CHICAGO, March 21, 2013 – This column explores the unconventional stories that occur when people spill various liquids onto or into their MacBooks and how the Mac Repair Experts at LiquidSpill.com save them the trouble and expense of buying a brand new machine. 

Our story today comes from a customer who was entertaining some guests one night at his apartment. As the night went on, he began to have a little too much fun at his own party, ultimately emptying his cocktail onto the keyboard of his MacBook laptop computer. Within a matter of just a few minutes, the computer was dead. Deceased. Terminated. Kaput. DOA. 

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the delicate electronic internal organs of Macs, or any other laptops for that matter, have a distinct aversion to close encounters with liquids of any kind. At this point in the party, most people would be prepared to accept the fact that they had just drowned their $1200 Mac computer in an unwanted shower of booze, at which point they’d continue to drink the remainder of that booze to forget the personal and economic catastrophe they’d just caused.  

But that wasn’t an option for this customer. He needed a computer quickly and did not have the money to purchase another Mac. He was living on a tight budget, so he couldn’t even consider price quotes that came in at over $700 in repair. He was out of options, until he discovered LiquidSpill.com while searching for solutions on the Internet.   

LiquidSpill.com is a Mac repair service that specializes in liquid spills. The company provides free FedEx shipping, allowing the customer to send his or her MacBook to their expert Mac specialists where they repair it and send it right back. Their customer service is top of line, which means LiquidSpill was available to help this customer throughout the entire repair process. 

LiquidSpill covered all the FedEx shipping costs and consistently sent email updates to this customer throughout the entire repair process. This customer was quoted at a price of $480.00, and he paid exactly that. There were no hidden fees or service charges, which the customer greatly appreciated.  

Bottom line: this customer was able to save the cost of a brand new MacBook—an estimated value of over $1000 even for a refurb—by choosing LiquidSpill for his Mac repair service. The entire LiquidSpill repair process only took 9 days end to end, and none of the data on his computer was lost.
