NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE SALES, DELIVERY AND SERVICE

 

HAVING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE?

Every year, New Jersey consumers spend lots of money buying appliances from New Jersey big box stores.  Home appliances are often a source of problems for New Jersey consumers.  Home appliances can cost thousands of dollars but often fail to work and you can’t get the assistance you need to get them fixed. What happens if you buy a washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, outdoor grill or other appliance in New Jersey from a New Jersey big box store and also buy the extended warranty or service contract for the appliance and the appliance fails to work and can’t be fixed?

 

NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE WARRANTY PROBLEMS

Did you buy an appliance from a New Jersey big box store and it stopped working during the warranty period?  Many appliances come with appliance warranties.  The Law Office of Paul DePetris helps New Jersey appliance buyers who buy defective appliances in New Jersey with New Jersey appliance warranty problems.   Don’t accept defective appliances from New Jersey appliance stores.  New Jersey lemon appliances are often a common source of problems for New Jersey appliance purchasers.  Some new appliances purchased in New Jersey end up being a headache for the buyer, costing them hundreds of dollars in repairs and the inconvenience of repeat service calls.  While New Jersey lemon appliances are a big problem for New Jersey consumers, New Jersey appliances often come with manufacturer warranties.  Those warranties often cover repairs or replacements in a specific period of time.  Some have what are called lemon guarantees for bad appliances.  Under those lemon guarantees the manufacturer of the New Jersey lemon appliance offers to replace the New Jersey lemon appliance after a certain number of repair attempts to the New Jersey lemon appliance.  However, New Jersey appliance purchasers do not always get a replacement or the repairs needed to fix their appliances from the appliance manufacturers.  Why suffer with a New Jersey lemon appliance when you can get help?  There is no New Jersey lemon appliance law.  But there are strong laws that help New Jersey buyers of defective appliances to recover money for their bad appliances.  New Jersey lemon appliance buyers whose appliances are not fixed in a reasonable time may be entitled to a refund plus attorney’s fees.

 

Many New Jersey appliance purchasers are victims of a New Jersey breach of warranty or violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.  New Jersey appliance purchasers often qualify for the refund of the appliance purchase price plus attorney’s fees and in some cases, additional damages.  New Jersey appliance warranty problems do not have to be your problem alone.

 

NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE EXTENDED WARRANTIES AND NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE SERVICE CONTRACTS

New Jersey appliance extended warranties and New Jersey appliance service contracts account for a huge profit for New Jersey appliance stores.  Many people are buying New Jersey appliance extended warranties and New Jersey appliance service contracts.  You go to a New Jersey appliance store and get a bedroom set or living room set or family room set of appliance.  The salesperson asks if you want to buy a New Jersey appliance extended warranty or New Jersey appliance service contract with your appliance.  You think about it and buy it hoping it will cover any problem with the appliance you purchased.  Later, when you have a problem with the appliance, you pull out the New Jersey appliance extended warranty or New Jersey appliance service contract only to realize that your problems are not covered.  Instead, you find out that the New Jersey appliance extended warranty or New Jersey appliance service contract wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on!  Often, New Jersey appliance purchasers pay good money for expensive New Jersey extended warranties or New Jersey appliance service contracts for their appliance.  The buyers of these New Jersey appliance extended warranties and New Jersey appliance service contracts hope that by buying these guarantees, they shall have peace of mind and be free of unexpected bills for repairs to their New Jersey appliance.  However, the New Jersey appliance extended warranty buyers and New Jersey appliance service contract buyers later learn to their surprise that the New Jersey appliance extended warranties and don’t cover the problems that they experience with their appliance.  Did you buy a New Jersey appliance warranty or New Jersey appliance service contract for your appliance and the New Jersey appliance extended warranty company or New Jersey appliance service contract company failed to fix the appliance or failed to service the appliance?  Don’t give up hope in getting help!

NEW JERSEY APPLIANCE DELIVERY

New Jersey appliance buyers often find that the appliances delivered to the New Jersey appliance purchaser’s home are not the same appliances as those which they saw in the appliance showroom and ordered from a New Jersey appliance store.  Did you buy a New Jersey appliance and it was delivered dented, scratched or otherwise broken or you didn’t get the appliance you ordered?   Don’t accept appliances from New Jersey appliance stores that are different from what you originally ordered at the store.  There are strict regulations about New Jersey appliance delivery for major electrical appliances sold by New Jersey appliance stores and you do not have to always accept New Jersey appliances that are damaged or different from those that you ordered from the New Jersey appliance store.  You do not always have to accept defective New Jersey appliances!  You may be entitled to a full refund for the appliance you bought from the New Jersey appliance store.
