Repair Shops and Related Services, NEC

SIC 7699

Industry report:

This category covers establishments primarily engaged in specialized repair services, not elsewhere classified.

Miscellaneous repair shops service a plethora of items, including motorcycles, bicycles, leather goods, lawn mowers, window shades, camping equipment, pianos and organs, septic tanks, surgical instruments, surveying equipment, and bowling pins. The industry encompasses taxidermists, locksmiths, and office machine repairers, among other miscellaneous services. While many companies, such as furnace cleaning firms, specialize in one type of activity, other industry participants are general maintenance companies that supply a variety of repair and related services.

General maintenance workers are jacks-of-all-trades, and they work as plumbers, carpenters, and mechanics. They repair and maintain machines and equipment, for example, and fix air-conditioning systems, repair roofs and floors, maintain cafeterias, restore tools, refurbish furniture, inspect mechanical systems, and perform many other services. They are often self-employed; travel to a work site; and work for governments, institutions, and private industry.

Representing the diversity of repair occupations, this industry classification encompassed more than 130,000 establishments at the end of the first decade of the 2000s and employed more than 45,000 people. More than half were sole proprietorships, and more than 95 percent had fewer than 25 employees. The combined industry had total revenues of around $37 billion. Categories within the industry included cleaning services, locksmith services, septic tank repair and cleaning, boat repair, piano tuning, custom picture framing, farm machinery repair, horseshoeing, taxidermists, knife sharpening, heavy equipment repair, and gun repair.

By the early 2010s, the economy was showing signs of recovery from the recession that had gripped the economy at the end of the first decade of the 2000s, and firms in the overall repair industry were cautiously optimistic in the face of substantial challenges. The appliance repair industry, for example, was expected to be affected by the trend of consumers purchasing new equipment, according to research firm IBISWorld. After delaying major purchases during the recession, Americans were expected to increase their spending on new items, such as appliances and lawn and garden equipment, and analysts expected that trend could inhibit growth in the repair industry. However, increasing prices of almost all products on the market had the potential to result in industry growth, as consumers considered fixing the items they have rather than buy new ones.
