This was the Samsung, from Best Buy, we had delivered — to replace a 13 month old GE. Click to ENLARGE. 289 pounds.
I can’t honestly remember the last time I saw a refrigerator being delivered. Can’t even remember the last time I bought one or have one that needed replacing. All the many houses I have bought over the years came with appliances.
Ditto for this current house which we bought 10 years and 1 month ago.
Yes, 10 years and 1 month ago — and last week the GE Fridge/Freezer decided that it was time for its planned obsolescence. I have since discovered that the lifespan of a ‘modern’ fridge is 8 – 10 years, whereas older ones would last 30 years or more. That would explain why I can’t remember ever buying a new fridge.
I wondered how they were going to take out the old GE (for a $15 fee) and bring in the new 289 pound Samsung.
I had visions of dollies and ramps such that those used by movers.
When I didn’t see a dolly I actually JOKED without ever realizing how close I would be by saying: “what are you going to do, throw it on your back and carry it in?” He replied: “yep, pretty much”.
And he wasn’t joking.
Never seen anything like this. Damn impressive.
But I am NOT sure whether it is safe, wise or advisable.
We also learned that they get no special training as such about avoiding back injury and other damage.
I also learned that they might do 6 such deliveries a day.
Yes, definitely quicker and easier than using a dolly, BUT I can see the potential for disaster.
I am surprised that this is permitted. They are taking quite the risk.
