It’s that time of year again, and at Mission Repair we’re getting the sense that school is starting up again. It’s not because my wife is a teacher 😉 it’s because we are getting calls from IT departments all over the country ready to spin up their repair programs.
Since a lot of schools are now Apple 1 to 1 (meaning that every student is “issued” an Apple device like an iPad or MacBook Air) it’s becoming more common for schools to send their devices into Mission Repair for service than using AppleCare. In fact, we’ve successfully saved schools hundreds of thousands of dollars by helping them understand that purchasing AppleCare on on those devices just doesn’t add up. While most districts do buy the extended warranties, at the end of the day it’s not “natural failures” (that AppleCare covers) that are the issue. It’s kids dropping the devices and cracking them.
Yes, a lot of our business comes from schools around the nation. Today, we signed up a new school from the State of Washington that has mountains of iPads that they want to begin repairing the first week of school next month. If you’re a school IT director, are looking for the best repair center in the country (in my opinion!) and need to use Net 30 Purchase orders for your repair program…click here for more information. We’ll be glad to help you out.
Thanks, have a good afternoon and don’t forget to get those school supplies purchased soon!
Take care, Ryan
