Installations Outside Of The Chicagoland Area
Please note that most appliances come with a power cord and can be used simply by plugging them in. However, some appliances do not come with parts needed for normal installations. Below is a general guideline to follow on major appliances:
Electric Ranges & Electric Dryers
Since wall sockets vary (from home to home) all electric ranges and dryers are built and shipped without an attached electric cord. You can check the electrical outlet type in your home and purchase the appropriatecord from local appliance or hardware store. Otherwise for a nominal cost, you should be able to arrange an installation from a local appliance service company.
| Electric Dryers
Gas Ranges & Gas Dryers
Gas appliances are shipped without connecting gas lines. For a nominal cost, you should be able to arrange an installation from a local appliance service company.
| Gas Dryers
Washing Machines (Washers)
Water hoses are included with all of the Washing Machines we carry and can be installed with minimal difficulty. For a nominal cost, you should be able to arrange an installation from a local appliance service company.
Refrigerators that come with automatic icemakers or water dispensers need to have the water lines hooked up. To have the lines installed, you can either purchase them at a hardware store and install yourself, or you can arrange installation from a local appliance service company for a nominal cost. Please note that the water line should be copper.
Hose hook up is not usually part of the delivery. To have the water hoses installed, you can either purchase them at a hardware store and install yourself, or you can arrange installation from a local appliance service company at a nominal cost.
Appliances that are going to be "built-in" to your home will require installation, which is not part of standard delivery. You can contact local appliance service or remodeling companies to perform this work for you. Since custom installation varies from project to project, we’d recommend you check with a few companies and compare their prices and services.
