  6. Shop Talk: CrackedMacScreen

    [fusion_text] We caught up with Trevor L. from CrackedMacScreen to learn more about his experience in the wireless repair industry. How did you end up in the wireless repair industry? Back in 2009 I was looking to upgrade my black Macbook and ended up finding one on Craigslist that had a broken crackedmacscreenscreen. I found the screen on eBay, downloaded a 9 step PDF install guide without reverse instructions and went to work on my Mac. Three hours and a bucket of sweat later the Mac was repaired. Word got around that I could fix the “white Macbook” and I knew that there was a definite need for it so I taught myself web design, bought a domain, got an 800 number with my mom doing the voiceover, and CrackedMacScreen was born.

    eTech Parts Customer Spotlight: Lexington Cell Phone Repair
    We caught up with James M. from Lexington Cell Phone Repair to learn more about his experience in the wireless repair industry. How did you end up in the wireless repair industry?Lexington Store Cell Phone Repair I found my way into the wireless industry through buying and selling items on eBay.  This is something I had always loved as I've been on eBay since 1999 and with e-commerce I knew there was always going to be unlimited opportunities.  Over the years I sold anything, from clothing to sports equipment, but mostly electronics.  When I first began to buy and sell iPhones in 2008 the profit margins were high, and then I began buying and selling broken devices as-is.  It didn't take long for me to realize that there were great opportunities to repair the devices to further increase those profit margins.  I ordered some parts off of eBay and just decided to dive right in.  After the first 6 months of teaching myself how to repair, I had spent a great amount of money due to making mistakes and destroying parts and motherboards, I was finally to the point that I began repairing devices within my community through word of mouth.  By 2010 I had quit my job and worked from home selling and repairing devices.  My business partner Stephen had been repairing devices on the side locally for quite a while when we met in 2011.  I had purchased quite a few iPhones from him in the past and decided to setup a meeting with him to discuss the plans I had drawn up to actually turn this into a storefront business and, shortly after, Lexington Cell Phone Repair, LLC was founded!
