Home Appliances – the REAL cost!

Leading online appliance vendors like AO, Argos, Amazon and the Co-op seem to offer unbeatable value for many new home appliances, but when you look at the small print their offers are far from the great value they pretend to be. They frequently neglect to point out all their additional charges. Usually you will also need services like carrying the item to your kitchen, removing the old one, fitting the new one, getting rid of the wrapping, disposing of your old appliances and some instruction in how to use it. For each and every one of these services you discover only later that there are extra charges, often extremely high!

Remember that companies like Curry’s and the Co-op are only retail stores; companies like AO and Amazon aren’t even that – they only deliver your home appliances and have no shops at all. Of all the home appliances suppliers below, only Homesource are genuine home appliances engineers. So its no surprise that your total costs work out far less than they do if you buy from one of the big mail-order suppliers.

The comparison table below is accurate to the best of our knowledge at date of writing (September 2018). Be sure to read the additional notes as well in order to understand what your total costs may be.

(*1) INSTALLATIONS: Homesource4U prices include delivery, other companies are quoting additional to their delivery charges (if any apply)
(*2) Quote assumes old appliance is already disconnected (as part of an installation?) otherwise additional charges are made (usually £10 for electrical, more for gas)
(*3) No additional services, like attaching handles, are included.
(*4) Service unavailable, not advertised, or too variable to quote.
(*5) Start price. Can be more.
(*6) Only limited assistance will be provided
(*7) On some products only.
