Some people just have the knack for fixing electronic equipment. You might have that talent. Maybe neighbours, friends and relatives are always coming to you to ask you to repair their broken coffeemaker, a malfunctioning toaster, or a dish washer that has stopped working. Maybe you were born with high aptitude for understanding how mechanical things work. Or you might have acquired the skill by working as a technician for an appliance center or an established repair shop. If you are an expert at getting people’s broken or dead appliances back into working condition, a repair shop is one business you can start. One of the many servicing businesses that you can operate is a dryer repair business.

Dryer Repair Shop Startup Needs

You don’t really need to open a storefront for your repair shop. You can start it at home or online. What you need is just a communication system – a computer and a telephone so that people who need your services can contact you. Since it would be impractical to transport dryers, you have to do the servicing at clients’ homes. This way, you don’t have to pay rent for a store space and you can do other repair services or work on something else when not on call.

For this, you need to advertise about your business a lot so that others may know they can call on you when their dryer won’t heat, won’t close or would exhibit any sign of malfunctioning. Set up signages, give out flyers and business cards, and tell your friends you are operating this business and ask them to spread the news to their friends. So that they could know you better even though you are not there to entertain them, have a presence online. If you are not an expert in this, ask or hire someone to do it for you.

Getting Clients for a Dryer Repair Shop

Personal referral especially in the business of servicing is very powerful. So make sure you are making the right impression not just on the first meeting but every time you are doing a job for a client. Be courteous and respectful. Answer all questions carefully and tactfully – even the simplest ones for those who have zero comprehension about how their dryer works. Give free advices on how people can properly care for their equipment. You may think it is detrimental to the business if people are taking proper care of their dryers and not needing servicemen at all. However, if they are impressed with your service, be assured there will be job calls to follow. These satisfied customers will be telling their friends and the friends of their friends.
