How long are the delivery times?
Our standard kitchens are delivered within 1-2 weeks (kitchenettes 5 weeks) to addresses in Germany and Austria. Kitchens are delivered to all other countries, including Switzerland, within 2-3 weeks. Tailor-made, oversized and project kitchens are always built to specific instructions. This affects the delivery times, but usually these custom kitchens are delivered within 6-8 weeks at the latest. Please discuss the exact time frame with the Limatec team. Please note that a deposit must be paid for all custom-made and project kitchens.
What kind of packaging is used?
All finished mini kitchens are delivered in one cardboard container, which is reinforced with tightly fitting polystyrene at the sides and bottom. The packaging is a special design for our kitchens and has been tested on several occasions.
How are the kitchens delivered?
All kitchens are delivered to the kerbside of the delivery address free of charge. You must notify us when you order if the kitchen needs to be carried any further than this. Any transport beyond the kerbside is subject to a charge. You must also notify us when you order if the kitchen cannot be moved fully assembled because dismantling may invalidate the warranty.
The kitchen has been delivered, but has been damaged in transit. What now?
If the kitchen has been damaged despite its packaging, please leave a written note with the driver straight away and send us an email with pictures of the damage.
How is the kitchen set up?
We are unable to offer an assembly service because the kitchen is delivered by haulier. Our metal kitchens are delivered fully assembled and ready-to-use. Only the oven and the dishwasher are never installed by us because it would make the kitchen too heavy to move.
Only the Junior Kitchen and the Studioline kit are delivered for home assembly.
User manual/assembly instructions
A user manual is included with every kitchen, explaining how to connect it. Full instructions are also included for any component that still needs to be installed (e.g. dishwasher).
The instructions/user manual are also available on our website to refer to if you are unable to find your copy.
An electrical appliance is broken. What now?
We will repair the appliance during the 2-year warranty period. Please contact us to make arrangements. The warranty does not cover any damage caused by you or through gross negligence. Our customer service maintains a stock of spare parts and components for our kitchens. We are happy to repair any kitchen after expiry of the warranty. However, this service is subject to a charge.
A part of the metal cupboards is broken. Where can I order spare parts?
We supply all spare parts free of charge during the 2-year warranty period. After that we will supply them for a charge.
