What Are Scratch And Dent Appliances?

Scratch and dent appliances typically have small cosmetic imperfections or damaged packaging that prevent them from being sold at full price. These minor flaws result in discounted new or near-new appliances that are perfect for the budget-conscious. All scratch and dent appliances are tested by a trained technician to ensure they function according to manufacturer requirements. Many of the cosmetic flaws are often so minor (e.g. scratches and dents either on the front or sides or both; the original box, paperwork, and accessories may be worn, damaged, or missing) that they won’t mar the clean, crisp style of your appliance while still providing you with great savings!

What About Delivery?

Scratch and dent appliances come with the same delivery and installation options as our brand new appliances. To prepare for delivery, please make sure someone is there to greet us and there is a clear path to where the appliance needs to go.
