The national average cost is $100 – $150+
The average cost to hire a local professional will average about $100-$150, with some consumers spending over $500 or more. So choosing the right professional the first time is of the essence.
Repair services are normally billed for on hourly basis. Average hourly rates for the first half an hour could vary between $100- $150. Sometimes based on the complexity of the job, the rate will vary. This will usually adjust in benefit of the client as then, the duration of time taken for repair is not of importance. The person will not be anxious about being charged too much.
When calling your repair service, bear in mind that “After Hour Calls” – thats calls taken after business hours, on holidays, and on weekends, will naturally cost you extra. In fact, charges might even be as much as 25% over. Thus, take this into account. If the repair is not an emergency, calling for an urgent ‘after hours repair’ is not a very smart idea.
Remember, the company quoting a low rate may not necessarily be the right company for you. Some companies may offer low hourly rates, but then charge additional “fees” to complete the job.
You may also need to consider that most companies charge a higher rate for overtime, weekends, holidays and emergency calls.
The best rule of hand is to get an itemized estimate so you know exactly what is expected from the local company.

Benefits Of Hiring An Appliance Repair Service.
More often than not, repair cost less than buying a new model.
If you search for a high quality local repair man, chances are that you will receive a much speedier service. Shopping for household appliances can be a very drawn out process, you will need to find a reasonable quality model, try to get the best price and finally have it delivered.
It’s Done For You.
How does it feel whenever you know something is being dealt with and you don’t have to lift a finger? It is much more reassuring to know that no extra effort will be required on your part and you can get on with your day.
Unfortunately, household appliances have become much more technological and more difficult to fix. Unless you know what you are doing and are sure you can fix it, it is safer to call a professional.
The Problem Will Be Resolved.
A technician will know when he calls out, how to best deal with the issue. You will then know whether you should buy a new appliance or have it mended. Either way, at least the problem will be resolved.
