Knowing who to call when your refrigerator has a problem is important.

Whether it’s a fridge, freezer, blast chiller low boy refrigeration that needs repair, we are here for all your fridge repairs in Canberra. In this guide, we’ll tell you exactly the qualities you need to be looking out for. For what is potentially a big-sounding job, it’s not as a difficult task to find a skilled refrigeration mechanic in Canberra as you may believe. To avoid overpaying and getting the job done right at the lowest price, consider the following factors when choosing a refrigeration service company:
1. Get references and check feedback
Never choose a refrigeration service blindly, unless you enjoy getting taken for a ride. References from friends, family members, and even neighbours can give you the lowdown on local companies they have hired in the past. Get as many references as you can to corroborate the experiences people have had, as sometimes a bad experience can be an outlier in an otherwise excellent service.Southern Air Conditioning Canberra is all about its reputation and word of mouth feedback. Check reviews! People aren’t shy about giving bad feedback or having a negative opinion, but won’t necessarily spread the word if they had a positive or neutral experience. These matter, and just remember that just because a business doesn’t have positive feedback, it doesn’t mean the service wasn’t good. Some people don’t go out of their way to post good feedback, but definitely will for a negative experience. Read a few of them, and if there is a pattern emerging, you might want to steer clear of that business.
2. Guarantee or warranty
Make sure you get one of these! Any repairer worthy of your business should offer a guarantee or warranty, in writing, of all the work performed and all parts installed. The company should also specify how long the warranty or guarantee lasts.
Before you even begin explaining the problems you are having with your refrigerator, ask your technician about licensing and insurance. This will help you determine if you are working with a qualified person. The professional should carry liability insurance to protect you in the case of accidental injury or damage when taking on a job. Next, ask whether or not the mechanic is certified. Certified mechanics have met minimum training requirements and have proven themselves to be the best in the industry.
4. Experience and expertise
How long has the company been in operation? What type of services does the company offer? These are some of the questions you should ask before proceeding to hire a refrigeration service company. AtSouthern Air Conditioning Canberra, we have been servicing the Canberra community since 2007 with thousands of happy customers. How long a firm has been in business could be a great indication of the quality of their services. A company should also have well trained and accredited technicians who are specialised in your refrigeration system. While you don’t need to look for an old mechanic, consider choosing somebody with a wealth of experience. Several years of experience in refrigerator repairs is great, but the technician should also have relevant experience with your refrigerator. Before you choose an expert, visit or call some of them and explain the problem you’re facing. This will help you get someone who knows more about the unit.
Pricing is likely your most important consideration but don’t make it the final consideration. This is why we have listed it last. Don’t just choose the cheapest company. Alternatively, paying the highest price does not mean you get a quality service. Look for the best overall combination of experience, knowledge, and price. Don’t let a price sway you completely in one direction. While some consider affordability to be the most important factor when it comes to pricing, it shouldn’t be your first thought. An inexperienced refrigeration mechanic may offer a good bargain that may cost you later. Costs may vary from one technician to the next. So, it is very important to ensure you get the project pricing upfront. Get at least three price quotes from three different mechanics to make your final decision.
Most commercial refrigerators are made with proprietary parts that are not accessible to amateur handymen. You want to find a commercial refrigerator repair service company that has the right license and certifications to perform repairs.
