Speed Queen Built To Last
When it comes to washing machines, few brands have a reputation as strong.
When it comes to washing machines, few brands have a reputation as strong and enduring as Speed Queen. Founded back in 1908 (and originally named Barlow & Seeling Manufacturing), Speed Queen has been in the laundry business almost as long as the electric laundry machine. Speed Queen machines are considered by many to be the best machines on the market for a variety of reasons, including durability, longevity, quality, and efficiency.
It's often been said about appliances that “they don't make things like they used to,” but this aphorism doesn't really fit for Speed Queen. Speed Queen machines are built and tested to last 10,400 cycles, or roughly 25 years. These machines have been manufactured in the same factory for over 110 years – since the brand's inception. While Speed Queen have certainly made modifications to their product in those 110 years, it seems they work by another aphorism – “if it ain't broke, don't fix it.”
Where durability is concerned, Speed Queen machines are manufactured with steel and other metal and commercial quality components. These things are built to last, and it shows. Not only is the construction sturdy, but Speed Queen displays their confidence in their products by offering three, five, and seven-year warranties, which covers both parts AND in-home labor. This is much more extensive than most manufacturer's warranties, which is only a good move if your product is reliable.
In fact, Speed Queen has been named the most reliable appliance brand for the past three years by a leading publication (one where consumers report their findings). The bottom line is, if you're tired of appliances that aren't designed to last, but still cost an arm and a leg, it's time to give Speed Queen a shot. With the outstanding warranty options available, what have you got to lose? So drop by your local West Coast to check our selection of Speed Queen laundry machines – you'll be glad you did!
