    Default Business Plan

    Hi Everyone, Thanks for letting me join this forum, I am in the process of writing a basic business plan to start an Appliance Repair
    service. I will be only working on whirlpool appliance to start with, I have the following questions. 1) What dollar amount should i insert for basic parts inventory?
    2) where can i find a list for the basic whirlpool parts that i will need to start with in my inventory? 3) Where can i find whirlpool troubleshooting information and parts information?

    P.S I am new to this industry! I am very mechanical and can use a multi-meter!

    Thanks to everyone for your help in advanced, Jerry

    It depends Jerry, the more calls you do the more money you make.
