We live in a mobile world. Nearly everything these days can be accessed directly from your mobile device. Everything from Bank Accounts to Parking Apps can be downloaded directly to your phone. Here at AVM we’ve been hard at work on our website developing a mobile friendly design so that you can order at any time from wherever you are. Whether you’re working from a tablet or mobile device our responsive site is easy to use. Like Bob Dylan said, “The times they are a-changin”, and it’s up to us to change with them.
At www.goavm.com you’ll first notice the new clean design. All of your favorite features are still right at your fingertips making it easy for you to place your order online. Begin by logging in or if you happen to be a new customer, registering with our website. You’ll see the “Favorite list” tab that you can enter commonly ordered items into to save for making your future orders easier and efficient. You can still use the “wishlist” for items that you normally don’t have to order but know that you’ll need to soon while browsing our site. Let’s refresh how to optimally use these features.
The first of these options that we’d like to highlight is the “Add to Favorites” list. Any products that you frequently order should be added to this list so that the next time you need to order these products all you’ll have to do is select it from your favorites list in order to “Add to Cart”. These Items will remain in your “My Favorites List” until you remove them from the list and can be accessed anytime via the “My Favorite List” tab at the top the webpage.
There may be some products that you see as you are browsing that you might not need at the moment, but will soon. For these items, you should click “Add to Wish List.” When you are ready to purchase these products, they will be easy to find, and you can simply click “Add to Cart.” These items will then disappear from the “My Wish List”. Utilizing these two lists will save you your valuable time by speeding up your purchasing process.
You’ll also notice that the drop down menus open up into categories with images as well as dropdown lists. You can navigate through our website using either the image links or dropdown menu. If you’re working on mobile or tablet the dropdown menu will be the way to go. On mobile or tablet you’ll notice two drop down menus. One that lists our product categories and one that navigates to different functions of our site. The third item you’ll notice is your shopping cart. The search function is also available on mobile, tablet, & desktop versions. This is the place to insert any keyword searches or items. You’ll notice that when scrolling through items the images appear large on your screen and have three icons beneath each image. The first image is of a shopping cart, if you click on this image it will add this item into your shopping cart. The second image is of a gift or present, if you click on this image the item will be added to your wish list. The third image is of a heart and this will add the item into your favorites list.
We’re happy to have unveiled the mobile friendly version of our website, and as always our knowledgeable CSR’s are ready to help you with your ordering as well.

When most people hear the word refurbished, it’s usually followed more with questions or concern than it is with certainty. When deciding whether or not to purchase a refurbished appliance, it’s important to weigh the pro and cons of a “new” item versus a “refurbished” item for yourself and your business.
First of all refurbished products are not “new” but might even be “as good as new.” They have been sent back to the manufacturer for any number of reasons. Perhaps a part was broken on arrival. It may have become broken after some time or usage. Maybe the exterior of the product became damaged during shipping and consequently the customer sent it back to the manufacturer. The product may have been used as a demo or display item and may have minor dents or dings. A refurbished item should not be considered a brand new item because whatever defect caused the original customer to send it back was needed to be fixed. The manufacture then fixes the problem and sells it of as a refurbished product. The first thing you should compare is what you are actually getting with a “new” item versus a “refurbished” item.
First, you will probably notice the price. Compare it with a “new” products pricing to see how much of a discount has actually been placed into the refurbished price. Typically the item’s warranty will be less if it has been in use, so this should also be reflected into the “refurbished” price. As well as any other wear that has been accumulated.
Be sure to take a look at the warranty offered with the item. If the warranty is significantly lower than the original warranty it may not be a good deal. For instance if the item originally came with a 18-month warranty and is now a 12-month warranty, then the discount price should reflect it and if so, that may still be a good deal. If the item originally came with a 3 year-warranty but is now at a 90-day warranty it may not be such a good deal after all, unless the price has been greatly discounted. Another thing to take into account is how much more likely the product is to need warranty servicing. The more service the item may require the less likely a refurbished product is a good deal. Ironically, these are the products most often offered as refurbished because there is a large supply of them from people sending them back in to the manufacturer for service.
Be sure to take into account these factors and all of the details that go along with the product, and you will find yourself the good deal that you’re looking for.
AVM’s refurbished microwaves come with a 1-year warranty, at a price of $39.95. The features and colors vary depending on our stock and we cannot guarantee the make or model of the microwaves.
If you are looking for a good solution at a good price, look no further than AVM. Certainly this will be a great deal for your business.
