“Though hiring an appliance repair service technician is a straightforward process, it’s common to make some mistakes. Spotting red flags before hiring someone can help save you a lot of money and frustration down the line. Here are some red flags to look out for:
- Lowest price offered: while there are no standards for appliance repair costs, you still want to find someone who’s between the average price, not low. The average fridge repair cost is between $200 and $300.
- Poor customer service: never undervalue customer service. Having a designated phone contact you can reach out to in case of emergencies, changes of schedules or complaints after the service are part of choosing the right company.
- No references: hiring someone before talking to them or meeting with them can be a mistake. Ideally, you want to reference a friend or neighbor and get a bit more information about the person.”
