Do Today’s Appliances Wear Out Sooner?

Appliances of old lasted longer than appliances today.

True or False?

True. The useful life of an appliance today is not what it once was. The same is true with the clothes we wear, the automobiles we buy, and the homes we build.

Twenty years ago, the Maytag repairman was known as “Old Lonely” and hyped as the loneliest man in town. Maytag salespeople bragged about a transmission that was said to last for 25 years, far longer than the average life of a washing machine.

While Maytag brand still touts its durability and commercial parts, they no longer refer to the Maytag repairman as “Old Lonely” and the factory where those legendary machines were made was closed soon after Whirlpool purchased Maytag in 2006.

Ironically, this is actually good news for consumers. There is little to be gained from paying for a product that is over engineered. It makes no sense to pay for a 25 year transmission in a washer that lasts 12 years on average. We replace appliances now, that we once used to repair. We do so:

  • in order to get the new latest and greatest new features.
  • to avoid today's high cost of repair.
  • to take advantage of greater energy savings in newer appliances.

Life expectancy aside, today's appliances perform better, use less energy, offer more features, and cost less as a percentage of our total income, than ever before. So rather than bemoaning the fact that these products have a replacement cycle and won't be passed down to our children, we should consider what great values they are.

To get the best value on appliances consumers should:

  1. Get professional advice. A trained appliance salesperson is worth his or her weight in gold. Buying from a home improvement store or a club where you get either bad advice or no advice will probably mean that you'll pay to much. Spending hundreds of dollars for a product that doesn't meet your expectations means you paid too much even if the price was low.
  2. Buy from a trusted source. Choosing a local company that has been in business for a while, and specializes in appliances is a good idea. You'll get a good value from somebody who has a reputation of standing behind their products.

In Arizona, a good choice would be Arizona Wholesale Supply Company. They've been in business for over half a century, are locally owned, have a highly skilled sales force, and have their own delivery and service. They have three convenient locations in Arizona. Call or visit today:

Pricing of Luxury Appliances

An explanation of UMRP

Why Dealers seem to all have the same prices on luxury brands.

Isn't that illegal price fixing?

No. If there were an agreement among retailers to set prices, that would be illegal. What has likely happened is that individual manufacturers have set a retail price on their goods known as a Unilaterally Maintained Retail Price (UMRP). The UMRP price is not a result of a discussion or agreement between or among manufacturers or retailers, but is a price that is independently set by the manufacturer. Since there is NO agreement with the retailer regarding this pricing policy, there is no collusion or price fixing.

Here is what the FTC says about this. “A manufacturer may suggest prices to dealers, and then deal only with sellers willing to comply with the price demands.” *

What it amounts to is an announcement by the manufacturer of what the retail price of a given product should be. Retailers may sell any product that they own at a price that they determine themselves. HOWEVER, if they choose to sell at a price different from the UMRP set by the supplier, the supplier may independently decide to refuse to sell additional products to the retailer. It's worth repeating that the UMRP policy is one that is set by the supplier independently and that a decision to refuse to sell a dealer who violates the UMRP policy is also made independently and without colluding with any other retailer or supplier.

There are other lawful methods that manufacturers have of setting retail prices of products such as MSRP and MAP policies. They differ from UMRP, but in the end have a similar result. As you might expect, it does get complicated, and to make it even more confusing individual states have differing standards.

We're not providing any of the above information as legal advice, but rather just to inform you so that you won't automatically jump to the conclusion that when dealers seem to have the same price they have violated the law. Different manufacturers have different pricing policies, and for sure there is plenty of interbrand competition in the market place.
