Out of warranty Mac repair services

I offer out-of-warranty Mac repair services.

I charge a flat fee of $60 plus HST to perform a diagnosis and prepare a written estimate of possible repairs. If you choose to have me undertake the repairs the initial charge is credited towards your repair bill. A 30-day warranty on labour is included. Replacement components are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.

I am based in Saint John. You will drop off and pick up your Mac to ensure that you meet me personally and have first-hand knowledge that your valued Mac is in good hands.

Product repairs include: MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Mini.


If your Mac has encountered any of the following problems I can usually make a very cost-effective repair:


Liquid spill - liquid damage is never covered by warranty and replacing the main logic board is quite expensive - it is much more cost-effective to repair it.



Broken LCD screen - the components can be replaced rather than the entire LCD assembly.




Motherboard (Main Logic Board) issues such as no video/no Wi-Fi/no power - replacing the main logic board is quite expensive - it is much more cost-effective to repair it.



Hard drive issues - the graphic below may mean the hard drive has failed and must be replaced. I can usually recover some or all of your data from the failed drive. I can replace the hard drive with a new one or with a Solid State Drive which will improve performance dramatically.



Operating system issues - if your Mac is dramatically slowing down or freezing, I can safely backup your data, reinstall the operating system (MacOS) and recover your data as it was.
