Our friends at MacResQ have announced the addition of same-day pickup service for its nationwide PowerMacResQ repair service. The service works as follows: You order a repair, the company sends you packing materials, has your PowerMac picked up the next day, fixes it, and sends it back to you. Now the company will pick it up the same day you order if you pack the machine up yourself (with the original packing materials), saving you a full day and US$30 off the price of the pick up service. From MacResQ:
MacResQ announced today a new nationwide same-day pickup service as part of their PowerMacResQ repair program. The new same-day pickup allows PowerMac or iMac users to get their computers repaired and back in their hands faster than ever, improving on PowerMacResQis already fast, convenient and affordable service.
PowerMacResQ is the only service of its kind offering 24-hour turnaround on repairs and nationwide, overnight pickup & delivery at the useris location. The service eliminates the extended delays and headaches frequently associated with trying to get Macs repaired locally. If a local repair center is available, costs are usually high and turnaround time is unacceptable for users who rely on their Macs on a daily basis.
Rather than driving all over town and then waiting days or weeks to get your computer back, PowerMacResQ customers simply call 1-866-Mac-Repair. If you have your original computer packaging, and if you call before 2:00pm local time (in most areas of the United States), PowerMacResQ will immediately dispatch a same-day courier who will pick up your PowerMac and have it back to our repair facility the next morning. Most repairs are completed within 24 hours of receipt, and your repaired PowerMac or iMac is returned to you via overnight courier.
PowerMacResQis new same-day pickup service costs only US$99.00. This includes same-day pickup, round-trip overnight shipping, and a detailed diagnosis of your PowerMacis problem. With this new feature and our standard 24-hour turnaround time for most repairs, youill have your PowerMac back in action as fast as humanly possible!
The standard overnight PowerMacResQ service is still just US$129.00, and includes 3-way overnight shipping, the initial diagnostic service, and the PowerBox, which the customer may keep for future use.
The company has also offered TMO readers a US$10 discount on the pick up service, but you have to mention TMO (or The Mac Observer) in the comments of your order to get the discount. You can get more information on the service at the PowerMacResQ Web site.
