Progress is being made, and there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Hello friends,

We’re working around the clock to get our new Mission Repair Express location done and open. In fact we are still ahead of schedule and with a grand opening date of 4/1/14, I’m almost 100% sure that we’ll be ready in just about 2 weeks. That means that things are going well with the build-out and these 12 hour days are going to pay off!

We have most of the sheet rock installed except for a few places that I’ve purposely left open for the wiring of the alarm and camera systems…and those are going in today!

The veins pumping data into our new Express location!

Now, all that’s left to do is “finish”. We are installing the remaining sheet rock, paneling, slatboard and countertops this weekend. After that the floor is going to be installed, and then I’m going to “install” a few employees so we can flip on the lights and unveil the world’s first Mission Repair Express…I have a feeling that these will start popping up all over the country. Ok, I won’t get ahead of myself just yet…one at a time Ryan 😉

So it’s back to work for me…thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you again shortly.

Sincerely, Ryan

Cracked iPad Screen? Need A Discount ?

Hello M:R Nation –

Have you recently had the unfortunate experience of cracking the glass on your iPad? I completely feel your pain x 3! If you read this blog on a regular basis, you should be privy to the fact that my son has cracked the glass on our family iPad 2, three times over. Ok, so one of those occasions may have been my wife, but I still can’t get an accurate story!

You understand that the thing needs to be repaired. Not only for the sake of using it, but for safety reasons as well. The glass on iPads are sharp and are not fused to the LCD like smartphones and other tablets, making it much easier for the glass to fall out and injure. However, you are also willing to wait on a good deal to come around!

I totally get it and am of the same school of thought!

It took me a good while to finally get going and fix our iPad and I’m surrounded by technicians on a daily basis that could fix me up in a matter of minutes. Just put some clear tape over it until Mission Repair runs another special. Why pay full price if you can wait a day and possibly get a discount? But sometimes that day turns into weeks and months or years!

How about we put an and to the waiting and get started on your repair today? To help this process along, I am going to offer a special blog reader only discount! If you email coupons@missionrepair.com, we will send you a 15% coupon code that you can use towards getting that iPad repaired! What better time to finally have your beloved iPad repaired than now?

This coupon is good for every model of iPad repair and for any service actually! So if you don’t have a broken price of glass, but do have an LCD issue, this coupon is for you as well! This coupon code will expire on 1/31/14 and can only be used once per order. So act fast and email us!

Cheers, Troy

What are you doing Sunday? We have a pigskin special you might want to read about.

Hello Mission Repair friends-

We’ve been in the news lately and even on NBC new last week. If you haven’t heard, Mission Repair (and businesses like Mission Repair) are offering safe and convenient repairs for your trusty hand held electronics (like iPads and tablets) and have been doing so for many years.

Did you stock up on Velveeta for this weekend?

Did you stock up on Velveeta for this weekend?

In fact, 2014 will start our 7th year in business…and the 2014 Superbowl is just right around the corner!

This weekend represents a couple of amazing football games. First, we’ve got the New England Patriots playing against the Denver Broncos at 3:00pm est. Brady vs. Manning; this ought to be a great game. Then immediately thereafter, we’ve got the San Francisco 49ers playing against the Seattle Seahawks at 6:30 est. Kaepernick vs. Wilson. Not to be outdone by the earlier game, this matchup promises to be equally as exciting!

If you watch football at all, you’re likely finding yourself already making predictions and leaning toward who you think will be in the Superbowl in February, even if your team has already been eliminated from the playoffs.

If you don’t watch football at all- that’s ok. Just take a glimpse of a game and pick the team that has your favorite colors – because that probably has more bearing on the outcome of these games that anything else. You get what I’m saying? It’s all up in the air and anything can happen!

Here’s what I’m going to do. Do yourself a favor and watch these games. It’s only two – or at least watch the highlights of the games. Whichever of these teams scores the most touchdowns…I’ll give 5% off of your new repair order for each touchdown.

So, let’s make this clear: I don’t care who wins or when. But out of these 4 teams, whichever team scores the most touchdowns (extra points, field goals, safety’s are not included) I’m talking the team with the most 6 POINT TOUCHDOWNS we will extend 5% off for each. For example, if the Denver Broncos score 7 touchdowns this weekend, we will offer 35% off of any repair on Monday.

So here’s the catch: watch the games and find out which team scored the most touchdowns this weekend. Then call us between 8am and 6pm central standard time on Monday January 20th, 2014 and ask for the FOOTBALL SPECIAL. This offer is valid ONLY ON NEW PHONE ORDERS MONDAY JANUARY 20TH, 2014. If you call before or after our operating hours on Monday, the special will be over! Additionally, you won’t be able to combine this special with any other offer. I mean, I’m really putting myself out on a limb here. 7 touchdowns is NOT out of the realm of any of these teams!! Denver has already done that in the regular season…so it’s completely possible.

866-638-8402.

What happens if there’s a tie between two teams? Will you be able to double your savings? No, but that would be interesting 😉

This is a potential boatload of money savings for you, and a great time to get that iPhone or iPod repaired. Hut, hut, hike!

Have a great weekend, we’ll be talking on Monday for sure.

Best, Ryan

So, You Received An iPad For Christmas?

Hello M:R Nation and New iPad Owners –

Congratulations on your brand new iPad! Whether this is your very first iPad or a replacement for an older model, you are ecstatic about the technology in your hands! This is a very understandable emotion to have!

Now, what happens if that technology accidentally slips out of your hands? As in, you drop it and damage your brand new gift! This is obviously not something you would like to think about at the moment, but it is an unfortunate reality of iPad ownership :-(. While there are many thoughts on how to prevent damaging your brand new iPad and many folks will go the whole life of their iPad ownership without said damage, I find that more often than not, if you have an iPad in your hands… it will be damaged at some point.

Cracked iPad Glass

My personal experience!

Now, that last statement I made could just be a product of my environment or maybe even my personal experience (3 damaged iPads later) but I think it’s important that you know what can and might just happen to your awesome new gift!

Ok, I think I have drilled the point long enough…but now what? Well, this is where Mission Repair comes in! We have worked for years perfecting the art of iPad Repair and we are well equipped to handle any iPad issue, BIG or small! We are your ally in this war against gravity and while we don’t offer much in the way of a gravity defying case, we are here to clean up the mess and make it right after the battle!

Enough of the analogies? Fair enough, let me give you some actual useful information that I think will be very important to any iPad user moving forward and please feel free to hand this out to your friends.

For starters, here is a direct link to our iPad Repair services: iPad Repair! Next, our contact information. Click here: Mission Repair and save us to your computer, smartphone or even iPad! It will be very useful to have this information close if you do happen to have an unfortunate spill! Lastly, let me give you peace of mind… We understand how nerve wrecking it can be to send your iPad out for repair and can assure you of this, we will treat your iPad as if it was our own. From start to finish, we will handle it with care and let only highly trained technicians complete repairs on your device. No, it will not be me repairing your iPad :-)!

If you have any further questions, please contact me directly at troy@missionrepair.com!

Cheers, Troy

iPad Air Glass Repair!

Hello M:R Nation –

The iPad Air is a phenomenal tablet. It has the looks, the function and the power that makes and Apple product… well, an Apple product. It is as thin as a pencil, as beautiful as the iPad Mini and faster than any iPad to date. An A7 chip and 64-Bit architecture will indeed do that for you.

When you spend $400-$500 on something, you expect it to be in the realm of awesomeness that iPad Air is in. You also expect to keep it for a long period of time and this is where Mission Repair comes in!

Cracked iPad Air screen

This is less than ideal…

We are here for you and your iPad Air and are prepared for any issue that you might have. Now, the most common issue that we have seen to date is the dreaded cracked screen. While the iPad Airs are still usable, it is very disruptive (to say the least) to maneuver around large shards of glass. It’s a dangerous game of “dodge the cut” everything you want to play “Candy Crush”.

While many of you reading this might not have a cracked screen just yet, let me just tell you that it is inevitable. My son has cracked his iPad 2 screen 3 times and that was with a case on it. It just happens. This is why you need to be ready and have us in your back pocket should such a time arise!

So if you are already in this pickle, here are a couple of helpful links to get your repair started:  iPad Air Glass Repair – Black and iPad Air Glass Repair- White. This will get you well on your way to a crack free iPad Air! If you are an iPad Air owner and want to keep us close, save our contact information (Mission Repair) and never hesitate to give us a call!

Cheers, Troy
