Be Savvy About Repair Service
The truth is, there are many repair service companies that will try to scam you. Here's how to avoid the trouble.

"Fix-it fraudsters," as they are called, will ask for payment in advance and then buy materials for cheap in order to pocket the leftover money. But a legitimate repair service will have credit lines with local suppliers so you don't get charged a dime until your repair job is complete.

Also, watch out for any technician that asks to take your appliance away for repairs. Nowadays virtually all appliances can be fixed in-home so there's never a good reason for your appliance to leave your house.

Remember, when it comes to hiring a repair service, being a little bit savvy can save you money and a lot of headaches. Looking out for these red flags will get your appliance repaired, without doing damage to your savings.
