How to Choose the Best Local Phone Repair Shop – And Why It’s Important

Knowing who to call when you need phone repair can save you a lot of time and money. And now during COVID-19, with the uncertainty of some Apple shops opening while others remain closed, the hunt for an available local phone repair shop can certainly weigh you down. Googling “repair shop near me” or “phone repair near me” gives you lots of results. With so many options, how do you decide who to trust? Should you just choose the repair shop that is closest to you? Or should you choose the one that offers the cheapest services?

Here we outline why it’s important to do your research in order to find the best local repair shop that meets your needs.


What does each local phone repair shop specialize in? What kind of services do they offer? These are a couple of things to consider during your search for the best repair shop. Some shops may offer smartphone repair, tablet repair, computer repair, and more. Others may specialize in iPhone repair specifically, focusing on the latest models like the iPhone XR, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone SE. As you are searching, be on the lookout for shops with expertise in the specific areas you need assistance in.


Another factor to consider is fair price. Most phone repair shops will charge you for both labor costs and part(s) replacement. As you are narrowing down your decision, call different local repair shops and get a specific quote on your potential repair.

Make sure you understand the warranty offered. Most warranties will be voided if the screen has physical damage, i.e. cracked screen. But a reputable repair shop will warranty a screen for manufacturing issues such as when a screen stops responding to touch.

Customer Reviews

Customers tell it like it is. Reading some of the shop’s customer reviews and testimonials on their website, social media, or Google will give you an idea of the shop’s level of customer service and customer satisfaction. You want to choose a shop that is customer-centric and has success stories. More importantly, look for customer reviews that are specifically about smartphone repair to give you an idea of the experience you will likely have with the shop if you choose them for repair work.
