When updateing or remodeling of existing units can anyone tell me how do you find the appliance venders for purchasing new kitchens and what do you do with the old appliances

I haven't replaced large numbers (more than 4) at once, but "big box home improvement stores" have been good options in the past for me. They can probably provide quantity discounts, and will remove the old appliances.

If you just need to get rid of the old appliances you might be able to sell them on Craigslist. Some people will probably hall them away for free and keep whatever money they get from the scrapyard.

Finding a way to manage the liability of uninsured scrap collectors on your property might be a challenge though...

We have a purchasing agreement with General Electric. Certainly such an arrangement can be made with HD Supply, Chadwell, Lowe's or any of your existing vendors. We use a contractor to do our upgrades and he disposes of the old appliances. If you are doing upgrades in-house perhaps you can check with your waste disposal company about removal of old appliances. Some charities are happy to take old but still functional appliances off your hands so check in your area with Goodwill, Salvation Army, churches, etc. I hope this helps!

Robert,

I always start with the local or state Apartment Association and check their vendor lists. They often have many contractors and rehab contractors listed who will do property renovations. There may be local contractors, too, who take on this type of large scale project. As others have said, if you can get Purchasing Agreements in place with appliance companies and hardware suppliers, you'll get the best pricing when buying in quantity. As far as removal of old appliances, I always call one of the local re-sale shops first and see if they want and are able to buy any of the old ones. Sometimes they cannot, and when they can't we have them hauled away so that we meet the environmental disposal laws. I do like to use that local shop because they have the ability to inspect and ensure the appliance is in good working order before they put it for sale in their shop. Craigslist is certainly another option, too, but usually no one wants to pay much and then if you have 50 stoves, 50 refrigerators, etc. where do you store them while you wait for someone to buy and pick them up from the property?

For cabinet installs, I recommend using Lowes, etc. and this has worked well for me in the past. (We also used an Amish family that came and measured, created the cabinets, and installed. But that can get pretty pricey if each cabinet is "custom built.")
