The guy down the street will repair my phone for cheaper, will you match their price?
Pricing matching in mobile repair is very difficult as the quality of parts differ largely between repair stores and their suppliers.  Some repair stores source the cheapest parts they can find while others look for quality first.
At Wi West quality parts and repairs are our top priority.  As such we use only the best quality parts available and are always searching for great deals that we can pass on to our customers.  Through our supply chain we have been able to source high quality OEM screens as well as high quality aftermarket screens to allow us to maintain our commitment to quality while offering competitive pricing.

Our commitment to our customers is to always offer the best quality for the best price we can!

What is the return/warranty policy on DIY purchased parts?
Due to the fact that many mobile device replacement parts are easily damaged if not installed correctly, we can not return or offer any warranty on replacement screen.  Most other repair parts come with a 2 week replacement warranty. Special orders are non refundable.
* some exceptions apply, ask in store for details.
What is your warranty on repairs?

Most repairs include a limited 6 MONTH warranty on replacement parts and labour due to manufacture defects.
Battery replacements come with a 30 DAY warranty.

Warranty does NOT cover parts that were not repaired or replaced, nor problems that were not worked on nor disclosed as per the terms of service at the time of repair.

Any attempt to repair the device yourself or by anyone other than Wi West will void all warranties.

Existing damage to the phone will be taken into account with the replacement. We also reserve the right to replace the device with equivalent cash value instead of replacing it. Whenever possible and to the extent we are able, we will retrieve and backup any data requested by the customer from the said damaged device and provide it to the customer on a medium of their providing. If we do replace the device under the conditions stated above, any repairs requests will also be payable or deducted from the replacement value.
