Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

LG Dryer

Mrs Holt 3/22/2021

We bought a new LG washer and dryer a couple years ago. So glad we got the extended warranty as we have had to use it twice already. One for washer as it would not balance and recently for the dryer that was making a horrid screeching noise. Appliances just do not last long and cost 3x what they used to. I am not saying I wouldnt recommend LG as we have had other appliance brands with issues also hence buying extended warranty. Companies seriously need to make appliances to last for the price they charge.

Love my LG

Prariedog67 12/11/2020

Its quiet. Its sleek. It sings a little song when its done. For the price this has turned to be a terrific investment alone with its marching washing machine.
