Factory Second Fridges – Upgrade Without the Massive Price Tag

Today, more than ever, it pays to be smart with purchasing everyday products, including big-ticket items or appliances. These cost a lot, so if you need a new household appliance, it’s a practical step to check if there are any great deals available.

While shopping for a new fridge, for example, consider factory second fridges, too. With a factory second fridge, you can purchase a much larger, more energy-efficient refrigerator with all the bells and whistles, but without the massive price tag.

The basics of factory seconds

Appliances labelled as factory seconds are sold at super low prices. But even when some people find them tempting enough to buy, others also doubt their quality. However, you should give factory seconds due consideration and credit because they’re not defective or inferior.

In fact, a factory second fridge (or any other appliance so classified) will be in perfect working order – just like a unit being sold as brand new. However, it is not being sold at a lower price, and this can be because of any of these reasons:

  • It has minor scratches or dents, which may have been because of poor handling or damage during shipping. These cosmetic flaws do not affect the functionality of the appliance and are often quite minimal
  • It could have been a floor sample or ex-display model, so it has been taken out of its original packaging and put on display
  • Its original packaging is damaged or missing. Again, this doesn’t have any effect on the quality or functionality of the unit
  • It could be an outdated model or overstock. This means that the unit is already out of production and is one of the last remaining pieces of a previous model

So, factory seconds are functionally similar to units sold as new. If you purchase a factory second fridge, it’ll be like buying a brand new fridge with a big discount.

Purchasing a factory second fridge

If you’re convinced about buying a factory second fridge, you probably know that top labels like Electrolux and Kelvinator can require and investment of  thousands of dollars if you buy brand new.

With factory seconds, you’ll  get great discounts even on popular brands plus the following perks:

  • Manufacturer’s warranty: Most factory seconds stores provide this warranty and some offer extended warranties.
  • Product range: If you want a double door fridge with an ice maker or even a side-by-side fridge, you’re sure to find a factory second with these features
  • Delivery: A lot of stores charge very affordable delivery rates.
  • Security: Transacting with a reputable factory seconds store is the same as when you purchase from a regular appliance store. In fact, some stores offer both brand new appliances and factory seconds.

So, if you’re looking to buy a new fridge, give factory seconds a go and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.  and don’t forget that Qld Appliance Spares & Repairs in Brisbane are the authorised Electrolux supplier for factory seconds.  We can access almost any model and we can deliver and instal with minimum fuss.
