A study by PartSelect.com has found the cities in America in which people are most likely to tackle their own appliance repair jobs. Santa Fe-Espanola, New Mexico topped the list. The findings are focused on appliance repair; however, it is likely one could extend this logic to other do-it-yourself categories.
Do-it-yourself repair isn’t new. People have been fixing their own stuff for as long as there has been something to break. What is new, though, is the growing number of online resources to figure out how to fix something. PartSelect.com offers how-to videos and a tool called Instant Repairman (links at end).
