25% of front-loading washing machines, 20% of dishwashers and 36% of side-by-side refrigerators with icemakers break down within three to four years of purchase.
Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
In an attempt to make appliance repair in Virginia more affordable and budget-friendly, Discount Appliance Repair is offering $36 off any completed repair project. The offer is limited to one discount per customer and cannot be combined with any other offers.
“We get many calls from customers who attempted a do-it-yourself repair before they finally agreed to accept a help of a professional repairman,” shared Amjad Jamil, the owner of Discount Appliance Repair.
He added that he’s hoping the new special offer will encourage people to skip the DIY stage, thus avoiding unnecessary stress and frustration caused by the inability to fix a seemingly simple problem.
According to the 2011 Consumer Reports Repair or Replace customer survey, 25 percent of front-loading washing machines, 20 percent of dishwashers and 36 percent of side-by-side refrigerators with icemakers break down within three to four years of purchase and typically after the standard warranty has expired.
“Appliance repair is not as simple as it used to be: modern appliances offer more customization and, therefore, more moving parts and electronic components,” commented Jamil. He added that this complexity of modern appliances not only causes them to malfunction more often, but also makes appliance repair a very delicate operation.
Jamil encourages Virginia homeowners to let professionals handle their appliance repair in Fairfax, Va., and surrounding areas, and always be on a lookout for dishonest repair companies.
Better Business Bureau has recently issued an alert about Nations Appliance Repair, a suspicious appliance repair company that is known to overcharge, ask for upfront fees, refuse refunds and ignore customer complaints.
Nations Appliance Repair operates under several different names and poses as a local company in a few states from Cincinnati to Texas and Florida. “We want our customers to be aware of scams and always do a thorough research on a company before doing business with them,” warned Jamil.
