Bekins works with many builders, architects, kitchen designers, interior designers and more. Thursday night, those partners visited our newly expanded Grand Rapids showroom and learned more about our new brands.

Hundreds of guests enjoyed live cooking by the Everyday Chef and Wife in our state-of-the-art, interactive showroom. Representatives from many of the brands we carry answered questions and showed our partners the latest appliance features.

Guests entered to win prizes from our newest brands, LG and Signature Kitchen Suite. Those winners will be announced Monday, February 3.

Thank you to everyone who attended and thank you to our brand partners for this event:

Refresh Your Clothes, Sanitize Delicate Items With The LG Styler At Bekins

LG-Styler-Feature-Image-800

As we introduce a new brand to the Bekins showroom, we would like to introduce some of unique features LG offers. Even if you are set on laundry, an LG Styler would be an easy addition to the home.

It is a product that you can plug in, pour some water in it and start using.

THE VERSATILE LG STYLER

  • Refresh your clothing every day with the gentle power of steam.
  • Sanitize clothes, pillows, children’s toys or other items and reduce allergens by up to 99%.
  • Quickly dry delicates, like lingerie and sweaters, without fear of shrinking or damage from high-heat dryers.
  • Easily care for fabrics that can’t be treated in traditional washers or high-heat tumble dryers.
  • The Styler has a unique door panel which restores pants creases and reduces wrinkles.

EXPERIENCE LG APPLIANCES IN OUR INTERACTIVE SHOWROOMS

Experience LG appliances in our state-of-the-art, interactive showrooms. We display the LG Styler in our newly expanded Grand Rapids showroom.

The Impact Of More Than One Million Pounds Of Recycling By Bekins

Bekins Recycling Efforts - Green company

We not only take care of our customers at Bekins, we also take care of the environment. We believe we are the greenest appliance dealer in the nation, by recycling more than 90 percent of waste in our facilities. Company President Scott Bekins says a visit to the Whirlpool Corporation headquarters right here in West Michigan inspired him to make Bekins a more green company.

“We realized the lengths they go through to recycle and protect the environment,” Scott said. “I thought we should really be doing that. When we built our Coopersville Service Center and Warehouse in 2015, we made a commitment to become one of the greenest appliance dealers in the nation.”

it’s not easy being green

“Many people are not aware of how appliances are packaged these days,” Scott said. “They think it just comes in a cardboard box and we flatten the box.”

However, many appliances do not come in a cardboard box anymore. It takes plastic, banding, corrugated cardboard, styrofoam and other products. We do a lot more than just collapse cardboard.

Recycling at Bekins making a big impact

While some of it appears small, two aspects really add up:

  • We employ more than 100 people.
  • We receive thousands of packaged appliances and electronics every year.

We take the time to not only recycle, but also sort them every day. The commitment in space and time for the cause can really add up as well.

“It does cost more to recycle than to simply throw it away, but it’s worth it,” Scott said. “It’s worth it for our environment and for future generations.”

being a more green company helps the environment

With the help of Louis Padnos, we have tracked how much our recycling has impacted the environment. Since moving into our Warehouse and Service Center in Coopersville in Spring 2015, we have saved:

1,151,197 total pounds of product

2,580 trees

  • 1,040,564 Kwh of energy
  • 14,585 gallons of oil
  • $6,270 of landfill expense
  • 1,062,230 gallons of water
  • 9,104 pounds of air pollution effluents
  • 551 cubic yards of landfill space

OTHER WAYS TO RECYCLE

Not only do we work with companies that recycle materials and reusable appliances, we also donate boxes to people around West Michigan.

Here are just a few examples.

Bekins Adds LG & Signature Kitchen Suite Appliances

We are excited to announce that we have expanded our selection of appliances. Bekins now sells, installs and repairs LG, LG Studio, LG Signature and Signature Kitchen Suite appliances!

WHY WE CHOSE TO ADD lg and signature kitchen suite APPLIANCES

This is not a decision we took lightly. We always strive to carry only the best quality brands and those who support our customers with service after the sale. With that in mind, we researched these brands for about a year before adding them to our showrooms.

We asked other dealers around the nation about their experiences with these brands. LG and SKS even delivered a variety of their appliances to be inspected by our Appliance Installers, Appliance Service Technicians and Sales Professionals. They took each appliance completely apart and grilled the Brand Representatives about every aspect of their process.

At every turn, LG and Signature Kitchen Suite passed with flying colors.

Using FanFresh and Wrinkle Shield Options

FanFresh Blog Feature Image

Let’s be honest, how many of us take out our laundry as soon as the load is finished? While we should, many of us don’t. Select Whirlpool and Maytag laundry machines help keep clothes fresh for up to 16 hours with options like FanFresh and Wrinkle Shield.

WHAT IS FANFRESH?

A variety of brands can tumble your clothes in the washer after it’s done with a load. However, Maytag and Whirlpool’s FanFresh option adds an integrated fan. The fan circulates air through the washer to reduce humidity.

what is wrinkle shield?

The WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature periodically tumbles, rearranges, and fluffs the load to help keep wrinkles from forming.  You may select the “With Steam” setting to add a short steam cycle to help smooth out wrinkles as well.

While Whirlpool and Maytag offer a WRINKLE SHIELD™ option, a variety of brands offer wrinkle prevention options by other names.
