Owner "Martin Smith" set up the RemoteFixer system online back in 2002 as part of a network of repair sites aimed at offering repair advice and services to the public. This came about through the closure of the local repair depot that was the main employment for over 10 years prior. This closure was due to the ever increasing price of repairs whilst the price of replacement equipment was lowering making repairs to most household electronic devices impracticle (such as TV's, DVD players etc)
Since our online launch in 2002 we have serviced thousands of remotes and have built quite a decent reputation online for our great quality of service but one thing that was lacking over the last few years was a more modern web structure that appealed to a wider audience. The site you see before you is the latest incarnation of the RemoteFixer system, you could say Remote Fixer V3 and was relaunched in July 2014
We aim to continue our high standard of repair work that has preceeded this sites relaunch as we expand to servicing a wider range of remote equipment as well as offering services no longer limited to just within the U.K.
Over the years we have accumulated many spares (both common and rare) for many different makes and types of remotes. This allows us to carry out repair work swiftly and efficiently for the majority of Remotes. We also have ammased a number of quality component suplliers worldwide for when we come across a job that requires parts that we dont have to hand.
The average turnaround for repairs is 1 to 5 working days after arrival (excluding weekends and postage times), this timescale can change during busy times i.e. when the cold weather starts we can get inundated with people realising their remotes are falty all at the same time which can add extra time to the average timescale
