Four Things A Vacuum Cleaner Dealer Can Do That A Retail Store Can't

Posted on: 28 May 2019

Sure, you can probably get an amazing deal on that vacuum that you have always wanted from a retail store, but what else can you buy for the vacuum from that same store? If you are lucky, you will be able to get the dirt collection bags, if you get a vacuum that uses them, but that is about it. Why not seek out a vacuum cleaner dealer and his/her shop instead? Here are four things you can get from a specific vacuums-only shop that you cannot get from a retail store. 

A Greater Selection of Vacuums

What you see in a retail store where vacuums are concerned is really just the tip of the iceberg. There are dozens more vacuums from iconic manufacturers and name brands, plus many you have never even heard of before. Before you buy the vacuum you believe is the perfect one for you, make sure you visit a vacuum store to see if there is not something better first. 

More Than Just Vacuum Bags

Newer vacuums have HEPA filters and filter systems. Lots of vacuums have accessories and hoses, some of which can split or become lost over time. There are also cleaning and maintenance tools for vacuums. (Bet you did not know that?) All of these items and more can be found in a vacuum dealer's shop, including parts to outdated and no longer manufactured vacuums!

Repair Shop

Rather than throw out your vacuum when it breaks down or does not work, take it to a vacuum shop. The employees are trained to take vacuums apart, find what is not working, and replace it. They can also clear out anything that is stuck somewhere inside your machine, lube parts that need it, and check the motor and motor casing for problems. 

Restore Vintage Vacuums

For whatever reason, say that your grandma left you her 1958 Electrolux in her will. You have no idea what to do with this ancient canister vac, but Grandma used it for decades and the thing lasted a long time. When you go to fire it up, however, the switch that allows you to choose "blow" or "suck" seems to be working in reverse. A vacuum cleaner dealer can actually help you restore this vintage "vac," and possibly continue using it, if you should choose to do so. It is not often that such a request is made, but it is something that no retail store could ever possibly do.
