Pricing Policies & Procedures
Read More About Our Policies & Pricing
This page is designed to give our customers additional transparency and visibility. While other companies try to keep their pricing policies a mystery, we believe in empowering our customers through fostering trust.
Below, you’ll find an explanation for every service charge, every fee, and every exception to the rule. Not to mention some goodies we’ve thrown in for free!
What is your service call fee?
The service call includes any and all trips to your location, any and all return visits if necessary, and the time it takes to diagnose the problem. Our policy also includes transparent and flat-rate pricing, only after a thorough diagnosis has been performed, and before you ever pay a penny.

What is the job rate?
The job rate is separate from the service call, and includes all parts and labor. To help calculate a fair job rate we use the MASPG, the “Blue Book” of the appliance repair industry. We consider many factors when pricing a repair. They include salaries, cost of parts, insurance, taxes, telephones, etc. All parts and installation is included in our estimate.
What is your charge for additional appliances?
If we’re already at your house, we might as well make it worth your time. Within the same service call, we’ll diagnose your original appliance and up to 2 additional appliances FREE of charge.
Are future service calls discounted?
As our way of saying thanks, with your paid repair or service call, you’ll get 50% OFF any future service calls, for up to 30 days.
What if my appliance breaks again?
100% Money-Back Guarantee
We partner with our customers on every repair.
You can’t lose!
If we fix an appliance and it breaks down again during our ninety day warranty period, we’ll return for free and determine the cause of the problem. If the breakdown has anything to do with the original repair, we’ll fix it for free!
If the machine has another problem, we’ll treat the repair as if we had diagnosed both problems at the same time and price it accordingly. You pay the same amount had we made the complete diagnosis on the first trip to your house.
If the machine is not worth spending any additional money on, we’ll give you back the original repair cost, less the regular service charge.
For questions about our Money Back Guarantee or to schedule a service appointment, contact us today.
In the rare event a technician gives a quote that cannot be fulfilled, we’ll do our best to keep your costs as affordable as possible. Should the cost exceed a reasonable amount, you’ll have the option to refund your deposit.
This can happen for several reasons including; the original part is no longer available, the part or labor price unknowingly changes, or the repair requires additional updated assemblies.
Although we keep our vans fully-stocked with one of the largest parts inventories in the industry, with unique appliance models, it is sometimes necessary to order special parts. If your appliance does require a special order, your parts will be ordered the same day, while shipping usually takes between 2 and 14 working days.
Your job quote includes standard shipping; however, should you request a rush order, we can arrange it at an additional cost. Due to manufactures policies, once we have ordered a part, we cannot stop or cancel it. We require a 75% deposit. (See shipping policy.)
If your repair cannot be completed due to unforeseen changes in parts availability or a changed diagnosis, you are eligible for a full refund of your deposit, minus your service call.
Please allow up to 10 working days for your refund to process.
In addition to our online monthly specials, Seniors, Active Military, Police and Firefighters get a 10% discount toward all repairs. Discounts and coupons are valid during normal working hours and must be presented during time of diagnosis.
Coupons cannot be combined with other offers and do not apply toward service call charges. The higher value coupon applies.
The rate we deliver clients depends on a handful of different factors. Our current rates reflect the various costs involved in each repair and the marginal profits which often do not exceed 10% over the cost of doing business. We maintain high standards and ensure that our company continues to be fair and competitive in the marketplace. As a further example of how we operate, our companywide profit stood at just 5% last year.
Our goal has always been to provide superior customer care and service at a reasonable price. To give our customers the very best in appliance repair we offer military, senior, civil servant, and a variety of other monthly discounts and coupons.
Contact us today to learn more about these programs and reductions. Along with these discounts we will also match any similar local discounts from our competitors. If you require 24/7 Emergency Service, you will be billed at a higher rate. Please call our office for more details.
Our goal is to repair your appliance, but if you decide not to repair, we offer warehouse direct appliances. We are dedicated to following through until you are back up and running. Appliance purchases cannot be returned without the manufacture’s approval. All sales final.
Initial payment includes shipping, handling, look-ups, operating costs, warranties, and parts. No refunds are possible with special order parts. You must call 7 days after the parts arrival and shipping confirmation. Should you open the box or the part is installed by anyone other than Action, the warranty is void and the repair is considered completed and paid in full.
If the job is canceled after the parts have shipped, there is a $50 shipping and handling fee plus the manufacturer’s restocking fee. Customer is responsible for returning any canceled part to our office within 7 days. Manufacturer will not accept returns after 30 days of the original order.
