What is Liquidated Stock?
When a business or firm is terminated or bankrupt, its assets are sold and the proceeds pay creditors.
Basically 100s of electronic company's / suppliers up and down the country are terminated or go bankrupt every day. Their stock is then sold off in order to pay creditors. We step in and buy pallets and pallets of this stock at very low prices.
We have also now established deals with large UK distributors who sell off last year’s stock or excess stock for companies.
When the new TV models / appliances are released for that particular year - the big retailers want to sell off the previous year’s stock as quickly as possible. That’s where we step in.
How can we ensure the TV / appliance is New / Unused?
Every Product supplied to us goes through the same quality check
1) Serial numbers are checked to ensure the warranty is valid or retailer warranty provided.
2) TVs - Service menu is accessed in each product in order to validate the viewing hours on each TV - basically this will show if the Product has been previously used as a display model.
3) Any Product that does not conform to the above is rejected and sold off to local traders.
4) We will only sell a Product that conforms to the above - The margins are so tight on each item that it does not make any business sense for us to send a product out that might be rejected by the customer.
What is the warranty?
All of our items come with a manufacturer’s / smartappliancesuk warranty - Any technical fault with the item and we will resolve the issue for you as quickly as possible. This gives you the customer full peace of mind. Physical damage to the item is not covered or any attempt to repair by anyone which has not been authorised by smartappliancesuk.
What will my item include?
All of our items come with:
- Remote and power cable.
- Some TVs require both a regular and SMART remote which we will provide.
- All TVs come with the screws and stand unless a wall bracket is requested.
- If your TV requires a connect box then this will be provided
- 99% of TV's now come with an E-Manaul - This is an electronic manual via the TV menu. We cannot guarantee your item will include a paper manual, however we can send you a downloadable one, just pop us an email.
- Not all sound bars will include brackets.
- Please note some items may be in an open box condition where the original packaging my not be pristine also the original paper work may not be included.
What is the item condition?
** Please note the item description will supersede the generic description below - below is the worst case scenario **
** Please note this is not a brand new sealed item direct from the manufacturer unless stated on the product description **
All of our items are in excellent condition and all of our stock is new. Every TV is checked and tested before sending for quality purposes. All components are checked before packaging. All TV's and components are security marked. All TV's come with a full warranty!
On occasion we have noticed a TV may have a small scuff/mark on the back. This is at most 1 in every 100 TV's. We not send out a TV with any marks to the screen or front facing bezel. Also on occasion the box may not be in the best condition or we may swap the box for our own to ensure a safe delivery.
How to Claim a Free Extended warranty!
All SmartAppliancesUK products come with the manufacturers/ retailers 1 year warranty as standard.
Here are a few SMART ideas to extend the warranty on your New TV -
Why pay on average £425 more for a TV at Currys with an extra 4 years warranty? Modern TV's with mature advanced technology can easily last the life of a 5 year warranty with no issues! Do not be fooled by this sales pitch.
The most common problem with TV's these days is the screen being broken rather than any electronic parts failing!
Please do not fall into the trap of the "5 year warranty" deals - Save your hard earned cash buy with MYSMARTTVS and use the options below to claim an extended warranty!
Warranties sold in shops are often massively over-priced
Many shops will try to flog a warranty on virtually everything - even if the goods only cost a few quid.
Sometimes the warranties cost almost as much as buying a new product. In which case, it's better to take the risk, save the money, and buy a new one if your product breaks.
But if you do want an extended warranty, you can buy an insurance product which covers multiple products, or use a handy comparison tools which searches for the cheapest option. With the comparison site the warranty and the item don't necessarily have to be purchased from the same shop, giving you time to find the best deal.
Free extra year's warranty available with packaged Bank account
An extended warranty is provided as standard if you have the Nationwide FlexPlus account as part of its £10/mth package of extras. It gives an extra year's cover after the manufacturer's guarantee expires.
As most manufacturers automatically include a year's guarantee, that means you can get two years for no cost.
The account also includes worldwide travel insurance, mobile phone insurance and breakdown cover all included within the £10/mth package.
There's no limit on the number of appliances and it covers up to £2,000 per claim with a maximum claim of up to £10,000 per 12-month period. However, it doesn't cover items purchased outside the UK, or 12 months before opening the account.
Your home insurance might cover you
Some home insurance policies will cover electrical items and white goods from theft and damage and breakdown.
'All-risks' cover usually includes items taken outside the home too. Simply check on your home insurance policy, A quick phone call to them is all you need to do.
Compare Extended Warranties
A free to use, extended warranty and service plan comparison website for domestic electrical goods.
http://www.compareextendedwarranties.co.uk/ is simple price comparison site where you can compare the price of warranties across a range of household items. It's run by four providers - Currys PC World, Argos, Domestic & General, Tesco - under an agreement with the Office of Fair Trading.
This comparison site often comes out best for single products, and for multiple products with low values, so check for the items you want to cover and see whether you can beat the multiple item policies above.
Be very careful when using this site as it can be confusing in the way it lists policies. For some policies listed you pay monthly, but others are priced for three or five years. Check that the price - and the cover - are suitable for your needs.
You can't click through from the comparison site to the provider, so you'll have to visit the warranty provider separately. Usually, you'll then need to call or visit a store as only a couple of providers allow you to buy online.
