Repair before Replacement

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. And the way how we do it is by educating our customers and providing affordable laptop repairs.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is a third to half of the price of a new device. While we do the repair we target common planned obsolescence design mistakes to ensure the longevity of the laptop usability.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
Quite often, we see accidents reoccurring within less than 6 months gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty laptop is great. That’s an extra half laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another laptop polluting our planet.
