The Ginger Beard Repair Service

We specialise in Appliance Repair.

Hi I’m Tait. Formerly of Ginger Beard Handy Services. As of July 2018, we have changed our focus to provide Appliance Repair to Canberra and the Surrounding Suburbs. 

I’m a licenced and experienced electrical repairer and I am able to repair just about any appliance that I can get the parts for so that you don’t have to throw out your faulty washing machine, refrigerator, stove, oven or dishwasher. 

I have changed the name of the business to The Ginger Beard Repair Service because repair is my passion and it better describes who I am and what we do: We repair appliances (and there’s also the beard).

We also now offer a time slot each day for urgent repairs. This is usually at the end of our day, once we have completed our previously booked repairs.

The Ginger Beard Repair Service uses an online booking system so that you are able to choose an appointment that works best for you, rather than the limited options you might get by booking over the phone.

Our Rates

One of the most important questions we get asked is “How much is my appliance repair going to cost?” So that you can make an informed decision, we have included our repair rates here.

In-Home Appliance Repairs

First 1/2 Hour

This includes our call out fee, for jobs booked between 8am and 4pm and is applied once per repair.

Each 1/4 Hour After



This is after the First 1/2 Hour



Commercial and Outside Regular Hours


In addition to our regular rate


Small Appliance Repairs

Inspection Fee

This includes the first half hour of work on your appliance.

Each 1/4 Hour After

This is after the First 1/2 Hour


That’s good to know but how long does a job take?

It is understandable the frustration in not knowing what something will cost. We aim to complete most of our jobs within 1.5 hours of labour (Call out + 1 hour). This includes diagnostic, sourcing and collection of parts, repair and a testing cycle, if required. If you have extra appliances or things for us to do, things may take longer.  You can find other information in our FAQ.

Capped Price Labour on a Repair (Standard Domestic Appliance Repairs)

You want to know how much a repair on your appliance is going to cost. While each repair is different, I want to give you certainty in labour pricing. With this in mind, if I am able to complete an appliance repair in your home, then I will cap the labour on that repair to the call out + 2 hours labour. This does not apply to commercial appliances or installations, or quoted work. Terms and Conditions apply so be sure to check those out.

Ok great but what are parts going to cost me?

We charge the retail cost of parts as advised to us by our suppliers. Where a part is not supplied by retail (ie by trade supply only) we charge ~20% mark up (ie 10% + GST). Of course you can supply the part yourself but don’t forget about warranty (again check our T&C). A ballpark figure is between $30 to $150 for most parts. If parts cost over $250 (or other pre-arranged figure) we will contact you before ordering. This helps to speed up the repair process.

To Summarise (is it worth it to repair?)

Our minimum charge is $175. Our aim is to complete the job in under $446 (parts and labour). Labour is capped at $417 and we will revisit if parts are going to cost more than $250, for a upper limit of $667 (depending on parts). This puts a repair between approximately 12.5% to 50% the cost of a new appliance (average $1400 appliance). In this range, we think it is cost effective to repair.
