Seems a little arrogant to question an entire industry. After all, the electrical repair industry has been around for decades, so why on earth question why such services need to exist? Why ask if modern electrician repairing services need to exist? There are actually several reasons why modern repair services are becoming less profitable. Here are a few of those reasons.
Modern Electronics Are Manufacturer Specific and Sealed
It is not like the old days when your VCR broke and the repair person would come around with his or her special tools, open it up, fix it and you were all done. These days, it is very difficult to get into a product without breaking it. In fact, these days, your warranty is void if you allow a repair person to try to fix your device. Since more and more manufacturers are doing this sort of thing, it is easy to see why some repair companies are having a harder time finding clients.
Sending Items Back For Repair or Replacement
Many electronic items are sealed in a way that only the manufacturer can get inside. But, even when that is not the case, manufacturers often want you to send your item to them. They want to get their hands on it rather than having you hire a third-party repair person. With that in mind, modern electrical repair services are having a harder time finding clients because people are being told to send their items back for repair or replacements.
What About Installed Electronics?
The sad part is that many installed electronics are also being dominated by manufacturers. For example, there are types of air conditioners where the manufacturers are the only ones “Qualified” to fix the device. If you think about it, this sort of behavior is very anti-consumer. It means that a nefarious company could make an inferior product, have it installed at a cheap price, and then start charging you a lot of money for repairs. In a perfect world, modern electronics wouldn’t fail at all, but if they are going to fail, it is only fair that repairpersons are able to fix them.
Some Items Will Always Need Fixing
The truth is that some items are easier to fix than they are to send back and replace. For example, if you buy a phone and it doesn’t work, then sending it back is probably easier than hiring a repair person. Ergo, if your phone breaks, the manufacturer asks you to send it back for repairs. But, what if your spin dryer needs repairs? The $45 it takes to send it off and then the $45 it costs to send back is more than if you had paid an electrician repairing service.
That is why things like spin dryers are often easy to open and easy for repairers to fix. Sure, there may be a part or two that the repairer can only buy from the manufacturer, but in terms of ease, it is easier for repairers to come to your house and fix it, ergo there is still a need for companies like USA Electrical Repairs. People still want high-quality repair companies, and that is exactly what USA Electrical Repairs offers.
