Many struggle with the decision to repair or replace their smart device(s) when they break. To opt for the repair, the customer could be without their device for one hour or one week. If they opt to replace their device, they could lock themselves into a sticky two-year contract. The two factors that most influence this decision are price and convenience of the repair work.


Price

Cost drives every decision customers make, especially when it comes to the repair of a broken device that they use every hour of every day. New smartphones and tablets out-of-pocket cost anywhere from $650 to $1000. Cracked screen repairs estimate as low as $50 and as high as $200. However, that cost also depends on the newness of the device in need of the repair. If a customer buys a brand new Kindle Fire HD and cracks the screen the same month of its purchase, then the screen replacement will come at a higher cost. If the customer has an older Kindle Fire with a cracked screen, the screen repair will be easily $100 or less. 


Convenience

Having easy communication access is crucial; when that access is interrupted, it is important to get the device fixed and returned to the customer as soon as possible. Same-day repair shops are great for quick repairs like cracked screens. For more intense repair work, mail-in and warranty shops are the best. They diagnose the problem and provide an estimated cost of repair before doing the work. As with any repair work, be sure to research the company thoroughly before making a decision on who will perform the repairs.


No one likes it when their most valuable and used device breaks down or gets damaged, but it's important to know that you have options beyond buying a new phone or tablet and a two-year contract to go with it. More often than not, repairing your device is significantly cheaper than buying a replacement. Fortunately, PALCO has more than 25 years of experience repairing leading-edge technology.
