It is possible to receive repairs on various types of tablets through specialty repair businesses such as Batteries Plus Bulbs and uBreakiFix and through the repair and maintenance services of retailers such as Best Buy. Some manufacturers, such as Apple, also provide repair services exclusively for their own devices.
Batteries Plus Bulbs offers repairs and diagnostics services at its retail locations, as well as an online price calculator on its website, BatteriesPlus.com. From its Repairs page, choose the Tablets and eReaders section, and select the brand and model of your tablet. This displays the general pricing for its various services, including repair packages and examination according to damage type, such as cracks or exposure to water. Similarly, uBreakiFix services a wide selection of tablets at its physical stores and allows you to request a quote for full parts and labor costs on any repair. It also enables you to schedule a repair appointment at its stores through the site, uBreakiFix.com.
Best Buy features a service repair and help program, known as the Geek Squad, that is able to perform repairs on various types of tablets you purchase from the retailer. It also offers special service protection plans, which include repairs on devices for a set period of time. Apple also offers protection plans, which reduce or eliminate the cost of repairs, during the coverage period. It is possible to take an iPad tablet into an Apple Store for repairs or ship it to a repair location.
