Im new to the area so I have yet to find various local businesses who would might offer this service.

I need someone who can put on a cupboard door on an integrated fridge (it is already electrically installed) and remove and legally dispose of the old fridge.

Anyone know of a suitable handyman? All the ones I've found so far (mainly seem to be business ones) won't remove appliances as their men rock up on scooters etc.

Southwark Council have a free removal service and they tell you what day they are coming.

Whenever i leave anything out for the council to collect it is normally gone before they get there-especially anthing with scrap value!

nonetheless Jan is right get the council to collect for free you can book it on line

are there any handymen who'll carry the appliance down the stairs, actually?
southwark told us they'll only collect it from outside the property, and getting a fridge down two flights of stairs is a bit beyond us..
