The state of service is three weeks right now. That means if someone schedules for a tech to fix their appliance, you wont see a tech for three weeks. If I was on my own, I'd be advertising like crazy right now.

Hey Lows,

What percentage of your calls, on average, are warranty calls?

Three weeks lead time is big, but for us non-authorized folks, the warranty calls are out.   That leaves whatever's left  available for competition.

The thing is, most people don't even know if an independent repairman is in the area. And don't know who they can trust. So they call $ears and get screwed. Most are locked in to a $ears warranty and have to deal with it. Or they bought a w/p product and have to deal with a&e. Most of the techs $ears employs cant change a light bulb. But the can sell, so they keep them on board.
