Just a quick update on the expansion at our Mission Repair location in Lenexa. We just added a new shipping and receiving space that is sure to streamline our process immediately.
Here’s Lennie after a long hard day at work getting some of the counters installed, I think he must have put in 16 hours of “construction” work on Saturday into the late evening hours. Good job Lennie.
I can’t wait to see this new space when it’s completed. We do have shipping and receiving capability at our location in Mission, Kansas but it’s already cramped in there so I can only imagine how jealous Derrick will be when he sees this. It looks like there’s just a little more tile work to do and some trim work, then this area is ready to house 4 employees. Wonderful.
Speaking of shipping and receiving…did you see my last post about shipping devices into us? Let me remind you that even though we have less than a .1% shipping damage rate, some packages do get damaged or lost in shipping. It doesn’t matter if you use FedEx, UPS or the Post Office, they all do it. Start your repair off right by making sure that you package your device correctly (in a box, not an envelope!) per our online shipping instructions here. It will make life a whole lot easier for you. If you’re local to us and want to stop on by, you don’t need a tape gun for that!
Take care, Ryan
Good morning and Happy November!
Halloween here at Mission Repair was scary…scary fun and scary busy! We had a fun day here at our offices and there’s still just a little bit of Halloween candy left here at the front desk. I’m sure someone will finish it off for us!
We had a ton on trick-or-treaters and even adults dressed up and picking up repairs. Here’s a scary ghost with her repaired iPhone in hand:
We ran a special for giving 15% off your repair if you came in with a costume on…so we had a line from funny to scary to one almost inappropriate costume that I personally found hilarious…but it was all in good fun.
Thanks to everyone that participated in the event at Mission Repair, and we appreciate your business.
Talk to you soon, Ryan
Hi again, it’s been a fun blogging day here at Mission Repair!
I was eating lunch at a new restaurant downtown in Mission, Kansas today and they had a “sandwich board” out front:
It was kind of perfect because I was just thinking the same thing about Mission Repair. We do want to make our customers really happy. Of course! Get it “Mission?” In Mission. About Mission Repair!
So I snapped this pic and wanted to post it. “Nuff said”. Unless you want to talk more about it, just give us a call at 844-459-0105 and we’re here for you!
Take care, Ryan

Good morning, I can’t really believe that I haven’t said it yet, but Happy October!
Wait a second, it’s already October 16th? I’m losing time somewhere. Somehow. Lately I’m been doing a lot of work with my technicians, it’s bringing me back to my roots. Speaking of my roots, can anyone tell me what this is?
If you guessed an “Auto-Inject Floppy Disk Drive”, then you really know your vintage computer parts! This was one of my first projects in the business back in 1994; testing these drives for functionality. It was then that my father purchased a floppy disk drive repair business (consisted of a single employee and a few pieces of test equipment) and off we went into the floppy disk drive repair business for ourselves to compliment our monitor repairs and other component level services. The floppy drive repair business was so good that were were performing hundreds per week…but like all technology, things are bound to change! Needless to say, our floppy disk drive business is no longer around; but it was the precursor to what Mission Repair is today.
While I’m still the master at repairing old floppy disk drives, that doesn’t pay the bills. At Mission Repair we are doing everything we can to stay on top of the technological curve and adapt to new products when we can. If there’s something that you’d like to see us repair, give us a call! This means that I won’t get my hands dirty – this week I soldered on a blown capacitor on a older PCB for a customer that has been coming to us for years…he just likes the way I solder 😉
Check us out, we’re here for you. Have a great day, and oh yes, Happy October.
Take care, Ryan
It’s not often that I write blogs in the wee hours of the evening (this is my special sleeping time on most nights!) but I’m anxiously awaiting our Unique Visitor counter to roll over to 1,000,000!! I wonder if it will do it?
Or will it turn over like a car odometer and go back to 1? Are we Y2K compliant? Yikes, who knows!! If there’s a stock market crash tomorrow, don’t blame the Mission Repair Blog…
At the moment it appears that we just need a few more readers (less than 100!) to view the blog…then I’m giving away a brand new iPad Air. That’s right, you still have time to learn about the giveaway (click here for details!) but I’ll stay up and watch for the winner. I will announce the winner right here tomorrow morning, so come back to see if you’ve won.
I’m rooting for you, thanks for reading, I’ll be right here.
Take care, Ryan
