24.0 YOU WANT IT WHEN? (HA, HA, HA) - CONSUMER CULTURE ARTICLES, FROM SAVVY-DISCOUNTS.com
As we mentioned in our last issue, everyone wants a repair done good, cheap and fast, but in reality you only get two out of three. While this is meant to be funny it is also true.
== If it is good and cheap, it isn't fast.
A good repair that costs very little is often done when the repair man can get around to it. Many charge extra for speed. Time is money.
== If it is cheap and fast, it isn't good.
Often the repair person will cut corners to do it cheap and fast so the repair is not well done.
== If it is good and fast, it isn't cheap.
Most companies will charge a premium price to do something quickly and to do it well.
Naturally there are exceptions, but they are few and far between.
Smart, frugal consumers like the readers of Savvy Discounts should content themselves with good and cheap repairs which are not fast. This involves a bit of planning, but planning is often one of the best ways to save money.
