MAILING YOUR DEVICE IN FOR REPAIR
What should I do with my device before shipping it to you?
Please back up all of your data prior to shipping your device. Although majority of the repairs do not have any effect on the information stored on your device, sometimes a restore of your device may be required. We will not be held responsible for any data lost during a repair. Also, it is important that your device does not have a password restriction on it. This limits our ability to evaluate your device prior to and post installation. We only access your device to test its basic functions and do not go through your private information.
iRepair Solutions provides mail-in repair service to customers in all 50 states. If you purchased a repair service for your device, then the next step is to ship it to our repair facility. It is up to you to decide which shipping carrier to use but we ask that you have a tracking number so that we know exactly where your device is at all times. Ship your device to our repair facility at the following address:
11974 Lebanon Rd. Suite 336

*Please write your order number on your box so that we can identify your repair order and process it accordingly.
We offer three return shipping options for ordered repair services and parts: USPS First Class (2-5 business days), USPS Priority (2-3 business days), and USPS Express (overnight). The USPS First Class shipping option comes standard with all repair services and parts at no additional cost to you. It is absolutely FREE.

Please refer to the packaging instructions when shipping your Smartphone, Tablet or iPod to our repair facility. This will ensure that your device is delivered safely and in a timely manner.
For the iPhone and iPod models, the box size can be about the same. We recommend a box with the following dimensions: 8″L X 5″W X 3″H. These dimensions ensure that the box has enough padding on all side. USPS Priority Small Flat Rate Box is a perfect shipping box for these devices.
For the iPads, the box size needs to be significantly larger. We recommend a box with the following dimensions: 10″L X 8″W X 3″H. These dimensions should secure the Tablet and keep it safe during transit. A medium size USPS Priority Flat Rate Box is also a good choice for this type of shipment.
Please do NOT use envelopes when shipping your device to our repair facility. These envelopes do not provide enough cushion to secure your device or keep it from incurring further damage.
Please do NOT use newspaper or packaging “peanuts” to secure your gadgets in the box. These packaging materials will not be enough to secure your device properly. Please use packaging foam or ideally bubble wrap, which is also available at the Post Office.
Tracking the Package
Please make sure that your shipment comes with a tracking number. This ensures that we know where the package is at all times and gives us a better idea on when to expect it in for a repair. If you have any issues tracking your package, please contact us and we will be glad to help.
I’m not sure what is wrong with my device. What should I do?
All of our devices are evaluated prior to being repaired. If you are not sure what is wrong with your device, you may select our $0.99 Diagnostics Service. Once we find the problem with your device we will contact you immediately for approval to proceed with the repair. It is extremely important that you leave a way for us to contact you during the day so that we can resolve this as soon as possible. You are in no way obligated to proceed with the repair after the diagnostics service.

Unfortunately, we have seen too many replacement parts that do not meet our high-quality standards. Because of this we only use our parts, which have been tested prior to installation.
Do you use new, used, or refurbished parts for your repairs?
We only use new replacement parts on all of our repairs.
