Purchasing Used Appliances – Is is worth it?

In these times, many people are living on pretty restrictive budgets. As a result, when it comes to making major purchases such as home appliances, we tend to spend a good deal of time looking for lower-cost products. Maybe you are in the market for home appliances and want to spend the least amount of money on your purchase.

If you are living on a budget and are on the hunt for home appliances, you might want to consider the purchase of used home appliances. 

One thing to consider when getting a used appliance is, is it worth it? Are you going to have to call up an appliance repair company in 2 months because your used stove broke down? 

Yes, you can find used home appliance on sites like marketplace, kijiji,  craigs list etc.. for very reasonable prices, sometimes even free. You can save a significant amount of money on a used appliance as opposed to purchasing a new one. A lot of times these used appliances are in great condition and well taken care of by the previous owner, and the only reason they are getting rid of it is that they are upgrading to a newer model.  

Ask questions when you are checking out the item, when was it purchased, how often was it used, was it moved around a lot, has it had any repairs done. Always ask to see the item working, especially for big items like fridges and stoves. 

In the end, you have to ask yourself if the price is worth the time, effort and potentially the money that you will have to put in if the appliance breaks down in a few months?
