How to Set Your Prices: A Guide for Phone Repair Shops
Scour the web for information on how phone repair shops set their prices and you’ll be disappointed with the results - there’s just not much publicized advice out there on what to charge your customers for phone repairs. Are the repair techs hiding something? It’s no secret that anyone can easily find out phone repair profit margins with a little bit of research on the costs of replacement parts and the average cost of a repair. But how do repair shops set their prices? We asked Ryan Galvan, owner of a phone repair shop in Pensacola, Florida in an impromptu interview, how he goes about pricing his repairs.

Always on the lookout for quality products, we are excited to announce a new partnership with LCDGlue. This quality Liquid Optically Clear Adhesive (LOCA) is cured using ultraviolet light. Use of LOCA in wireless repair includes bonding OLED and LCD units to new glass during glass-only repairs. Technicians choose LOCA when transparency is non-negotiable.
Why LCD Glue and the Reasons eTech Training prefers it:
Here at eTech Parts and eTech Training we pride ourselves in supplying high quality parts and tools. With this in mind, we are now carrying LCD Glue and it is what we consider the highest quality LOCA (liquid optical clear adhesive) for glass only refurbishment. Listed below are some of the major reasons we use LCD Glue compared to other brands on the market.
Why LCD Glue:
- Clarity : Most brands of LOCA will start to show a “yellowing” after curing the adhesive under a UV light or after several weeks of refurbishing. LCD Glue has yet to show any yellowing at all. This product also has a clarity of 99.5%. You can see the difference in how vivid and clear the LCD Glue is compared to other LOCA products.
- Shelf life: LCD Glue has a shelf life of 1 year. The product comes in completely blacked out tubes so there is no possibility of UV rays diminishing the life of the LOCA.
- Ease of use: LCD Glue is easy to work with and has fast curing time under a UV light. This makes it easier to fix mistakes during the refurbishment process and also allows for quicker clean-up time.
With over 15 years’ experience in marketing, retail and wireless, Michelle James is no stranger to building things from the ground up – in fact, it might be what she’s best at. After 9 years spent creating innovative sales solutions and in-store campaigns as Marketing Director for Levi Strauss & Co., Michelle lived “a marketer’s dream” as an essential part of the team that helped mobile phone company Nokia climb to #1 global market share. Since then, Michelle has supported wireless retailers nationwide in publishing, event production, brand management and now, for the past three years has rallied the entire wireless repair community together to build the Wireless Repair EXPO from the ground up. eTech Parts had an opportunity to chat with Michelle for an exclusive interview about how her former role as Marketing Director at Nokia sparked her passion for helping entrepreneurs, her thoughts on the future of wireless repair, and what you can expect from the 3rd annual Wireless Repair EXPO 2016 at CTIA Super Mobility 2016.

Like with any repair, soldering requires the right tools. It is tempting to purchase the most inexpensive tool for the job. Always remember that saving money is not worth sacrificing your time and safety. Quality equipment is often more energy efficient, safer for you or your technician, and less likely to accidentally damage the device you are repairing. Protection by a warranty is an additional benefit when you purchase quality equipment. Hakko is a product that wireless repair technicians have trusted for years for these reasons. Continue reading
