For many of our customers, parting with their treasured camera equipment can be like losing an arm. As a result, we have worked hard to create a service that keeps the customer involved throughout every stage of the repair. You'll be kept informed from the first enquiry until it's back in your hands. Our collection and delivery service ensures that your device receives the best possible care.
We work directly with manufacturers for premium brands, including JVC, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Canon.
Repairing the latest technology requires the latest tools and equipment. 1st Aid Repairs has invested in the latest technology to ensure that we provide a quality repair service:
Preheating, air-flowing solder systems give us the ability to replace the smallest components. Allowing us to replace parts like individual HDMI and USB sockets directly, without the high cost of replacing a whole circuit board.
We have a clean room facility, combined with ionising, anti-static air guns which allows us to strip and clean lenses to the highest degree possible. We can also replace IR filters on CCD's and CMOS sensors to the manufacturers standards.
Our dedicated calibration tools allow us to confirm your camera or screen is working properly. Allowing us to fix zoom and exposure issues that are normally difficult to replicate.
We PAT test all mains powered equipment before it is returned to you.
Our highly trained, specialist technicians are able to make repairs down to a component level. This means we can reduce the number of expensive parts required. Keeping your equipment working for longer.
While we do our best to reduce, reuse and recycle, sometimes an item reaches the end of its useful life. In these cases we offer a WEEE regulated recycling program, and we only recycle through responsible, U.K. companies.
Your data and personal details are sensitive. We take steps to store and dispose of both your personal data and equipment responsibly.
We established 1st Aid repairs in 2000 and have a wealth of experience working alongside manufacturers, insurance companies, and some of the largest name brand stores around, as well as individual clients and professional film crews.
In this ever changing economy, we are keen to continue providing the best and most efficient service we can. We invest in our staff and business so that we have the latest tools and knowledge. By repairing equipment, we invest in a more sustainable environment for the next generation.
