Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (206) 623-8811 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Thank you for choosing Metropolitan Appliance! We are sure that you will be glad that you have chosen the best independently owned appliance supplier in Seattle. With the most knowledgeable specialists, our own talented and experienced installation team, and large showroom selection, know that you will be treated fairly in service to your satisfaction.

Terms Of Purchase

All retail purchases are required to be secured with a minimum 50% deposit. Custom ordered equipment is non-returnable, non-cancellable when ordered. Any balances remaining to be paid on an order are due at the time delivery is scheduled. No payment-upon-delivery terms are available. Metropolitan Appliance will make every effort to have your equipment arrive before your targeted delivery date. To retain allocation, all orders must be paid in full if stored for more than 60 days after the targeted delivery date.

Warranty Information

On top of the standard warranties that are on all of the items that we sell (length of warranty and warranty coverage vary by item), we also partner with Consumer Protection Services to offer additional warranties on all appliance purchases.

  • Display and out of box items are sold “as is” and may not be covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty. Please see your Metropolitan Appliance associate for details on specific items.

  • If you need assistance in reaching out to the manufacturer or authorized service company for warranty assistance, our customer service team will be able to assist you with your initial set up as well as any follow ups or communication between the service company and the manufacturer.

  • Metropolitan Appliance will not be responsible for any installation, repair, replacement, or any additional charges (such as labor or parts) that may result from warranty service.

  • Metropolitan Appliance makes no express or implied warranties. Metropolitan Appliance disclaims all warranties, whether implied by operation of law or otherwise, including, without limitation, all implied warranties of merchantability of fitness or fitness for a particular purpose.

Suitability & Completeness

Metropolitan Appliance is not responsible as to whether the product fits the space requirements, matches décor, and/or whether there is sufficient access for installation or use. Please confirm with your contractor and/or installer that the items that are being quoted and subsequently ordered constitute all the related products and parts needed for your project.

Material Return Information

Our goal and commitment to you, as our valued customer, is to provide you with the education and service to avoid any return or exchange issues. We do understand that these things happen and are able to offer you a full refund on your item if it is in proper condition for resale, in its undamaged original packaging, with all original parts and accessories within 10 days of purchase.

You will receive your refund back to the original form of payment at time of purchase. Though we process your refund immediately, it can take up to 14 days for your card issuer to credit the funds to your account. In the case of Cash payment, a full refund will be sent via check to you, within 2 weeks of the returned product’s receipt.

Given the unique nature of items that were special-ordered specifically to complete your sale, we are not able to cancel these items or return them. While these specially ordered pieces may be right for you and your kitchen, unfortunately they are not right for everyone and cannot be integrated into our inventory. In short, if the item was in stock at the time of purchase, it is returnable.

The sale of all clearance and display items is final; no refunds or returns will be available.

If we have installed your item, we will not be able to offer you a refund. However, we will be able to offer you a merchandise credit, minus a minimum of 15% as a restocking fee. This merchandise credit can be used on any future purchase through Metropolitan Appliance. Your restocking fee is determined by the condition of the returned merchandise. Any merchandise that has been modified, abused, altered, or damaged, is not eligible for return.

If your appliance is not able to be installed, our delivery and installation team will notify you of what needs to be changed to allow for the installation of the appliance to continue. You will be charged $90 per hour per team that is onsite to do your installation for the duration of your scheduled appointment.

If you find that your item is defective upon use, we must hear from you within 10 days of purchase. We would be glad to work with the manufacturer to troubleshoot and resolve this issue under the terms of their warranty.

Note on COVID-19 and the current state of availability:

As of early 2022, we are experiencing much longer than normal lead times on almost all items. These lead times will apply, not only to the original lead time when placing your order, but also to the time it will take to get a replacement item for the item that you returned. This is also true for the service side of the industry, appointment dates and part lead times are much further out than normal. Metropolitan Appliance will do our best to get you your appliances as soon as possible, but you should remain in contact with your Specialist. Please know that all lead times are prone to change.
