I’m a night worker and a bit all over the place during the day- so when my washing machine suddenly stopped working it was quite daunting.
Unfortunately, I use the machine on a daily basis- we have a three year old and my partner is currently retraining as a chef; so it gets a lot of use. When I came home early on the 23rd to find it was allergic to doing whites/lights, I started to look for a replacement. Our washing machine had been on and off for months - I spent six years in the white goods repair industry, mainly via insurance; so I knew it wasn't worth repairing.
Certain high street retailers were charging between 69%-99% APR for people in our situation. While I work, it supports three people and paying another weekly payment store £1700+ for a new machine that costs a fraction of that, didn’t really appeal to me; but felt left with little choice until I searched online.
I found Fair for You via Google, and I chose a Hotpoint appliance, as from previous experience I know they’re pretty solid machines. Applying to Fair for you was extremely simple. Non complex forms, everything explained in black and white. Precontract information the same, everything nice and clear.
