About Us

First class products & first class customer service

Elite Appliances Hobart isn’t just about good customer service – it’s about first class customer service! This is something we believe should never stop, even after the sale, so we go further to help our clients than anyone else in our market.

A visit to our state-of-the-art Hobart showroom will leave you up to date on all the latest products and leave you feeling comfortable on the purchases you have made. We also guarantee our prices to be the best and lowest, wherever possible, and back this up with our Price Promise. If you purchase from us and find the item cheaper elsewhere within 14 days, our Price Promise states that we will refund the difference.

Elite Appliances are a Tasmanian-owned and operated company and feel it is important to offer our services to the entire state. As a result we offer premium state-wide delivery service on a statewide basis (dependent on local couriers).

Elite Appliances (Hobart) P/L was opened in November 1999, by Ned Banovich. Ned saw the need for a more premium offer in the Tasmanian market for appliances and bathroomware and with over 4 decades industry experience, it was the time for something new.

Initially starting with only 3 staff, the store now employs 12 people as of July 2021. The business originally commenced in partnership with Elite Appliances in Victoria, as an independent and informal buying group, but Hobart soon outgrew this.

In 2012 Elite moved to become part of the NARTA (National Associated Retail Traders of Australia) buying group. This was overseen and initiated by Mark Banovich as Managing Director. This added the national buying power to get our clients the best price possible and extend the range we could offer.

In 2018 Elite made the move to become part of the BSR buying group, while still operating under the NARTA banner. The BSR Group saw the need to develop a premium offering within their portfolio of brands and decided to launch the Designer Appliances (DA) group, of which Elite Appliances was an initial member.

Elite Appliances is a family-owned business with roots firmly imbedded in the Tasmanian community and is committed to bringing the very best products to Tasmanians with the most competitive prices possible.
