Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in Goose Creek

In a day and age where big box stores sell overpriced appliances to hardworking men and women, droves of Americans are flocking to scratch and dent retailers. At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we understand that money doesn’t grow on trees. That’s why we offer our customers the largest selection of overstock and scratch and dent appliances in South Carolina.

Finding a reputable, clean discount appliance store can be challenging. Unfortunately, companies in our industry get a bad rap. Sometimes, they earn it with dingy, poorly-lit stores, empty shelves, and mediocre customer service. At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we are proud to give our customers the “big box” structure of major chains mixed with personable service and affordable pricing of a discount appliance business. Our store is clean, our shelves are stocked, and our staff is ready and waiting to exceed your expectations.

The surge in popularity of scratch and dent appliances might be new, but we are far from a “fly by night” appliance store. As a locally owned and operated appliance store, we have worked very hard to build trust with our customers. We have years of experience selling quality scratch and dent appliances in South Carolina, from washers and dryers to outdoor grills and everything in between. Whether you know the exact brand and appliance you’re looking for or need the assistance of a friendly sales associate, we are here to make your shopping experience seamless and enjoyable!

Scratch and Dent Appliances

Ask yourself this: Why should you pay top-dollar prices for brand new “in the box” appliances when you can have them out of the box with the same warranty for a significant amount less? When you begin to think about buying scratch and dent appliances in Goose Creek, it begins to make all the sense in the world.

Don’t let the term “scratch and dent” scare you – all of our appliances are high-quality, name-brand products that are in great condition. You won’t ever have to worry about an inoperable oven or a faulty dryer when you shop at Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair. Our appliances are all unused and shipped to use straight off the assembly line. That’s right – you’re paying bottom-of-the-barrel prices for brand new products that your family and friends will love.

You might be asking yourself, “What’s the catch?” It might sound too good to be true, but there isn’t any catch. Our scratch and dent appliances are sold at deep discounts because a minor cosmetic issue developed somewhere along the line. A few common reasons why appliances are labeled as scratch and dent include:

  • The product’s external packaging was slightly damaged
  • The product has a small scratch that is barely visible
  • The product has a slight dent that is hard to see
  • The product has a tiny “ding” from being moved around in the warehouse
Service Areas

Unlike some of our competitors, our skilled technicians perform rigorous multi-point examinations on all our appliances. That way, you can rest easy knowing that your out-of-the-box appliance is ready for regular use as soon as it arrives at your home. With a one-year warranty on most scratch and dent items, our customers leave our showroom with a smile on their face knowing their purchase is protected.

And that, in a nutshell, is the Preferred Appliance Sales and Repairs difference: quality appliances, helpful customer service, and real warranties that you can feel good about.

Scratch and Dent Appliances – Are They Right for You?

Here’s the truth: Nobody wants an old, beat-up appliance with huge dents and scratches. Fortunately, we’re not talking about a banged-up dishwasher that barely works. Scratch and dent appliances are just like brand new, except they have a small nick that’s barely noticeable. The question is, are you OK with a small dent if it means you could save 25% off your purchase? What about 50% off? If you were to do a Google search on a name-brand appliance and compare its price to the same item in our showroom, you would see just how cost-effective scratch and dent shopping can be.

The majority of our customers are savvy shoppers who don’t mind tiny imperfections if it means that they will get a great deal. In many cases, these imperfections are paint-based, which are easily fixed with a little elbow grease. If you’re in the market for a fully functional, nearly-new appliance and don’t mind a small blemish, buying scratch and dent appliances is a great choice that won’t break your bank.

Scratch and Dent Quick Facts

  • Scratch and dent doesn’t mean “damaged.” You could save as much as 50% or more off brand new appliances with minor scrapes or dents.
  • We have a huge selection of scratch and dent appliances for sale, including washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and much more.
  • Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair offers customers all major name brands in our industry, including Samsung, LG, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Speed Queen, Maytag, Bosch, Frigidaire, and more.

Scratch and Dent Quick Facts

How to Get the Most Out of Your Scratch and Dent Appliances

Appliances can be a big investment, even if you’re buying them at significant discounts. Of course, you want to keep your appliances in
good shape, so they continue working properly for years. Once you buy one of our scratch and dent appliances, keep in mind these tips
to keep your new merchandise in great working order:

Clean Inside and Out

All appliances need to be cleaned, even washing machines. As an example, cleaning the coils of your new scratch and dent refrigerator will keep it running efficiently.

Only Use Appliances as They Were Intended

If your kids love to play near your appliances, be sure they aren’t standing or sitting on them. If you’re using a scratch and dent dishwasher or clothes dryer, don’t overload them. If your appliance requires specific products, like a high-efficiency laundry detergent, only use the recommended products.

Change filters

You probably know that clothes drying machines have filters that must be changed. However, other appliances like dishwashers and ice makers can also have filters. Read your appliance’s manual to see if your product has a filter, and if so, how often it needs to be changed.

Overstock Appliances in Goose Creek

Much like our scratch and dent merchandise, overstock appliances have become incredibly popular in recent times. While many savvy shoppers already know about the deals associated with overstock items, others hear “overstock appliances” and immediately think something is wrong. Nothing could be further from the truth!

There’s a simple explanation for overstock appliances in South Carolina, and it’s right in the name. Overstock items are products that manufacturers have made too many of or have a surplus of stock that needs to be sold. This is great news for shoppers who can get new, brand-name appliances at a fraction of their original cost.

There are many reasons why a manufacturer might need to sell their merchandise as overstock:

  • A retail store closes its doors, and its appliances and other stock must be liquidated
  • A retail store has an item that doesn’t sell as well as they had hoped
  • The manufacturer or their partners overestimated the amount of stock that they needed

While overstock items are perfectly normal, some customers think they aren’t worth purchasing because of a perceived “expiration date.” The fact is, overstock and surplus appliances are common in every industry because inventory management isn’t an easy job. Sometimes people make errors, but those mistakes can turn into amazing opportunities for high-quality appliances at great prices.

Overstock Appliances Explained

Retailers have to deal with surplus merchandise all the time because older stock must be removed to make room for newer appliances. When a retailer has a surplus of a particular appliance, they will typically reach out to the manufacturer to see if they can return their overstocked appliances. Because these manufacturers charge retailers to restock these surplus items, many retailers choose instead to off-load their stock at a discounted price, and that’s where Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair steps in.

The bottom line? Overstock appliances in Goose Creek are common, brand new, and waiting for you to check out at our showroom. We carry all the major appliance brand names, like Whirlpool, LG, Bosch, Maytag, Kenmore, and even Samsung. Unlike our scratch and dent products, you aren’t going to find any minor dings or scratches on our overstock appliances. It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t – when manufacturers make too much, you’re in luck.

At Preferred Appliance Sales and Repair, we have a vast selection of overstock appliances for you to choose from, including:

  • Microwaves
  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • Refrigerators
  • Stoves
  • TVs
  • Dishwashers
  • Much More!

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County School District has announced that four of its schools will be transitioning to virtual learning for one week because of staffing concerns.

The district said beginning Friday, students at Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High will learn from home and return to the in-person school setting on Jan. 24.

The temporary conversion to distance learning is due to staffing concerns and not student infection rate concerns, according to the district.

As a result, athletic and extracurricular activities will proceed as normal, district officials said.

“The decision to convert Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High to distance learning is based on operational concerns,” said Deon Jackson, BCSD Superintendent. “Staffing shortages have greatly necessitated this decision as school staffs continue to be impacted by COVID-19 isolations and quarantine protocol, and the substitute pool is limited when relied upon by 47 schools. We understand the burden this places on our students, staff and families as our shared goal is to provide quality instruction to our students in our buildings; however, we had to consider how the limited availability of staff impacts safety on campus and instruction. We look forward to the return of these students on Monday, January 24.”

The district released the following additional information:

Schools will work with staff and families to ensure that all students receive their Chromebooks. Information concerning access to assignments and livestream instruction schedules will be provided to students and/or parents by principals and teachers.

BCSD will continue to provide breakfast and lunch at no cost to students at these four schools during this temporary conversion to a distance learning platform. Meals will be distributed Monday through Friday by a drive-through pick up service.

Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students can pick-up breakfast and lunch (10 a.m. to 12 p.m.) from the following locations:

Students will not be permitted to enter the buildings or eat on-site. Child Nutrition will be using the “roster system” so the names of the students will need to be provided by the person(s) picking up the meals.

“We need the support and cooperation of our families and communities to ensure that staff and students return to school healthy and that our remaining schools stay open,” Jackson continued. “Our schools mirror their communities, so we ask that our families and communities follow SC DHEC guidelines, maintain physical distancing in group settings, practice good hygiene, limit unnecessary interactions and gatherings, and wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be achieved or is not practical.”

Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students will return to campuses from distance learning on Monday, January 24. All other BCSD schools will continue to operate in-person following their normal schedules.

Stratford’s girls basketball team appears more than equipped to contend for the Region 7-AAAAA crown in the next month.

The curtains come up on the region slate Jan. 14 at Cane Bay and coach Kelly McNeil’s team has an opportunity to make a statement right out of the gate. The Cobras have been ranked as high as No. 7 in Class AAAAA this season.

Stratford is No. 5 and Cane is eighth in the latest S.C. Basketball Coaches Association rankings.

“I think we’ve made a lot of growth since the beginning of the season,” McNeil said. “I’m seeing more maturity and understanding what we’re trying to do. Maturity-wise a case in point would be the Timberland game. We’re up seven with about 2½ minutes to go and we run a stall game without turning the ball over. We’re able to finish things.”

It’s not far-fetched to believe the winner of Stratford’s region opener could go on to capture a No. 1 seed for the playoffs. Cane Bay improved to 12-3 with a 57-46 victory at Ashley Ridge on Jan. 5, ending a 15-game skid against the Foxes.

Cane Bay opens region play at home on Jan. 11 against Wando, which snapped Goose Creek’s seven-year region win streak last year.

“The biggest thing is we have to play smart,” McNeil said about the Cobras matchup. “We’ve got to make the most of every possession and keep second chances at a minimum. If we both come to play and don’t back down, it will be a very good game.”

The Knights improved to 12-2 on the season with a 44-35 road victory at West Ashley on Jan. 5.

Junior guard Yasmine Cook poured in a game-high 20 points for the Knights and grabbed six rebounds. Junior guard Kaleyia Brown added nine points and four steals. Junior guard Kirstin Prudhomme chipped in seven points and seven assists.

On the season, Cook (16 points per game) and Brown (11 ppg) power Stratford offensively. Prudhomme is out front in rebounds, steals, assists and blocks.

While Cane Bay and Stratford might enter the region as the favorites based on the first half of the season, Goose Creek, Berkeley and Wando will be right there on game nights.

“Everybody has to stay motivated and hungry,” McNeil said. “There is not one team anybody can take for granted. Also there are a lot of great coaches in the region.”

In Cane Bay’s win at Ashley Ridge, junior Alaina Nettles poured in 24 points while Jasmine Jenkins added 12 for the Cobras.

Large murals helping the City of Goose Creek come to life

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – There is a new focus on spotlighting art in the City of Goose Creek.

Local artists spent the day painting a large mural on the side of a business Tuesday. It’s just the first step in bringing more art to the city.

“You’re looking at the very first colorful large-scale piece of public art in the City of Goose Creek,” said the city’s art coordinator, Barbara Richardson, who is active in the art scene.

“I’ve been part of the Cultural Arts Committee for close to three years and its sole purpose is to get art out and give the residence of Goose Creek a feeling of home,” she said.

The mural on the side of the Food Lion shopping center next to Button Hall Avenue is a big part of that push.

“It’s something Goose Creek has needed for a very long time. I’ve lived here all my life,” said Richardson.

She has been helping spread her love of art for decades.

“I went to Goose Creek high school. I went to college, majored in art my master’s degree is also in art; I’ve been an art teacher for years, I’m currently teaching at Charleston School of the Arts, and one of the artists working with us recently graduated.”

Enrique Boyd is from North Charleston but has lived in Goose Creek.

“I mean it’s great. I didn’t know it was gonna blow up as much as it has and I’m excited for everyone to see it when it’s done. We still have a way to go but as you can see, we’re making progress, the second day,” he said.

The other artist working on the project is Louis Tompkins.

“It’s something great that honestly, the city of Goose Creek has needed for a long time,” he said. “I was raised here in Goose Creek. My parents were raised here in Goose Creek, my wife’s parents were raised here. So we have roots here, this actually means a lot to me.”

The city is paying $4,000 for this mural, but they are considering several other art projects for the near future, including a possible mural park, where visitors could come create their own large murals.

“There are many more great things to come here,” said Tompkins.

“Let’s just face it, art transforms communities,” said Richardson.

Richardson says they’re hoping to finish work on the mural later this week and may begin work on another mural after that.

If you own a business in Goose Creek and would be interested in having a mural on your building, you are asked to contact the city.
