Smartphones break all the time.
And the repairs don’t come cheap. For instance, people smash around 50 million phone screens each year and spend almost $3.5 billion to fix them.
Clearly, it’s not a matter of if they’ll break, but when! The real question is where to get them fixed.
Did you just break your iPhone and are now wondering where to send it for repairs?
Read on for five benefits of getting your iPhone repaired locally versus further afield.
1. They’re Closer
Local stores are, of course, close to home.
That makes it super convenient to get your phone repaired. You simply wander down the local high street and find the best person for the job.
- No shipping your phone somewhere for repairs and waiting for it to be returned,
- No frustrating phone calls with unhelpful customer service staff
- No relying on online reviews and third-party recommendations to find a repair service.
That’s all good news for you!
2. They’re Faster
Few things in life are more frustrating than breaking your phone.
These days, we rely on them so much that any time without them becomes an issue. The quicker they can be repaired, the better.
Going local is an obvious help in that regard. You can, in theory, drop the phone in and have it repaired on the very same day!
3. They’re Cheaper
Sending your phone somewhere for replacements isn’t always cheap.
The cost of postage, parts, and labor can really stack up.
Likewise, you may still be paying for the phone’s plan (i.e. the data, minutes, and messages), even though you don’t actually have it. The longer you go without the phone, the more frustrating that can become.
The local repair option will usually offer cheaper prices and (as we’ve seen) get the phone back to you sooner. You save money as a result.
Just be wary if the price seems too good to be true! It probably is.
4. They’re Professional
Local stores sometimes have a bad reputation.
They can be seen as untrustworthy and/or incapable.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Of course, like any business, some are better than others. With a bit of due diligence, though, you have every chance of finding a truly professional service nearby.
Even better, you’ll be interacting with them in person, as opposed to over the phone or by email. You’ll be able to get a sense of their character and abilities before handing over your broken iPhone.
5. They Need Your Support!
Finally, local stores need the support of people like you.
Big companies are well-known to disrupt the livelihoods of these smaller businesses. It’s often a daily struggle to earn enough money to cover their basic expenses.
Continuing to frequent these stores is the best way to keep them open. You’ll be treated with a warm smile and hearty handshake in the process.
