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 or dishwasher.
“While we are here” we can also help take care of some of the small handytrade problems you might have around your home.
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 we help with small repairs around the home (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.
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.
It is understandable the frustration in not knowing what something will cost. We aim to complete most of our jobs within 2 hours of labour. 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.
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 2.5 hours labour. Terms and Conditions apply so be sure to check those out.
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 for most parts is between $30 to $150 but we can confirm that with you once we have diagnosed the issue.
These are just some of the major brands found around Canberra that we can repair. If your appliance has parts available, we can repair it.
Our specialty is in home appliance repair. We are equipped to be able to perform any kind of appliance repair that does not require a workshop (which covers almost everyting that is repairable). We can even take care of some of your home repair needs “While we are here” saving you the added hassle of calling someone else for your small repairs.

We get it. Sometimes an appliance has a number of problems that make it uneconomical to repair. Parts may no longer be in stock or their price is prohibitive to repair.
We are able to help you with sourcing, and replacing your appliance from local suppliers and can help dispose of your old appliance.
We are also able to help you with things like clothes dryer mounting.
While we are already attending your appliance repair, we can also attend to some of the smaller problems around your home that might be “too small to deal with”:
Tap & washer repairs
Sliding door repairs (internal & external)
Towel racks, shower curtains
Flat pack & kit assembly
Other small handyperson jobs
The Ginger Beard Repair Service Team has the problem solving skills and experience to be able to repair your appliances.
