What is your go-to remedy when an electronic device at your business breaks down? At FixIT Mobile, we recommend all businesses — even small businesses — have a backup device they can turn to in emergencies. That’s because even if your equipment can be repaired the same day it breaks, that’s still a day of work lost unnecessarily. Whether it’s for you or one of your workers, keep a spare device on hand.
Unfortunately, what too many businesses do when a device breaks is dive into using the spare without bringing the broken piece of equipment in for repairs. They think they’ll do it “later.” But then later comes when your spare breaks down, and that’s when they get desperate.
Get in the habit of bringing your equipment in the same day it breaks, even if it’s after 5 p.m. We never want your business to be caught short.
There are times, however, when a device either can’t be repaired, or it just doesn’t make sense to repair it. Most often it is cheaper to fix electronics (and everything else), than it is to replace it, so always ask our technicians about repairs before you start shopping for a new device (tempting though that may be).
Schools especially may not have the budget for buying new electronic equipment and may rely heavily on repairs.
At FixIT Mobile, we’ll give you our expert opinion on whether you should repair or replace your equipment. Because we also sell equipment, however, we provide customers with a complete diagnostic report on their device. We want our customers to trust our opinions.
