View Full Version : iPod repairs in UK, out of warranty
Oct 22, 2005, 05:40 AM
Does anyone know of any UK based companies that will repair iPods out of warranty for a shop that has been selling extended warranties? We have recently been told by all the normal routes for warranty repairs that they will not touch them.
We would be able to send potentially a lot of business their way, so either post a reply here, pm me or email me and I'll see what the deal would be. Thanks.

Is there anybody out there with even the remostest of ideas? I can't seem to find anywhere within the UK.
Oh well, guess I'm going to have to keep searching.

What repairs are needed? :confused:
And 3rd party electronics extended warranty companies are a pain in the ass, since not too many people want to jump through the hoops required to get the money.

i fix ipods, i am not a company but I would be willing to try to fix it for you, however, you will need to explain what the problem is.
Is it showing a folder with exclamation symbol?
A battery symbol?
Not connecting to computer?
Please be as specific as possible, that way I can give you an idea of the problem and an idea how much I would charge you to fix it.
Also, what type of ipod is it? Ipod 1st gen, 2nd gen, 3rd gen or 4th gen or mini?
You would need to send the iPod to me using Special Delivery (so its insured and pay for the parts, my time and the return postage by Special Delivery)
i would offer 30 days warranty on all parts I replace.
If you are interested please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and please cc. email@example.com
I usually reply within 24 hours
If you do not trust me then look up www.ukipodrepairs.com - however, i expect they are more expensive than me!

Thanks Layer34, your offer is very kind, however I am asking on behalf of a store that sells iPods and other apple hardware who has been offering extended warranties and just recently found that there was no company available to us that would deal with the repairs outside of the 1 year manufacturers'. For that reason, we need to be dealing with a company with some backing rather than an individual. We could potentially get dozens coming back over the next few years and need somewhere UK based and not too expensive where we can send them to. The problems can vary substantially and any simple problems, (software usually), we can resolve in store. I could even repair them myslef after a bit of technical reading, (I am an Electrical and Electronic Engineer graduate), but as I say, it needs to be somewhere where we can send it and the insurance company that deals with the extended warranties would trust otherwise our repair costs would probably not get refunded to us by them.
Ironically enough, I did try ukipodrepairs the other week, but I was unable to access it for some reason. Working fine now though. Thanks again.
