East London’s electronic repair businesses

When an electrical or electronic device breaks, it is difficult to find out how to go about repairing it. Community repair events, such as Restart Parties, can be a great option, but if you depend on a device, you might need to opt for a reliable and timely solution near where you live. When you don’t have a personal recommendation, this is far from easy.

In autumn of 2016, The Restart Project researched businesses based in Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge and Havering, and came up with initial criteria to help people find reliable businesses:

– Having a local business address
– Providing warranty on the repairs they perform
– Having 80% positive online reviews

Restart identified 22 local repair businesses fitting these criteria. And we’ve helpfully listed them below via borough.

Due to the pilot nature of this project, the list might not be comprehensive. However, the criteria behind it are a useful first step to help residents assess the reliability of a repair business.

To learn more about the project and provide feedback, visit The Restart Project’s website.
