If you’ve been to Lowe’s before, chances are that you’ve seen their great offers on major appliances up and down the aisles.
But considering how large some of these appliances are, you may have been wondering whether Lowe’s can also deliver them.
I’ve been wondering about this, too, so I started doing some research. Here’s what I’ve found!
Does Lowe’s Deliver Appliances?
Lowe’s offers appliance delivery for multiple major appliances, including refrigerators, electric ranges, and dishwashers. Installation is included with every appliance delivery, and a basic demonstration of the product and testing to ensure it is connected properly before leaving.
So, does a professional install your appliance for you? Read on to find out more, including whether Lowe’s will haul away your previous appliance!
What Is The Cost To Have Appliances Delivered By Lowe’s?
Local delivery for appliances at Lowe’s is free, including the installation. Therefore, the only cost you have to be concerned about is for the major appliance in question.
However, if you need your appliance installed and cannot do it on your own, you can have it installed by a third-party individual sent by Lowe’s.
There is no base cost for this, so you will need to request a quote.
What Appliances Can Be Delivered By Lowe’s?
With so many appliances available, you may be wondering if the appliance you’re looking at will be available for delivery.
Thankfully, Lowe’s offers delivery for just about all of their appliances, and you’ll be able to find out for certain by checking the delivery options when you go to the checkout.
You can also find out by asking an employee if you are shopping in a store. Their list of appliances includes:
- Washers & Dryers
- Kitchen Appliance Suites
- Wall Ovens
- Range Hoods
- Freezers & Ice Makers
- Vacuums & Floor Care
- Garbage Disposals
- Trash Compactors
Should You Tip Lowe’s Delivery Drivers?
Tipping is part of American culture, and there are times when tipping is expected, like tipping your waiter/waitress.
However, most big company stores like Lowe’s don’t allow their employees to accept tips, so your money would be wasted.
Since most of their appliance deliveries are delivered through third-party individuals, it would depend on the driver.
If you think your driver has gone above and beyond to help you, feel free to tip them. This is not expected, so you don’t need to prepare a percentage beforehand.
How Long Does Lowe’s Take To Deliver Appliances?
Appliance delivery from Lowe’s can take a minimum of 2 business days after the order has been processed. However, this can also depend on the available stock of that appliance.
Who Does Lowe’s Use For Appliance Delivery?
Appliance delivery is not directly delivered by Lowe’s. Instead, they hire a third-party individual to deliver and install your appliance for you.
If you are curious as to which third party is delivering your appliance, you can call their customer service team (1-800-445-6937) and inquire.
For regular deliveries, Lowe’s shipping is handled by UPS, FedEx, and USPS.
Do Lowe’s Have A Haul Away Service?
Since you’re getting a new appliance delivered, you may be wondering what to do with your old one. Taking it to the landfill can be incredibly cumbersome, and you may not know how to recycle it appropriately.
Thankfully, Lowe’s offers to take away your old appliance for free with your delivery and recycle it, as long as you are a Lowe’s Pro customer.
Lowe’s Pro is free to sign up and can also come with additional benefits, such as free regular shipping on orders over $45.
Does Appliance Delivery With Lowe’s Include Installation?
Installing a new appliance can be tricky, especially if you don’t feel confident doing so on your own. Thankfully, Lowe’s includes simple free installation from your delivery team when delivering your new appliance.
This includes connecting appliances to an existing water connection, drain, or external dryer exhaust for washers and dryers.
Installations of new connections, such as dryer vents or dryer cords, can only be connected if they were purchased from Lowe’s.
This also includes the connection of the anti-tip bracket (if included) to a range or dryer.
If you need an appliance connected and installed professionally, such as for a dishwasher, cooktop, or oven, you can request a quote from Lowe’s, as this will cost extra and be covered by a third-party individual.
Finally, your deliverer can relocate your old appliance within the same residence for you. However, they cannot reconnect it as this is not covered under delivery.
To prepare for your delivery, you should have all cords and hookups ready to be connected and clear any pathways leading into your space.
You should also confine all pets to a separate area, as well as unplug and empty your old appliance.
