Bigger isn’t always better

better is better

We are the largest independent appliance and mattress retailer North of Seattle. But being the biggest isn’t what makes us the best. Providing better customer service, better delivery, and better products at better prices is what makes us . . . better. We are a locally owned and operated company that takes pride in serving the community where the owners, employees, and our families all live and work, every day!

Just bought a dishwasher here. Lots of selection . . . very knowledgeable, patient and able to answer questions, clearly knew all the features of each of the machines.

Been shopping at DeWaard and Bode for years now. Between our own personal appliances or for our spec houses, they have been exceptional. Very competitive prices, and great help. Free deliveries and removal of the old appliances too. I wont shop anywhere else.

There are very few who offer such a quality shopping experience. We have bought from them for 25 years.

Dewaard & Bode has been my go to for appliances for almost 20 years and they are always great. Always easy to work with and Ralph always has my back which is a lot for a property manager. Thank you Dewaard & Bode!

I was happy to have found D&B! The sales people were super helpful and informative, going the next mile getting us our fridge delivered the next day. The installers also went 'above and beyond' with a few roadblocks getting the fridge to its final location. I couldn't recommend a better place to get your appliance, extremely happy with them!

It was a pleasure from the moment I entered the store until my final appliance was delivered and installed. From Dave the manager to our salesman, Peter, and including each young man that delivered and installed our new kitchen appliances we felt like we were important. The whole team was very professional and absolutely wonderful to work with. I definitely will recommend them to my friends.

These guys knocked it out of the ballpark! … Not only did DeWaard and Bode jumped through hoops to install my dishwasher they saved me money on the purchase price.
