When people today are buying an appliance product they are looking for added value. Special features, appearance and cost are all important, but today, people also want service and reliability. Customers are looking for appliances that when they need servicing or breakdown can be repaired or serviced by locally based appliance service centers. Most nationally recognized appliance manufacturers have certified appliance repair facilities located in various parts of the country. These appliance service centers usually require the mailing or shipping of the appliance, a service turnaround of a few days and then the shipping back to the customer. No matter how fast the item is repaired the customer has a several day period without the use of the appliance.
