Call the “Apple Repair Guy” first!
It always makes me laugh when people call me the “Apple Repair Guy”, but I guess it kinda makes sense after having completed a few thousand mobile device repairs (phone, tablets, computers, game consoles) and a few hundred laptops/computer upgrades. When people ask me what I do for a living, I simply tell them that I save lives.
Have you ever been without your phone, tablet, or computer for more than 1 or 2 days in the last 10 years? Seriously, ask yourself this question and answer honestly (vacation time doesn’t count). Depending on which decade you were born, you might be ok without it. But in today’s world, everything revolves around our mobile devices. The personal satisfaction I get from the look on my customer’s faces when they get their repaired devices back is priceless. This is the main reason I love what I do. For most people, a cell phone or tablet is mainly for communication, fun & entertainment, but for many, it’s an indispensable critical business tool required to get the job done and that paycheck.
In the last 4-5 years, another popular service in demand I’ve been offering is computer and laptop upgrades, more specifically with Apple products, since they are so expensive to purchase new. A new iMac or Macbook Pro can cost you easily between 2000$-4000$, depending on the specifications you choose when purchasing your device. But the problem is, after a few years only, most users will notice a considerable drop in performance. This lack of performance is mainly because of 2 things: poor quality hardware parts (like regular SATA hard drives and insufficient memory) and finally some major OSX software upgrades demanding optimal hardware resources which are pushed by Apple to users every September. I can assure you, these updates are pushed to your devices mainly to slow down your machines, not necessarily to increase functionality or security with your system like they say it’s for. We live in a consumer world, and like many other businesses out there, they don’t want your product to last forever, they eventually have to sell you something else. Again, this is where I step in and save your bank account, by offering SSD and Memory upgrades options.
