NRLA launches new commercial partnership with leading electricals retailer AO

Today the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA), announces that it has agreed a new commercial partnership with leading online electricals retailer, AO.

This new partnership means that AO is now a supplier of a range of Major Domestic Appliances (MDA), including fridge-freezers, dishwashers, ovens, hobs and washing machines, to the NRLA’s membership.

Following the launch, NRLA members will be able to access this service using a dedicated telephone line which is open during AO’s office opening hours.

This service will be offered to NRLA members through a dedicated Account Manager at AO, who will ensure they can access selected appliances for their rental properties at highly competitive, trade member rates.

With over 1.5 million square feet of warehousing and completing premier installations across the UK every week, AO can minimise supply chain disruption, by holding over three months’ worth of stock at any time, meaning the products are always available for next day delivery and installation, offering a fantastic service for members.

Anthony Sant, MD of AO Business, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome the NRLA to our growing B2B partnerships. Our aim with this national partnership is to bring AO’s exceptional customer service to the NRLA’s network, which will also include guaranteed market-leading appliance supply and installation.  With over 20 years’ experience as an electricals retailer and strong relationships with global manufacturers, AO Business is able to offer NRLA members a unique, competitive proposition.”

Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said:

“We are delighted to partner with AO, which will provide our members with a great range of modern domestic appliances at fantastic rates.

“NRLA members will benefit from AO’s brilliant customer service as well as their market leading supply and installation – meaning appliances can be sourced and installed quickly, easily and cheaply.
