THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
At Appliance Mechanics, we are very focused on the experience for our customer. When a residential appliance is broken and out of service, it is more than just an inconvenience. Because, let’s face it, our appliances are apart of our family, of our daily process! We don’t realize just how much we utilize our appliances until they’re not functioning properly.
A unique facet of Appliance Mechanics are the types of Washington State electrical certifications we possess that many appliance companies do not. These certifications allow us to service hardwired appliances (e.g. dishwashers). Because when a customer calls, we don’t want to tell them we can only meet SOME of their needs.
In addition, we provide each customer with a 2-hour window in which to expect a Service Technician. No more waiting around all day for your service. We make sure that your schedule doesn’t suffer alongside your appliance.
When you call Appliance Mechanics, we make it our responsibility to help your daily family process get back on track by providing your family of appliances with just the right amount of TLC. And we are committed to doing so in a timely manner so your life doesn’t have to skip a beat.
Owner/Operator & Senior Technician
OLIVER leaves a great impression with customers allowing them to feel comfortable with our business knowing that we will do our best to take care of them and their appliance.
One of Oliver’s characteristics that customers frequently comment on is his level of patience. Although not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about appliance service, it has become a big part of what sets Oliver and the Appliance Mechanics Team apart. While on-site, many of the the appliances need to be called into manufacturer tech support and the subsequent service process can become very labor-intensive. Oliver possess the patience to not only see every service call and job through to completion, he takes the time to ensure that each customer had a clear understanding of the process, the cost and the quality of workmanship they can expect.

LUKE is a very “real” person. He knows how to listen with the intent to hear our customers and their concerns. He is thorough, efficient and a great communicator. And, even though they prefer that their appliance wasn’t broken in the first place, customers have stated over and over how Luke feels just like family and they are always glad to welcome him into their home. Part of the reason for that is how consistent Luke is at ensuring the customer is aware of the service details…IN detail.
Luke keeps most parts in stock right on his van to be able to complete the job on the first visit rather than having to order parts and come back out another time to install parts. He’s diligent and very determined to repair the appliance on that first visit. And when necessary, he will advise customers when the cost of repair will exceed the value of the appliance. He may even suggest investing in a new appliance.
Luke is determined to complete jobs in a timely and organized manner. His confidence in his abilities is proven daily by successful service and grateful customers.

We don’t charge an hourly rate like a plumber or electrician. Instead, we use a Per Job Rate. Every home and circumstances are different, so this allows us to quote you an exact price, up front, after diagnosis, before any work is performed.
Our service charge is $115 plus tax for most brands. This includes our trip to your home and the diagnosis of your problem. After the diagnosis is completed, you will receive a quote that will be the estimated cost of repair. If you decide to complete the repair, the trip charge is included and factored in as a component of the estimated cost price. The total price is calculated as trip charge + parts + labor + tax.
*Apartment buildings, large complexes, boats, RV’s or any type of property that is difficult or time-consuming to access may have an additional charge.
All our repairs are backed by a 1 YEAR guarantee on parts and 90 DAYS on labor. For residential machines used in commercial settings, the guarantee is 30 days.
* Pertaining to in-warranty coverages the manufacturer warranty may apply or supersede our guarantee
We accept cash, credit/debit cards and checks . We will process your card payment on the spot using a merchant. We do not store your card numbers.
We do not use an invoicing service, so we request that payment is made when the job is complete.
*Exception- Property management companies pre-qualified for Net terms.
Diagnosis is something that can only be done in person, diagnosing is the first step in determining the price of a repair. There are far too many variables to be able to provide an accurate diagnosis or price over the phone. We want to be sure we are providing accurate information and for this reason, it is our policy to only quote a price once one of our technicians has diagnosed your problem in person.
Our focus is appliance repair, currently we do not sell new or used appliances. For our customers who decide not to repair their appliance or if their appliance is beyond repair, we can refer a local appliance dealer at customers’ request.
