BULLIT Startup Provides A New Solution For Mobile Phone Repairs In The UK

Aberdeen, United Kingdom – August 22, 2017

BULLIT is a new and disruptive start up with a business model unique to the UK, offering Aberdeen iPhone repairs with free collection and drop-off. Customers use an intuitive web portal to book a phone collection at a time, date and place to suit them, while paying prices that are so competitive, they are cheaper than most prices available online or from local competitors.

The new model has been created to fill a crucial gap in services in the UK. The Apple Store has restrictive opening hours and can cost over £130 just to perform an iPhone screen replacement.

High street services are spread few and far between, and while they offer cheaper prices, they can take between three days and two weeks to repair a phone.

Finally, independent repairers tend to use off-brand parts, and tend to offer these services together with unsavoury items on a cash-only basis.

By contrast, BULLIT delivers a professional, affordable and hands-off solution. Phones are fixed in house at their central workshop, enabling the company to deliver a very fast turnaround, with all trial repairs collected, fixed and returned in under 4 hours.

What’s more, once the phone is collected from the customer, Bullit provides them with a courtesy phone which they are free to use with their own sim card or one provided by Bullit. This maximizes convenience for users while making it easy for them to update the customer on the progress of their repair.

A spokesperson for BULLIT explained, “BULLIT was created by an ex oil worker who heard people complaining about the long wait times at off-brand repair shops, and the high prices at licensed apple stores. The company has now devised a way to maximize convenience and affordability, without sacrificing on the quality of the repairs. The result is a model that is successful regionally, and has the potential to go national sooner rather than later.”

About BULLIT: BULLIT is a start-up born from the oil slump in Aberdeen. Bullit collects, repairs and returns iPhones to their customers without the need for them to leave their desk, college or even their bed. Bullit repairs iPhones more quickly and cheaply than high-street stores, and their unique business model ensures devices are collected from and delivered to customers for maximum convenience.
