We’ve all probably been there at some point or another. Trying to resell or re-purpose our old phones only to be met with a road block because the device needs repair. Perhaps you don’t want to get rid of your device, but a broken phone is of no use to you and you don’t have the money to purchase a brand new one. In these times it can be a little less expensive to just have it repaired or fixed. The issue is finding someone to do the fix job if you can’t do it yourself. Finding these places locally let alone slightly out of town can sometimes be a challenge, and if you have no shops even remotely near you then you’re right back where you started, without a solution.
So how can you tell if there are any local shops or repair people who can get your device fixed up like new? A service called FixFinder wants to be your one stop shop for tracking down and locating any local repair shops that specialize in fixing phones and other mobile devices. According to FixFinder, each and every month more than 600,000 Americans Google search how to fix their broken smartphone devices. Of course, if your device isn’t physically damaged you can always rely on the warranty program through your chosen carrier, assuming it’s still under warranty. You could also utilize the handset insurance if you have it, but neither of those are immediate fixes. You’ll end up waiting the better part of a week or so before you get your handset replacement, sometimes longer.
This is where FixFinder comes in. It connects people to a database of over 4,000 mobile device fixers from around the nation with search filters like zip code so you can locate the nearest fixer to your local area and get your device repaired quickly. FixFinder also mentions that in addition to giving consumers a hub to find a place for device repairs, they offer to buy used or broken devices so worst case scenario if there’s nowhere nearby to get your device fixed, FixFinder could end up just offering to buy your device from you. You could then turn around and use that money towards a new device. FixFinder also presents a way for consumers to compare prices from other local and national buyers of mobile devices so they can where they get the best price for their unused mobile phones or tablets. You can find out more details at FixFinder.com, and if you have any used or broken mobile devices you can easily and quickly get started on either selling it or getting it fixed.
