SERVICE CALL FEE:
The service call fee is the price to examine and diagnose problem(s) with one appliance based on the symptoms the appliance is having, and provide a written estimate with parts (if needed) and labor to repair / service the issue(s).
WE CHARGE A SEPARATE SERVICE CALL FEE FOR EACH APPLIANCE WE EXAMINE AND DIAGNOSE. THE SERVICE CALL FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE. THE SERVICE CALL FEE SHALL BE COLLECTED FROM THE CUSTOMER PRIOR TO, OR AT THE TIME OF THE INITIAL VISIT.
We collect payment upon completion of the job we might require a deposit if repairs require a part order the deposited amount and service call will apply toward the repair.
Our appointments have a 3 hour window. All appointments are set based on the earliest availability. Part installation appointments are not scheduled until the parts have arrived.
Based on the problem(s) the customer describes and upon examination, our company licensed technician will determine what repair needs necessary to resolve the problem(s). Full access to the unit must be provided by the customer. In case access to the unit is not provided by the customer, additional fees may apply for the labor performed to access the unit.
Due to the complexity of some appliances there can be additional underlying problems that cannot be determined until an “initial repair” is made. In the event an appliance has an underlying problem(s) an additional free diagnosis along with an additional revised estimate will be provided.
If the technician arrives and no problem is present, it will be considered as a diagnosis of “No problem found” or “Working as designed”. The customer Shall responsible for the service call fee.
If the problem is caused, or possibly caused by a source other than the appliance itself, the technician may recommend an examination by an outside trade contractor to confirm or rule out the possible cause or problem. The customer is fully responsible for any expenses, cost and payment for any examinations or services performed by outside trade contractors.
Any recommendation(s) made by our company are not mandatory, and any actions taken by the customer are at the sole discretion and financial responsibility of the customer.
Any estimate provided is based on Modern Appliance Repair prices to repair/service the appliance. An estimate is valid for 7 days.

The customer signature indicates approval and complete agreement with having the repair performed at the price quoted.
In cases where additional research is required we will provide a completed estimate within 48 hours of the initial date of visit. In the event additional parts are needed or part pricing has changed, a revised estimate will be provided for approval.
Down payment/Pre-pay: A portion of the approved estimate may be collected at the time of the service call.

This is determined and based on company operating expenses, technical skill/knowledge, technical training and certifications.
