After getting the education you need to get started in the appliance repair industry, you have an array of options to choose from, such as residential work, commercial work, or being self-employed.
While there are a number of benefits to being employed by a company, such as stability, you should also consider the opportunities you have as a self-employed individual.
Minimal Startup Costs
Since most appliance repair work involves going to the homes of your customers, you do not have to worry about providing a legitimate work or office space. For this reason, the startup costs are quite minimal, especially when you consider that a working truck or van should be fine for transportation.
Aside from a vehicle, your main expenses are the equipment you plan on using, which should be high in quality as you do not want your tools being something that holds you back from performing.
Get Creative with Work
Although some individuals may think their only business option is to provide appliance repair, there are multiple ways you can go about generating income after appliance technician training.
For instance, it is possible to find homeowners that are getting rid of their broken appliances or selling the old ones they are replacing, and you can be the one to pick them up or buy them, repair them, and sell them to local individuals that are looking for an affordable appliance.
Service Certain Appliances
If you want to specialize in certain appliances, or even certain rooms such as a kitchen or laundry room, you can do this because you get to make the final decisions as your own boss.
Getting into the appliance repair industry is great for the versatility it provides.
