Warranty Notes See written warranty for full details

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Caused over $15000 worth of damage in my home


I am beyond frustrated. Wednesday afternoon I came home to a collapsed garage ceiling and water damage to my carpets crown molding and base boards and I laundry room filled with water. The door to my washing machine had come open during a cycle. The machine would not power off until I unplugged it due to panicking. Ive had to call a water restoration company out to dry the floors walls and carpets. My childrens christmas has been ruined
