There you are dumping in a load of clothes to your washer just like you have for every week for the last couple of years when all of sudden your machine starts lurching and violently shaking. It fills up with water but the water doesn’t drain. Those clothes are dead in the water. Sound familiar? If your washer has gone up on your then you’ve got to replace it. You might be inclined to bypass the major appliance stores in favor of heading over to Craigslist to see what bargain you can find. Before taking the plunge, consider the risks.
Most appliances that you would buy off of Craigslist or any other type of classified site will be sold to you “as is.” In other words, you could go through all the trouble of renting a truck, driving over to pick up the fridge, bring it home and plug it in only to find it doesn’t work as promised. What can you do then? Pretty much nothing. On the other hand, if you buy from a store you can get a warranty. There should also be some kind of return policy if the machine doesn’t perform to your liking.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about going the Craigslist route. You just want to be on the lookout for models that are newer. Over at the big appliance stores like Best Buy, Lowes or Home Depot you might find a good selection of appliances to choose from. Instead of going for the sparkly, boxed version, find out about buying a floor model. You can see for yourself what kind of shape it is in. If there are a few dings or scratches that you’re not bothered by then you could probably get the price knocked down even further.
Now you have to deal with getting rid of your old appliance. That can be a hassle-free experience when you commission Junk King East Houston to handle the job. They’ll be providing you with a team of professional movers and the right size truck to pack up all your junk.
When Junk King East Houston takes away your trash you’ll be guaranteed that they’ll handle it the right way. That means dropping it off at a recycling center or turning it over to a charity that fixes up furniture to resell it. All of that good work will be accomplished without you breaking a sweat or giving up your valuable time. If you’re just getting rid of a single big appliance you can probably have it pulled out by Junk King in the morning and have your new item delivered in the afternoon without skipping a beat.
