Actually, people just about everywhere need appliance removal at some time in their adult lives. Maybe not so much if you’re a renter, but for homeowners, property managers, and business owners, it can be a challenge.
The fact is that getting rid of old appliances yourself once they’ve stopped working is never easy. When your aging dishwasher has cleaned its last plate, that’s an unfortunate motivation for appliance shopping.
But sometimes there are good reasons for getting new appliances and for old appliance removal.
Talking to Your Refrigerator Through Your Phone
Buying new appliances today can not only add value to your home, but new appliances can keep you connected to your home.
This is because more and more appliances are now being designed and manufactured as “smart” devices and are designed to be part of what is known as the “Internet of Things”, or IoT.
IoT is still somewhat unfamiliar to many people so a brief definition may be in order here. According to an entry in Wikipedia,
“The Internet of Things describes the network of physical objects—“things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet.”
What this means essentially is that with certain devices, appliances, or features, our homes can be “wired” to the Internet and, as a result, can be accessed through mobile devices remotely.
Along with the “smart” technology that is becoming more commonplace in appliances, the enhanced convenience and efficiency that comes with the newer generation of appliances also makes them a great investment.
And replacing your old, worn-out appliances before they stop working is always a good strategy.
But getting rid of your old appliances, however, can sometimes be a problem.
Appliance Shopping: When to Pull the Trigger on a Big Purchase
Can you get a great deal on new appliances any time of year, or are there certain times that are better than others for purchasing that new smart dishwasher?
Well, according to experts, there are.
It turns out that early fall through the Holidays is probably the best time to make new appliance purchases. In fact, one of the mistakes many homeowners tend to make is waiting until their current appliance is functioning poorly or has stopped working altogether. Finding a deal in, say, the middle of June, is going to be difficult when it comes to appliances.
So, what are the best times of the year to get that new refrigerator or range?
There are a few periods that are better and a few different reasons for that according to an article from Digital Trends,
“Most people know they can get deals on just about anything on shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But you can save some cash on other holidays throughout the year as well. Appliance manufacturers and retailers often offer sales on the three-day-weekend holidays and others such as:
- Presidents Day
- Memorial Day
- Labor Day
- Fourth of July
- New Year’s
If you buy during a holiday sale, you can spend as little as half of what you’d pay if you bought at regular prices.”
There are also certain months of the year when appliance makers release new models or when holiday shopping deals tend to start rolling in.
Typically, September, October, November, and December are good months for shopping deals on most appliances. In large part, this is because many retailers are more willing to give deals on the older models. Refrigerators are a bit different in that manufacturers of refrigerators primarily release their new models in the spring, so that’s often a good time to buy a unit from the previous year.
Which is another great time to purchase that new washer and dryer, or that double oven upgrade for your kitchen: right before the release of a new model.
The Digital Trends article goes on to note that,
“Just like with many other electronics, the price of a new model is at its highest when the manufacturer first releases a new product. You can get a heck of a better bargain if you wait a while and make your purchase after the price has a chance to go down.”
Perhaps the biggest downside to buying new appliances, however, is that not all appliance dealers will take your old appliance. Then you need to get rid of it yourself.
Properly disposing of your old appliances involves a few options.
If your appliance is still in a working and usable condition, you have the options of selling it, giving it to a friend or a family member, or perhaps donating it to a local charity or other organization that accepts those types of donations.
In other words, if your old appliance works and is in good shape, then it may be worthwhile to try selling it. Additionally, if it’s clean and usable, donating to a not-for-profit organization is often a great way to give a second life.
However, even with all these options, unless someone comes out and picks it up for you, you’ll still have to move it out of your home and then load it and remove it yourself. This is why it’s also a good option to call Junk King South San Francisco for your appliance removal needs.
Junk King South San Francisco and Appliance Removal
If you live in the South San Francisco area you are probably aware that there are not many places to dispose of household junk of any kind, let alone a hulking refrigerator or washing machine.
And these things are incredibly bulky, awkward to carry, and incredibly heavy.
In fact, typical large-capacity, front-load washers can weigh up to 230 pounds, while the medium-capacity, front-load machines average 180 pounds, and the smaller capacity front-loaders are closer to 150 pounds.
And let’s not forget refrigerators!
It’s been noted that the most common refrigerators range from 200 to 450 pounds, with most machines weighing in at just under 300 pounds. Maybe Dwayne Johnson can do his own appliance removal, but it’s beyond most of the rest of us mortals!
Also, even if you do manage to remove your appliance from your home and onto a truck, don’t bother trying to dump it at your local landfill.
According to Earth911.com, as of 2017 at least 22 states have banned appliances from being placed in landfills. These states include California, along with Florida, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The good news is that you don’t have to decipher the logistics of properly disposing of that old, unwanted appliance.
