Modern life revolves around appliances; from the cell phone which seems to be effectively glued to many people’s hands, to the more mundane, but essential appliances such as your cooker, washing machine and even dishwasher. There is no doubt we have become dependent on a variety of appliances to help make our lives easier and free our time for more important things. However, no matter how well built an appliance is there will come a time when it breaks and you will need to consider using the services of a good appliance repair firm. The choices available to you will depend upon your location. For example, if you are based in Toronto you will benefit from calling Same Day Appliance Repair, this firm has been providing appliance repair services for years and has developed a large customer base and a solid reputation for good customer service. Perhaps even more importantly is the fact that this firm provides a repair person on the same day that you contact them and they will do their best to resolve the issue that day!
Purchasing a new appliance is expensive, it will arrive with a manufacturer’s warranty which should cover any issue in the first one to three years; unfortunately It does not always cover all the possible scenarios. However, once the warranty period has passed and you need the services of a good appliance repair firm you will need to decide whether it is worthwhile repairing the appliance or not.
The following advice will help you to choose the right path:
Most appliance repair firms will provide a free analysis of the issue and diagnose what is wrong with your appliance. They will then provide you with a quote for the cost of performing an appliance repair job. The first thing to consider is how this cost compares to purchasing a new machine; the closer it is to the cost of buying new the more likely you are to want to avoid the appliance repair and simply buy a new machine. It is even possible you will be offered a trade in package.
You will also need to consider the funds you have available to deal with an appliance repair. An alternative to repairing it can be purchasing a pre-owned machine but this can be a false economy if your second hand purchase does not turn out to be reliable. You may also find that a new appliance can be purchased on finance and spreading the cost will be more affordable. It is also possible that the appliance repair firm will offer a similar package to cover repairs throughout the year.
Issues to date
Finally, you will want to consider how many problems you have already had with your appliance. If this is the first then it is probably worthwhile paying to have it repaired. However, if your appliance has started to develop a pattern of needing repairs then it may be telling you that it is time to look at purchasing a new one!
