When you buy a new appliance, you’re usually able to get free or cheap haul-away of the old appliance when the service technician installs the new stove and oven.
However, if you’re removing units that are built-in and specially fitted, you likely need a cabinet installer or carpenter to take out the range and old oven, then repair the cabinets and wall so that the new units will fit. An appliance tech or handyman is usually not able to do this and make it look professional.
If the cabinets and drywall where the old oven and range were are bad enough after removing them, you may even need to hire a general contractor to get the job done right.
If this looks to be the case for you, call around to cabinet companies and ask if they would be willing to do some drywall patching and painting. While it’s not their expertise, some cabinetry professionals also have additional experience.
All this being said, you may still be able to have the old stove and oven removed by the guys who can install the new oven from the store you buy them from. Make sure you ask if this service is available before you purchase the new appliances.
You definitely don’t want to wait until the delivery and installation guy shows up with your new stove and oven and not be able to have them installed because you assumed he would remove the old ones.
