How does it work?

1. Booking your item is essential. Register one item and give us as much information as possible - what the item is and what's wrong with it. Just one item per person, no large electricals such as microwaves or washing machines. Bring all power adaptors and any sundries that may be needed to conduct the repair e.g. switches.

2. You will be emailed 24 hours before with your repair timeslot. You may have to wait a short time depending on length of repairs.

3. Stay with your item and your Fixer volunteer will show you how to fix your item! There is no guarantee your item will be fixed, and if it will take a long time, we will show you how to finish it at home.

4. Your repair is free. Donations are welcome to help cover our costs, e.g. insurance and room hire. You can pay cash in donation jars on the day to say 'thank you' to your Fixer.

5. There will be tea, coffee and cakes available at a very reasonable price.
