Now that you have you bought your desired electrical appliances and saved some money, its time to think about the domestic appliance services.
Once you buy the product, you don’t usually spare a thought about maintaining the appliance, till your air conditioner breaks down in the middle of summer or your washing machine stops mid-cycle!
Usually the company product service warranty, which normally hovers between 1 to 5 years, covers the maintenance cost within that time period, for free. Hence in order to save money, you should buy a product from a trusted brand which offers such all-round domestic appliance service.
Many brands urge you to buy extended warranty, in such a case you must keep in mind the durability and reliability of your electrical appliance- whether it will stand up to the next few years of constant use. When it comes to a feature-rich appliance, servicing it yourself or by a local handyman may not be sufficient and you may need to pay for a qualified technician. In this case, extended coverage may be a good idea, as long as these types of repairs are included in the warranty.
Registering your newly bought appliance will also save you money as it will ensure that you’ll be able to repair it under warranty should you encounter a problem during that period.
If you run out of warranty, instead of giving more money to the company renewal, you can always send for the local domestic appliance services, especially if you want to save money, since their service fees will be a tad cheaper and you can always haggle over the prices with them.
Most importantly, don’t fork down cash immediately for any part replacement, even if they tell you. Research it for yourself, and buy the part online to save your money.
Lastly before calling in the experts for any little problem, read up the service manual. You will notice that DIY solutions are often given for minor hiccoughs, and it’s something a layman can easily do!
Despite the spurt of rising prices, the sales of domestic appliances, are spiraling upwards, as they stand as a substitute for manual labour and are an absolute necessity in these fast paced times where they function to make our lives better, easier and effortless… all at the touch of a button!
Many products get cheaper over time as they’re replaced by newer models. So look out for cheaper prices as and when you see them, rather than waiting for seasonal sales.
