If you need to replace one or more of your home appliances, then you may be thinking of trying to save yourself some upfront money and going with used appliances. They are easy enough to find, as you can find ads for used appliances online, on local billboards, and in the local papers. However, you should consider the following benefits of going with brand new appliances over purchasing used ones from a private party:
Used ones can have something wrong with them: If you purchase a used appliance from a private party then they may not be truthful about why they are getting rid of it. They may tell you it is because they ended up wanting a different model or something else, but the truth may be that it has been starting to give them issues. This means that you will end up with another problem appliance when you wanted to replace your own. If you go with a refurbished or brand new one, the chances are it will come with a warranty, so if you ever need washer repair or other services, you know you can count on it to run well or be covered.
Used ones won't last as long: Even if you purchase a used appliance that is in excellent condition, you can almost count on it not lasting you as long as a new one would, since it has already had wear and tear put on it from its previous owner. You also don't know if they are being 100% truthful with you about the true number of hours of use it has had put on it.
Used ones can bring pests into your home: When you bring used furniture, electronic devices like stereos, or appliances into your home, there is always the chance that they harbor pests that will come out in your home and can start an infestation. One example of a type of pest that you can bring in your home in this manner would be cockroaches. Since these pests can reproduce quickly and in great numbers, it wouldn't take long for you to find that bringing that appliance into your home has brought you some bad pest control issues that you will then need to deal with.
Now that you have a better understanding of why it may be a better choice for you to purchase new or refurbished appliances, the chances are better of you deciding to do so. If you have a problem with your current appliance, then the best thing to do may be to have it repaired. You already know about your own appliance and its history, so having it repaired when it's possible may end up saving you money and troubles.Share
