If you’re planning to buy an appliance from Lowe’s, you may be curious about the installation process. I did some research to find out what installation services Lowe’s currently offers!
Does Lowe’s Install Appliances?
Lowe’s does Install appliances. Lowe’s offers professional installation on a range of appliances, some with free delivery and others for an additional fee. With that, appliances are installed by a Lowe’s third-party qualified professional. Most appliances can be installed in all locations, while gas connection and installation of built-in appliances are only available in specific markets.

What Types Of Appliances Does Lowe’s Install?
Lowe’s free local appliance delivery includes connecting an appliance to an existing water connection, drain, or external dryer exhaust for washers, dryers, freestanding ranges, fridges, and freezers.
However, this means that the customer purchases new connections from Lowe’s (cords for ranges, dryers, and dryer ducts).
With that, Lowe’s can arrange installation for the following appliances:
- Wall ovens
- Slide-in ranges
- Drop-in ranges
- Gas ranges
- Gas dryers
- Range hoods
- Garbage disposals
- Trash compactors
Moreover, installation can be arranged in all available markets and installed by a third-party professional.
Although gas connection and installation of built-in fridges, built-in freezers, and built-in coffee makers are available, they’re only available in select markets.
However, you can receive a quote from Lowe’s to check store and location availability.
What Are Lowe’s Installation Fees?
Installation and demonstration are included within Lowe’s free local appliance delivery for washers, dryers, freestanding ranges, fridges, and freezers.
However, haul away service will cost an extra $30.
You can obtain prices for the installation of dishwashers, microwaves, cooktops, wall ovens, slide-in ranges, drop-in ranges, gas ranges, gas dryers, range hoods, garbage disposals, and trash compactors by acquiring a quote from Lowe’s.
For example, installing a gas stove can range between $100 and $125 if there are already supply lines installed for the gas.
Also, installation for a dishwasher at Lowe’s can cost anywhere between $125 and $450. Finally, the installation cost for microwaves ranges from $120 to $150.
Arranging a quote is essential as the price range depends on the product, location, and install time.
To arrange a quote, you need to provide your contact and address details, tick the appliance you’re interested in installing, detail anything significant to the installers (location for machine, any old appliance that needs to be relocated), and ask any questions.
What’s Included In Lowe’s Installation Service?
The installation services a part of the free Lowe’s delivery include connecting an appliance to an existing water connection, drain, or external dryer exhaust. Also, the service includes:
- The inspection of the appliance
- Connection of an anti-tip bracket for a freestanding range or dryer (if included)
- Demonstration and testing of the appliance
- Relocation of an old appliance
Also, there’s a one-year labor warranty included with the professional installation.
What’s Not Included In Lowe’s Appliance Installation?
The installation and connection provided with the free appliance delivery service do not include installation for dishwashers, microwaves, cooktops, wall ovens, slide-in ranges, drop-in ranges, gas ranges, gas dryers, range hoods, garbage disposals, and trash compactors.
Additionally, haul away is not included in any of Lowe’s installation options, and it always costs $30.
One thing to also note is that haul away can be subject to additional dumping fees determined by the professional third-party installer.
For installing fridges, a new water line and ice maker connectors are required and sold separately.
On the other hand, electrical cords, three or four-prong plugs, or a dryer duct are required and sold separately for electric ranges and dryers.
Also, a new hose is required to connect a washer, which Lowe’s sells separately.
Who Provides The Lowe’s Installation Service?
Lowe’s does not provide the installation service itself. Instead, it sends a third-party, independent professional installer to install the appliance.
With that, the installer provided will depend on your location.
All approved installers are fully licensed (where applicable), fully insured, and background checked, so you know you’re getting a professional who will install the product correctly, in an acceptable time frame, and to an exceptional standard.
