There’s always a time when you need to buy major home appliances and when that time comes, you really should know EXACTLY what you’re doing – or the odds are pretty good that you’re going to end up losing out on finding the best product and deal available. Unfortunately not all major brand appliances are created equally, and if you make a mistake with this significant investment you might end up paying for it in a number of different ways for years to come.
Obviously, you don’t want to have to deal with that hassle and that headache. That’s where this appliance buying guide can help. With a few simple tips and tricks, we hope your appliance purchases will fulfill your requirements and price range.
So here’s a few tips to help..
Read A LOT of appliance reviews
The most important thing you can do when looking to purchase any brand appliances is to spend a lot of time reading reviews, researching customer testimonials, and really trying to get as much “dirt” on your next purchase as humanly possible. Don’t restrict yourself to just the particular device you’re interested – read up on the company/brand to see what other people think about their service, quality and you’ll usually form an opinion after reading the first 5-10 reviews you spot.
The Internet has completely and totally changed the way that we go about buying major home appliances and just about everything else. Online reviews is just one area that you’d have to be a little bit crazy not to tap into. You’ll find hundreds of thousands of online reviews out there so make use of them to ensure you’re making the right purchasing decision.
Refuse to make an impulse buy
While it might seem like a good idea to buy the first appliance with “red hot deal” written all over it but sometimes it pays to be cautious.
Sure, sometimes you are going to be able to take advantage of significant savings and deals with this kind of impulse buy approach, but most of the time you are going to be burned – pretty badly – by major home appliances that aren’t worth even the deeply discounted sticker price.
You always need to do your research before pulling the trigger on a purchase of this magnitude. Try to see past the big “sale” sign and read up on the reviews first. We often stock a lot of product on sale but we don’t want anyone to buy just for the sake of it – we want you to be happy with your purchases.
Think about how you plan to use these new appliances
Even if you’d absolutely love to have a full gourmet kitchen with all kinds of commercial grade appliances, the truth of the matter is you need to make sure that you are purchasing major brand appliances that you will actually get full value out of.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense to have a $30000 oven and range-hood in your kitchen if you never cook – even if you think that it makes the room complete! Write down your needs and again use reviews to help you with this process. You’ll see how other people use the appliance and hopefully you’ll spot some pro’s and con’s to add to your list.
Check out the warranty (especially the fine print)
Almost all home appliances manufacturer purchases will come with some type of warranty or another, and you’ll need to make sure that everything is in order before you pull the trigger on a purchase.
Make sure that you go over this document with a fine toothed comb before you sign on the dotted line, you might end up agreeing to a deal that you are not all that crazy about – especially if something ends up failing on your new major home appliances.
It only takes a minute, but you’ll protect yourself for years to come.
