Do you have a broken screen or any other accidental damage and are considering your options for iPad repair service? You may worry about voiding your warranty. Surprise! Going to a third party repair shop won’t void your warranty. Service providers may try to convince you to buy a new device instead of repairing it. Repair shops offering post-warranty repairs will always do what they can to fix your device. That way, you don’t have to buy a new one. Also, 9 times out of 10, repairing your device will be cheaper than replacing it.
Many iPad users don’t know that the manufacturer is not the one and only repair option. In fact, you have many options when it comes to third-party repair shops specializing in iPad repair. Some may even be local. When looking at the best options for iPad repairs and to assure you have the same good screen quality you had before, you will want to choose a shop that has qualified, experienced techs who have a good track record with iPads. If a repair is done correctly, using high-quality replacement materials, the fixed iPad’s screen quality should be as good as when it was new.
Do It Yourself – Do At Your Own Risk
Before taking on any do-it-yourself-projects, you must understand that you do so at your own risk. Worst case scenario, you can get injured. Or you can damage the iPad beyond repair. You should only attempt to repair it yourself if you have exhausted all other options and aren’t worried about breaking the iPad any further.
Third Party iPad Repair Companies: What to Expect
In the past few years, many repair companies have cropped up all over the world specializing in iPad repairs. Unfortunately, not all of them use quality parts and/or know exactly what they’re doing. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a third party iPad repair company, so you can get the best results possible:
Do a little research.
Check for an official website, Facebook, or Twitter page and see what other people are saying about them.
If you can’t find an online presence, you probably want to look for another option.
Any credible repair company should be more than forthcoming with their customers. They should gladly accept their feedback in a public forum where potential customers can find it.
Finding quality information about a company online is important when you’re looking at mailing in a device.
Walk-ins allow you to gauge your level of comfort on a face to face basis. But mail-ins do not provide you with this opportunity to get a feel for the company.
Thinking about mailing your device off to a company? You should communicate with them on the phone or at the very least, via email, before doing so.
If you can’t find a contact phone number and/or physical address, find another service. There are many reputable companies out there that will gladly talk to you.
Pricing is a deciding factor for many when they’re debating whether they should get a device fixed or buy a new one.
A reputable repair shop should be open about their pricing. A good sign is if they actually list it online on their website or Facebook page.
High-quality parts matter.
Knock-off and counterfeit parts on eBay and Amazon are cheaper for a reason. They have an extremely high defect rate. It’s also less likely that the repair company is going to warranty or stand behind their work when using these parts.
Don’t ever be afraid to ask a repair company what kind of parts they use or where they come from.
You can find high-quality parts from eBay and Amazon for a higher price tag. However, it’s not normally a route that a reputable repair company would take. A very obvious question that you should always be asking is whether or not a repair company warranties their work. Any good one should absolutely be warrantying not only parts but defects in workmanship.
