6 Argos Services You Should Be Taking Advantage Of
Argos is the UK’s leading digital retailer, offering more than 33,000 products through Argos online, its growing mobile channels, Argos stores, over the telephone and uniquely, through Argos TV. It also offers a range of services that people often forget about, such as financial services and aftercare and support.
Some services are better left alone, but most should be taken advantage of. Here are just some of them that you might not know about.
Computer tech support
If you buy or have bought a laptop, computer or tech item from Argos – either online or in store, their computer tech service means that they’ll help you out if you run into any problems. You just need to call Argos. They can help you set it up, and get you started, and have technical experts on hand to deal with most of your computer-related problems. And if they can’t resolve the issue they’ll advise you what to do next. They may even arrange for your computer to be collected if a repair is required. It’s part of the deal, so make sure you get what you pay for.
Jewellery and watch repair
Jewellery and wrist wear are personal things and so you should look after them, especially if they’re expensive items. But accidents do happen, and among the many other services on offer, Argos have a jewellery and watch repair service you can use with ease. They also have an engraving service for those special gifts, and a resizing service for those gifts gone wrong. Call in to any Argos outlet for an estimate. You can check opening times for your nearest store here.
Furniture assembly service
If you’re about as practical as a pair of flip flops on a mountain hike when it comes to assembling flat pack furniture, and have no one close who can help you. Argos’ furniture assembly service could be just what you need. They’ve teamed up with Screwdriver Ltd, the UK’s biggest and most experienced flat pack home assembly service. These guys will arrange for someone to visit your home on a convenient date and time to assemble the item(s). Just call them up and tell them which flat-packed item(s) you have purchased and they’ll provide you with a fixed price quote based upon the time required to assemble the item(s).
If you forget a birthday or anniversary or you need an item in a hurry, then the Argos Shutl service could really help you out. Just order your item online and if your reservation is eligible for Shutl delivery, they will get it to you on the same day to your home or office at a time that suits you. There is a price tag for this but if they can get it delivered to you within 90 minutes of your order, before your loved one even notices a thing, we’d say it’s worth it.
If you’re looking to buy from the Argos Heart of House upholstery range, you could find yourself spoilt for choice. It can be a tricky decision choosing the colour and fabric of your new sofa or armchair, so why not make it easier for yourself and order some free swatch samples. Just note down the product numbers that you’re interested in and give Argos a call.
Buy now pay later
Although it’s never a good idea to get a loan, sometimes emergencies require buying now and paying later. Argos offers this service at 29.9& APR. They’ve also recently introduced the Argos credit card. Apply now and you could get a credit card limit starting from £150 – £1,000. Call them for more information.
