Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do I do if I have an issue with a device repaired by The Repair Depot?

A: Every device repaired by The Repair Depot has a 90-day Parts and Labor Warranty that begins on the day the shipment was received by you as noted in our shipping provider’s database. You may return a malfunctioning device for service at any time during this 90-day period at no additional charge to you. The malfunction must be due to the original damage. If your device experiences a new damage after the repair, this warranty would not apply. A new repair would need to be scheduled.

Q: If my device cannot be repaired, will you send me a new one?

A: If your device cannot be repaired below the coverage amount of your insurance policy or below the value of the device, we will attempt to provide a replacement device. If we are unable to find a replacement device in a timely manner, we may cash settle (for insured devices) or return the damaged device to you.

Q: My device has a password. Do I have to give it to you?
