GRANGEVILLE — Daeli Appliance Repair is open and ready for business.
Mike Kinsley of Grangeville recently finished on-line schooling to prepare him for this new phase in his life as an appliance repairman.
“I’ve been on my own in construction for more than 20 years and I’m feeling it,” Kinsley laughed. “I’m just ready to try something else.”
Kinsley said he has enjoyed fixing things and felt there was a need in the area for home appliance repair.
Kinsley will serve as far north as Pierce, as far south as McCall, Elk City, Lowell and everywhere in-between, including all of Idaho County. He will continue in his construction business until the appliance business picks up and he can take it on full time.
“I’ve been getting a lot of hands-on experience since I finished schooling in March,” Kinsley said. “I think this will be a solid, viable business and I look forward to the opportunity to help people.”
Kinsley said he will discuss with customers prior to repairing items how much the cost will be.
“Sometimes it costs more to fix something than a person wants to put into it,” he said. “We can talk about that and see what the options are.”
Kinsley said refrigerators have “priority on the fix list.”
“People have to have their refrigerators and freezers, so I will make a point to put those calls at the top of the list,” he said.
The name Daeli is taken from Kinsley’s children’s names: 11-year-old twins Dayne and Baeli.
“My wife thought of that,” he smiled. Tina Kinsley works at Lindsley’s Home Furnishings.
