When it comes to in-home appliance repair, you want an expert and a company that fixes multiple types of appliances. You also want a company that can fix various brands.
For instance, if you are looking for dishwasher repair services and you own a GE or Kenmore, be sure that the service you hire offers GE dishwasher repair or Kenmore dishwasher maintenance. Be sure to ask. Don’t get ahead of yourself, there are some steps to take before you even pick up the phone.
Your search should begin with some criteria. Can they fix the brand you have? Do they stand behind their work? Can you find customer testimonials? Do they have a Better Business Bureau listing? You may also want to check for a listing on a consumer review site.
Before you call an appliance repair service, call your friends, family, or anyone you know that may have needed to have something repaired. Ask for recommendations. If you can’t think of anyone to call, try your local real estate agent. Not to sell your house, but to ask for recommendations.
If your house is under warranty you should check to see if the appliance that needs repaired is covered under your policy. If you are a renter, your job should be easy. Call the homeowner and let them handle it. Unless of course the appliances were yours to begin with.
It is a good idea to look at how long a repair service or individual has been in business. Don’t be shy, ask what training they have. Have they been factory certified for a specific brand? It is also important to ask if they will give you an upfront estimate and will they give it to you in writing.
Shop around, it is advisable to talk to more than one repair service. Ask questions directed at your needs, whether it is dishwasher repair, electric oven repair, or some other appliance.
There are services that may be listed as maintenance services rather than repair services. There really shouldn’t be any difference between the two.
If you are still having a difficult time narrowing down your choices, try searching with keywords that can help you find what you need. Using a search engine website, look for things like electric oven repair in Dallas or freezer maintenance Dallas TX. Whatever appliance it is you are looking to repair can be typed into a search engine to get you the results you are looking for.
Try not to base your entire decision on price. Getting a good price and a terrible repair that leaves you with a broken appliance a week later is not a bargain. With the right research you are sure to find an appliance repair service that fits your budget and gets the job done right.
