Energy efficient replacement goods
Energy efficient white goods
When we have to replace fridges, freezers and washing machines in the UK, we generally provide customers with ones that have an energy efficiency rating of at least ‘A’. The exception is tumble driers/washer dryers, as 99% are already rated ‘A’ rated or better. Our preferred supplier delivers the replacement item, will install it, and removes the old appliance for recycling.
Green laptop parts
We replace nearly 20% of the laptops we assess simply because replacement parts aren’t available. As part of our new inspection process, we now collect ‘non-memory’ related parts from laptops and use this stock of parts in subsequent repairs. This brings down costs and leads to a much faster turnaround for their repair. And of course, there’s much less waste generated, so it’s not only great for customers, but the environment too.
