Apple Macbook Repair Tiers Explained
Mac repairs are categorized into three different tiers. If the MacBook chassis is scratched or destroyed, the only way to go about it is that our specialists will have to replace it with a new chassis. If there is a coffee spill on the logic board, the logic board MUST be treated with the utmost urgency to prevent further corrosion to the components on the Macbook logic board. The worst-case scenario will be just replacing the logic board.
If over three components are needed to be fixed in Tier 1, we could upgrade the repair to the higher tier level. For instance, if your Mac needs to replace three different components in Tier one, you’ll be upgraded to Tier two pricing – hope that makes sense.
- Tier 1: The first Tier is usually minor components. For instance, cables, reseating, feet or screws. It can be structural parts like brackets.
- Tier 2: This encompasses assemblies and minor boards. This takes account of replacement of inverter assembly, power supply replacement, or interconnects board. Also, it may include enclosure components or an LCD polarizer.
- Tier 3: Any replacement to a Hard Drive falls under the category of tier 3. More info here.
- Tier 4: This is for big and detrimental problems. This takes account of the major logic board or a replacement of the screen.
