Hello folks, it’s been a heck of a week here at the Mission Repair Headquarters. We’re opening up our new sales office and I even moved my personal office as well. It’s a lot like moving out of a house to be honest! I was in the same office for several years and it’s inevitable for me. . .the longer I stay in one place the more “dug in” I get.
It was a good time to “clean house” so to speak and I was able to get rid of a bunch of extra stuff that I’ll never need again. I kind of feel like if I don’t use it within 6 months, then I probably don’t need it 😉 So I’m all settled into my new space upstairs and it feels amazing!
So I was doing my morning reading and it’s come to my attention that I need to talk about our repair services on a high level. Specifically, and simply, WE DON’T CHARGE TO DIAGNOSE YOUR DEVICE. I don’t care if you send in an iPod, iPhone, MacBook, Tablet or any other device that we currently repair. . .we will ALWAYS diagnose for free!
Why is this important?
It builds trust between you, our customers, and Mission Repair, your friend in the service industry. We don’t charge for diagnosis because we are happy to tell you what’s going on and we’re confident that you will proceed with our repairs. Why are we so confident? Because our pricing is realistic and not over-inflated. We diagnose correctly. We address your concerns and let you make the final decision on what your repair threshold is and let you remin in control of the repair.
If we charged for the diagnosis, you may feel “obligated” to complete a repair because we have you on the hook for some pre-determined amount of money.
It’s all about building trust and starting our repairs out right.
We could charge for our iDevice diagnosis, but we don’t. What happens when we spend time looking at a device, perform an evaluation and then a customer requests it to be delivered back without having a repair done? First you’ll never have a high-pressure salesperson trying to sell a repair. Secondly, we’ll lose money but this happens so infrequently it’s just part of the business.
Once again, it’s all about trust.
Being fair and keeping our technicians honest with their findings and offering our customers the best possible end solution to get that expensive device back into their hands working like new is our goal!
There it is. . .that’s why Mission Repair performs free diagnostic services. It’s a matter of principle. Why pay for it elsewhere when we’ll do it for free?
Take care, have a great day. . .Ryan
