About ApplianceJunk.com
« on: January 02, 2009, 02:31:37 PM »
Our History:

ApplianceJunk.com was registered with godaddy.com Jan. 16th 2006.

At the time I had no idea what I would do with the .com name.

Then towards the end of June 2007 I was on the godaddy.com site checking things out and I read about how you could have godaddy.com install SMF forum software when you bought a hosting package.

At the time I had been helping out on a couple other appliance repair forums.

After reading some more about the SMF software I thought about how great it would be to start my own appliance repair site so I could help others one on one.

By July 1st 2007 the Appliance Repair Forums was live online.


Today:

ApplianceJunk.com has now grown far beyond anything I had ever dreamed it would.

At the time of this post (January 02, 2009) ApplianceJunk.com has grown to include 2821 members with a total of 9854 post in the forum.

We have many visitors every day that Register for a free account.

ApplianceJunk.com is no longer hosted with godaddy.com and is now hosted with MonteCarloHosting.


Our Volunteers:

We are lucky to have a team of professional appliance repair technicians (AJ Team) that volunteer there time to help others repair there appliance.

I feel very lucky to have the AJ Team members helping out on our site. ApplianceJunk.com would not be what it is today without there help.



 

Hope you find our site helpful.

Congratulations on a successful and necessary web site.
Any technician that thinks they know it all has refused to keep learning.
I found your site because I was stumped on a repair. I got the help I needed here.
Thank you for the opportunity to use my knowledge to help others.
In my one man repair business I have fixed as many appliances over the phone with willing customers as I have on in home service calls.

Just like this site, it keeps them coming back.
