Company Description
JCD Repair Overview Jet City Device Repair is a full-service cell phone repair shop specializing in cracked screen repairs for the iPhone, Droids, HTC, Samsung, and many more smart phones. They offer in-person repairs out of their Seattle office as well as mail-in repair services for people elsewhere in the United States.

They stock most of the components necessary for the repairs they offer so in-person repairs can be completed while a customer waits and mail-in repairs are almost always finished and mailed back out within 24 hours.

Prices vary depending on the device and the amount of damage, but all repairs are significantly less than purchasing a brand new phone at full-price (as examples, the iPhone glass only repair is $65 and the Droid screen repair is $75).

All of their repairs include the parts, labor, and a 90 day warranty.

Feel free to contact them through their website ( http://www.jcdrepair.com ) or by telephone: 800-272-0897.

JCD Repair History In 2007, Matt McCormick decided to leave his job as a programmer for Microsoft and to start his own company. Initially, he helped small businesses build and maintain their websites. To better understand his customers' needs, Matt decided to create his own e-commerce website. But doing what?

Shortly after starting out on his own, Matt broke the screen on his T-Mobile Dash. Like most people, he went to the dealership and was told he had to buy a new phone. So he did, and then a week later he stepped on that phone and broke the screen again.

This time Matt took the effort to figure out how to repair his own phone. First came the hours of online research to find a replacement screen and all the right tools. Then, after a week waiting for the supplies to arrive, an hour was spent getting the phone torn apart and another hour putting it back together. With a working phone in hand, the idea for Jet City Device Repair was born.

Armed with this new idea, the next task was to build a website. Initially the site offered one service: The repair of a broken T-Mobile Dash screen. After several months repairing a few phones a week, another phone was added: The AT&T Tilt. At the same time, Matt expanded his marketing efforts and soon 20+ phones a week were arriving.

Then, in December of 2008, he began offering the iPhone cracked screen repair service. The business exploded. It was at this time that Matt had to decide whether to continue his web development company or pursue the cell phone repair business full-time - it was no longer possible to do both.

After talking with a trusted friend, Tom Lorimor, Matt decided it was time to take Jet City Device Repair to the next level. He and Tom became business partners and began seriously upgrading the business. A new, much improved website was built, an actual retail space rented, and a full-blown marketing plan was launched. Soon they were fixing hundreds of phones a month.

Today, Jet City Device Repair has a retail location in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, has 2 employees, and, due to the doubling of their business in the past year, they have recently promoted one of their employees to a management position. And the business continues to grow.
