    Having a dishwasher delivered tomorrow.

    It turns out itís not likely to be fitted ie be in use within 30 days of delivery. Iíve been told it will be boxed so can go under the stairs but am worried it might have been delivered damaged or DOA.

    Whatís the best way to protect the recipients against this and all the potential hassle it could cause X weeks down the line?

    If nothing else, open the box and have a good look. You should be able to spot any damage before anyone attempts to install it.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    Who ever signs the delivery note should also add a note to state signing for delivery only, item unexamined.

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.

  • Then it should be. It's not some accident. It's deliberate grappling

  • Penalty yes but time someone was sent off for these wrestling moves #WorldCup
