National Repair Done Right Month – November 2022

National Repair Done Right Month is observed throughout November annually. It celebrates repair workers who serve consumers looking for reliable repair services for mobile devices, electronics, appliances, and other products. This month aims to increase awareness of the numerous places people go for repair services.

Even though the idea may sound strange, the goal of National Repair Done Right Month is simple. We can all do a bit more to protect what we own. The holiday aims to demonstrate this by encouraging people to repair broken appliances and helping them find reliable professionals to get the job done right.

History of National Repair Done Right Month

Several industry organizations support the creation of this promotional month to honor the safe and secure maintenance of connected devices. National Repair Done Right Month is for any trade group, manufacturer, or repair service provider promoting any specific product or association that wants to provide trustworthy repair services to customers.

This promotional month will focus on customer engagement to increase awareness of getting mobile device repairs done at industry-recognized sites nationally staffed by trained and vetted repair technicians. We need repairs carried out well by experienced, educated, and trusted repair specialists now more than ever because we rely on electronic devices to improve our lives!

In commercial, industrial, and residential settings, maintenance is the repair, inspection, or replacement of essential devices, machinery, equipment, building infrastructure, and utilities. This term has evolved to include other terminologies that express various cost-effective techniques to maintain operating equipment. Maintenance takes place either before or after a failure.

The month-long observance provides a platform for industry-certified retailers and people involved in device repair retail and supply chains to promote integrity in their service delivery. Reliable, trustworthy service must be the standard on all jobs, big and small. Not only should customers be able to find what they need, but they must also be able to trust the repair service provider to get it done right.
