Did you know how many Americans are employed in the appliance repair industry? IBIS World research estimates that 50,467 appliance maintenance companies employ nearly 72,800 people. Of course, not all of those folks who work for appliance repair services actually do the repairs, because considerable training is required to become expert in refrigerator, dishwasher, dryer, and washing machine repair. Besides, somebody has to answer the phones.
Despite being called “commercial appliance repair” or “small appliance repair” services, appliance repair services do more than washing machine repairs. In addition to repairing appliances, the typical appliance maintenance company sells and buys new, used, and refurbished kitchen and laundry appliances.
If you have ever replaced an older washer, dryer, stove, or refrigerator, the delivery people probably gave you the option to keep your old appliance or to have them haul it away. As a matter of convenience, many appliance customers are happy to let the company take their older appliances of their hands. Although “haulaways” are particularly common with the oldest, worn, and beaten appliances, you would be surprised to see how many decent appliances people get rid of simply to make room for a bigger, sleeker, or more efficient replacement.
What do you think that appliance companies do with their customers’ unwanted kitchen and laundry appliances? Well, those decisions are made on an appliance to appliance basis. Appliances that still run well are oftentimes sold to wholesale appliance stores, where they are refurbished and resold at deep discounts. The oldest appliances are either fished for parts, or sold for scrap metal. Basically, very rarely do any appliances end up in dumps or landfills before they have been thoroughly scavenged for parts.
The bottom line is that your local appliance company can offer you a lot more than washing machine repair. If you are looking for a new appliance, refurbished appliance, or maintenance from your huge chrome double-door refrigerator, a full-service appliance repair service might be able to help.
