer and not resting until you had a result! This is true customer service and I have posted a comment on Facebook to share my satisfaction!!
Thanks again. I appreciate all your hard work.

My fridge freezer broke and within five days Whitaker's delivered another. Top notch service from the shop and the fitters Andy and Mariusz were neat and tidy and informative about my new purchase. Would highly recommend.

We have never bought a brand new oven before however our advisor Richard from the Shipley store was extremely knowledgeable and truthful with us. We decided to buy a built-in Neff top of the range oven for our boat not only was it efficient and low power consumption, it cook's very well in a significantly reduced time frame. Delivery was exceptionally quick, customer service was impeccable, I couldn't recommend this store enough, they are competitive and reasonable, but most of all truthful and honest. Thank you so much very much appreciated.

Thank you for your help and advice with the appliances for our tiny kitchen. I know that I was doubtful about the top loading washing machine but it turns out Richard does know everything ! Thank you for coming to measure and then picking such cracking stuff. Nothing looks out of place in the small space and it all works wonderfully. You made it perfect.

I recently purchased a hob from a large retailer, only to find it would not fit, and they told me that because I had a 'difficult' sized hob they would not be able to help me. I then saw Whitakers and they could not have been more helpful. They came to my home and measured the broken hob and within hours. They then sourced a hob and offered to fit it within a week, as I had family coming to stay. In my opinion, Whitakers went above and beyond what the large retailer was willing to do. I understand that they do not only supply locally, so I will be recommending them far and wide. I could not stress enough to the engineers how grateful I was for the service I received from Whitakers.

I have now bought several appliances from Whitakers and have always been very satisfied. You get clear information with no hard sell, the delivery men come on time, are courteous , friendly and make sure you know how to use the appliance before they go. I’ll definitely go back there next time I need something.
Testimonial Ref: 11857
Whitakers customer service is exceptional. I have bought at least 3 kitchen appliances from them and they have always been helpful, but when my washing machine finally died in January they surpassed themselves. They not only found me a model which had all the features I wanted but also arranged a pinpoint delivery slot in my impossibly busy week, which fitted around my other commitments. The 2 people who came to install it were punctual, friendly, polite and so helpful. All in all - Brilliant!

I had a new small induction hob and combi oven installed by Andrew and Gareth. The whole process, from initial exploratory discussion to installation was 5 days. Everything happened just as promised. I give them top marks.

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. Your team were courteous, helpful and happy despite the challenge! I have already recommended you to several friends. A refreshing experience to deal with experienced / knowledgeable advisors rather than ordering online. Thank you.

Just had a replacement dishwasher fitted by Whitakers. What a super efficient, very friendly couple of guys. A credit to you ! Will be using you again for sure when anything needs replacing 5 stars !

Dear Mr Whitaker,
I just wanted to send a note to express our gratitude for your prompt and highly efficient service in providing us with our new Liebherr fridge-freezer. Thank you for the time you spent on our behalf arranging the deal. I am sure that we shall have many years of good use which will restore our faith in the product range.
May I also complement your delivery men. They were very pleasant and most efficient in fitting the unit in place.
Mr. M. G. Holmes.

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 just wanted to compliment Whitaker's on staff members Andy and Mariusz (Polish Gentleman) who have just fitted our new fridge. They were courteous and very efficient. A real asset to your company. In fact, from the initial telephone enquiry, we have been impressed by your standards and product knowledge .

Just a quick message to offer you some very positive feedback: Our washing machine broke down recently and a friend recommended you to us. Your response, on the phone and by email, was prompt and professional (Richard & Luke), and the delivery and installation (last Friday, to Menston) were punctual and trouble-free. We thought it would be good to let you know, and we would happily recommend you to others.

I would like to say a massive thank you for all the help I received from Richard in my search for a replacement gas hob. When I couldn't get my chosen model Richard was amazing & went out of his way to find an acceptable option & even delivered it himself. The service was exceptional & I would be very happy to recommend Whitakers to anyone. The hob is now fitted & looks great. Thank you again Richard; so nice to have such a helpful & personal service

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.

Fantasic Service, they went out of their way to fit me into their delivery schedules at short notice as I needed a new washing machine urgently. I ordered it at 11.30am and it was delivered and fitted by 4.30pm the same day. Cheerful, Pleasant and efficient fitters. They showed me how to use the new machine in a simple and non techy language and they took away the old machine too.
Couldn't ask for better

I want to thank you for the excellent customer service we received from your store. In recent years we have purchased several products from Whitakers. I want to express my congratulations and say your in store and post-sales service is a real credit to your business. This week alone we have had a washer and a dryer delivered. The delivery men; Robin & Mariusz did your business proud. They both went out of their way to deliver and then revisit our property to install the products. Robin & Mariusz were extremely polite, helpful and efficient. They, as all your staff do happily remind us what great customer service looks like. We will continue to visit your store and to always recommend it most highly to everyone else.
Our warmest thanks again

Purchased a washing machine from you guys last week; very competitive price, free delivery and removal of old machine. Inquired on Monday morning via e-mail followed by prompt response within the hour. Purchased on Monday afternoon; machine installed and running by Friday afternoon, now that's good service. Thank you Whitakers I'll be back for future purchases.
I would like to thank everyone at Whitakers for the efficient and friendly service I received. My new cooker has now been fitted. I am delighted with it especially as it has arrived in time for Christmas.
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas
