Let's See What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
