Established in 2002, Repair World Direct has evolved into a strong trustworthy repair centre for electronics. With modern ‘tech’ lifestyles we have, plus the cost to buy and replace the devices we all love so much we quickly realised our services provided a solution to a problem, at the same time saving our customers time and money. With a one stop repair shop for most current electronic devices, once you find us, no need to look elsewhere.
The 'world direct' brand started out as an idea in 1 guys garage, taking the skills, evolving internet and hard work to build what you see today.
We started repairing games consoles in 2002, set up our first on-line store in 2004, moved to business premises in 2007 and opened our first shop in 2010.
We now operate entirely from dedicated repair centre shop premises in Crewe, Cheshire. Employ UK trained staff & complete around 1000 repairs every month from our custom built device specific workshops.
