Installation of an integrated Fridge

Looking for a company in Zurich or nearby that does integrated fridge installations. We have no idea how to look. It would involve cutting the top shelf by a little, but otherwise it's a straightforward installation.

Re: Installation of an integrated Fridge

I am selling a fridge, which is the standard Swiss norm, 55 cm wide. The installation involved affixing it with 4 screws to the cabinet base at the bottom and the underside of the upper shelf. Took a few minutes.

Not sure how you will secure the fridge if you need to cut the top shelf. Might not be so straightforward.

Re: Installation of an integrated Fridge

We were told that if we pay a company double the price of the fridge, they would install it for us with the included modifications. Now we just need to find a company.

Someone PM'ed me one, was hoping for another so we can make sure at least one of them can do it in a timely manner.

The kitchen remodeller in town doesn't have the capacity to do a job this small and would apparently charge just double the cost of the fridge.

Re: Installation of an integrated Fridge

I've fitted one at home and it's not a technical job, just a steady procedure with lots of screws and brackets. Not so say do it yourself, just that you won't need an engineer or experienced craftsman.

It should be a 1-2 hour job at most, so even paying someone CHF 100 an hour means it shouldn't cost much, paying the same price as the fridge itself seems a lot. Try searching for a good local worker or fitter and see if they want some cash for a quick job.
