As part of our Sustainability Strategy, Intersport Elverys wants to make sure you always have access to professional repair services in Ireland for your products.
General wear and tear is extremely hard to avoid so there are situations where shoes, boots, clothes or home gym equipment, for example, may need some work.
If they are out of warranty or past their return date, then the last thing we want you to do is throw it out and unnecessarily to landfill.
In this blog we are going to share with you some of our favourite repair business’ and services for all your product repair needs.
Firstly, if you haven’t heard of iFixit, the you really need to. They have created an amazing and free communal manual repair guide for nearly everything you can imagine. You should never take broken for an answer!
