During these tough economic times, people expect the cheapest deals they can get on their appliance purchases, and that includes appliance delivery too! Often, it’s assumed that with free delivery, there isn’t much of a cost at all.

Think again!

Even with free appliance deliveries, a lot of care is placed into the installation of your purchase. There are so many pros to appliance delivery we’ll be here all day naming them. Like the meticulous care from experts who know the product inside and out. Or how appliance delivery done right won’t scratch your floors and leave wall damage.

At our store, each appliance is thoroughly cleaned and then tested several times, even sometimes before the delivery is made on top of being secured onto our pick-up truck tightly. We want to make sure that what we sell doesn’t have any problems before the sale. And even if something we tested ends up not working as it should, we will still look and swap it out for something else if necessary within the same price range. This is all to save you loads of time, stress, and give you that peace of mind you deserve with your used appliance delivery!

Here’s what to really expect from appliance deliveries in your local area.

How to Make Sure Your Appliance Delivery Goes Well

Here’s something a lot of people overlook when we deliver appliances to their area. First, they need to notify us what time they want to have the delivery made. Some of our customers opt for same-day delivery, but even so, there must be a proper window where we can load everything onto our pick-up truck and make sure that invoices and other details have been sorted out. This takes a lot more time than you might believe. We must follow up with our customers through email and phone and ask even more specific questions about the building they’re in.

Some of our deliveries involve going up several flights of stairs, so we like to ensure that this is all noted for the delivery drivers, so they know what to expect.

So next time you ask yourself why we charge the prices we do for our inventory and delivery, this is one of them. We implore you to be patient during the process.

Pros of Appliance Delivery from Our Team and the Full Costs

To make sure you get the very best out of your appliance delivery, we have a tiered system to make things easier for both of us. We usually charge anywhere from $50 – $100 for appliance delivery and installation and that’s it. We ask you upfront if you live upstairs like in an apartment, and then other times, we do waive the fees out of courtesy. That’s a huge benefit to having a local appliance store handle the delivery.
No worrying about having to carry all that weight yourself or risk destroying your purchase trying to get it up the stairs and into your home.

It’s not just the appliance itself you’re receiving. There are many overhead costs involved to make sure that we’re selling the best products we can, which results in even more savings due to our expertise. We don’t always get it right but try our best to learn from past mistakes and move forward.

Our price range for used appliances is anywhere from $200-$500 depending on the brand, condition, and other factors. We’ve had customers come in before and ask why we don’t sell our stuff for say $50-$100 apiece. The answer is simple. There’s so much labor that goes into even cleaning the appliances for starters and all the pressure washing that’s done before hand.

Then we must see if the appliance even works, so we test them out several times for quality control. If something’s not working, then we have to take even more time to find out the serial number of the appliance we’re fixing and then order the replacement appliance part, which can take several days to arrive. Yes, this is another great perk to having a used appliance store in your local area take care of the delivery and testing. Imagine having to do all this yourself. It would take so many hours of your day, your head would spin!

And this is all before we even think about putting any price tags on it and then spending even more money promoting our business online. There’s even more research involved with finding out how much that appliance would have cost originally and what retailers like Home Depot and Lowe’s are selling them for so we can figure out the most reasonable deal we can pass onto our customers.

With all this time and labor involved, there are even more costs, especially for the building itself we operate from and making sure that our monthly bills and rent have been paid. No building, no business internet, no appliance store and no awesome savings you can benefit from either. It’s really that straightforward. But that’s enough of that tangent, let’s continue to discuss the true expectations of your used home appliance delivery.

Appliances Can Weigh a Ton: We Do All the Heavy Lifting for You!

Remember that you’re buying products that weigh on average between 100-200 pounds, sometimes even more! It takes a lot of muscle to get everything to your destination, ESPECIALLY if you live in an apartment or high-rise building. Often, we need to have more than one person just to transport your order and then make sure that nothing gets damaged along the way.

Because of this, the delivery can take anywhere from 1-2 hours and then we have to make sure we have brought the proper cables and hoses to connect everything. Sometimes the water pumps at the residences we go to aren’t working, so we have to replace those as well. You can now see where this is going. Heavy appliances plus various parts to install correctly and then the time it takes to get to your place of residence adds up. Delivery drivers and helpers need to be paid as well.
It’s like a second job on top of everything else our team works on.

Used Appliance Haul Away Services Are Also Included In Your Appliance Delivery

Lastly, after your new or used appliance is installed, we haul away the old one and don’t charge any additional fees when you buy a replacement appliance from us. However, as a standalone service, rates start at $35 for smaller jobs. Even so, this part also can be time and labor intensive depending on what type of building you reside in. It’s not practical for the average person to do by themselves. That’s the whole point of buying from a used appliance store in the first place. There are professionals available who take care of these things for you. It’s another factor we consider when putting prices on our inventory. We consider everything that goes into providing the best service possible.

Conclusion

Used appliance delivery has many moving parts and isn’t the easiest job either. From the initial purchase to the final delivery and haul away, we are with you every step. While we try to provide the best deals we can, we also have it, so these costs are already part of the sticker price you pay. Sometimes, depending on distance, we even provide free delivery. But that’s because we’re able to go through the process and do a lot for you to be able to offer a washer or dryer at that price point.

This is what you should expect when paying for used appliance delivery. Come to our store and check out the variety of washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, and more.
