Starting the Business

After Peter graduated from college in 1985, he started his own business and has been in business for himself ever since.


Our appliance repair technician, Peter, left Montgomery Ward in 1980, where he had been working as a repairman and went to Tulsa, OK, to pursue a career as an aircraft mechanic.

He attended Spartan School of Aeronautics and graduated with an associate's degree. Peter then became a licensed airframe and power plant mechanic and also obtained a pilot's license. Peter built flight simulators to train commercial pilots for United Airlines, TWA, and Ansett Australia.

Peter later returned to school, obtained a bachelor's degree at Oklahoma State, and later moved back to Albany, NY, in 1985 to start his own business. He again returned to night school, getting a refrigeration associate degree and certification.

The Great Leap

In the 1970s, Peter worked for the Singer Sewing Machine Company and at Montgomery Ward, where he carried out general appliance repairs. He started his own business as an appliance repair technician and sewing machine servicing.

Personal Life

Peter has two children and two grandchildren. 

If a second service call is required, you will not be charged for a second service call for a return visit.


Clients are the backbone of every business, and Peter is very proud of the many satisfied customers' testimonials he regularly receives, like this one:

"We have a Kenmore dryer that stopped tumbling. We called Sears, and they just kept trying to sell us a "plan" - a real hard sell, so we hung up. We then called Decher's - he came in about an hour and fixed it easy as pie. Skip Sears - call Decher's." - Google™ user
