Vacuum Repairs. Are they worth it? Or Should I buy a new one? If you live in the Montreal area get a free vacuum repair quote first.
The way vacuum cleaners are made today no wonder over 2 million vacuums were sold in the United States last year. With price being the number 1 sale point over quality, lots of people decide to throw away their vacuum instead of repairing it. I would agree on this principle if you are going around spending $150 on the newest Shark or Bissel, as this product will often be more expensive to repair than to buy a new one, however as soon as you enter the world of a $300 vacuum (Kenmore, Panasonic or even Dyson) repairing your vacuum cleaner should always be looked at as a first option over purchasing a new one. When you purchase anything over $600 I would strongly advise you to look into how easy it is to find repair pieces for the make and model of your vacuum and look into how long the company's vacuum you are purchasing has been in business.
Often times customers have problems with their vacuums and they can be easily fixed. For example the brush on the carpet beater is no longer turning, many people will just throw the vacuum in the garbage and go buy a new one. This practice is exactly what the vacuum cleaner manufacturers want you to do and is the reason why many companies use simple rubber belts without geared teeth (these brushes often just slip off or snap in half) what many people don’t realize is these belts can be easily replaced for under $20.00 with labor included. Other common problems include wiring on hoses or in handles of vacuum cleaners as well as improper bag usage and poor maintenance procedures on the part of the consumer. All of these can be easily fixed and often times require professional maintenance over expensive parts.
How to get a free vacuum repair quotation?
Just 20 years ago you would call up a local vacuum shop and they would be more than happy to have someone come to your house and give you a free quotation to fix your vacuum. However, as vacuum cleaner sales have become most prevalent in big box stores and not small locally owned independent shops, many of these smaller shops have had to close their doors, or have become 1 to 2 people operations in which they stay in their store, and can not leave because of potentially lost revenues. This is not the case with Aerus Electrolux Montreal or www.montrealerus.com, where they still believe that quality care and service of their customers come first. They offer free pick up and consultation on any Aerus Electrolux vacuum cleaner products, and as a promotion for their 90th anniversary are extending this service on all other vacuum cleaner makes and models.
So if you have a broken vacuum (central vacuum, canister vacuum or upright) just pick up the phone and give them a call (514-489-9353) Montreal and the East End or (514-426-4466) West Island and Laval. They will be at your place within 24 hours and offer you a free consultation. If you would rather bring your broken vacuum cleaner in for repair you can do so at 1 of their locations. The only advice I can give you is to bring in the entire vacuum and not just the piece that is broken as often times a loose wire inside the machine or on the hose can be causing problems elsewhere on the vacuum.
