Televisions no longer accepted for repair
Due to the numerous difficulties that are often encountered Ecotech Services no longer offers to repair televisions, with the exception of those that have a CRT display.
We now accept welding and plasma cutting equipment for repair. We have two technicians who are experienced with repairing welding and related equipment.
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.
