Fridge, where to buy one

    Recommended Posts

    As this is the first thing we need as soon as we arrive I thought I'd save my legs and ask where to buy a decent fridge. This is the only thing we didnt ship and our rental doesn't have one, need to get one straight away so we can then fill it up.

    Just some store names where we can take one away without having to order, the equivalent to curry's or dixons etc....

     

    Thanks

    Denise

    Hi,

     

    We bought a fridge when we got here, whilst waiting on our stuff to come over. Its got a small frezeer comp. at top and was ideal in the short term, we probs used it for about 2 weeks so almost new. Im selling for $100 if your interested?!

    There are a few around. Check the yellow pages, but I know there is one on South Rd near Castle Plaza at Edwardstown but on the otherside of the road.

    It's always worth having a shop round. Good Guys are sometimes the cheapest to go to, but have a look at Harvey Norman, Truscotts and Myer. We've bought a lot of our stuff from Myer as we've found them the cheapest, and they all will drop the price if you ask them too. It does depend how much your willing to spend to see how much it's worth a drive round.

     

    If you just want something fairly cheap then Radio Rentals have a clearence centre on South Road, these are ex-rentals or factory seconds, and can be quite cheap...

    I'm hearing good things about Keith Bowden as well.

     

    Some of our recent guests who are settling permanently has been very impressed by both their price and service.

    If they aren't interested, I will DEFINITELY buy it from you. Been looking out for a 2nd fridge! Please PM if it remains available. We are at Seacliff, just down the road.

    Thanks

    We thought we'd save somemoney on a washing machine from the RR place. BIG mistake. It kept breaking down, we were calling people out left, right and centre and it cost us money as we had to buy another one.

    One word of advice, we would suggest buying the largest fridge/freezer you can afford, or will fit into the available space. We find we have to keep loads more in the fridge here to keep it fresh, and it also helps if you have room for drinks, as no real aussie likes warm beer!!. We finished up with an extra fridge/freezer in the garage to store the extra's

    You go for it, our fridge is staying in the UK so we will be buying a new fairly big one to keep us going for a long time.

    Thanks for the offer Gill but we left our fridge here so we will need to buy a big boy to last us a long time and to store the massive amounts of food my husband eats!

    We bought our fridge from Harvey Norman, Marion road. If you buy before 1 they will deliver the next day.They are very reliable, and will beat a price.There was money off our washing machine and they took money off the warranty aswell. 2 years plus 4 years warranty for about $70.
