Birmingham Refrigeration Repair gave their cautions about purchasing extended service plans for common household appliance products during the holiday season, stemming from recent reports that expensive warranty policies are beginning to become obsolete.
KGO-TV, a San Francisco ABC affiliate, recently ran an investigative local report on the warranty policies of stores selling appliances in their local area, and came to the conclusion that the stores often earn more profit from the warranty policies than they do from the sale of the product. The report cited that warranty policy costs can increase expenses of a purchase by 30 percent.
Birmingham Refrigeration Repair’s list of ways to ensure that customers take the initiative to carefully look over their warranty policies before making purchases includes reading the list of potential technical problems carefully, as many of the common problems involved with an appliance either are not covered by the warranty or require an advanced policy to be covered by the warranty. Additionally, they should also be careful to note exactly how long the warranty lasts and if the problems covered by the warranty are likely to occur within that timeframe. They also recommend that consumers contact their local repair technicians such as refrigeration, air conditioning, electrical, and heating repair Birmingham professionals to make sure they work on the specific appliance looking to be purchased in case that warranty doesn’t cover the issue or expires. BRR especially noted that many companies’ warranty policies only cover defects with the appliance itself, and these problems are not supposed to occur within a short period of time after the appliance is purchased.
Birmingham Refrigeration Repair today issued their list of ways to keep customers alert to potential inflated warranty costs and how they can be avoided through careful vigilance when buying a product.
