    i don,t think our liabilty insurance will cover us, by the book the customer would have to arrange to have it disconnected. Having said that most electric cookers have enough cable for us to move then sufficiently to do the job.

    Agree with above.
    If cable long enough then fair play i'll fit under it.
    If not, then no chance....
    And even less chance of disconnecting it (never) ;)

    I will only move them if they are plugged in, not if they are wired in to the wall?

    Cannot vote - the options we use are not there...

    Our fitters will move a cooker (Gas or Electric) but NEVER disconnect

    ...so if the cable or pipe allows we will if not we wont

    I agree with you on this,how they change their personality very quickly when you do something extra to "the norm" and gets broken by accident,you then say never again!...

    I have to say I never touch them firstly I'm not a certified electrician and can not and nor do I possess the tools or testing equipment to perform an electrical safety test after its reconnected. Also your insurance will say its not in your job description to move disconnect or even touch such appliances and wriggle out of paying. I use to but for some strange reason they always seem to break once I left the property never mind the fact it was falling to pieces before I touched it.

    Had a customer go ape at me, slamming the door in my face because i didn't wash my hands after going to the toilet xD and then the washing machine that i moved was 'broken'. Got to try to spot the crazy ones before you do anything with their stuff i'd say
