The services offered by ELECTROLIBRE - Free Options

Reversing the refrigerator doors

If your refrigerator model is not offered with the required door opening; most models allow you to change the direction of the door opening. You can indicate this when ordering online or ask for it when you visit the store. The only condition is that we ask to be notified one week in advance.

Connection and installation of appliances

The delivery team sets up your new appliance at the desired location.

We offer to plug in and install some of our appliances with or without additional costs and under certain conditions.
When ordering online, you will be asked to accept or decline the services we offer and to add accessories relating to the desired service depending on the type of device selected.
Make sure to check if the location meets the requirements for a connection or installation without any unpleasant surprises. 

ELECTROLIBRE distinguishes between connection and installation.

Connection consists of electrically connecting your device to the network. In other words, it is about plugging the power cord into the electrical outlet in the intended location.

Installation requires more work and handling on the part of the team and requires accessories in order to be in compliance with insurance policies.

Some installations are offered free of charge but the necessary accessories remain chargeable. 

Be sure to opt for a new connection kit for each appliance purchased (accessories are available when ordering online). The delivery team does not have parts for this and is not allowed to use existing connection parts when installing an appliance.
