Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

GGDEMAN 9/3/2020

We shopped many different brands and came to the conclusion that GE would be the best for our dollar. We currently own other GE products and are completely satisfied with their performance.

GE Freezer

Tim0019 9/2/2020

Product was very easy to set up. Runs especially quiet...green light at the bottom of the front panel is very helpful as it lets us know the freezer is operating. Holds plenty of frozen food for us. We like the drain feature if we ever need to defrost. The freezer definitely frees up space in our regular GE refrigerator and allows us to plan ahead for family visits or to just have supplies on hand. Can't figure out why we didn't buy one much earlier!

marbth 8/12/2020

Nice and compact, yet it holds A LOT. It's in my garage, and it's been hot-hot-hot out there for the past few weeks. But the freezer is unfazed by the heat - it's working perfectly. Haven't notice a huge increase in my electricity usage, either, so it must be efficient. The only downside is that it is a manual defrost, but I knew that when I bought it.
