In-house technicians with years of experience

If you are experiencing any problems that are not listed below, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you and provide a quote, and advise as to what your repair options are and how much it will cost.


Logic Board Repair

Liquid Damage Repair

A full service, including ultrasonic cleaning, logic board repair and examination under a microscope to bring your Mac back to life.

Our Repair Process

1 - Bring in your device, anytime

You will be quoted exactly the same as on our website - a fixed labour fee. There is no need for us to see your device to quote you, we just need a simple description of the fault.

2 - Receive a call/email update

We will assess your device, and call/email you with an update - or to say your device is repaired. Depending on complexity and if parts are required, this can be 1-5 working days.

3 - Collect your repaired device

Once any parts have been authorised and your device is repaired, you can collect your computer/laptop. We accept card, cash or bank transfer - you can even pay online before collection.

Another shop fixed this iMac before and used hot glue/silicone to reattach the screen, not genuine Apple adhesive strips!When picking a shop to repair your Apple product, make sure they specialise in Apple repairs so they don’t do a bodge job like this! The official adhesive is specially designed and cut, so that it holds the display securely, whilst allowing the iMac to be opened again for service.

This USB C port was completely ripped off when the laptop was dropped while charging. The customer thought it was a write-off and time to get another one.

This PS5 came in due to randomly turning off. Like many we have seen, in some cases, standing up the console causes the liquid metal to drip down over time, and cause air gaps between the processor and heatsink. Another easy fix for the bits team. #repair #bournemouth
