Hello everyone. Has anybody done business with Appliances Unlimited in Queensbury, NY? Are they reputable? If so, What is the process of getting a W & D set transported from NY to SC? Some of you have suggested transport companies but I don't know how to start the process. Thanks.

I've bought a number of machines and parts from Appliances Unlimited over the years (a Wards dishwasher, a 63 GE Filter-Flo set, and a 51 Kenmore dryer).  Only the Kenmore dryer was in 'total restoration needed' condition.   Most people here on the board would say that I paid far too much for the machines, but given that such machines are seldom, if ever, seen this side of the border, I think I paid a reasonable price for machines I really wanted.  


Queensbury is within my 'driving range' so I have been fortunate enough (with help from philr and his truck!!) to pick up the machines myself.  However, I recently used the services of Jackie Dempere, who has transported a number of machines for several members) and I think she did a great job for a reasonable rate.     If you'd like to contact Jackie,  please email me at my address in my profile and I'll send you her email.

I have been to their web-site and have written them several times about a washer that I wanted to purchase. They never wrote me or called me back. What a way to run a business

I've done the same and not received any response.

with PhilR and Paul... they do have a lot of cool stuff, but being older and from the "tell it like it is" generation ie: I'm not as diplomatic as Paul, LOL... so to be perfectly frank I felt the owner Hans had priced things like he didn't give a cr_p if he ever sold them or not (high), was not at all interested in talking about prices, almost like he was doing you a favor by even showing you vintage stuff - most of their sales are new near new stuff or repairs I imagine having seen what's around there (it's quite large). I'm told that allegedly he later scrapped a number of vintage machines, it would seem almost out of spite, which to me is absolutely beyond tbe pale... I honestly don't need anything so badly that I will abide rude or indifferent treatment... clearly, my advice: don't bother with them.
