We always like to shop local & support our community but I just cant justify paying alot more for the same thing. My son bought a range there back in the spring and soon after found it nearly 200 bucks less somewhere else. I had the same luck with my last small tv but while looking for a larger one for our den, Giffords said led was the best so we measured the screen and took down the model. When looking at it online we found it on tigerdirect for 600 bucks less and it even came with extra 3d glasses. Service is nice but what I keep hearing is that all the new stuff is just made to throw away anyways, so if thats the case then well take the 600 dollars. When our washer needed new bearings and a pump it was less to just order a new one from Lowes than to even mess with the repair and the guy even told us theyre all built by the same people anyways. Id shop there if they could at least be more competitive but overtime it just seems like they keep getting higher and higher and dont have what it takes to make a difference with service. At least then we might could still justify it but when we have to replace it anyway and sometimes wait weeks for calls or parts then were just going to start watching our bottom line. jacketfansville

After 5 service appointments and waiting for weeks to have my directv fixed... I still had issues with it and was locked into a 2 year contact. I started calling directv instead and their guy had the problem fixed in 15 mintes for no cost to me. Ive already started using someone else for my appliance and tv fixes too. When I took my flat screen in they said the screen went bad and that it would cost more to fix then to replace it and then tried to get me to look at new ones for $2500. I took it somewhere else a week later and then was told that it was just a minor repair and walked out for less than $200. The other guy in the metroplex said he gets that all the time. So needless to say, I wont be back to giffords.

Don't listen to the negative people on this site. Gifford's was awesome. They have by far the best selection of tv's and appliances anywhere around. The prices on what I was shopping for was far less than any other place around. I just moved here and found them to be the best I have ever dealt with. They were very knowledgeable on everything and made some great suggestions that helped me find exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Chris. So my advice would be don't listen to the people who talk bad about them. Give them a shot and see for yourself. They are the best.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
