Hamden Consumers get Tips From Appliance Repair Expert on Choosing a Reputable Provider

Appliance breakdown can lead to increased stress and anxiety as the owner searches for a service provider who can offer a quick solution at a fair price

Hamden, CT – Appliance repair service technicians with Action Appliance Repair understand the stress and anxiety their customers experience when appliances breakdown. Appliance breakdown is difficult to prepare for in advance because there is usually little to no warning that an appliance is about to fail. The malfunction occurs while it is being used, leaving the owner with a job half completed.

For example, one may be multi-tasking, cleaning the house while dinner is cooking in the oven. As they check on the dinner, which should be nearly done, they discover the oven is cold. It was pre-heated, and the knob indicates the temperature is set correctly. Now dinner will not be done and the food may go bad. The stress and anxiety associated with the broken down appliance includes finding a reputable service provider, affording the fee and dealing with the inconvenience of the job half done.

Jay Miskin, owner of Action Appliance Repair advises consumers to do their homework before choosing an appliance repair service to work with. “It is important to choose an Appliance Repair service that is licensed and insured,” said Miskin. “Otherwise, you risk the expense and liability if they should do damage to your home or get injured on your property.”

A small, local appliance repair company may be cheaper to work with but they may also lack experience and knowledge of the latest technologies. A larger company with more technicians can rely on the combined knowledge of the team to resolve the problem.

Jay Miskin suggests checking out several appliance repair services before choosing one to work with. “There are some good internet sources containing reviews and ratings like City Search, ServiceMagic, Google Places and the Better Business Bureau,” said Miskin. “Consumers deserve quality service at a fair price and only a reputable company deserves their business, even if they don’t choose us.

Consumers who choose Action Appliance Repair will enjoy prompt service, a 5 year pro-rated warranty and 110% customer satisfaction. Their online scheduling allows consumers to request service and a technician calls them within 20 minutes to confirm the appointment. Learn more at http://www.appliancerepairhamden.com/

Appliance Repair Hamden - Getting Quality Service at a Fair Price

Appliance Repair Hamden CT: A Action Appliance Repair LLC gets the top rating year after year from satisfied customers all over the state. Owner, Jay Miskin believes consumers deserve professional service from reputable companies. At the same time, only the honest, dependable appliance repair technicians deserve your business!

Jay Miskin is happy to provide valuable information for consumers who are looking for a good appliance repair service, even if they do not choose A Action Appliance Repair. Here are some things to consider when hiring an appliance repair service:

Licensed, Insured, and Certified
The company should also be incorporated. You can check your local Secretary Of State for proof of a registered business. A home improvement contractor’s license is not usually required for appliance repair. In fact, most states do not recognize it as a home improvement. All businesses should have at least $1,000,000 liability, workers compensation, and vehicle insurance. If something were to happen to an uninsured worker, you could be on the hook for damages. Accidents do happen so the appliance repair company should be well insured to cover damages and injury to technicians. Also ask if the company sends their technicians for training on new products and if they are nationally certified.

Drug Testing and background checks
Nowadays, you can’t be too careful. Let’s face it; you are dealing with a working class group of people that you are going to let into your home. Have you ever heard the saying: “I trust you as far as I can throw you.” Or, “He looked so nice to me!”

Check review on the Web
There are several reviews and ratings that can be found on sites such as City Search, ServiceMagic and Google Places to name a few. For example, here is a link to the Better Business Bureau profile for A Action Appliance Repair.

Better Business Bureau
The Better Business Bureau is a great tool to find out how the company handles complaints. The amount of complains is not very important based on the call volume. For example, if a company such as A Action Appliance Repair LLC receives 3 complains in the thirty-six month reporting period for the BBB, you might be concerned; however, in the same time period they preformed 45,000 repairs. That would be one out of every 15,000 customers who had problems resolving their issues.

Level of training experience of the Technicians
Small companies may not have the time or resources to keep up with training on the most current models. A technician should have at least two years on the road to be considered a journeyman. An appliance repair company that has several technicians can rely on the combined knowledge of the team and that can go a long way in finding solutions for various problems. Any technician can fix 80% of the routine repairs. The other 20% of the jobs, separate the experts from the novices. Lack of skill will quickly put an appliance company out of business. Another issue in surviving the challenges of today’s business environment is financial training needed to ensure warranties are covered.

Who’s that knocking at my door?
When you hire an appliance repair company, you should feel comfortable with the appearance of the technician. The technician should call first before coming to your door, wear a uniform with the company’s logo and hand you a business card with their photograph. Their vehicle should clearly identify the appliance repair company that you are expecting service from.

Warranty on Appliance Repair Service
Most appliance repair companies offer either a 30 or 90 day warranty that should cover the house call and labor. Parts are typically covered under the manufacturer’s warranty for 90 days. Parts warranties used to be one to five years but unfortunately, they cut that time in 2005. When possible make sure the appliance repair company is using OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) replacement parts. If defects are discovered the manufacturer can initiate a nationwide recall and have their team of investigators and engineers determine what went wrong and come up with a solution. They also carry insurance in case the defective part causes a fire or results in severe damage. A Action Appliance Repair offers a one- year parts warranty and a limited pro-rated warranty for the second through fifth year.

Repair or Replace?
If your appliance is more than 20 years old it might make sense to purchase a new one unless there are extenuating circumstances such as you are planning on moving in the near future, you can’t afford to replace it, it is built in and would be hard to remove, it is in good shape and you could get 5 more years of service. You should repair your appliance if you like the way it looks and works because appliance repair service is usually far less than the purchase price of a new one.

In conclusion, if money is the only factor when making your hiring decisions, guess wisely and count your saved money, wasted time or wasted appliance. I have been burned too many times when dealing with both the manufacturer and a new business. My "spidey sense" tell me that a local established appliance repair business will listen and deliver what you need, which is hassle free honest appliance repair service. If you can find the local company in three places, Internet, Yellow pages, or you recognize them, it is a safe bet they know what they are doing.
