If your tiling a kitchen floor, would you remove the white goods...... washing machine, fridge freezer, oven....etc ..

Nope. Not anymore.
Used to do. Learned that if I ask in advance, they'll get everything out.
And if I take them out they risk damage and leaks.
I'd rather just tile.

I always ask customer to remove them, unless they are to old to.
more often then not I'd turn up to find they have not been removed

Every job different, some no chance... Others just help em out if they need it.. Think I've mentioned before about a small scratch on a stainless worktop end panel taking a range oven out, customer made me buy him a new one, so when it came to putting it back in asked him come out of work to shift it, huffing and puffing he tried to pick it up with the door and it shattered all over the floor... Karma restored!!

Pulled the handle of an oven once getting it out...

Difficult to do as well if you work on your own, some of them washing machine are very heavy...

Don't tell me you'd see a little old lady without a washing machine or starve to death cuz you didn't push her oven back in :)
Same little old lady would call me back if there's a problem with the decade's old crusty washer on the water inlet or a slight scratch on the cooker that had been there for years.

Let her starve I say!
