Technology helps us in so many ways, from enabling commerce to bridging the distance between friends and family. We’ve come to rely on electronics in everyday life, so when the phone or computer or network unexpectedly breaks, the impact can be huge: enter Notebook Repair UK to save the day.
We all know that awful feeling of dropping our smartphone – often resulting in a cracked screen (or water damage, depending on where it’s been dropped…), or losing work because the computer or network has suddenly decided to pack in. The cost of replacing these items can be significant, so it makes sense to have expensive tech repaired when possible.
Of course, this presents another dilemma: how to find a reputable repairs company able to mend broken gadgets, or that will pay you for the parts so you can invest in a replacement.
Notebook Repair UK has been in business for decades; managing director and Bramhall resident John Landells set up the company in the 1980s, establishing the website in 2008. Originally from Glasgow, John has lived in Bramhall for the last 30 years, raising his children here and enjoying the community aspect of being right in the heart of the village, including helping out the Bramhall Together Trust at events
Initially, John set up his business in Manchester with factories in Cambridge and Rugby, later moving across to Stockport. The move proved fortuitous and the company does a roaring trade; based in Vernon Mill, Notebook Repair UK has 400,000 parts in stock for laptops, iPads, iPhones and more, making it a local lifesaver for Stockport residents when their gadgets give up the ghost.
John manages a team of seven electronics experts, all of whom live locally. Together, the team rescues and repairs machines from consumers and businesses alike, breathing life back into iPads, smartphones and computers. When goods cannot be saved, John will usually trade in machines for the parts, which can be helpful when it comes to covering the cost of a replacement.
The business welcomes dozens of visitors to its premises every day and thousands of people visit the website daily, too, often in search of specific components. Parts can be bought in the shop or online – the company shipped goods to 44 countries worldwide.
Notebook Repair UK also buys electronics that are past their prime, both from individuals and businesses, including a number of well-known national firms with a value of up to £1.5million. Companies and organisations often heave ex-lease electronics that need to be disposed of; rather than paying someone to take them away, businesses can make money in return for turning their unwanted machines over to Notebook Repair UK.
The machines are wiped of data, cleaned up and repaired to ensure they still have plenty of use left in them and can be sold on at affordable prices. There are all kinds of bargains to be had, with Windows 10 laptops available for under £120 – the computers are fitted with a fresh install of Windows and also come with a three-month warranty for peace of mind. There are plenty of other deals to be had, with electronics typically sold at 40 per cent less than their value in the shops.
In some instances, customers call on the company with requests to recover lost data after all other avenues have failed, and Notebook Repair UK has the skills to pull this data back from the beyond in many cases. The business can also help out with the removal of information stored on devices, in-keeping with the Data Protection Act, using MoD-approved software.
Whether it’s a cracked iPhone, faulty tablet or lifeless laptop that needs fixing, pop over to Notebook Repair UK or submit a repair request online. You’ll receive an estimate for the cost initially, followed by a fixed price when the gadget has been assessed – Notebook Repair UK will always tell you if it’s worth repairing your machine or not.
