Appliance Service Calls
Posted 28 October 2005 - 03:25 PM
I've always had a bushy head of hair and I usually don't bother trimming my beard. So, this is how I used to look when I'd go out for a service call:
But I started thinking maybe I was scaring my customers. Little things, like I go up to the house and knock on the door and they'd answer with a shotgun in their hands. So, I figgered I better git me a hair cut and now I look like this:
And would you believe that when I go out on service calls, I still get people answering the door armed!? That's what I love about this bidness--there's just no telling what people will do!

I think that I am young for the trade, but I do see a future in this business, as long as I am willing to give the best service that I can at a price that is fair, to my customers and my competitors, I am not out to cut there throats, and hope that they will not cut mine, as thing progress in this industry, techs will be needed because the prices of appliances will do tho same thing that everything else is.....go up, and people will want the thing fixed as long as the repair is lower then the replacement.
I will say this though if you are thinking of getting into this business,
#1 you cant be thinking that you are going to become rich, you wont, you will make a living.
#2 You have got to be able to get along with all types of people, (Or at least be able to keep from strangling the ones that really need it.)
#3 Know when to cut your losses, when to tell someone that is really ragging you that you do not have to take abuse, pack your tools and leave.
#4 Sometimes you will run up on things that you do not understand, I am sure that not everyone has all of the answers all of the time, you may know it, but overlook the ovious, but never be to proud to ask for someone elses input, be it a tech line, or this forum.

Ok, now you're insulting me-- my background is in Agricultural Engineering; I was going to have a commercial poppy farm in Afghanistan with my old buddy, Moostafa. But, alas, the war with the Soviets and the ensuing take over by the Taliban killed those plans.
And with all the education you have in Electrical Engineering if the appliance repair business is such a bad idea then I wonder why a man of your calaber decides to do appliance repair as a business.
And I consider both appliance repair and licking urinals to be a huge step up from the Dilbert world of engineering.
