Samsung South Africa has launched the country’s first door-to-door smartphone repair service for customers who may not have time to visit a customer care centre.
In a statement on Wednesday (2 June), Samsung said the new service offers customers the option of having their smartphone picked up from their homes or businesses, repaired and returned.
How Samsung ‘door-to-door’ repair service works
Samsung’s door-to-door smartphone repair service applies to repairs within a 40km radius of a customer care centre. The process is as follows:
- Customers need to fill an application form on the service’s webpage here. Samsung will then arrange a collection time with you.
- The cost of both the pick-up and return of your smartphone is R330.
- Once a Samsung representative picks up the device, you will be able to track the repair progress.
- You will be notified when the repair is completed.
- A delivery time will be arranged with you.
- Due to COVID-19 regulations, the product will be sanitised and packaged before the customer.
Customers with the following devices will be able to apply for the service:
- Samsung Galaxy Z (all models)
- Samsung Galaxy S (all models)
- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G
- Samsung Galaxy Note (all models)
- Samsung Galaxy A (all models)
- Samsung Galaxy J (all models)
- Samsung Tablets: Galaxy Tab S (all models), Galaxy Tab A (all models), Galaxy Tab Active (all models)
