Get Your Pixel Phone Fixed With Google’s Own Mail-In ‘Repair Center’ – Currently Available In US

Since the launch of the first generation of Pixel smartphones, we’ve been relying on non-official channels to get our device fixed. Be it a minor audio problem or the major accidental problem we’d have to go to the widely-known uBreakiFix or Puls (a phone repair startup).

But Google has finally heard our voices, and finally opened an in-house mail-in repair service, dubbed ‘Repair Center,’ and has just been added to the Google Store. So, if you want your device to be fixed through the official channel, now you can. But the service is only available in the US as of now.

The service seems hassle free, the landing page for the Repair Center will welcome you with quick links to Google support pages showing how to prevent or potentially fix whichever problem you’re having at home.

But if you’ve accidentally dropped your phone on some hard surface and the screen of your device has been cracked or your device has been drowned, then you have to a bit more than just a few clicks.

Starting with IMEI number, you have to enter your device’s IMEI number and you’ll be presented with a list of options. If your device is still in warranty and has some issue which warranty covers, the site claims to fixed the device for free.

But if you have a problem which isn’t covered under warrant – like a cracked screen and water damage unit – you will be presented an estimate for the repair. The site listed that for a Pixel 2XL, a cracked screen will cost $239, and water damage will set you back at $413.

These prices are exclusive of any taxes, albeit Google says that these prices will cover shipping and even offers to send some prepaid packaging to you at no charge.

The duration of the repair is 7-10 business days. The launch of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL is imminent and we do believe Google will give us a detailed announcement about this new Repair Center.
