liquid spill

Liquid spills are repairable with us at a reasonable cost. Most MacBook Air, MacBook Pro models leave our shop with the client paying from R1500 to R7000 depending on the problem. Apple often quotes between R9000 to over R15 000 to replace everything with a top tier for repair because it is easier for them to replace everything and charge you the client accordingly. We are able to replace the damaged components specifically and pass the savings on to you!

We charge an R950 (waivered – if quote accepted) assessment fee.

We are NOT responsible for any loss of data, make sure you have a backup of your data
