Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

So far so good. Pleased with this refrigerator. Smaller unit than our last one but roomy enough for our needs. Only drawback are the funky noises it makes. Still not sure if they are all attributable to the ice maker - which is working perfectly fine.

I purchased the LG Washer my first experience with LG over a year ago and every time I do the laundry I tell myself this is the best investment I could have made. Multiple wash cycles provide easy ways to clean various fabrics and I love the bulky and delicate features. The machine is a work horse but you hardly know its running.

Yes, I recommend this product
