I’ve needed a new dishwasher for yonks, but I kept putting it off and putting it off. I’m a single mom of three girls, and I can’t lift a dishwasher up the stairs myself, so I’ve been dreading the whole process. But the dishes don’t clean themselves, and I was tired of picking up the slack after the cycle ended, only to find the plates are still a mess.
Last week, I noticed a Homebase delivery van outside my neighbour’s flat and started thinking this might be the way to go. I asked him about his delivery, and he said he ordered a washing machine and got it delivered for under £10. Wow!!
So I measured my dishwasher cubby, got online and ordered a new one from Homebase. They had an even better selection online than they do in store, because a lot of the machines were only available on the website. I wanted something with a good brand name and a great energy efficiency rating. The website lists all the machines’ attributes so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
Two days later it was in my house. The men brought it up, and I was able to bribe a neighbour into installing it for me for a cup of tea and some Victoria sponge.
I didn’t have to drive anywhere or try lifting a ridiculously heavy box up my stairs. Brilliant. Next time I need a large appliance, I’ll be looking to Homebase online again. I may even order some patio furniture through them later this summer.
