First thing, I'm not a developer so I can't help you much.

I don't see why a Google Docs spreadsheet wouldn't work unless you need 
the people requesting the repairs to fill it in themselves, in which 
case they'd see the personal information for everyone who had previously 
requested a repair so it depends on who is filling it in.

Something like Google Forms might suit you instead.

If you want to build your own web or mobile app you're going to need to 
pay a developer and for hosting for the website and storage of the data.

If you're storing people's personal data I'd expect you're bound by GDPR 
and it gets complicated at that point. I'm not an expert on GDPR so 
you'll need advice from somebody who knows more about it. At the least 
you'll need to tell people what data you store and provide a way for 
them to request a copy or ask you to delete any information you hold on
