As soon as the warranty runs out, the problems start…

As always seems to be the case with anything around the home, whether it’s the TV, the washing machine or the dishwasher, everything seems to be working perfectly until you’re no longer covered.

When things do start to go wrong what choices do you have? Well, firstly there’s buying a replacement but this is often an expensive option, especially if the appliance is only a couple of years old. Plus, this is unlikely to be many peoples first choice given the current economic downturn and the global concern with decreasing your carbon footprints.

(Piggy says “Unfortunately going back to the retailer to arrange a repair may save your carbon footprint but in most cases is not a cost effective option.  The majority of manufacturers still routinely charge hefty call-out fees with additional charges for parts on top.”)

Thankfully there is another, more frugal, option available. One way of saving money when it comes to home repairs is to opt for a fixed price repair. The recently launched home repair service from http://www.repaircare.co.uk offers repairs on most domestic appliances including washing machines, fridges, freezers and extractor fans for a fixed fee. Prices range from £70 to £150, depending on the appliance type and brand, and include call out, evaluation, labour, parts if required and a professional safety check.

Fixed priced services enable the lifespan of domestic appliances to be expanded beyond the warranty period and are a great way to save money and take the hassle out of appliance faults. Repaircare offers an easy to use service with simple online booking available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Learn more at http://www.repaircare co.uk
