Find a television repair service at an affordable price by conducting online research on local shops to see price charts, maintenance options and customer reviews. It is also helpful to speak to several shops to obtain an estimate on the repairs according to the make and model of the units, as well as the specific repairs necessary.
Begin by creating a list of local repair services and technicians using business directories. Visit the websites for each business to read about how it prices repairs and what credentials it offers, such as being part of a repair trade union. Next, locate the repair shops and technicians on business review websites to read about the experiences of past customers. This identifies common issues such as overcharging for repairs, failure to complete the servicing or poor customer service. It also helps to discover the positive traits of a technician.
After shortening the list of potential services, contact each one to explain needs and request an estimate of costs. Request an estimate that includes separate calculations for parts and labor, though this may require a visit to the shop for a physical inspection. It may also be helpful to speak to friends and family members to locate someone with personal experience with the repair service.
