About Us

Our Mission Statement

The basic mission and purpose of Landers Appliance is to deliver “Honest, Reasonable and Reliable” service in every thing we do. Whether it is selling and installing a new appliance, completing a repair, selling parts, dealing with coworkers, company vendors, or our neighbors, etc. we will strive to go out of our way to provide unequaled service delivery with the highest degree of customer satisfaction in mind.

We believe we’ll be profitable by striving to build a loyal base of customers who refer us to family and friends for all of their appliance needs because we deliver unparalleled customer service

We will strive to treat others the same way we want them to treat us!

In the event we fail to uphold these standards, we will strive to offer a humble apology and make appropriate restitution.


Many of the Landers Appliance Technicians are Master Certified! Our technicians sat for a 1/2 day of testing covering all aspects of the major appliance service industry and passed with flying colors! There are very few Master Certified technicians in the country and we have a company with many of them!!!! Rest assured that when you call our company for a repair you are in professional, competent hands.

We are also very proud of the fact that many of our employees have been with us a very long time, including a few over 30 years with an overall average of 10.5 years! Some of our technicians have started with us as teenagers, including right out of high school and been thoroughly trained in both the art of appliance service as well as the art of serving our customers. If you’ve used our company you already know all of our staff are kind and courteous. They fully understand our goal is to serve our customers with integrity, professionalism and respect, which they do every day, day in and day out. The many awards and honors we’ve received over the years speak highly of the quality, and disposition of our staff.
