St. Patrick’s Day…it’s not easy bein’ green.

Sound familiar?

A quote from the great – Kermit the Frog – “it’s not easy bein’ green” has been a theme over at our new location that is due to open on 4/1/14. Why is that catchy Sesame Street song “sticking” do you ask?

We added some “Mission Repair Green” tint to the front glass at Mission Repair Express and when the sun hits the window just right…well…the picture tells a lot below:

It's not easy being green.

It’s not easy being green.

So it’s a bit TOO green. Like emerald green. Everywhere! It feels like you’re swimming in a Shamrock Shake (a McDonalds treat if you didn’t know). The bottom line: Our excitement to add a little color took our “company colors” to a whole new level. We have a solution to fix this “St. Patrick’s Day” hue – so don’t worry. I promise you won’t get queasy if you stop by our new site at our grand opening!

Speaking of grand opening – it’s set for April, 1st, 2014. However we are running a bit AHEAD of schedule and you heard it here first; I am now shooting to be open starting on St. Patrick’s day 2014. A fitting day to commence the GRAND OPENING OF MISSION REPAIR EXPRESS!

So, this is aggressive for us and we’re on the right track. Flooring is going to be installed this weekend then it’s just the final touches that need to be completed. Will it be done? Will we have the luck of the Irish? Irish I was complete with project 😉 A silly pun is all the motivation that I need!

Thanks for all of the interest and calls about our new Mission Repair Express location – the press release will hit soon for the masses to read. But you heard it here first, another reason that check in with us here on the blog.

Thanks friends,
Ryan

So it snowed in Kansas City yesterday. Just a bit….

Hello everyone, we’re back in the office and at full operations at Mission Repair – almost.

Yesterday was incredible though – in fact Kansas was declared in a “State of Emergency” and even the Kansas Government shut down yesterday due to the Winter Storm “Q” that blanketed us with snow. We actually opened up Mission Repair yesterday and worked until about noon- then we took a vote and the employees wanted to leave for home before the roads got any worse. It was a good decision on their part…

Here’s a shot of my backyard when I got home:

There’s my two dogs in the background, and that’s about 15″ of snow covering my patio table. It’s the biggest dump of snow that I’ve ever seen since I moved to Kansas in 2001. It was a sight to see! I did use to live in Colorado, which gave me some experience with the snow. In fact, yesterday’s Kansas snow was a “normal” Colorado snow – “normal” in that you’d still go to work or school and Colorado didn’t “shut down”. It’s interesting to see the differences in people’s attitude from different states. Kansas City just isn’t prepared for this kind of weather to hit…

So the airports were all shut down, and we didn’t receive any shipments in from FedEx yesterday. In fact, it’s 10:34am we we still haven’t received any today…but we’ve been told that they will arrive.

Rest assured that we are fully staffed (actually only one employee didn’t make it in today!) and we will get these repairs pumped out as soon as possible.

Thanks for sticking in there with us. This was a strange storm that has seems to have moved on. We will keep you posted on our progress.

Thanks, Ryan

Did you know that we repair logic boards?

Hi again everyone, I just got off the phone with a customer that asked “do you repair iPod logic boards?”

My answer is “YES”!! We are a repair company and we can repair logic boards. The logic board is the main board (also called mother board or the brain of each unit) and sometimes these boards can fail over time. They can even fail when a unit is dropped or if it comes in contact with water. We can surface mount solder or through-hole solder. Heck, a lot of the batteries in these “iDevices” are soldered on so your repair company needs to know how to do this! We have the diagnosing capabilities to resolve tons of unknown or nearly undetectable issues.

Why is this important?

Well there are other businesses out there that DON’T offer logic board repairs. This is a key ingredient to having a successful repair business because we can do it all. Don’t settle for less.

Not only can we repair iPod logic boards, we can repair iPhone, iPad, and any laptop computer logic board (this includes Windows based computer and Mac Laptops). If we can’t repair it, there’s NO CHARGE – because frankly there are times that the repair can be too entailed or the circuitry can be too fried or beyond repair, but we are up for the challenge.

So rest assured when you send your device to us, you have the full gamut of options and we’re on your side.

Thanks, Ryan
