4 reasons to choose factory seconds white goods

Are you in the market for a new washing machine or fridge in Brisbane on a budget? Perhaps you’re a flood victim and didn’t have your previous appliance insured, or maybe you’re a student looking for a cheap installation. Purchasing a factory second-hand appliance may be the way to go. These appliances aren’t second-hand in the usual sense, but instead have minor dents or scratches that prevent them from looking brand new.

At our store, we have a wide range of factory seconds fridges for sale Brisbane residents can trust. There are several reasons why you should consider factory seconds white goods In this blog, we outline four of these reasons.

Browse a larger range

When you purchase factory seconds, you get to choose from a larger range of brands and models when compared to what’s on offer in mainstream retail stores. This is because stores that sell factory seconds aren’t concerned with selling only the latest makes and models, but also those from previous years that have minor defects and never made it out of the factory. Browsing from a larger range means it becomes easier to find the right second-hand appliance to suit your needs and requirements.

Environmentally friendly

Buying factory second white goods allows you to actively reduce your impact on the environment. Without purchase, these goods are likely to end up in a landfill somewhere, thereby contributing to land waste and preventing the materials from being used in the production of another model.

What are your options for fridges in Brisbane?

When you need to replace a household appliance like your fridge it can be a time-consuming job figuring out the best brand to select and what sort of configuration will suit.  These days it’s not as simple as just choosing the same whitegoods model you purchased 10 years ago as they don’t always have the same manufacturing happening.  Refrigerator quality and features can change a lot over time.  Whether you are upgrading or replacing your fridge there are certainly a lot of options to consider when looking at fridges for sale in Brisbane.

You could jump on Gumtree and hunt down a bargain seconds hand fridge in Brisbane.  In this case look for something local as delivery and installation might be problematic unless you own or know someone with a suitable truck or ute for transporting your fridge. And you will need someone to lift the fridge and unload it too! They are one of the most heavy and difficult to move appliances to own.    Keep in mind buying a fridge for sale on Gumtree isn’t likely to come with any kind of manufacturers warranty.  So while you might be lucky and find a great deal there’s also the risk the great deal won’t be so great.  But I guess that’s why the price might be a lot less than a new fridge.

And that leads us to another option – buying a new fridge.  You’ll need to invest a decent amount of your savings into purchasing this new fridge.  If you time it right you can buying during sale times like the end of financial year of end of year near Christmas.  In this case you are going to be limited (or not) by your budget – fridges for sale can get quite expensive, especially the latest models with all the new smart digital features.  But, if you are here reading this on a factory seconds website then it’s more likely you are looking for a much smarter option.  And that is the fridge seconds option sometimes called scratch and dent.

The good news with this option is that you pay less for the same model you might have been considering new and you also get to enjoy the full manufacturers warranty which is based on the grade of the appliance.  Ask about this when you call to enquire.

When considering all of these options, whether you are thinking long term or short term, and what your budget is, one option will suit you most and you will know it.  Hopefully we’ve convinced you to give the humble factory second consideration.  Whatever model you need we can generally source it for you.

Whitegoods: What are the different fridge styles?

Your refrigerator is a major purchase, and you want to make sure you’re buying the right product for your home. But with so many different options on the market, how can you be sure that you’re choosing a fridge that truly meets your needs?

We’ve put together this guide to the different fridge styles available, to help you make an informed decision.

Different styles of refrigerator

1. Top mount

A top mount fridge is the most common type of refrigerator. In this traditional design, the fridge is divided into two compartments, each behind a separate door. The top is the freezer, and this is usually the smaller of the two compartments. The bottom compartment is a cooler for fresh food and takes up more space.

2. Bottom mount

A bottom mount fridge reverses the top mount design. In this model, the fresh food compartment is located at the top, with the freezer on the bottom. The freezer in a bottom mount fridge tends to be larger than the freezer in a top mount design, providing you with more space for frozen food.

Why Are Standalone Freezers Rarer Than Hens’ Teeth?

When the World Health Organisation declared a pandemic and people began to understand the implications, a certain amount of panic set in. Australians flocked to the supermarket to buy provisions, stripping the shelves of some essentials. However, they needed somewhere to store those perishables and stripped all the standalone freezers as well. So, unless you were quick off the mark, you would have been disappointed as warehouse stocks ran out at the same time as production lines ground to a halt.

Demand Over Supply

Unfortunately, this “perfect storm” scenario created a significant backlog of orders and a clear case of demand that was greater than supply. In fact, it is still difficult to find a standalone freezer, even though people have long since stopped panic buying and production has restarted.

This scarcity has made it very difficult for those with a malfunctioning freezer, who may want a replacement. It’s equally painful for those who are moving into a new home and want to equip their new property with a freezer as they are also finding it hard to find a factory second from any other source.
