Bellingham Repair

If you want to increase the likelihood that everything gets done to your specifications, it is not a bad idea to provide a written list/description of your repair request(s) possibly with photos for the repair shop that you wind up hiring. Sometimes repair folks may operate like waiters who think they can remember your whole order but don't.
