Repair Services Guide
Broken but fixable — at least sometimes. That phrase seems to describe the gadgets, machines, equipment and technical marvels that fill modern homes (and offices). Not to mention what's going on with the house itself. Or, with the automobiles we drive. Centainly, problems with repair services of all kinds are among the top complaints received by consumer affairs organizations. But repair problems don't have to be your number one complaint.
The Money Matters Repair Services Guide provides basic strategies, tips, and information for making good repair decisions and getting good service in four basic categories: autos, appliances, computers, and TV and electronics. Our goal is to help you put your common sense and your toolbox to best use.
