Ask MetaFilter. I got myself a washer/dryer and a refrigerator, with installation and delivery(supposedly).
I got myself a washer/dryer and a ice box, with installation and delivery(supposedly). The washer/dryer folks arrived, put the washer/dryer where they certainly were expected to get, and hooked within the dryer. Chances are they said „oh, we do not have the hose that is right the washer, you will have to get purchase one and hook it up yourself“.
Well, lo and behold, a few hours later the ice box dudes arrived. They place the refrigerator set up, after which stated „oh, we do not have the right hose, you will have to get get one and hook it up yourself“.
It was enough to trigger my scam detector. Do appliance stores commonly stay away from water that is attaching? Something related to obligation and/or warranty coverage? This really is in the united states (Oregon), btw. If all I’m getting is distribution, rather than installation, i possibly could simply purchase the things that are bloody from the web.
Anecdotally, for my final refrigerator purchase (a decade ago) and my final clothes washer purchase (4 years back), the installer declined to hook either up to water. For the refrigerator, i guess he had been justified for the reason that my one that is previous did have water hookup and setting up it required a variety of drilling and fishing tubing through 12′ of home cabinets. For the washer, the man provided me with the hose reason. We loudly reported to your shop where i got myself it, they delivered some other person out using the right hose and hooked it.
My SIL bought a fridge that is new thirty days in addition to installer got the old one out and also the brand new one in and plugged in but once again, no previous water hookup so that the installer did not accomplish that component.
