What to Expect

  • FREE INITIAL ASSESSMENT AT CHECK-IN

    We see hundreds of consoles every month so what may seem like a strange error to you, we've likely seen numerous times before. We will assess your NES and give you the most likely cause of the symptoms you are experiencing.  With that comes a no obligation quote of what your final repair bill should look like.

  • FLAT RATE DIAGNOSTICS

    We charge a non-refundable $40 diagnostic fee for all NES repairs upon check-in.  This fee covers the cost of shop materials/replacement parts/time that goes into every repair attempt.  If your NES is deemed unrepairable, this deposit is all you pay.  If successful, the diagnostic fee is applied towards your final bill.  Don't worry mail-ins, you are exempt from this fee as we know you've already had to invest in freight costs to get your console to us!

  • EXPERT REPAIRS AND COMS

    Our team of highly trained staff will get to work on your NES ASAP!  Should we discover anything that deviates from your original quote, we will call you BEFORE we proceed with the repair.  We want you to be in control of your repair.  If you decide to back out at that point, the only cost will be the diagnostic fee.

  • TEST, TEST AND TEST AGAIN

    Being gamers ourselves, we know how frustating it is to have your gaming sesh cut short.  After your repair is complete, we will put your NES through a rigorous testing regiment to confirm that the problem has been resolved.  If a problem manages to sneak through our testing, don't worry, our 3 month warranty has got you covered!
