Your fridge stops cooling the night before you're hosting a major event at your home.
Your washing machine won't stop leaking, and it's flooding your laundry room.
The oven in your restaurant kitchen isn't cooking to the right temperature, which means guests keep sending food back.
You need a dryer repair now as your restaurant tableclothes are washed but not dry
Whether you are a homeowner or the owner or manager of a business, there are myriad reasons why you might need an appliance fixed as soon as possible. So how can you find a company that can work with your accelerated schedule?
You probably know a number of different ways to locate an appliance repair professional. You might call friends or fellow business owners for recommendations. You might flip open the phone book to see who's nearby. Or you might go online and search for appliance repair companies in your area.
Whatever method you use, if you want the fastest service possible, look for a few key characteristics.
The most obvious sign that a company can meet your turnaround time needs is if they proudly advertise same-day or next day service. Same-day and next-day service mean just that: a technician will be out to your property either the day you placed a call or the next day to begin the repair process. Be aware, however, that same-day service doesn't necessarily mean your problem is guaranteed to be resolved that same day.
A company that advertises 24/7 or emergency appliance repair service is promising to get to you as soon as possible not only during business hours, but outside of business hours, as well. So you don't have to fret about waiting until office hours to get your appliances repaired.
Proximity to You
It might seem obvious, but the closer an appliance repair company is to you, the sooner a technician can get to your home or business to begin repairs. Check the address before you call, and if it's not a location you're familiar with, plug it into an online map to get a sense of the area.
Size of Repair Team
Depending on your area, a one-man appliance repair operation might be more likely to be completely booked up than a company with multiple technicians. Look for companies that openly say they have many different experts that can fix any appliance. Any website that uses "I" more than "we" should be avoided. Its likely to be a single individual rather than a company.
