Facts About Service Costs

Cost of service call

Don't Judge Service Charges Solely By The Time Our Appliance Repair Technician Spends In Your Home Or Business

Without years of training, it would not be possible for a doctor to make a diagnosis and prescribe a remedy. Consider for a moment that it isn't just his initial training but an ongoing variety of continuing study, and the expense of maintaining an adequately equipped staff and office.

As a patient, you pay for his knowledge and skill plus a share of his business costs (overhead). Even if he spends only a few minutes with you.

This analogy holds true in any service business. The charge for providing appliance service in your home cannot be determined solely by the time it takes the technician to make repairs.

A qualified service organization's cost begin with the salary of the professional technician. This amount is the same whether the technician is actually making repairs on customer premises, traveling to keep service appointments or participating in training programs to sharpen his skills.

The cost of doing business (overhead) must be added to the technician's salary. These overhead costs can amount to substantially more than the technician's salary.

Now comes the profit. A 10% net profit on a job, although seldom realized, would be ideal. Accordingly, if your service charge is $200.00 and we are efficient enough to earn 10% of the $200.00, we earn 20 taxable dollars. We are sure you'll agree that is not excessive for providing top quality services on your premises.
All things considered, the cost to a service organization for its service technician's time on the job is the same whether he works with tools or not. A service call that results only in a diagnosis and estimate warrants a service charge.
