Very pleased with Corina. She had to order a part for my refrigerator and to my surprise it was delivered the next day. On her return visit she repaired my refrigerator. I am impressed that Fred's has a training facility.
I never knew that. I am telling all my friends about this and recommending Fred's. Thank you.
What goes into the cost of our service call and diagnostics?
The purchase and maintenance of each technician’s van, including insurance and taxes.
Until Tesla releases a service van, we have to continue using gasoline for our vans.
From simple wrenches to vacuum pumps, we need to have the proper tools on hand to get it right the first time.
We keep parts in our van that are prone to needing replaced during the average appliance lifespan.
We take great care to protect your home while we are visiting but unintended mistakes can occur. When we are at fault, we want to make sure you are protected.
Our technicians use the industry’s latest tablet/smart phone technology from technician tracking to a paperless work environment.
Health and Retirement plans for each technician. Paid vacation and sick leave.
TAXES & LEGAL
As a small business, we still require professional accountants to ensure we stay within the tax codes. Also we require legal council for any large business transaction.
Includes website and mobile website. Social media presence and blogging. Survey management. Ensures better communication with our customers that allows us to make continued improvements.
Desk, computers, phone system, high-speed internet and the software that manages different aspects of the business.
Our technicians dispatch from their home, but our office employees, who answer your calls and manage the technician’s day, need a dedicated environment to work together.
