The staff at TechRx can repair damage such as cracked screens on your electronic devices, from tablets to cellphones and more, helping you extend their life.

Cracks, battery problems? Repairing that smartphone can be easy!

Extend the life of your phone, tablet, laptop and more with some TLC from TechRx

Have you been frustrated by such issues as a cracked screen, the frequent need to charge your battery and other things that make using your smartphone less than enjoyable?

Were you aware that such problems can be easily fixable, without having to send your phone away? Chris Voute, founder and president of TechRx Smartphone and Computer Repair in South Surrey and Walnut Grove, says many people are unaware of the alternatives.

“I like the concept of a second life,” he says. “Why take something and put it in the melting bins when most cellphone problems take half an hour to fix?”

Tech innovation benefits you

With staff engaging in regular updates, TechRx is “morphing and changing as we develop new methods for recycling and repairs,” Voute says. Before you decide your device is done, bring your smartphone, tablet or laptop in to learn about repair options.

What to do with your unwanted phone?

If you don’t like the idea of waste, consider Voute’s statistics about used smartphones: “30 per cent are traded back in, 30 per cent are given to a family member or friend or stored in a drawer, 30 per cent are sold privately, and 10 per cent of phones are thrown away.” You might want to consider letting TechRx find your old phone a new home, he says, as there’s a large market for reconditioned phones in developing countries. “Your old phone could be considered new to someone who’s never owned one!”

Ask about money-saving options

While their repair shop wizards work wonders repairing your devices, you can also trade in your old cellphone for a new one at TechRx. Whether you use your old technology for credit towards a new device or not, it’s easy to buy your new phone outright rather than undertake a contract – including a warranty. Either way you’ve got opportunities to save money on your upgrade.

Keeping electronics out of the landfill

TechRx is a big proponent of recycling, Voute says. That’s why they also take on repairing small appliances, computers and more, anything bigger than tablet or smaller than a microwave. “Those items make a big impact in the landfill because they’re not really compressible,” he says. Ask about their mobile service, where TechRx technicians come to you to do the work!
