What is a Repair Contract?
When to use a Repair Contract:
- You are an independent contractor who has been hired to perform home repairs.
- You require repairs to your home and would like to formalize the Contract with your independent contractor.
Should repair technicians write Repair Contracts every time they are hired?
Even if being a repair contractor is your side gig, it is important to capture the details of your commitments to the client in writing. Signing this document most likely will be helpful for your business because of the following list of benefits:
- The repair technician and client both know what they are responsible for
- There are no surprises about how long the engagement lasts
- Everyone knows when invoicing will happen
Anyone choosing not to use a Repair Agreement should prepare for certain issues, such as overdue invoices and unrealistic requests.
What information should my Repair Contract contain?
Specifics that you might want to cover are:
- Contact information for the client
- What fees will be charged and when
- How long the engagement will last
- What tasks you will be doing once hired
As expected, the document will also include typical legalese regarding the non-employer relationship between the repair technician and client, confidentiality, restitution for losses, and the method(s) of dispute resolution. As you make your agreement, you also will be able to pick which state's jurisdiction it will fall under. Further adjustments and edits are allowed, as well.
