Your First Choice for Scratch and Dent Appliances in Ladson

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.

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 Ladson, 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.

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 Ladson

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 Ladson 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!

College football Twitter personality Big Game Boomer’s latest list of where various transfer portal entrants may land is one Auburn football fans are hoping has truths (and one big misfire) littered throughout.

BGB is projecting Clemson WR Frank Ladson, a Class of 2019 4-star out of Miami, to pick Auburn as his next home.

He’s also predicting Auburn football transfer portal entry Bo Nix to reunite with former Tigers HC Gus Malzahn with the UCF Knights in what would be an unmitigated disaster for the Auburn family.

Some other notable predictions include Alabama landing a pair of weapons for Bryce Young in Cam Johnson and Mycah Pittman and former Texas A&M QB Zach Calzada (the man that beat ‘Bama) joining Brian Kelly’s first LSU squad:

College Football – Transfer Portal Predictions pic.twitter.com/PhDoz7aBsm

— Big Game Boomer (@BigGameBoomer) December 14, 2021

Let’s address the bad news first. If Nix were to head to UCF, it’d be a major blow to morale on the Plains. The ultimate Auburn man, who was seemingly born to lead the Tigers, heading east to Orlando to win with a coach AU dismissed is nightmarish.

Just go back in time a year and tell yourself back then that at the end of 2021, UCF would have a better record–even after losing to Navy and Louisville–than Auburn and take the Tigers’ starting QB. Past you is probably pissed at you for trolling them with a potential worst-case scenario.

Now, let’s address the good news. Yeah, full send on the lad Ladson joining the Auburn football program.

Ladson had an Auburn offer way back in 2017, and he joined Clemson after they were championship material. With many on Dabo Swinney’s staff jumping ship, Ladson is wise to do the same after being de-emphasized in three years with the Tigers from northwest South Carolina, collecting just 31 catches and six touchdowns over that time span.

Auburn needs receivers, and Landon needs a fresh start. Hard to poke holes in that prediction from BGB.

College Park Estate residents fed up with flooding

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — Lots of rain and no solutions.

Homeowners in the Berkeley County neighborhood of College Parks Estates are looking for answers from county leaders.

“The people in College Park that live on this canal hasn't seen any relief from this,” said resident Marshall Harrison.

His neighbor, Ben Ramsey, said his home has fought a losing battle with heavy rain and flooding for more than 10 years.

“We've been flooded 10 times since 2008,” Ramsey said. “Some, just a little bit of water; some, up to 3-and-a-half-foot of water in the downstairs. Our downstairs is useless.”

Monday’s floodwaters turned the College Park Canal into a raging river.

On Tuesday, Berkeley County crews could be seen dealing with the aftermath left behind on neighborhood bridges, removing trash and debris to allow water to flow downstream.

“They put in these barriers that are supposed to catch all this debris,” Harrison said. “But problem with that is there’s nowhere for the water to flow at that time, and it backs it up farther.”

The WaterGoat was installed by the county to act as a trash-trap, collecting debris at an isolated location and preventing it to flow into harder to reach areas.

But when it comes to clearing out the apparatus, county councilman Tommy Newell said it should be a community effort.

“The volunteer fire department can assist; the county can assist but it has to be a community-type thing,” Newell said.

Newell said he is well-aware of the flooding issues within the neighborhood and said it’s an ongoing issue every time there is a thunderstorm.

He said the county has not sat idly by.

“The county can only do so much,” Newell said. “We have been doing stuff. I’ve asked administration to come up with a history of what we’ve done so we can give that to the public to show we are spending your tax money properly to fix this issue.”

He said the real issue at hand sits outside the county’s jurisdiction.

The Army Corps of Engineers has control over any wetlands dredging.

Currently, a study is underway to investigate current conditions in the neighborhood.

“Box culverts and pipes and other roads and stuff that need to be switched out because they’re 50 years old,” Newell said.

Until changes are made, Newell wants community members— especially those in College Park Estates— to know he is right there with them.

“I’m out there driving the flooded area, making sure people aren’t stranded, stuff like that; that’s what I was doing,” he said. “People say we’re not doing anything and that’s just not true.”

Newell says the results of the study are expected to be available within the coming month.

He encourages community members to volunteer to clear out the WaterGoat.

Volunteers can sign up by contacting Stormwater Program Manager Thurman Simmons at Thurman.simmons@berkeleycountysc.gov or call (843) 719-2691.

They can also contact Sarah McCarthy-Smith at sarah.smith@berkeleycountysc.gov or call (843) 719-2383.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Google is taking notice of a Lowcountry business. The tech giant chose a Ladson company to be part of a new mentoring program, designed to help startups around the nation grow their business.

This partnership all started because of a gallon of milk.

Marlon Brown is busy as he’s a working husband, father and grandfather. So it is not uncommon that he forgot his wife had asked him to pick up a gallon of milk one day after work.

But being a software engineer, his solution was anything but common.

“So, I get in the house and I say,’ You know what? I’m just going to write you an application to where you can attach the message you want to send me to the Walmart I’m going to pass on my way home and then when I pass the Walmart, then I’ll get the message,’” Brown said.

When Brown told his cousin Kendrick Pullen, who lives in Florida, about the app he had created the two formed a business partnership and Lifetagger was born.

“Now Lifetagger allows you to attach content into any signal your phone can detect,” Brown said. “Whether it’s wifi, geolocation, whether it’s beacons. We even do QR codes now so we’re about delivering content when and where it matters.”

The app also works by using sound.

“So Lifetagger can work like Shazam, we can listen to the room for a few seconds, tell what song is on, tell what movie’s playing, and so you can get content when you’re near an audio signal,” Brown said.

Their business pitch had already gained them some clients, but in looking for ways to grow their clientele, Pullen applied for the Google for Startups Founders Academy in January.

Just 50 companies from around the nation would be chosen to take part in the new mentoring program in March. Lifetagger is the only business from South Carolina.

“Me as the product guy, I’m a software engineer by trade so I write the code,” Brown said. “I’m getting enlightened about the sales and stuff. It’s an interesting journey.”

The six month program focuses on sales, marketing and funding and will wrap up in September.

Brown says one of the core values of Lifetagger is “try stuff.”

He says if you have an idea, don’t just let it be an idea, put it into action.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Officials at the South Carolina Emergency Management Division are closely monitoring our state’s seismic activity.

Earlier this week, the Summerville and Ladson area experienced three earthquakes in a matter of hours.

Derrec Becker with the state’s Emergency Management Division says the last time we had three earthquakes in about seven hours was back in 2003. And while he says it’s a little unusual to get three in a row, it just proves how seismically active South Carolina is.

“Where these earthquakes occurred is centered sort of near where the largest earthquake ever recorded on the Eastern seaboard occurred, and that was back in August of 1886,” Becker says.

On August 31, 1886, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit Charleston. The initial shock lasted nearly one minute. It was felt over 2.5 million square miles from Chicago to Cuba.

“You felt a 3.2,” Becker says about the earthquake that occurred Monday night. “Imagine an earthquake that is exponentially greater than that. That’s what we experienced. That’s why we’re very cautious when we talk about earthquakes.”

SCEMD did a study and looked at what would happen if we got an earthquake of a similar magnitude of what we got in 1886. They found the following:

South Carolina normally experience 10-20 earthquakes a year, about two or three of which we can actually feel.

“We know that some people might be concerned seeing three right in a row is the building up to something major,” Becker says. “Unfortunately, we won’t know until we get a major earthquake and then we can say definitively ‘yes those were building up to this and those were foreshocks.’ If we don’t experience a major earthquake after this, or in the near future, it’s just normal background seismicity.”

Officials say they are about 50/50 the three earthquakes we experienced were just the Earth releasing pressure. We won’t know if it was building toward something greater for another six months to a year or even longer.
