Reviewers Advice Before you Buy

Slomin's reviewers have lots of complaints when it comes to moving, and for maintenance outside of the warranty. You are locking in to a 5 year contract, so be clear with the salesperson, the contract needs to reflect your living and work situation or you will be stuck with a long term contract.

  • Confirm the contract has provisions in case you move
  • If you are a active military member confirm that you do not have to pay in case of deployment
