The working mom’s life is very busy and can be hard at times. Life comes with many challenges both at home and at the workplace. The best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to be prepared for when an appliance disaster strikes. We all know its not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Most likely it will be at the worst of times too, so finding the right appliance repair company is very important for the working mom. An appliance repair company that is trustworthy, affordable, reliable, and friendly is key.
Some household emergencies that can come up in a working mom’s life are children getting sick, pets falling ill, and household laundry and kitchen appliances (clothes dryers, ovens, or refrigerators, etc.) break. How do you handle these situations? Where do you go? Who do you call that you know you can depend on and that you can trust?
One of the ways to manage any emergency is to have a contact list of specialized doctors for your children, veterinarians for your pets, and to have reliable repairmen who are trustworthy, knowledgeable, and efficient for appliances.
How Working Moms Choose The Perfect Appliance Repairman
- Do you choose a family-owned or a large appliance repair company? There are advantages and disadvantages to both. In deciding which is right for you. With a smaller family-owned company you will be dealing with the same people whom you can build trust with and who will get to know your specific appliances. With a larger company, they might be a little cheaper, but you probably won’t see that repairman again. Also, will the quality of service suffer since they are on a tighter schedule?
- Talk to neighbors, family, and friends on their experiences with their repairman. It is always better to ask people you know than listen to complete strangers (some of which are even fake) online. They surely have had good and bad experiences in dealing with various appliance repair companies, so I’m sure they would glad share their experiences with you. You can use that information as a starting point in choosing the right appliance repair company for you.
- Search local appliance repair companies online & check out reputable review sites. Everyone has a website nowadays, if they don’t, that’s a red flag to move onto the next company. See how long they have been in business and if they have a good standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Find out what their policy is on labor guarantees and part warranties.
- What are their hours? Appliance malfunctions and water leaks happen when you least expect them, so shouldn’t your repairman be available for these emergencies 24/7? Check to see if that company charges a higher rate outside certain business hours, holidays, and weekends.
After researching your options, getting recommendations, and checking into the repair company’s reputation, make the call and schedule a checkup (routine maintenance) with your top pick that you feel is best suited for your needs. If they prove themselves worthy and do a good job, then save that emergency contact. We recommend you at least have 2-3 repairmen as a backup plan, because working moms like you must be prepared at all times.
