Apple Computer Repairs Apple Computer Repairs Icon Image

For 2 decades we have been repairing Macbooks and iMacs. As they have become more popular, demand for their repair has continued to increase – as has our skill in working with them.

Now we can say that we offer a complete and comprehensive repair solution for Apple devices from simple software to Logic Board level repairs.

How much does this cost you ask?

Well, it’s probably cheaper than you think!

iPhone and iPad Repairs iPhone and iPad Repairs Icon Image

It seems that everybody thinks that they can fix iPads and iPhones these days! That’s why we spend a good chunk of our time repairing the problems that have been caused by poor quality work.

All too often people get work done with substandard parts fitted incorrectly with a general lack of skill, attention to detail or focus on the quality of the completed repair.

But isn’t it better to go with the cheapest quote?

Absolutely not! Buy cheap, buy twice!

The Media Shop is located within Ellesmere Ports Market. We are located ‘at the back’ of the market near the entrance/exit closest to Farmfoods (York Road). If you come in from the entrance facing Asda you will need to walk through the food-court area and then turn right at the far side. It is very important that you do not confuse us with other so-called ‘repair’ shops in the market because they have terrible reputations for bad work, parts and service!

The Market itself was re-homed into it’s current position around 10 years ago and is now housed in a modern, warm, well lit building and both the main market and flee market are fully indoor . Our market also has a large food-court serving a range of hot and cold food and drinks. So why not get a nice cuppa when you come and see us?

No, absolutely not. At The Media Shop we are happy to help. We believe, and always have done over our 20 years in business, that fundamental to offering a fantastic and welcoming service is to offer FREE AND FRIENDLY ADVICE. Further to this we also offer a completely FREE DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE.

We will chat to you about the problem and your needs, then we will thoroughly test and assess your item. Once this is done we will give you a recommendation as to best way to fix the problem along with an estimate of the cost. Once all this has been done you can decide whether to go ahead with our recommended action or not. If you do, then GREAT – lets go. But if you decide not to then that’s fine and there will be no charge! For all your tech needs since 1999!

Yes! Absolutely! First and foremost we are just a good bunch of lads. We are happy to have a chat with you about pretty much anything that you might want to. It is true that we are most comfortable talking about anything and everything to do with TECH, but if you want to talk about the weather, or the football then we aren’t going to stop you :-).
