The Maple Leaf Festival was a ton of fun!

Hi friends,

ZIP – Monday has FLOWN by here at Mission Repair. I looked at the clock when Melanie and Adam (who sit in the office next to mine) turned off their computers and headed out the door.

What?! It’s 5:00pm already? I haven’t even begun my first blog of the day yet. Sheesh I might be losing my touch; I’m going to work on it.

Last weekend we had our Deuce and a Half in the Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin City, Kansas. It was a brisk Saturday morning as we packed up and headed out to get the rig ready for the mass of 75,000 parade goers that line the streets each October. We had 17 HUGE bags of candy to hand out (we’ve run out before that’s no fun), flipped on some “Vietnam Era” music and had a great time.

Above is a shot of the group (I’m behind the camera) just before the parade started. Left to right that’s Casey, Neal, Martha, Lennie, Jordyn, Michael, Baby Mason, Lexi, Derrick and Dandra in the back of the truck hiding in the camouflage!

Since I couldn’t stand it, I had to post a couple of pics of the cutest baby around. Here’s Derrick and his boy Mason up close sporting his very own custom Mission Repair tshirt! How cool is that!?!

Finally, one more shot with Mason who is ready for some action. Truth be told, he got to ride in a stroller and he actually fell asleep before the parade route was over. It’s good to be a toddler 😉 I’m going to start training him on iPad repairs next week…we’ll see how he does!

Ah, I’m just kidding. The technicians that we employ are all over the age of 18 even though they may act like children sometimes. You know who I’m talking about. Jake.

Well the parade was a lot of work like usual, but the reward is the packed front office all day today. We always meet a ton of new people and customers when we do these parades. It’s just part of the fun here at Mission Repair.

Have a good evening everyone- take care, Ryan

Faster Service On 11″ And 13″ Macbook Air Screen Repairs!

Hello M:R Nation –

Things at Mission:Repair are always moving at a fast pace. From our Customer Service to our Shipping and Receiving departments, things just fly. This is by design. The quicker we can receive, test, repair and quality check your device, the better for everyone. So you can imagine my elation when we shave some time off of a particular process. We have done so with our Macbook Air Screen services! What used to take a full week to repair, has now been shaved to only 72 Hours!

Macbook_Air

Why would it take 72 hours (let alone 1 Week) to repair you ask? Well, the design on the newer Macbook Air is very thin and complex. So thin in fact, there is not even a removable LCD screen in it! It is built in layer by layer in the top lid. This brings a whole new complexity to the repair and most folks could not do it in their basement. To repair these computers, requires a clean room and other expensive equipment that you can’t easily come by. It is a pain staking repair and I would not wish it on my worst enemy 🙂

So, with a little ingenuity and a lot of practice, we have quickened our turn around time on this service. My technicians are working hard to to get this time down even further and you should expect to see another post on this very soon! So please allow me to give you a short cut to these new and improved services:

Glossy 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

Matte 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

 Glossy 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

 Matte 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hours Turnaround)

Until we meet again!

Cheers, Troy

Anti-Glare for your MacBook Air! Why should you care? Read below, take care.

Hello everyone – you might have read our blog from last week about our MacBook Air “Glossy to Matte” upgrade!

Have you seen our price? $99 installed for the upgrade. It’s amazing and the best price on the planet!

I know, for those that have the MacBook Air (I use one at home and love it) but the glossy screen can be a bit harsh at times. I have a room in my basement with fluorescent lighting…it’s the room with my MacBook Air..and the glare drives me crazy at times.

I’m personally ordering this service so that glare won’t cause me any more distractions. Once again, I love the computer but the screen is just a little too much in my room!

If we just performed this service on Samsung Televisions. I have the same problem with that!!

So this is just a reblog since all of the commotion about this product has our customers and the competition up in arms. It’s OK, it happens all the time. It’s good to be the king 😉

OK everyone, I’m out of here for the day. I’ll be back tomorrow and we’ll talk then!

Take care, Ryan
