Possible delays & Repair Procedures:
We do try our best to ensure repairs are carried out as soon as we receive the device, hence we do stock all the parts required ready to be used on your repair. However, as a company and with experience we so get the odd ones that the repair does take longer than expected this depends on the nature of the fault, at any given point in time that a repair is taking longer than expected we would notify the customer giving them the reason and how long it would take approximately and full updates will be sent to the customer as the repair makes progress.
Regards to diagnostic repairs, the process can take longer than normal repairs as it would need to be looked into by our technicians and trace where exactly the fault lies. There is no guarantee that your device would be fixed with regards to diagnostics repairs, as at times a device can turn out to be beyond economic repairs, however out of 10 devices we do get chances of fixing 9 out of 10 devices.
Liquid damage, motherboard and Software related faults could take between 7 to 14 days.

We will send you an email or ring you up to explain the fault found and request further payment to cover these costs, however it is entirely down to you to decide whether to fix the additional fault or not. Supposed you opted out not to go ahead with the repair in the case of additional faults detected, we will return the device without carrying out the repairs, again the handling charge of £10 will be deducted and the rest refunded to your card that was used to make the payment.
