Bit off topic, but don't forget to include a warming drawer in your kitchen appliance selection.
First time inclusion for us in our kitchen reno - just a great piece of equipment.

E&S had a warehouse sale on last Sun, and we bought a brand new Bosch semi-integrated dishwasher for almost 60% less!
Then we went into a branch and bought Smeg 900mm freestanding cooker and rangehood for what we would have paid for Blanco sets elsewhere. (Having said that we were buying two sets of everything so that must have affected pricing quite a bit..) I researched well over 15 online stores and other retailers (inc Good guys, Clive Peeters commercial division...etc) before I went into E&S store, NO ONE is even close! For instance, Good guys had a special price on the same Smeg cooker but it was still $800 dearer than what we paid at E&S.
Excellent customer service as well - for instance, we later found out they were going to have a massive Smeg brand sale from tomorrow till Sun and they are happy to match sale price if they are any cheaper than what we already paid!

We purchased our fridge from http://www.eljo.com.au/ earlier this year when they were having a promotion. It was about $200 cheaper than the cheapest deal we found in other stores.
Last week, they had a pretty good deal on a TV too.

In Melbourne we've made quite a few purchases at the graysonline.com.au home renovators auctions that are on every second week. Sinks, taps, washer/dryer combo brand new $650, shower screen $145 (that was online), free standing 60cm gas oven and cook top $850 brand new. Definitely worth a look just don't tell anyone as I'm helping a mate this weekend buy some stuff and the less people the better We helped my sister in law get a double ensemble bed for $500, they have a bit of furniture aswell. Then all the usual stuff like tiles, floorboards etc
Don't buy small electrical there though it's all cr@p. I think they get pallets of 'shop floor' stock when really it's returned items that are broken, and funnily enough they have a no returns policy.

Yes, I've heard of them too. A mate of mine recommended and I think it's a great place to go if you're doing a reno. But it didn't quite suit our needs as we had to fit out two townhouses identically and wanted to keep the whole taps / appliances...etc from one design range rather than mix and match.

ah no that's the trick. Crazy, people have no idea when they go to the auctions. Catalogue says 4 avail, then 2 people bid against each other until they win....thing is usually they want only 1 each. So if they stopped the auctioneer wants to sell as many as possible and says at the end does anybody else want one? For exactly the same price. Usually they have multiple of all items they want to sell.

Another vote for E&S Trading.
I went to the special Harvey Norman Chadstone VIP "Staff Price" sales event last night and I got their best quote for my kitchen appliances. When I didn't buy on the spot and wanted some time to consider it, the sales guy told me it was one night only, unbeatable prices and walked off muttering that there was nothing to think about.
Today I went to E&S Trading to ask about the same appliances. They beat the HN prices with no sales pressure and maintain that I can cancel anytime in the future if I change my mind for a full refund. A pleasure to deal with.

I used a family owned business in Berloni Appliances which some friends recommended after they used them www.berloniappliances.com - They were fantastic with their knowledge of the products and gave me a great package price - Compared it to a few on the market in who were a little pushy and some were no help at all - They were still the best price but myself & my wife also wanted the customer service to go over the products to narrow down exactly what we wanted and we definitely got it there. Highly recommend

Hi ac 21
I totally agree with you, DH & l have just finished purchasing all our Miele kitchen & laundry appliances, our only non Miele appliance was our induction cooktop which ended up buying a 90cm Neff cooktop. All the staff at Berloni Appliances in Heidelberg, were fantastic, I met all of the staff & they genuinely care that you purchase the correct appliances that suit your lifestyle., they aren't sales driven, there isn't competition amongst staff to sell the most for bonuses, it's a family business so any sales stays under the same roof.
After all it's a big investment buying all your appliances for the new house we are just about to built. Miele do allow you to store your appliances for up to 12months, you only need to put 20% deposit to hold appliances. Neff holds your appliances for up to 7 months with 25% deposit but you must pay the appliances in full by 90 days. Berloni has offered to store my Neff cooktop after the 7 months storage expires from Neff. Also Neff give you a standard 4 years standard warranty, their induction cooktop has more advanced technology in flexi induction which allows you to have a greater area of induction without any cold spots for 2 pots on the heat on the same side of the cooktop, instead of 2 circular heat areas the flexi induction has one oblong area that covers a third of the cooktop area thus allowing you 2 pots on the heat without compromise. (That's the main reason why we didn't choose a Miele induction cooktop). I also highly recommend Berloni Appliances, you can't go wrong with them!!

I really like this idea. I don't know if it will work, but its surely worth a shot. I suggest you try writing to companies as well. Ex: LG, Samsung, Bosch etc.
