Start a Domestic / Household Appliance Repair Service

Technology has stepped forward so far that it is really difficult to imagine at least one apartment without a lot of household items. And even the most modern and expensive of them are prone to breakage. This determines the ever-growing relevance of the services of masters in repair of equipment.

The truth is, many people cannot afford to buy new stoves, microwaves, TVs when it breaks.

If you are well versed in electrical appliances and watch out for new products and ways to fix them, then starting a household appliance repair service might be a great opportunity for you!

Tools needed:

At the initial stages of the business, you can start a business with almost no investment, that is, without renting a room.

In this case, you will need some tools though. Some of them are:

  • screwdrivers;
  • wrenches;
  • mandrels and hand presses;
  • a soldering iron;
  • a soldering wire;
  • a voltage tester or a AC voltage detector pen;

And other consumables like adhesives, sealants, work gloves. By the way, it’s highly recommended to purchase fingerless kevlar gloves.

Earning potential:

As for the profitability of this business idea, it will fully depend on two factors:

  • the number of orders received;
  • the complexity of their implementation.

Marketing ideas:

When the refrigerator or washing machine breaks down, people don’t spend a lot of time looking for the best services. They are in a hurry and want to quickly resolve the issue.

So, you must be a well-known specialist in your area.

Use this old wisdom: “While it is fine weather mend your sails!”

Try local newspaper advertising on a regular basis, so that people could call you when they need your services.
