We are proud to NOT be an "Authorized" service center. Here's why:

If you are an "Apple Authorized Center" you have to follow rules that have been set in place to create higher prices for customers. As an example, lets say you have a 2012 macbook pro and some liquid gets spilled onto the system and it no longer turns on. Typically, if you go to an apple authorized center with this issue you would only have 1 or 2 options. First would be to get the motherboard replaced at an astronomical price. Secondly would be to purchase a new computer at a similar astronomical price. If we are able to inspect the motherboard, find and a replace a $5 component for a mere $100 repair service, we have already saved you time and money even though apple would only replace the whole motherboard or convince you that you need a new computer. This only contributes to the ewaste and un-needed spending.

 

Often times we can replace smaller micro-soldered smd capacitors much cheaper then replacing whole boards. We are an independant  repair shop, not bound to any specific "rules for repair". You would never see a microscope or an ultrasonic cleaner in a "Authorized Service Center" because they only swap bigger parts rather than actually inspecting the smd (surface mount devices) parts and micro solder a new part.
Ask yourself, if you are forced to pay $400+ for a new motherboard rather than $100 for a $5 part is the other shop any better? Being bound to certain replacement models does not allow you to repair outside the box and save money and time for the customers. Finding a solution to your repair situation is what we are good at.

The only metrics we focus on are quality, customer service and fast turn-around times. Give us a try and we think you'll agree!
