You are at the cash, just about ready to pay for your brand new set of home appliances, when the vendor mentions an ?extended warranty plan that covers everything without any fuss for 3 years”. Not sure what to do, you hesitate and say you will think about it. Sounds familiar? Whether it is for appliances or electronic devices, extended warranties (or extended service plan) are everywhere these day. Are they worth it? Continue reading to find out more in this article provided by Rosedale Service, a certified appliance repair company in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
First of all, you need to know that it is usually required by law for manufacturer to cover any nonphysical problem with the appliance that appears before a year. A physical issue refers to, say, your angry teenager kicking the fridge door and warping it, resulting in improper isolation. Understandably, any issue with the machine caused by your own actions will not be covered by any warranty. However, any mechanical malfunction (i.e. dryer doesn’t dry properly, refrigerator constantly leaks, dishwasher leaves plates dirty) should be covered by the manufacturer for the first year, which means that any claim by a salesman that the standard warranty for your model is nonexistent isn’t telling you the truth. Specific brands and companies offer more coverage by default, so be sure to research on that.
In simple terms, what the ESP does is that it lengthens the duration of a warranty, adding itself to the standard warranty. Even if it seems like a good deal, do your homework first, because extended warranty scams are not unheard of.
