The Top 5 Appliance Repair Companies in Vancouver for Quick Fixes

The Top 5 Appliance Repair Companies in Vancouver for Quick Fixes
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

I am all about a good DIY project. So, when my dryer decided to take a permanent vacation cycle, I figured out a quick fix online, and I’d be drying clothes like nobody’s business! 

Big mistake. I spent an afternoon convinced I was an appliance repair wizard before realising I wasn’t, when I finally called the repair guy.

To be exact, I called several repair guys! The first one’s quote was astronomical, the second one was cheap but made the problem worse, and the third was the one who finally fixed my issue. 

But obviously, no one wants to go through that sort of trial just to get their dryer working again. That’s how I ended up with the idea for today’s roundup. 

The rest of the Waterview Vancouver team helped me gather a mess of broken appliances from friends, volunteers, and local junkyards to put the city’s repairmen to the test. Ultimately, we judged the ones below to be Vancouver’s best repair companies!

How much does appliance repair in Vancouver cost?

Expect to spend at least $200 for most appliance repairs in Vancouver. The cost will vary depending on the labour fees, appliance brand, type of appliance, and the repair work needed. 

How We Chose

Speedy Service: Broken appliances are a real pain, so we looked for companies that offered same-day service or at least had quick turnaround times. 
Transparency: No one wants any hidden surprises when it comes to the bill. So we chose companies with upfront pricing or free quotes. This way, we knew exactly what we were getting into. 
Warranty: We looked for companies that offered a warranty on their repairs. This gives peace of mind knowing that if something goes wrong after the fix, they’ll take care of it. 
Customer Service: We looked for things like friendliness, clear communication, and easy appointment scheduling.

1. Better Care Appliance Repair

Operating Hours: Open 24 hours


From vintage espresso makers to fancy downdraft ventilation systems, Appliance Repair Vancouver seems able to handle it all.

One of the things I liked was that their website made it clear which brands they service. I think this gives peace of mind to people like me with appliances still kicking from the 90s and, heaven forbid, older.

However, despite their long list of repair services online, I couldn’t find a single repair fee estimate anywhere. It would be great to see them offer some estimated repair costs on their website, or at least a range depending on the appliance.

Despite this, Mark, one of their main repairmen, was spot on with fixing our test coffee maker with their same-day repair services. (And yes, their repair came with a one-year warranty.) 

I did think the price was a little bit on the high side for just a coffee machine repair, but one often has to pay for speed and quality, so it’s not too big a pain point.


  • Same-day repair service
  • Repairs old and new brands
  • Speedy repairs


  • No price estimates online
  • Repair fees a little high

Customer Reviews

Reliable and skilled repair technician

I had the pleasure of dealing with Mark, and I must say he exceeded all my expectations. His in-depth knowledge and the way he explained the issue and the repair process were truly impressive. Mark quickly diagnosed the problem, efficiently repaired my dishwasher, and left it working like new. Not only did he fix the issue, but he also provided valuable tips on maintaining the appliance to prevent future problems. His friendly demeanor and dedication to excellent service truly impressed me. If you’re looking for a reliable and skilled dishwasher repair technician, I highly recommend Mark from Better Care Appliance Repair. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you, Mark, for your outstanding service! .”

Amazing service and great communication

Just moved into my apartment and my dishwasher was not working. My dishes were still dirty after running a cycle, there was no water and the dishwasher tablets were not dissolving. Mark called me before he was arriving to give me a heads up which was great! He was able to resolve the problem in less than 20 minutes! Amazing service and great communication. Mark was very professional and efficient! Highly recommend!

2. Vancouver Appliance Service Pros

Vancouver Appliance Service Pros Banner

Address: 3030 Oak St, Vancouver, BC V6H 2K9, Canada

Contact Details: +16042653852

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday – 8 AM to 8 PM


We called VASP to come check out a pretty busted-up fridge someone handed over to us for this article’s research. The start wasn’t exactly great though.

That’s because we tried scheduling an appointment online only to find it a chore. Their whole booking system was such a drag—which was odd, because calling directly was a breeze! 

We were able to chat with Nick, their service tech, who gave us a verbal quote over the phone. That’s always good: it helps you compare prices and budget for the repair. 

The actual quote was on the high side, though. While we were a little bit taken back by the $135 diagnostic fee and the $50 per half-hour labour fee, we did appreciate knowing exactly what we were getting into.

It’s worth noting that had we been returning customers, we could’ve availed of their 20% discount. Still, we decided to try them out.

Nick wasted no time coming out to repair our fridge. He was as friendly in person as he was over the phone!

Having dealt with repair people who speak a language that sounds vaguely like Klingon, we also liked how Nick explained the problem with our fridge in a way that was clear and easy to understand. He even answered our (admittedly silly) questions patiently.


  • Same-day service
  • 20% discount for returning customers
  • Free phone consultations and quotes 


  • $135 diagnostic fee
  • $50 labour fee
  • Difficult booking appt online

Customer Reviews

Professional and knowledgeable technicians 

“Thrilled to leave a review! I sent an appointment request just before they opened up and within a few minutes I got a call from Nick one of their service managers, he had a technician here on a Sunday (and St paddys day of all times) literally a half hour from when I filled out the form. The technician was professional, clearly knowledgeable, and got the work done quickly without any excessive charges. They’re due to come back with a part to replace a sticky drain flap, but I was so impressed that I wanted to take to the web and share my experience. This kind of service is hard to find these days!”

Understanding and accommodating 

“Katie who I dealt with on the phone was great to deal with, understanding & accommodating when I had to reschedule a few times. The service tech Nick was excellent as well, also accommodating for my schedule, explained everything clearly and in an easy to understand fashion as the assessment and repair progressed. Neat and tidy and very professional. Would not hesitate to use Vancouver Appliance Service Pros again. Thank-you!”

3. Alpha Appliance Repair Service of Vancouver

Alpha Appliance Repair Service of Vancouver's Banner

Address: 3665 Kingsway #300, Vancouver, BC V5R 5W2, Canada

Contact Details: +16042458859

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday – 7 AM to 11 PM


While the Alpha website gets the job done, we thought it was a bit basic. It would’ve been nice to see online booking capabilities or a more detailed breakdown of their services.

Upon calling them, we were quoted a price upfront for the repairs we needed done. And yes, there weren’t any surprise fees at the end, which is always a relief.

But scheduling an appointment with them was like a tricky game of tic-tac-toe. Getting a repair tech to come out to us in the evening was especially difficult, so for speedier service, it’s probably better to stick with morning or afternoon appointments.

Upon meeting the service technician they sent out, we did like his clear professionalism. He quickly diagnosed the problem and wasted no time getting to work. He explained everything very clearly to us and even pointed out their 3-month warranty deal.

And as first-time customers, we got a $30 discount, which definitely saved us some cash on our final bill. Not too shabby!


  • $30 off for first time customers
  • Professional service techs
  • 3 month warranty 


  • Hard to get evening appointments
  • Website lacks booking capabilities 

Customer Reviews

Repairman did everything right

“My case was with an LG dishwasher. It wasn’t draining properly and I thought there was a clog, but I couldn’t get deep enough to get it out. So I sought professional help. The repairman did everything right! The dishwasher now drains well.”

Professional and worked cleanly 

Our Samsung refrigerator was making a horrible noise. We called Alpha and with 2 hours our refrigerator was fixed. Thermostat was gone. Great technician. Professional and worked cleanly.”

4. Pete’s Appliance Repair

Contact Details: +17788877383

Operating Hours: 

  • Monday to Friday – 8:30 AM to 5 PM
  • Saturday – 8:30 AM to 12 PM


Pete’s Appliance Repair isn’t just some faceless repair service. Their phone consultations are a breath of fresh air! 

Unlike some companies, Pete’s technicians actually take the time to chat about clients’ problems. Even when we first called them, they were patient and even able to diagnose a simple user error (hey, it happens to the best of us!) that saved us a service call.

While Pete’s personal touch was fantastic, we found that it’s also led to some scheduling hiccups with others. Since their team is a bit smaller, getting an appointment on short notice can prove tricky, as per some clients we talked to… and waiting a few days for a technician to come out is definitely not ideal.

Besides this, we liked how they were upfront about their prices. Plus, they use genuine manufacturer parts and back their work with a warranty on both parts (90 days) and labor (30 days). And for those limited parts, there’s a one-year warranty.


  • Excellent customer service
  • Upfront prices
  • 90 day, 30 day, and 1 year warranty


  • Hard to get appointments on short notice

Customer Reviews

Efficient and professional service

We had issues with our dishwasher leaking. Tim came out this afternoon and was very efficient, professional and determined to find the issue. We are very satisfied with the service he provided and his knowledge.  We strongly recommend Pete’s Appliance repair.”

Not many people have old school customer service like this

Peter is awesome. My wife and I needed a replacement washer/dryer for our rental unit and I thought what better advice than from the repairman himself. Peter spent quite a bit of time with me going over options and pros and cons and even gave me a tip on or other dryer on how to fix it with the current troubles we are having. For not even spending any money his service was awesome, Definitely recommend him. Not many people have old school customer service like this. Two thumbs up!!”

5. Loyalty Appliance Repair

Loyalty Appliance Repair's Banner

Contact Details: +17789605091

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday – 9 AM to 6 PM


Loyalty Appliance Repair’s website was a bit on the dull, spare side. It’s functional, sure, but it could have used a little extra something to convince you of the company’s credibility, especially now that so many people vet services online before hiring them.

Another thing that could be an issue is their service area. While Loyalty covers a decent chunk of Vancouver, it isn’t the best option if you live way out in the boonies. 

We asked about this when booking an appointment. From the initial call to their repair tech, everyone we interacted with was friendly, professional, and explained things in a way that even someone who confuses watts with widgets could understand. 

Speaking of the repair person, our technician was fantastic. He showed up on time, diagnosed the problem with the tester dishwasher quickly (it turns out it wasn’t channelling water properly), and had the whole thing fixed in under an hour. 

Plus, he was super chill and answered all our questions without making us feel like dorks. Always a good thing!


  • Friendly service techs
  • Speedy repair service


  • Website lacks service explanations
  • Service area not extensive

Customer Reviews

Timely and excellent repairs 

“Sharon has done repairs on our appliances in the past with timely and excellent results. This time, with help from Hansen, they quickly and efficiently diagnosed and fixed the problem with our refrigerator preventing a  lot of food from spoiling. I would highly recommend this team for any appliance work. Thanks again.”

Awesome and super knowledgeable 

“Simon at Loyalty appliance repair was awesome. Super knowledgeable and gave us great advice, not only on the best course of action for fixing our dishwasher but some great tips on general maintenance and best practices going forward to avoid future fixes. He was kind enough to work late back to back nights to make sure our dishwasher was working as soon as possible.”
