Budget is always a concern when you’re looking to repair a device, buy why put your device at risk? Computers and phones have become huge parts of our everyday lives, so repairing them when they break is even more important. That should be enough of a reason to want quality certified parts, but the low price point on third party parts often seems like an appealing option. It’s not.
Third party parts void your manufacturer’s warranty, and our technicians here at MacMan may have to decline service if you have third party parts installed. This isn’t an intellectual property issue; it’s a safety issue. Third party parts can cause issues with other certified parts due to poor manufacturing standards or installation, and certified parts go through layers of checks and quality assurance that third party parts just don’t. This is especially true for third party batteries, which may cause damage to the phone and injury to the user. At MacMan, we always use certified manufacturer parts in all of our service repairs because your safety always comes before budget.
