The Best Places to Buy White Goods in Dubai

home appliances dubai

Before moving into a new property in Dubai, it is a good idea to check with your real estate agent or landlord about what white goods are included with the property. Most apartments and houses in Dubai come equipped with only the very basic white goods, such as cookers, washing machines, and refrigerators if any at all. If you are moving to Dubai from abroad, it is rarely cost-effective to have these goods shipped to your new home even if you already own everything you need. Fortunately, you should be able to get good deals on them locally.

There are several places where white goods can be purchased in Dubai. The larger supermarkets typically have an electronics section that offers products from an array of international brands with competitive prices. Supermarkets Carrefour, Geant, Lulu, and Union Coop all sell a wide range of white goods. You should also take a look in electronic stores, such as Sharaf DG and Emax, which can be found in the popular malls in Dubai such as Ibn Battuta and The Dubai Mall. Most of these supermarkets and electronic stores will have a home delivery option, so that will be one less thing for you to worry about!

Although prices of white goods vary, depending on the features of each item and the brand name, here is an insight into the range of prices you can expect to pay for new white goods in Dubai:

  • Refrigerator – AED 1,000 to 6,000
  • Washing machine – AED 1,000 to 6,500
  • Dishwasher – AED 2,000 to 3,400
  • Microwave – AED 300 to 1,600
  • Cooker – AED 900 to 3,700
  • Vacuum – AED 250 to 2,500

As you can see the range of prices differs quite drastically. This is mostly down to the features and brand of the product but make sure to shop around and compare prices on items before buying them! Outlets often have deals on these products; such as store vouchers for every couple of hundred dirhams you spend or even free products! So take the time to compare prices and look out for promotional offers that could end up saving you a significant amount of money. If you are lucky enough to be looking to buy white goods during the Dubai Shopping Festival then you will surely come across some great bargains.

As well as comparing prices when you are looking to buy your white goods, make sure to also take the product warranty into consideration. For a small additional charge, some outlets will allow you to increase the number of years you are covered. Some will also offer their own guarantee on the products (as well as the manufacturer’s guarantee).

ServiceMarket tip: If you’re on a budget or simply want to save a few extra bucks where you can, you can find great bargains in the classified section of newspapers, notice boards in supermarkets, and online on websites like Dubizzle. The only downside is that sellers typically expect you to collect the items yourself so you will have to arrange for the pick-up. But don’t worry, ServiceMarket can help you get quotes from moving companies to pick up and deliver these items to your new home.
