We’ve talked about this a bit before on the blog, but let’s go over some of the value propositions of a good appliance repair service.
To set the stage, people often don’t know who to trust or where to turn when something breaks down in their home. Certain kinds of anxiety go along with this. First, they may feel like they don’t know enough about what happened to know how broken something is – whether it can use a DIY fix or needs a professional touch.
They might also be worried about some stranger coming into their home. That’s a primal type of anxiety that must be addressed and considered.
With that in mind, you need three things from a good repair service.
You need people to show up on time at a very basic level. You need the scheduling to work well. People don’t have hours in the day to play catch-up when an initial scheduling error makes things fall through or when they can’t get any kind of real communication with the appliance repair company.
That drives a certain kind of frustration, which is really something to avoid – in this business or any business. When you think about it, it’s really all about honoring a social contract, and in some ways, it’s that simple.
Then you also need a professional person on site who knows what he or she is doing. There is complexity to many of these appliances. It’s not as easy as saying “if X happens, do Y.” There are fittings and springs, manual and automatic parts, and even a lot more computerization than 10 or 20 years ago.
So the bottom line is that expertise is the proof in the pudding. That said, people need to feel like a solution is in process or on the way. Otherwise, they’re not likely to rely on a company a second time.
Then, to address the point we made above, the people who come on-site need to be professional and understand the anxiety that property owners might have.
Yes, it’s important to get the thing fixed. But the relationship is broadly important, too, because it will determine whether or not that person is comfortable calling back when something else happens. It needs to be top of mind for a professional firm that this acumen and poise is at the heart of what they do and how they do it.
