PURCHASING APPLIANCES IN TRIPOLI
You will be surprised at how many shops there are here selling a wide range of appliances. You can find everything from ovens, stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, etc…! The only real limiting factor here is your budget as you can find simple cheaper appliances all the way up to the larger and latest technologically advanced models.
One area that is known for selling appliance is on Gorgi Road. Heading west from the city center on Gorgi Road if you continue past the large Aman bank on your left, you will find an abundance of stores selling all kinds of appliances and televisions. There are some that specialize in certain brands and some that sell all brands.
There are small appliance shops though scattered around the city so you don’t necessarily have to go to Gorgi to find them. Sometimes it’s wiser to buy all of the appliances at the same shop as the owners will often give you a discount for a larger purchase.
Be sure to ask about the guarantees or warranties for the brand that you choose. We have found that there is often quite a variety in terms of length of warranties depending on the brand. It may be worth paying a bit more if it means that your appliance is under warranty.
BRINGING YOUR OWN APPLIANCES
One option is to import your own appliances. It is possible to ship a container to Libya allowing you to bring your own items from home. The down side to this is the cost and hassle of arranging to get your items loaded into a container and taken to your nearest port. There is also the risk that something will be damaged while in transit. Be sure to note as well that the electricity here is 220 voltage! The up side is that you have your own appliances that you are used to using and that you know are reliable.
