Gorenje, the Slovenian manufacturer famed for its creative and innovative appliances, welcomes the investigation by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) into extended warranties for electrical goods*.
The sale of extended warranties is worth more than £750million a year to those who sell them, but the OFT is concerned that they are too expensive and consumers are not getting value for money*.
Gorenje offers a market-leading free five year parts and labour guarantee on all its built-in single and double ovens, hobs, hoods and built-in cooling plus selected freestanding products, including the new Simplicity range. All other appliances are automatically covered by a free two year parts and labour guarantee, offering real value for both the consumer and retailer.
Ruth Ferguson, Gorenje’s Marketing Manager, says: “Now more than ever, consumers are looking for the best possible value for money, and will consider every aspect when they choose a new appliance. For this reason, any retailer who can offer products with a watertight, extensive guarantee such as Gorenje’s, is going to be of interest to the consumer. Gorenje’s guarantee offers the consumer excellent added value, with complete peace of mind.”
