Scratch and Dent Appliances

If you’re looking for Kitchen Appliance Packages and you’re on a tight budget, here are some ideas to consider.

Most of the Scratch and Dent Appliances can be found at stores that call themselves “Outlets” or “Warehouse Stores”.  Many of your major brand name appliances have their own S&D stores.  They are sometimes called Clearance Stores and they are away from the regular store.



Of course you can look at some of the “used” shops in your area, and you might meet your need just fine there.  Sometimes the Pawn shops in your town will buy up good used appliance and you may find that some of them will be damaged with a scratch or dent. Another place to look is in the phonebook for companies that have “distributor” as part of their name.  We’ve seen some in our area that have damaged appliances for sale.

Most people can dab a little paint and do a little sanding, which should be sufficient for the usual damage that you’ll find. If you’re comfortable with that, this is good for you because you will be able to fix small damages and still get large discounts for the units.  You can usually find a real good deal at these stores and there is usually nothing wrong with the mechanical part of the appliance.  You normally find just the outside damaged and that will only be a little bit.  Usually the scratch is only in the paint and not down into the metal or plastic.  When it is extra deep, you might be able to get some “auto body” filler and spread it thin over the scratch.  Then using a block with some “wet” sandpaper, “block sand” the area until it is super smooth and then re-paint it to make it look like new.  The easy ones will just take a little dab of enamel paint from an appliance store and you won’t even have to sand them or anything.

We’re just talking about Scratch and Dent Appliances now so don’t forget there are mechanical parts below or inside that outer shell.  You need to look the outside all over to find the places that you can fix.  After you’ve done that don’t forget the other things that you should check also.

That’s right the moving parts.  The mechanical parts.  The things that make it work.  Most all of these sales are “AS IS” “NO RETURN” policies that will leave you with useless appliance if you can’t fix it.

So make sure you check the following:

Are all of the components included or installed?  This means that you need to do your homework before you go to know what is normally included.  Make sure you have a salesperson or manager with you and ask them where all the parts, adapters and connections are for the unit.

If you don’t have a truck or trailer make sure you negotiate the delivery of the unit into the price.  Most of the appliances that you want are going to be big and heavy and will sometimes take not only a truck but a lift gate on the back of the truck as well as a professional cart or dolly to move the unit from the driveway to your steps, up your steps to the door then through the house and in some cases down another set of steps to the basement to where you want the washer or drier or freezer or disposal unit.  Even if you have to pay an extra $50.00 it may be cheaper than the damage it could cause your own body.


Finding places to go to look at Scratch and Dent Appliances is a good job for a rainy Saturday.  You’ll get a feel for price and condition and who you feel comfortable dealing with.  After you get a list of 6 or 8 places you find acceptable, check around with friends and family and even other appliance stores.  Ask about the companies on the list and see if they are reputable.  After you get your list down to 3 or 4 that you can deal with go in and ask for the best price.  Remember these companies usually buy in bulk, at least small quantities and that means that they have a good margin to work with.  Always ask if they will let the appliance go out the door for $XX.xx, and make it about 2/3′s the asking price.  It’s always good to ask.

Adequate Denver Appliance and Electronic Repair

refrigerator repair in Denver, though uncommon, needs to be done by few when they give out. However, who do you call when this happens? It might not be a daily occurrence for you, but there are a plethora of companies available to your disposal. The main aspect is that you just need to know who you should and should not hire for your appliance repair in Denver.

 Many companies will make promises that they simply will not be able to keep. This means that you need to find the company that will keep the promise of being able to fix your refrigerator. So how can you do this? Research will be the best option for you. Unlike so many before you, people tend to just hire any company because they think the services are all going to be the same. Some companies give you short-term repair, which will not be satisfactory – especially if you do want to keep you refrigerator for longer periods of time. So what do you do?

Instead of just giving it too much thought, you will want to ensure that you look up customer reviews on services of different companies in your town. You will be surprised to find out who will be able to assist you and who will not be able to assist you. The company that you though could give you the best services could be the company with the worse reviews of all the companies. Just look around and see who is there to assist.

Choosing an Appliance Repair Company You Can Trust

appliance repair in aurora Co. may be a difficult thing for many people to find in Denver, but with the right tools, you can find the best company for your appliance repair in Denver. When you begin your search for a repairman, you need to choose someone you know will do the job for you the way you need it done. So what does this entail? Excellent customer service is on the top of the list.

Ensuring that you are being treated as a valued customer will give you the most excellent services available because it means the company strives for customer satisfaction. Talk with the company you want to hire to see how good their customer service is and how friendly they come across. If they seem friendly and considerate, answering all of your questions and concerns, they are a company that you want to take into serious consideration for hire.


If they seem too short-worded, almost cold, you might want to rethink about hiring the company. When companies come across unfriendly, it will not be beneficial for you in the long term. If their repairs fail within a short amount of time of you hiring them, they might not be generous enough to fix it for a reduced fee like other, friendlier companies would be willing to do for you. Customer satisfaction should be the utmost priority for the company you choose for your appliance repair; otherwise you will be greatly disappointed with the services provided to you.
