I have been in the business since 1991. I help out a lot of low income families with appliances which they would not be able to afford buying them brand new. I have non-working appliance donated to me or on the weekends I will drive around looking for appliances put outside under carports or out in the yard and I will stop and ask the owners if they are looking to get rid of them. If so, then I haul them back to the shop and repair them, sand them up and paint them  if need be and I will sell them at around $75.00 to $100.00. I make next to nothing doing this but I also go out on service calls so I do make a living at it.




 :thanks:
Richard
