We believe that advice should always be free, it's not ALWAYS about getting paid for everything little thing you do but offering the very best customer service possible, on ALL your Imac, MacBook, Ipad and Iphone repairs. Remember not so long ago when it was NOT just about making as much as you could as quick as could, but providing the very best service well call me old fashioned, but that still stands at Platinum strive to provide the very customer service.
If we can sometimes give help and advice or a quick repair over the counter or the phone it is usually without any payment to ourselves, we may ask you to volunteer a small donation to the Charity box, between us we have amassed a huge amount of useful and some not so useful knowledge over the years, that helps us to provide the very best customer service there's a sign as you walk through the door of platinum Computers repair centre that says "advice is always FREE, it may not be what you wnt to hear, but it is free ", and we stand by it.


I tend to like Apple devices over any other Tablet or Mobile phone, mainly due to the security, as with Platinum Computers and Apple security and customer personal data very seriously, as you have probably read in paper or on TV Apple are very reluctant to allow anyone access to a device, and this extends to there Apps, any App you download from the App store has been vetted by Apple, were as Android and Windows devices just about anyone can make an App for those devices, so you can never be 100% sure what could be hidding in the App.

All our Apple repairs are done by us in our Apple repair centre based in Hartlepool, so you know where your Apple device is at all times, wether your drop of your MacBook, Imac, Ipad or Iphone for repair, if you can't get it in to us no bother we can come and collect with in Hartlepool.
Apple repairs cover such a large part of our repairs now, as Apple devices become more and more popular, so there are more and more on the market, and accidents happen, get dropped or things sometimes just go wrong.
We offer a wide range of repair services for your Apple device, only the Apple logo appears on your MacBook or Imac or you just dropped your Iphone or Ipad and damaged the screen, we have it covered, ALL our work is gauranteed, we work on a very quick turn around on all our repairs, business devices are usually prioriticed as businesses are usually dependant on them, but still our turn around for all our repair services is still possibly the quickest in Hartlepool, we have been know to take in a repair and contact the customer before there cup of coffee has stopped spinning, one of our repair videos for an iphone screen replacement repair was completed and the customer contacted in 16 minutes WOW now thats what I call quick Iphone screen replacement of course not all repairs are that quick if we have to order parts or are awaiting components, delivery of those could hold the repair up, but we hold a large range of new components in stock which enables us to complete most Apple repairs so quickly. So don't worry your device is in safe hands, we treat your device as if it was one of our own.
