Testimonials

Kurt Benfield is a well qualified repair technician with many years of experience!
Carrol Huffman

I have known Mr Benfield for almost 30 years. He worked for me in my Industrial Electomechanical contracting company before becoming an appliance repair specialist. He is extremely knowledgeable and proficient in his trade. He has always been professional , courteous and customer orientated. He has been a tremendous resource in residential appliance repair in the unifour area. When you demand the best in appliance repair do not hesitate to let Kurt take care of your appliance issues big or small.
Bob Swink

Knowledgeable and customer service driven. Kurt is the only reason half of my appliances are still working like new. Highly recommended!
Jim Bolt

Great guy, great service. He had a gleam in his eye when he saw the old Maytag. Worked wonders on our refrigerator. Highly recommend Kurt and Benfield Appliance Repair.
Rick Rozzelle

Serviced our house and my parents house! Nothing but rave reviews......
Rufus Smith

Kurt is the UTMOST professional. I was thinking to buy another type of appliance which was much more expensive but after talking to Kurt he explained in length the difference in two dryers and why I probably should NOT buy the more expensive one. So all I need is a simple basic repair on the one I already have. He saved me HUNDREDS and potentially Hundreds more in the long run in repairs. Don't know too many HONEST repair companies like that. Do you?? Just AWESOME!!
Candace Reese Rodriguez

Kurt installed a dishwasher for me once and had to reroute the power supply. My parents have sought his advice on many occasions. If you're looking for a total professional who goes the extra mile, he's your man.
Eric Reep

Who better to keep your home appliances "in tune" than Kurt?
Smitty Drum

Known this man for many years. Always a stand up guy and goes out of his way to help his friends and customers. Diagnosed and fixed my ice maker in about 15 minutes! Had the part on his truck and has given very helpful advice to me also when I needed to replace a heating element in my range. You can't do better than Benfield Appliance Repair.
Lonnie Mays

Have known Kurt for years and have to say he impresses me at every turn. Fast .. reliable...and years worth of knowledge give him an edge above all others.
Donald Terry

Kurt is an absolutely outstanding individual who takes his work very seriously. He treats everyone with respect and is ALWAYS punctual. I have yet to meet another professional with as much dedication and talent to get tasks done in a faster than timely manner. I give my highest recommendation to Kurt Benfield and would never hesitate to send my closest friends and family to him for anything appliance related. Don't just take my word for it... call him.... you'll be glad you did.
Nick Medeiros

I am a full time plumber and anytime I have issues with an appliance , I refer the customer to Benfield's appliance repair . He is dedicated , dependable , and most of all he is honest . Call Benfield's appliance repair if you want the issue solved now and at an affordable rate.
Mykel Shoup

Kurt is not only the best service tech I have used he is one of the best people I have met. He treats your home like his own. Wouldn't have anyone else work on anything in my home.
Chance Cline

Benfield Appliance Repair (BAR) and Kurt are synonymous with professional, reliable, honest, trustworthy, experienced, knowledgeable and thorough. What more could you ask for? Over the years, I've relied on Kurt's expertise for a number of needs where appliance repair and expansion services were needed and/or desired. Kurt has always delivered!!! In some cases, he's been able to diagnose the problem over the phone where I was able to correct minor issues myself, thus saving a service call/charge. It just doesn't get any better than that! Period!!! Raising the "BAR" indeed!!! I'll always think Kurt and Benfield Appliance Repair whenever I need such a service!! My only issue here is that there are only 5 stars for this review - I'd much rather have given 10!!!

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What are your rates?
(BAR) Benfield Appliance Repair, LLC does not charge an hourly rate like a plumber or an electrician. Instead, we use as national flat rate guide which is a standard in the industry. It is called "The Original Blue Book Major Appliance Job Rate Guide" - Online Version. This allows us to quote you and exact price, up front, after diagnosis, before any work is performed.

Our "Service Charge" falls under Tier I and Tier II pricing. Tier I pricing is applied for Standard Appliances = $99.95 plus 7% NC/Catawba County Sales Tax. Tier II pricing is applied for "Hi-end" and/or "built-in" appliances, stacked laundry appliances and all gas appliances, gas lines and gas logs = $129.95 plus 7% NC/Catawba County Sales Tax. This fee includes our trip to your home and the diagnosis of your problem. After diagnosis is completed and you agree to the repair, we will factor in the service charge into the final fee. This final invoice will be the sum of the service charge + parts + labor + tax.

How does the flat rate guide work?
The Online Blue Book Guide is an extensive database of all the possible repairs that can be done on major appliances. It takes in to account a variety of factors such as parts, time and labor, special equipment, predictable and unpredictable circumstances surrounding specific jobs, inventory management, education/training, office staff, advertising, insurances, travel time to and from the customer's home and all service vehicle expenses.

The benefit to the customer of such a system is full transparency in the pricing procedure and the ability to make an informed decision by knowing the exact cost of the job ahead of time. There are no hidden fees, no charge for extra time and no charge for additional trips. This method of pricing protects our customers.

What are your rates?

It is called "The Original Blue Book Major Appliance Job Rate Guide" - Online Version. This allows us to quote you and exact price, up front, after diagnosis, before any work is performed.

Can you quote me a price over the phone?
Diagnosis is something that can only be done in person, and diagnosis is the first step in determining the price of a repair. There are far too many variables to be able to give an accurate diagnosis or price over the phone. We want to be sure we are giving you 100% accurate information and for this reason, it is our policy to only quote a price once our appliance technician has diagnosed your problem in person.

Are your repairs guaranteed?
All of our repairs are backed by a 90-Day guarantee on labor. Any parts used will have their individual manufacturer's warranty.

What type of payment do you accept?
"BAR" accepts cash, local bank personal checks, and all major credit and debit cards. Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover. We will process your card payment on the spot using RazorSync: Merchant Resource Center Processing. We do not store your card numbers.

Can you send me a bill?
We do not use an invoicing service so we request that payment is made when the job is complete. To make this as convenient as possible, we accept cash, local checks, credit cards and debit cards. A receipt will be issued via e-mail immediately at the time of payment and/or printed on site by our Appliance Technician.

Do you sell new or used appliances?
Our focus is appliance repair and do not sell new or used appliances. If we deem your appliance is beyond repair, we will suggest a local retail appliance store for purchases.

Do you sell parts?
We do not stock parts for resale, only for repairs.

Do you service (HVAC) central heating and air units? Or do any plumbing?
No, only gas fireplaces, logs, inserts and space heaters. We'll be happy to refer you to the appropriate contractors.
