MacUpgrades is based a couple of miles south of Cambridge, and has provided an Apple Macintosh repair
and upgrade service to the surrounding area and across the country since 2001. See our Mac Repair FAQ.
For upgrades, or repairs where the fault is known, we provide many fixed cost
services. Pricing for which can be found on the pages specific to each Mac
via the links on the left-hand side of this website. If you need your Mac repaired
but do not know the cause of the fault, we can do an evaluation of the machine
+ vat and come back with a quote for a guaranteed fix. £39 + vat is our
hourly rate for engineer's time, and any extra time remaining from the evaluation
will be counted towards any labour required to fix the Mac. Evaluations generally
take around 1 or 2 working days, and the same to fix machines - although it
can take longer if we need to order in parts.
If you want to discuss your issue, please call us on 01223 833 412. If you
are not local you can ship the machine to us, or have our courier collect it.
If you are in the Cambridge area then you can bring the Macintosh into our
location. No need to make an appointment, we are open Monday - Friday, 9am
- 5pm (excluding public holidays) and you can drop your Mac into us during
