Delays in the delivery of appliances are expected throughout much of 2021 due to disruptions in factory production affecting the whole industry and across appliance brands.
Many industries including appliance productions are currently experiencing supply-side delays owing to:
◦ global material shortages not least in the area of electronic components such as semiconductors utilized in all types of appliances;
◦ logistical challenges including container shipment from overseas;
◦ an unprecedented surge in housing and remodeling activity over the past several months.
The length of these delays varies by product and availability changes daily; however fulfillment for some products have recently been around 4 to 6 months, and we expect conditions to be challenging for the foreseeable future. Any delivery dates indicated are estimates based on the information provided by manufacturers at the time ordering and may change based on the status of production and availability.
Customers are advised to place orders early to secure appliances from leading brands such as Gaggenau, Thermador, Bosch, and Sub-Zero & Wolf. One luxury brand manufacturer with general availability is Dacor.
