Looking for scratch and dent appliances for sale? Buying scratch and dent can be a great way to get new appliances for much less than what you would normally have to pay. Sometimes the discounts on these items can be up to 50-60%!
There is nothing structurally or functionally wrong with scratch and dent appliances, they just have received cosmetic damage at some point between the factory and the retail store. Because of this cosmetic damage most people dont want them and neither does the store which is why they give such great discounts on these items in order to get them out of their inventory.
Usually, in addition to the savings on the units themselves, the manufacturer will still include the standard warranty and you can schedule delivery and installation just like if you were buying an undamaged appliance.
Scratches and dents can happen to any machine, so you do not have to limit yourself to any particular brand or type of appliance. Washers, dryers, ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves and even air conditioners and water heaters can all become scratch and dent merchandise.
Even the biggest brands, known for their quality can have this happen. Youre just as likely to get a deal on GE, Maytag, Whirlpool, Samsung or LG as you are on one of the off-brands.
One of the main concerns that I had when shopping for these appliances was that they would look terrible in my home due to the scratches or dents. But this does not have to be the case. The damage could be anywhere on the unit, so the secret is to find units that are damaged in areas that wont be visible once they are installed in your home.
For example, if a stove has a large dent on the left side, just think about where it will go in your home. Chances are that the dent will be covered once you slide the stove into the opening in your kitchen. Think through similar setups when looking at other types of appliances. That huge ugly scratch thats so obvious on the showroom floor may never be seen again once its in your home!
Its easy to do a simple internet search to find retailers nearby that deal in scratch and dent. Some retailers even specialize in scratch and dent and will buy these damaged goods from other retailers. Other times you can find a hidden gem at your local big box retailer like Sears or Home Depot. If you look around, you can find great deals on scratch and dent appliances for sale in your town.
