When it’s time to shop for a new vacuum, you may have a hard time choosing between Oreck and Hoover because both produce models of such fine quality. As of yesterday, the lines between Oreck and Hoover have blurred just a bit! While your favorite Oreck vacuum models won’t be disappearing off the market, the company is now owned by Royal Appliance Manufacturing Co., the same company that makes Hoover vacuum models.
This may not seem like much to the average vacuum shopper, but here at GoVacuum.com, we find this news pretty amazing. It’s like Batman suddenly deciding to adopt Superman, or Coke and Pepsi being all one company!
Oreck was up for sale at auction because the family that started the company filed for bankruptcy in May of this year. Although Oreck is a highly successful company that makes great products, the Orecks made the move in a bid to try and keep the manufacturing operations of the company here in the United States. Labor costs and other financial burdens on the corporation meant there was no choice but to file for Chapter 11. The family had hoped to buy back their company, but understanding just what a great brand Oreck is, Royal snatched it up.
The good news is that it appears the U.S.-based manufacturing of Oreck vacuums will continue, and the brand will continue to be produced independently. You can be sure that GoVacuum.com will keep on stocking Hoover parts, Oreck parts, Hoover vacuums and Oreck vacuums going forward! You can check out selection of Oreck and Hoover parts and vacuum cleaners over at our discount website.
Did you know Royal is the company that makes Dirt Devil too? Not only that, but the parent company to all these companies is the same company that makes Home Depot Ryobi power tools!
Okay, I get informed by big boss man yesterday, I would have to attend a product launch from a leading vacuum company last night. Grrrrrr… this would effect my hectic work schedule, but he informed me there would be an open bar and free food, two of my favorite things, so I was happy to go!
Just as I finished up my 11th piece of salmon and capping off my second bottle of red grape juice, I was informed by that said boss man, he wanted to “increase my duties” at the company…. :(
No… No… NOOOOOOOOO!!! I’ve worked hard to get to this point of slacker and he wants to ruin that with work? Before I could react, he asked me if I knew what a daily deal was. I tried to pretend my hearing aid battery was low, but he knew I had just replaced them, because we had a conversation about them a day before, as he suggested I should get rechargeable vacuum batteries to use in them (I said he was scary looking, never funny).
He wasn’t buying it, he told me I need to start a daily deal section of our website and everyday I would need to offer a new discounted vacuum deal. Needless to say, that third bottle of juice was finished off rather quickly. What could I do? I felt deceived, but no one else will hire me sit in a hammock and blog all day, so I’m left with no other choice, but to say… without further delay. Drum Roll Please…. Introducing GoVacuum Daily Deals!
Everyday yours truly will have one of the GoVacuum misfits rummage thru our warehouse and find a product we have too many of, then I’ll go ahead and write something witty about it and come up with a huge discount off the regular price (Woot rip off much?).
A lot of items we’ll take a loss on, but it’s better then paying rent stocking these items in our warehouse. Some items will be vacuum cleaners that are new in the box, some will be returned open box returns that are in like new condition with fully warranties, some might be robotic vacuums or whatever we might find in the warehouse!
The good news for you, our customers is you will have savings as high as 90% off the regular price! Just check our website everyday to see what’s being offered, but buy quickly and think later! Daily Deals will be limited in quantity and you have 30-60 days to return them and we even pay shipping both ways! Just buy the items and if you don’t like them return them, zero risk or cost to you! My theory is if enough people buy stuff to try it out then return it, our daily deals will make use loose so much money he will stop the daily deals and I can get back to slacking! :) The bad news for me, is now I currently have to work between Jerry Springer and Maurry… :(
Excludes Miele products. Think I can turn this in to a “weekly deal” instead? Have an idea about how I can get out of doing work? Email me: email@example.com
So… after the great earthquake shook us just outside the nations capitol in Virginia, Hurricane Irene decided she would make an appearance (The striking of both at the same time shall be known as a QuakeAcane from now on).
We got some pretty good rain and a lot of wind, but we can’t complain as no one in the GoVacuum family was hurt or got flooded. There is damage around the area (checkout the neighbors new car across the street from my parents house about 40 miles away), but the worst we got here at the GoVacuum World Headquarters was a lake outside the office which is suppose to be a “drainage system”.
Hurricane Irene was not a joke, many people have died and lost their homes. We are very blessed that we didn’t get the worst of it. Due to the damage and flooding, we have had a huge increase in extractor sales and have place one of our best selling Royal 7910 extractor on sale at $100 off & 10% off the sale price (use coupon code royal10) to help in the clean up.
In an effort to always try and look at the bright side and turn a negative into a positive, I took home a very cool product to play with last night! Yes, maybe I’m still that 16 year old kid who works at KB Toys, who is just happy because I got to play all day at work (somethings never change), but this toy is awesomely cool by everyone’s standards!
Here is how my night went down, I got home and took it out of the box, it was only then I discovered how radical this robot is! It… it’s… it’s got a wireless remote control!
I was instantly taken back to a time when I raced my Tyco Zero Gravity tack cars and my Tyco Turbo Hoppers!
Yes, I was reminded of a younger youth, but now I’m older and my toys are much cooler. I mean the Irobot Looj 125 has tank tracks on the bottom nothing from the late 80′s had that, did it? I placed the little Looj on the floor and started it up. It zipped across my floor and the front auger that was spinning at 500 rpm’s slapped and smacked the tile. My eyes lit up and I immediately ran (yes, I actually ran) to the shed to grab a ladder.
As I placed the ladder up on the gutter I thought to myself, I don’t know if it will actually clean the gutter really well as we just had a little taste of hurricane Irene and the leaves are wet. Nonetheless, I zipped up the steps and cleared out about a two foot section of leaves, then I lowered down the Looj and grabbed the remote (this is where I will recommend not have the Looj aimed to cross under the ladder or you will end up covered in wet leaves and debris, not cool, but something I did).
After saying a few things that would cause my mom to grab a bar of soap to clean my mouth out, I proceeded to clean my face off. Then restarted the little Looj. I was in awe as I watched it crawl down the gutter. I can’t describe how cool this thing is! It’s like you are a coal miner tunneling for diamonds or coal. It’s just flat out FUN to use!
As a gutter cleaner this thing is fantastic! The front end flaps around and the leaves fall down and on the ground, I would buy it alone for the fact it works, that and my fingernails take forever to get the grime out of after gutter cleaning. I mean forget the fact it’s really cool! As an actual product the Looj is worth every penny!
The only problem was my gutters were cleaned in a couple of minutes. I was kinda disappointed that I had to stop playing with it… or did I?
Before I knew it I was racing it on the driveway, the farm cat and turkeys thought it was fun too! I tried to shoot a video, but it was dark out by that point, but here is the official video.
Ladies, wives, girlfriends, do yourself a favor… buy this for your man! He will leave you alone for hours playing with the new beloved toy and your gutters will be clean, all year around (just because it’s fun) and for just $129.95 how can you not buy it? It makes the perfect Birthday or Christmas gift… Just be warned of karma, for you might receive a vacuum as a gift on valentines day!
If you have a Looj and shot a cool video? Have a Irobot Looj 125 review? email it to me firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you want to buy one, or ask me any questions… email me! got an idea? Email Me!!! :)
