Q&A with Peter Bowes, Owner
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
We specialize in liquid-damage recovery and have recovered devices that customers thought were beyond help. We have restored pictures [that customers] thought [were] lost, recaptured contacts [that were] never backed up, and returned devices [that were] considered unrepairable.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Making a difference in people's electronic-device life. We sometimes really do save a mobile life.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
We can repair almost anything given a little time. While most repairs are done while you wait, we have a very dogged determination to get a device fixed, using high-quality parts and extending a six-month warranty.
