In Depth: Mobile Klinik

Posted in Products with tags on September 8, 2022 by itnerd

Inflation is up, and wages are stagnant. That means that every dollar that you spend has to go further. Recent reports have found that 85 per cent of Canadians are concerned that their income won’t be able to keep up with inflation.

That doubly true when it comes to tech. For example, buying a new phone may no longer be an option for you and a used phone could be the way to go. But buying a phone from Craigslist may be a dodgy proposition as you don’t know if you are getting a phone that is in good shape and that will last.

That’s where Mobile Klinik comes in. This Canadian retailer offers the widest range of high-quality used devices from trusted brands – providing customers with a budget-friendly way to upgrade and trade-in mobile devices, as well as the ability to earn money on old devices. These options are not only friendlier on the environment, but are also a little lighter on the wallet.

One thing that I like about Mobile Klinik is that unlike a lot of shops that fix phones, their stores are bright and very welcoming. In fact they’ve won an award for their retail design.

Mobile Klinik also offers multiple cost-effective, sustainable mobility solutions that are convenient and affordable, including:

  • The chance to get $100 off the price of a used or repaired device when activated in-store. All used devices come risk-free with a 1-year warranty.
  • A Sustainability Credit, offering customers the chance to save $5 per month on their phone bill when they activate a used or repaired device in-store.
  • The ability to repair, sell or trade-in old devices at any of its 125+ stores coast-to-coast to extend their lifecycle and prevent them from ending up in landfills.

Thus if I were a parent who needed a new phone for my child, I would be looking at Mobile Klinik as an option as that would be a good cost containment option. Speaking of back to school, Canadians can take advantage of these Mobile Klinik Back to School promotions:

  1. A wide selection of used iPhones starting at $99, while quantities last.
  2. A free phone case and screen protector, plus get two years of free unlimited screen repairs when you buy and activate a used device.
  3. Free Skullcandy earbuds with the purchase of select devices.

Thus if you are looking for a phone upgrade, or you need your phone fixed, take a look at Mobile Klinik as I have sent a few of my clients to them, and they have been pleased with the results. Which says to me that you’ll be as well.

Mobile Klinik Opens 100th Store

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 25, 2021 by itnerd

Today Mobile Klinik, Canada’s expert leading chain on device performance and professional smartphone and tablet repair offering high-quality, certified pre-owned mobile devices, opened its 100th store location at the Pickering Town Centre in Pickering, Ontario. To celebrate this milestone, across Canada this holiday season, customers who purchase a certified pre-owned phone and activate select mobility plans in-store can save up to $250. Until the end of 2021 the Pickering Town Centre location is providing 20 per cent off most repairs, accessories and certified pre-owned mobile devices.

The demand for trusted repair outlets and locations to purchase high-quality certified pre-owned devices is growing. A recent Angus Reid Institute survey conducted by Mobile Klinik found 41 per cent of Canadians would consider purchasing a pre-owned phone, citing cost and environmental benefits as leading motivators. Further, the majority of Canadians consider their mobile phone as their most expensive personal item and are willing to consider repairing rather than replacing their device, with nearly half of those respondents having repaired their device before.

Mobile Klinik offers Canadians a trusted location to buy, sell, repair and connect their mobile devices:

  • Buy: Customers can choose from Canada’s widest variety of premium certified pre-owned devices, backed by an industry-leading one-year warranty
  • Sell: Mobile Klinik will buy most used device makes and models for top dollar, and to protect customer privacy will safely transfer the seller’s data to a new device or USB before properly wiping the old one
  • Repair: All repairs are performed by certified, expert technicians, with most completed in about an hour. Common issues include cracked screens, broken cameras, software updates, and battery replacements with premium-quality-parts and state-of-the-art diagnostics
  • Connect: Mobile Klinik also offers a full range of rate plans from leading Canadian wireless carriers, with special sustainability discounts to reward customers who extend the life of their devices by repairing their device or replacing it with a certified pre-owned device, rather than buying expensive new devices

Providing customers with further convenience, earlier this year Mobile Klinik launched its Onsite Repair Units, the first van service of its kind offering consumers and businesses nationwide the convenience of professional smartphone and tablet repair at the location of their choice. Now residents and businesses in more than 100 communities nationwide can conveniently access Mobile Klinik’s Onsite Repair Unit service.

Founded in 2015, Mobile Klinik has rapidly grown into Canada’s leader in professional smartphone and tablet repair, refurbishment and resale with 100 retail locations and 500 team members across Canada. For more information visit mobileklinik.ca.

 Mobile Klinik Offers A Solid Option For Holiday Gift Giving

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 8, 2021 by itnerd

Many Canadians are already thinking about holiday shopping – and tech is once again going to be a favourite. Holiday spending is expected to rise 31 per cent this year compared to 2020, so with peak tech-buying timeframes on the horizon including Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Canadians will once again be looking for tech deals and opportunities to upgrade. 

But, with more and more Canadians looking to reduce their environmental footprint, make more sustainable purchases, and also save money, there’s an opportunity for Canadians to revisit their approach to holiday tech shopping with Mobile Klinik who are Canada’s leading and most trusted provider of smartphone and tablet repair and refurbishment with 100 stores coast-to-coast. As it turns out, 41% of Canadians say they would consider purchasing a pre-owned phone, citing cost and environmental benefits as leading motivators. Despite this, only 12% of Canadians have actually ever purchased a used device.

This holiday season, spread a little cheer – whether for yourself or a loved one – with certified pre-owned devices that are smarter for the planet, kinder on bank accounts, and operate like new. Here are three reasons why Canadians should consider a certified pre-owned device this season:

  • The features you need, the price you want: Mobile Klinik carries the latest in mobile device offerings, meaning customers don’t have to sacrifice quality for cost. Purchasing a device through Mobile Klinik can save customers hundreds of dollars on what they might spend on a new device.
  • Like-new and under warranty: Sanitized and professionally refurbished, Mobile Klinik’s certified pre-owned devices go through a 34-point inspection by a trained technician and are backed by a 1-year warranty.
  • Available without the wait: While the technology industry grapples with chip shortages, leading to a lack of supply for consumers, Mobile Klinik fills this gap by still offering a “new” device in the form of certified pre-owned device options. There is no shortage of devices like the iPhone 7,8,and XR for shoppers to snatch up this holiday season.
