I ordered a washer and an oven last week, from a scratch and dent store in Haifa. I spent a fortune, but less than I would have at the regular store (yes, I surveyed the regular prices). And my husband bargained, which is a good thing. He's a much better bargainer than I am.
They were delivered this week, on Monday at the ridiculous time of 6:45 a.m., which did not ingratiate us with our neighbors. It was a large truck and we live on a tiny "simta" (best translated as "alley". It is one way and the truck barely fit on the street - it couldn't turn into our driveway though, not enough swingroom). So the truck blocked the whole street for several minutes - 10, 12 tops. And of course, our neighbor needed to leave for work...
Thursday a technician came and installed our new appliances. We are now inaugurating them!
Here's the washer (it's already done several loads - what a difference to now have a 10 kg machine. I am thrilled!)
Wish me luck!
