Working with authorized Mac service providers is important. If you are going to the guy down the street instead, here are some reasons to make the switch.
If you are still under warranty or Apple Care, only an authorized service provider can work on your Mac. Many repairs are covered under warranty, so by taking your Mac to someone else you might be throwing money straight into the garbage. Even for work that is not covered under warranty, using an unlicensed provider voids your warranty, so you will be unable to obtain warranty repairs further down the line.
Even once your Mac leaves the warranty period, you should continue seeing your Apple service provider. Disassembling an Apple product is drastically different from a Windows PC, and most techs lack the training to take apart your Mac without causing serious damage to the components. No one wants to get the call that their repair will be extended because a technician made a mistake.
Once it is time to put your much-loved Mac to rest and upgrade to a newer model, Apple trained sales staff will be able to help you make the right decision for your needs. In addition, they can help you pick out the accessories, training and extended service contract that will allow you to make the most of your Mac. MacSolutions Plus even offers a trade-in program to help offset the cost of your upgrade.
