FINDING THE BEST APPLIANCES – LEARNING FROM SERVICE

Best Appliances - Service Knowledge

At Bekins, we like to say that we are a service company that sells, installs and repairs appliances and electronics. However, our Appliance Repair Technicians serve an extra purpose for our customers. We use the knowledge we gain from our Service Repair Technicians to pick the best appliances for our customers.

WHEN BUYING APPLIANCES – CONSULT THE EXPERTS

Appliances change rapidly. Why not consult the experts before investing in products that you expect to last decades?

Our Appliance Professionals are experts on the latest appliances and know what’s on the horizon. They know which questions to ask to help you choose the product that works best for you. They have also helped thousands of other people pick and install new appliances, so they can use those experiences to benefit you.

NO BETTER EXPERTS THAN REPAIR TECHS AND INSTALLERS

You will only find the best products in our showrooms. How do we pick the best? We make thousands of house calls each year. Our Appliance Installers see how an appliance fits and works in the home, then our Service Repair Technicians see which brands constantly need repair and which brands last.

We also know which brands help fix issues that can arise over the years, and which brands expect you to just buy a new one.

Our experts even consult with the brands we carry to help them improve their products. We tell them what works well and what needs to change. So we see which brands truly care about your needs.

WE CAN SPOT TRUE INNOVATION

Some new appliance features sound nice, but do not provide true value to your life.

However, brands like Thermador provide innovation that truly helps.

One example, their patented Star Burner. It not only looks cool, but it provides more heat to your pan during cooking. Instead of a flame wrapped around the edge, the star shaped burner lets more heat reach the interior. It is also elevated to make it easier to clean.

TRY the best appliances IN OUR SHOWROOM

You can become an expert when you visit our state-of-the-art, interactive showroom. We want you to experience the appliances before you invest in them. When you experience it, you will not only have confidence in your decision, you will be thrilled with your purchase.

The “innovative technology” in the home includes the appliances. The homeowners chose the custom panel option for their refrigerator which also features new Open Door Assist technology. The homeowners can push or pull their door open. Even if they accidentally bump it open, or forget about it, the door will automatically close within a few seconds. This video shows the new technology in action.
