We are working under Alert Level 1 conditions. All our services are running normally but please follow the procedures we have in place to protect our staff and the community.
For official information visit the Government COVID-19 website.
We have increased our minimum (inspection) fees for repairs and increased some of our television recycling prices.
See our price list for further information.
We try and keep or prices as low as possible but we must charge enough in order to supply a professional service and to maintain a high degree of environmental protection.
Our labour prices are still low compared to others in the industry.
DO NOT DUMP ITEMS
We have had a number of cases where items for recycling are dumped at our premises or left in the letterbox.
PLEASE TALK TO STAFF BEFORE LEAVING ANY ITEMS WITH US.
There is usually a $5 handling fee. Many items have low scrap value and also require processing for achieving a good environmental outcome.
Our online shop is now operating. It is still under development so please let us know if you experience any problems.
Check out our Trade Me account for deals that save you money and save our environment.
Contact us if you need any cables, common, obscure, or vintage parts, microwave oven assemblies, power tool parts, or electronic components. We may be able to help you.
Bulk lots of antistatic bags, motherboard boxes, and HDD storage receptacles.
