Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Harle 6/3/2020

Freezer was delivered yesterday so really can't give it 5 stars yet. However, it reached the proper freezer temp very quickly. Fits nicely in the garage. Compact but very roomy interior. Excellent size for extra freezer space for 2 people. Florida Garages are very hot in the summer and this model is made to handle the heat and keep the right interior temp. I hope it works! So far I would recommend but ask me again in about 6 months. Only giving 4 stars for performance because I just got it.

JJaayy 6/2/2020

This freezer has been working well so far. It was the largest that would fit through my basement door and down the stairs and having the extra freezer space is helpful. If it continues to run like this for years to come I'll be very pleased. Time will tell.

Are recently purchased chest freezer is been one of the best appliances we have now in our home. It allows for excess storage which we desperately needed from our refrigerator and has been so convenient and providing us food when we needed it in an excess amount.

deb16470 5/19/2020

The freezer is a good fit for my needs in terms of capacity and the amount of space it takes. The tradeoff is that it is quite deep, so I realize I need to have some kind of rotation system in place for the food items.

It does come with a cover on the back where the power cord goes so there is an 8"x8" opening where critters can get in to make a nice warm nest next to the compressor. I had to cover it with chicken wire myself. Other than that it works fine.

Love my freezer. Perfect for small family. I have it in my dining area of my apartment and it truly is very quiet! Looks nice too. Has a bright green light at bottom right so you know if the light goes off you have lost power to it. Have not had a problem with that though. Well worth the purchase price.
