Buying a fridge from John Lewis


Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if John Lewis still deliver to Shetland. I was under the impression they did but have just tried to order a fridge. It came up with order unavailable to your delivery address or may be out of stock. I tried 3 different models and it came up with the same message so I assume it is the delivery address that is the problem. Anybody know if they no longer deliver to Shetland? Thanks.

Yes, John Lewis do deliver up here and worth buying as the prices are so much better than up here!

 

However, be aware that not all manufacturers have service agents up here. We have a Hotpoint fridge freezer bought from John Lewis but they could not service it if it went wrong, in or out of guarantee and since there is not a Hotpoint agent in Shetland, that means you are taking a slight gamble with some manufacturers.

Anidder reason to buy fae Geordie Robertsons. Dir servicing service (!) is excellent.

If George Robertson’s do not stock the model you are after, can they not get it in?

 

I’ve seen on two occasions, getting something specific ordered and were always excellent on price, plus added peace of mind in case any proper back up is required.

 

Everything is getting that complicated nowadays and seems to be made to discourage diy repairs.

they are made so you cant fix them. look at TVs. once it was a quick visit from a repairman and a valve was switched. now you would have to replace half of the telly. at a higher cost than buying new. dryers in point the back bearing wares with age. it used to be reasonably easy to replace it for under10quid. now they weld it to the drum.

Many appliances are still repairable but it is the overall cost of repair that makes it uneconomical.

 

The repair man has to be paid for the time it takes to identify the fault , specialist equipment ,order replacement bits ,fitting those new parts  and  premises to work from ect,ect ,it all adds up.

 

Most times a quick calculation and the faulty item is destined for the skip  :roll:

 

I had a Sony tv that lasted 12 years fault free !
