Appliance installation services are now offered by many of the Big Box and Chain stores. It has become part of the one-stop shopping experience that also has them asking if you would like to buy additional insurance.
In other words; they would like for you to spend all your money at their store.
This approach for you seems an easy solution especially if you are purchasing appliances that are not ‘plug and play’.
But when you opt in to these services you are paying the store you purchased the appliance from and then paying a broker who is often hundreds of kilometres away to assign the job of installing your new investment. So even before “their team” comes to your house about 40% of the money you paid for the installation has gone to arranging for the installation and nothing to do with installing your appliance.
The remaining money is then paid to a contractor. Those contractors can be between jobs, just finished school and starting out, perhaps uninsured and possibly not likely to be there for you in the future.
This Big Box corporate experience can cause you to pay more and get less; beginning with you believing the store ‘has your back’ when in fact it is a contracted service.
Simply put, if your appliance stops working and you go back to the Big Box Store you purchased from, they in turn go back to their middle-man contractor and then the request may, or may not, get back to the original installer. And if something goes wrong with the installation that results in an insurance claim the situation could become wildly complicated, frustrating and expensive for you.
The solution to avoiding these challenges is simple; contact a local specialist like ourselves.
