Does Costco Offer Free Delivery on Appliances?
The cost of appliance delivery is typically included in the price of the appliance unless noted otherwise. So technically, you’re paying for your appliances to be delivered, but Costco will call it free delivery on most appliances.
A fee is quoted at checkout for areas that are outside of Costco’s delivery zones.
How Long Does Costco Appliance Delivery Take?
Costco states that it takes 10 days for appliance delivery, but some customers say it can take anywhere between three to four weeks to deliver appliances.
How Does Costco Delivery for Appliances Work?
Costco’s delivery team will:
- Ensure that there’s no damage to your new appliance(s). If anyone notices any damage, the item will be returned to Costco to be replaced
- Connect the new appliance(s) to home utilities and make sure that they work properly
- Remove all packaging materials from your house
- Either remove the appliance that is being replaced from your home or relocate the appliance to the garage, the basement, or a lower floor
- Or will remove a “haul-away” item from your home and recycle it using strict, environmentally friendly guidelines
Costco’s delivery team won’t:
- Remove their footwear to enter your home, but will take extreme caution to keep your home and merchandise safe
- Hoist or lift merchandise over countertops, banisters, and other obstructions or through windows
- Relocate used appliances to a new address or reconnect relocated used appliances
- Perform plumbing, electrical, carpentry work or install appliance trim work
- Install slid-in or free-standing range without installing a range anti-tip device
What Do I Need to Know for My Costco Appliance Delivery?
Costco has guidelines in place for each type of appliance that they deliver. So, here’s a quick rundown of what that guideline has to say:
Refrigerators and Freezers
If your fridge dispenses water and ice cubes, there needs to be space between the wall and the fridge for the waterline. This helps reduce the risk of deterioration of the existing lines.
Verify the existing utilities:
- 3-prong grounded electrical outlet three feet from the appliance location
- Water supply and shutoff
Built-In Ovens, Microwaves, and Dishwashers
Keep in mind that the delivery time cannot install dishwashers, compactors, or built-in ovens. These items need to be installed by an installation contractor.
- Verify that you have a 240V grounded, 50 AMP gas or electrical power supply available
- Ensure you have a water supply and/or gas supply that has an accessible shutoff valve on the same floor level that’s within three feet from the appliance location
The key is to make sure that you have everything ready for the installation and delivery before Costco delivery gets to your home. This ensures that the delivery goes smoothly.
Should I Tip Costco Appliance Delivery?
There is no requirement to tip Costco appliance delivery, but you may do so if you feel they have exceeded your expectations.
What Does Costco Do with Haul Away Appliances?
When Costco removes haul away appliances, they will recycle them following strict, environmentally friendly guidelines.
How Do I Prepare for My Costco Appliance Home Delivery?
When you’re prepared to make your appliance purchase, you must have the right measurements. Most people tend to forget to think about the space where their new fridge, dishwasher, washer, or dryer are being placed, and then the appliance doesn’t fit.
To ensure that your delivery goes smoothly, you need to get complete and accurate measurements for your existing appliances (or the space in which you’re placing your new appliance).
This ensures that you’re purchasing an appliance that will fit in the space you need it to fit in.
Finally, plan out how you’re going to bring the new appliance into your home. Are you going to bring it in through your front door? Will it fit through your hallway?
Before you make any purchase, take time to consider all of these elements to ensure that your delivery is smooth and easy.
What Kind of Appliances Does Costco Sell?
Costco sells a variety of different appliances in-store and online. Here is just a shortlist of some of the appliances they sell:
- Washers & dryers
- Cooking appliances
- Water Heaters
Keep in mind that they have a larger selection of items available online than they do in-store. So, if you’re looking for something specific, you’re probably better off searching on their website first and then going in-store if they have it.
What Brand of Appliances Does Costco Sell?
Costco sells a wide range of brands at their store. Here are some of the more popular brands:
They have so many more brands that they sell, but these are the ones that are the most popular amongst customers. If you’re looking for a specific brand, check Costco’s website to see if your local store sells it.
Are Costco Appliances Good?
Yes! Costco appliances are worth the investment because you’re getting the same appliances you would be getting from big box stores for a great price. So, you know that you’re not compromising on the quality of the product when you pay a lower price than you would at Home Depot.
Because of this, and because of the amazing extended warranties that Costco offers for their appliances, Costco appliances are a good investment.
What is Costco’s Appliance Return Policy?
You have 90 days from the date of purchase of your appliance to decide if you don’t like it and want to return it for a full refund – no questions asked.
So, if you aren’t sure about the color of your new dishwasher and ultimately decide that the black doesn’t work in your kitchen, you can return it for a refund and purchase a new color.
Costco will accept your refund and won’t ask you any questions about why you’ve decided to return your new appliance.
Additionally, don’t forget to see my post on if Costco does standard delivery for groceries and other items on their website.
