My wife wont buy anything electrical unless she sees it working !we recently discovered HMR which sells a lot of used items and new from Australia, a lot of things have battery covers missing,
and radios have antennas missing etc,
We have bought a new coffee grinder and brewer from there and they actually plugged it in and tested it with water !
We also bought a radio cd player and clocks everything tested before we bought it.
Coming from the UK most stores are just showrooms and dont hold any stock and the delivery guys are just that !
Here we have bought tvs,washing machines,kettles,rice cooker etc all tested before we bought them !
With my wife and her sister if it cant be tested we dont buy it !
