Famous Tate is famous for their no return policy. I am an elderly, 85 yr old disabled lady on my own and like a trusting person, called over the phone to order a refrigeratior on sale in the newspaper. Having dealt with Home Depot & Lowes in the past, it never dawned on me to question their return policy. Unfortunately I found out the hard way. They want to charge a return fee of, get this,...

Famous Tates reviewThis was a horrible experience for us and has held up the showing of our home.

and a wonderful salesman we are very sorry to be leaving as we move to Ocala. I have never had to call service for anything I bought from Famous Tate except for our washer, which had been in the garage for a year while we fixed up our house to sell, they were out to us the next day after we called, go the part and fixed it quickly. Their warranty plans are about 1/2 of what we paid at Sears for... Read more

I bought $27,000 worth of appliances from Famous Tate in 2007. I was basically told I would be crazy not to buy the extended warranties for them, which were an additional $2k for all appliances covered up to 5 years. Well, the warranty company, VAC Service Corporation (name has probably changed 100 times because of negative reviews and complaints), has never honored my warranty. 1st issue:... Read more

Purchased washer from scratch and Dent at Famous Tate. They are supposed to work, only have cosmetic flaws. The first one didn't work properly. Had to go back to the store and pick out another one! Found another one in the "Scratch & Dent". Another Saturday wasted waiting on a washer. Get the replacement washer and it doesn't spin! All my clothes are soaking wet. Called Famous... Read more

DO NOT purchase from Famous Tate! Every appliance I have purchased has needed repairs almost immediately. I always purchase the maintenance agreement and have used the same salesman. Somehow he erroneously did not add the warranty. My front load washing machine does not work, 1 month after the 1 year mark. They do NOT care and the salesperson answering the phone was inconsiderate and did not have... Read more
