Repair, Dont Replace! Why its better to repair a broken appliance
Thousands of home appliances get thrown away each year, often unnecessarily when a small and often inexpensive repair can be made to get many more years of service from the appliance.
Up to three-quarters of all broken down appliances are replaced with a new unit rather than being repaired, which is often costly, and causes up to two million tonnes of household and business e-waste every single year.
Not only is this harmful to the environment, but repair costs are often a fraction of the cost of replacing a broken-down appliance. Now more than ever, many households are having to watch what they spend, and the surprise cost of a new appliance to replace a broken down one can be a financial burden on already tight budgets.
We are on a mission to change this, supplying quality, low cost appliance spares for a huge variety of appliances that can often be easily swapped or replaced.
In most cases, a repair is a lot simpler than you may think. Most parts are made to be easily exchanged and are often a direct replacement as well as being easy to access.
