Long Warranty

All warranties are parts and labour (unless otherwise stated). They are honoured on a return to vendor basis. We have the right to repair, replace or refund for faulty items and this is at our discretion. Standard warranty restrictions apply.

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.

Free Diagnostic Service

That means that if you think that you need a repair you can bring it in with absolutely no fear of upfront or hidden costs. 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 :-). Come in and see why we have a reputation for being super helpful and friendly.
