Should I bother to register my appliance?

More and more, new products come with a card or a link to  website address for you to register your new purchase.  Many times we don’t bother or forget, but is it something we should do? You don’t have to register your appliance but there is real reasons why you should. We all have our basic statutory rights if an appliance is faulty or breaks down, but in many cases manufacturers offer above and beyond the basics for free.

Some Manufacturer’s will refuse to honour extended guarantees past 12 months if you haven’t registered the appliance

Appliances come with a manufacturer’s 12 month guarantee, any repairs within this time will be done without much fuss and for free. However, most manufacturers offer longer.  Bosch and Neff manufacturers warranties are 2 years.  If you don’t, they may refuse to carry out a future repair once it’s out of the first 12 month period.  There is always the suspicion that giving your details our will result in marketing calls spam, but strict laws on email and telemarketing means it’s easy to opt out.  The last thing these manufacturers want to do is put you off their brand for your next large appliance purchase.

Not registering the guarantee has safety implications for your appliance

Sometimes, faults develop that warrant serious product recalls.  You are probably aware of the tumble dryer problems in the UK with several brands of dryer being recalled.  By registering, you ensure that you can be contacted in case of serious fault through their guarantee registration database.
