From time to time, old appliances are donated to our ReStore. What risks should our affiliate be concerned about from a safety standpoint?
We strongly recommend that affiliates do not attempt to alter or repair appliances or other items powered by electricity, gas, or propane. That said, if you do choose to sell altered or repaired items, the sales records need to be tracked and should include the item description, sales date, and the purchaser’s information. Having proper documentation will help reduce any future risk related to product liability. Additional information can be found in our 2014 Acceptable Donations Guide on the Affiliate Login page of our website.
