Appliance Warranties and What you need to know!
You are in the market for a new appliance. Your options are brand new or used / refurbished. You know there is going to be some type of warranty with a brand new appliance but what is it and what, if any, type of warranty comes with used appliances?
New Appliance Warranty
If you purchase any brand new appliance it comes with a manufacturer warranty. The length of this warranty is typically as little as 3 months and up to one year. If your appliance breaks down within the time frame of the warranty, you would be covered for full repair at no charge. This is very helpful in today’s appliance market where many machines have computer components which are very costly to replace. Once the term of the warranty is up, however, you are responsible for repairs or extending the warranty at your expense.
Refurbished Appliance Warranty
You may be hesitant to purchase a refurbished appliance, but you may be surprised to know that they come with warranties as well. If you purchase a used appliance from a reputable business, you will be getting an appliance that has been checked and already repaired if necessary. In addition to that, it comes with the remainder of the manufacturer warranty as well as a 30 day guarantee and a 23 month warranty. This is above and beyond the typical manufacturer warranty. When you purchase refurbished you are getting a quality appliance with a longer warranty than if you purchased a new appliance.
When you are in the market for an appliance, be sure to consider new and refurbished options and look at the warranties being offered, you may be surprised that the better deal lies with the refurbished appliance.
