Should you use phone insurance to replace your broken iPhone screen?

You might think that if you are paying a monthly premium, then it stands to reason that you will get a benefit if ever you need to make a claim. This isn't necessarily so.

Even if you have a phone insurance policy which covers accidental damage, you might be much better off not using it.

Our prices for replacement screens for the iPhone start at £49. This is less than the excess you will pay to make a claim on most phone insurance policies.

Also remember, most insurance policies require you to send your phone away for two weeks. Will you happily do without it for that long? On the other hand, we can fix your phone sometimes in a matter of hours.

It is usually much faster, cheaper and more convenient to come to PC Pitstop than to make a claim on a phone insurance policy.

Does it cost a lot to call a PC Pitstop computer engineer to fix my problem?

Compared to the prices you can expect to pay if your boiler breaks down, or your Miele washing machine breaks down, our prices are tiny.

For example, if you called Miele out, you can expect to pay £117 just to arrive at your house. Then you pay £72 for the first hour. Making the trip to your house and the first hour combined £189 + VAT, or £226.80. We will come to your home or business, and we will work for an hour all-in for just £45. Less than a fifth of the price of a washing machine engineer. Our prices for additional hours are even cheaper, at just £25. So you can spoil yourself without breaking the bank.

Do I have to use Windows 8?

At PC Pitstop, we don't get paid to recommend any version of Windows. Our customers take the lead, and we believe it shouldn't be any other way.

If you like windows 8, then that's great, we will happily provide you with great computers running Windows 8. If you don't like 8, and prefer 7, we are delighted to deliver the computer that you need, running Windows 7.

You may even wish to use Linux, such as Ubuntu Linux. That's fine too. We are happy to provide you with a computer running Linux, and without having to pay for a windows license. At PC Pitstop, you are in the driving seat.

We don't push expensive warranties, antivirus packages, and productivity packages costing hundreds of pounds on computer buyers. Instead, as standard, we pre-install them with the PC Pitstop productivity pack, which includes an antivirus at no extra charge, and offer affordable repairs for when your warranty has expired.

Now that XP is at the end of it's life, we are standing by to give the help you need.
