I am currently self employed, but have been seriously considering getting into the appliance repair trade. Of course, I would keep my other work lined up, and offer the appliance repair as either an "add on", or a completely separate identity, all depending on how well this venture grows. The reason why I have investigated this type of work is because we only have 2 companies that service our area, and one of those is Sears. I can definitely see a need for appliance tech's, but getting over the hurdle of convincing a customer that it is better to repair, than replace constantly is my biggest concern............In any case, I would love to jump on the Forum where I can learn even more, and discuss some of my concerns. Please add me to the list.
