Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in Hanahan

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.

Our store is clean, our shelves are stocked, and our staff is ready and waiting to exceed your expectations.

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 Hanahan, 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

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

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 Hanahan

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 Hanahan 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!

Resident shares concern over Railroad Avenue extension project in Hanahan

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Work to extend Railroad Avenue is underway in Hanahan. But after seeing the construction, one person who lives near the project says they have some concerns.

Trees are being removed along the railroad tracks to make room for a two-lane road that will soon connect a portion of Hanahan that currently can only be accessed by using Rivers Avenue.

“There are so many concerns,” said Thomas Cato. “The one that really bothers me: the quality of water. The Goose Creek Reservoir supplies Berkeley County, Charleston County, and parts of Dorchester County. So, the runoff from that extension will run into the reservoir.”

Cato lives in the Lakewood Lodge Apartments which is located between the railroad and the Goose Creek reservoir.

A portion of the 1.2-mile Railroad Avenue extension is being constructed between the train tracks and the apartment complex.

He’s also worried about wildlife near the project.

“The area right beside the wildlife preserve will have to be severely impacted by increasing that roadbed,” he said. “There’s pelicans, there’s egrets, there’s the fish- a lot of people that love to fish and they’re catching bass all day long.”

Cato says the way the tracks and road will be laid out will increase noise for people in the nearby apartments.

“Since the railroad track is up at the top of the hill, the water reserve is at the bottom of the hill, the noise at the top of the hill will propagate out into the water.”

Berkeley County and Hanahan officials say this extension is needed to allow emergency services to access Otranto and Eagle Landing subdivisions in case an emergency happens, and a train was to block the railroad crossings.

Right now, there is no way in or out other than driving over train tracks.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation performed an environmental assessment on the project. It says the impact is acceptable – you can read a copy of that report by clicking here.

Still, Cato says believes the impact is going to be too great, and it will make living at his home more difficult.

“They’re definitely going to have problems getting people and now that the tree line has been cut down and there’s going to be traffic right up against the buildings in the apartment complex.”

Construction on the project began earlier this month.

Officials with SCDOT say it should take about 18 months to complete.

Leaders break ground on new 53-acre park in Hanahan

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.

The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.

“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec. It was exactly what the city of Hanahan needed.”

The last time Hanahan opened new ballfields there were only 13,700 people in the town. Now, about 29,000 call Hanahan home.

“There will be tennis courts, an artificial turf field, ballfields, a dog park, fishing pond, picnic spaces – you name it,” said Mayor Rainwater. “Everything that you would love to see in a park will be here.”

The project will cost more than $11 million. The Berkeley County School District agreed to pay nearly $1 million for artificial turf on a field so that it could be used as a practice field.

“We will partner with them to make sure they now have the things they need to play their sports,” the mayor said.

Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb said Hanahan has been working on the project for some time, even during the full ten years he was town administrator.

“It’s critical because it’s a quality-of-life project,” he said. “If you’re going to be a vibrant city, a vibrant community, people are looking for parks and recreation- do you want to draw in young families, do you want to be able to keep the families that you’ve drawn in?”

Bryce Florie grew up in Hanahan and has coached kids in the area, He said this is a great project.

“Just the way the community has grown and the need for it- it’s so important and the way the city came together… it’s a good place for everyone,” he said.

Mayor Rainwater hopes to have the park finished a year from now. The park has not yet been named.

‘He doesn’t deserve this’: Hanahan Family speaks after student assaulted at Minnesota college

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Five years ago at the age of 15 Chad Waldrop picked up a new sport and started swimming for West Ashley High School.“It’s his life. It really is. He loves it.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Five years ago at the age of 15 Chad Waldrop picked up a new sport and started swimming for West Ashley High School.

“It’s his life. It really is. He loves it. He took to it right away and it became his life,” said his father Jerry Waldrop, but now Chad is putting that passion on hold as he fights for his life.

His Dad Jerry just wants to take away the pain of his son.

“The thought of him not being able to swim again just hurts, hurts,” said Jerry.

On Saturday, September 18th both Jerry and Chad’s life changed in a matter of five seconds.

“It’s just, it’s just, you know, to think you almost lost your kid and you want to do everything for him, you want to be there for him. It’s your worst nightmare. It really is,” said Jerry.

Police say Chad walked out the back door of his house in Minnesota where he attended school at St. Cloud State University to the sounds of a woman screaming. Reports state she appeared to be in a fight with a man. Moments later Waldrop was slammed to the ground, punched repeatedly, and knocked out.

“Just by the witnesses and what they told me it was really unprovoked and unwarranted and just evil, evil,” said Jerry.

The suspect Ezaya Oropeza is a wrestler at the university and is now charged with assault 3rd degree and could face five years in prison.

“Why, why, why? He’s a good kid. He doesn’t deserve this,” said Jerry.

Chad suffered a concussion, multiple fractures in his face, and cuts in his mouth.

“Basically, it looks like a jigsaw puzzle. It’s all broken,” said Jerry and now the family is demanding justice.

“It tears you up. I just I can’t. I want to take it away from him. I want the pain. Give me the pain. I don’t want my child to have that,” said Jerry.

Chad’s family has set up a GoFundMe, as well as a page dedicated to holding accountable those responsible. Click here for more information.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - Hanahan Middle School is hiring a new, first year principal from within the Berkeley County School District.

Kelli Roberson has been with Berkeley County Schools for 20 years, and the district says she starts her first school year as a principal on Monday.

Roberson did her student practicum at Hanahan Middle when she was a student at the College of Charleston. So she says her new role as principal is a full circle moment.

This year she’s launching “flex time.” she says it’s an allotted amount of time after lunch for intentional and purposeful intervention. This allows teachers to assess where students are in their education, as well as socially and emotionally. Roberson says it also gives teachers time to discuss areas they would like to improve.

The Hanahan Middle School guidance department is also implementing what they call minute meetings, Roberson says. Guidance counselors will meet with every student for at least one minute at the beginning of the year, making sure kids have a one-on-one conversation with a counselor.

“Well, for some of our kids, they haven’t been inside a school building in 18 months. So, it’s just, you know, not only are we going to be thinking about their academics, but we’re having to re-teach the norms of being around people and being connected to others,” Roberson said. “I’m sure they’ve missed that, I think teachers, adults missed it when we were not in a building with one-another, so it’s just a way to continue to build those connections.”

She adds that there are some learning methods that were advanced during the pandemic that they plan to keep in place.

“I think just using technology as a means of, especially when students are out and absent, knowing that we can still provide that instruction when students aren’t present in the building, whatever that reason might be,” Roberson said. “And it’s also just using the tools that are available just to make sure all students have access to notes and any kind of resources they can use to go back and re-learn something or just as a reminder, it’ll help them do the work that they need to do.”

Roberson says there’s a lot of history and community support around Hanahan Middle School which is encouraging for this first-time principal.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Hanahan residents are still frustrated over trains that continue to block area roadways for hours at a time.

One train was seen blocking Hanahan Road for hours Wednesday morning, and before that, Hanahan town administrator Mike Cochran told News 2 a train sat blocking roads for more than 20 hours straight recently.

The road the trains are blocking is a major thoroughfare for people driving to and from Rivers Avenue and Hanahan.

“We’ve got about 7,000 cars a day that cross the tracks right here, and in the last several months, we’ve had multiple instances where the tracks just get blocked by a parked train,” said Cochran.

Drivers are forced to add additional time to their commute; it also slows emergency responses.

“From the city’s perspective, if you’re trying to get an ambulance through the city, you’re crossing here in order to get over to the hospitals,” he explained.

Technically, blocking the road is illegal according to more-than-100-year-old state laws. But the fine is only $5 to $20, and it is difficult to enforce.

“We have contacted CSX and spoke with them on several occasions, and they’re aware of it, but it really is frustrating for our residents and frustrating for everybody involved,” said Cochran. “Last week, it sat there for over 30 hours.”

Cochran said he has a plan that may give residents a way to know when a train is stopped in the area. The county owns the library at the corner of Murray Drive and Highland Park Road. He’s asked about placing a camera there.

“I said is there a way that we could put a camera, or the county put a camera, on the library? If they were to put a camera on that library and point it toward the tracks, we would have a constant feed of exactly what the status of the tracks are.”

The video would also be streamed online.

“We’ll have that ability to push that information out, so while it’s not a perfect solution, it will at least allow an option because right now the only way you know if the tracks are blocked it’s the drive to them.”

News 2 reached out to CSX to see if they have any plans to change their policy of blocking trains for hours at a time. We are waiting to hear back.
