Our Repair Policy

Commencement of work for repair requires a $39 non-refundable deposit. This deposit amount goes towards final cost of repair. LCD, battery, and motherboard replacements and some special order parts do not qualify for flat rates. If the problem requires a new motherboard or LCD screen, we will notify you with a quote, at which time you may approve or decline the repair.

3 Months Warranty

Our repair warranty covers two situations:

  1. If the same problem that you (a customer) brought the computer in for appears and the components we replaced caused it, both components and labor are free.
  2. If the same problem that you (a customer) brought the computer in for appears, but was not caused by the components we replaced, we will cover the labor but you will need to pay for the parts.

For other problems, customers will need to pay for both parts and labor.

*For "liquid spill" damages, even repairable, we provide a 1-week warranty.
