If you are in need of a new appliance but are worried about coming up with the money for it, you might want to consider the purchase of a scratch and dent appliance. This way, you can still get a brand-new appliance. If you are not familiar with this option for the purchase of refrigerators, stoves, washers, and dryers, you will want to read through the following:
The Damage Might Not Even Be Noticeable
Too many people make the mistake of assuming that they will have to live with a large dent that will be very noticeable by everyone. While there are certainly some appliances out there with a dent or scratch in a noticeable location, there are many more that are not that obvious. For example, you might find that there is only a little scratch or dent along the side of the appliance. If that side will be hidden by a wall or cabinets, then no one will be the wiser. Some of these appliances might only have an incredibly small amount of paint scratched off. You could take appliance paint and lightly touch up that area, and it would be unlikely to be so obvious.
You Can Still Get A Warranty
You should find that a lot of the stores that offer scratch and dent products will have appliances that still have valid warranties. As long as the damage is superficial, it should not impact the warranty in a negative way. The paperwork that you will receive from the purchase of your appliance will probably state that you purchased it fully aware of the dent or scratch and that you understand that those damages are not covered by any warranty received with purchase. However, if the appliance were to stop working any time during the length of the warranty period, you should be able to get it repaired or replaced without any trouble.
You Might Have To Haul It Yourself
Depending on where you purchase your appliance, you might find that in order to get a better deal, you have to haul it home on your own. If you do not have a truck, you could always ask a friend or family member to help you. There might even be the option of renting a truck in your area. The savings should be worth it in the end.
All you need to do now is conduct a search for a scratch and dent appliance store near you.
