Highland, Michigan (PressExposure) March 30, 2011 -- With the economy what it is today, and with continued uncertainty, people are asking appliance repair servicemen for advice about repair verses replacement. Technicians are often put in the awkward spot of being asked to repair an appliance, when it would be best to replace the appliance.
Here are the guidelines of the "Repair it or Replace it" game. Dependable Services has had to walk away from several service calls. But, before the technician leaves, he educates the customer with the following advice:
Fix-it: If warranty still valid
Fix-it: If appliance is high-end product and has a good operating record
Nix-it: If appliance is more than eight years and has a history of break downs
Nix-it: If the repair cost is more than 50% of new appliance cost
Nix-it: If appliance warranty has expired, but not considered old, yet new technology equipment may make the Nix-it factor economically sound in the long-run
Nix-it: If appliance repair parts are hard to get or have a long waiting period
Nationally, the average percent that the appliance repair industry has grown is 50%. "Because the economy is in such bad shape, we know that people must cut back on expenses and save their money wherever they can and if a product can be repaired instead of replaced, then we will do everything possible for a feasible repair" offered Don Harris, CEO of Dependable Services. "So the customer will get an honest evaluation on each & every case."
