Repair instead of throwing away

Handeltheke follows the principles of "Do it yourself" and "Repair instead of throwing away". We enable you to have your electronic devices repaired at a fraction of the cost that would be incurred at a repair shop - on average only 2-6 times as much. This not only helps to conserve your wallet, but also contributes to environmental protection.

Contrary to the previous attitude that repairing was something embarrassing, it is now in trend to protect the environment and our planet. Avoid wastefulness and instead use common sense: instead of throwing something away, you can try to repair it to make it functional again. Through repair and recycling, resources can be conserved and money can be saved.

In today's world, various devices and gadgets are essential for everyday life. We strive to ensure that these devices function for as long as possible. Unfortunately, unforeseen problems do occur and sometimes your devices break down.

The question arises: What to do? Should you repair, recycle, or do something else?

The answer to this question is not always clear-cut, as it depends on various factors such as the model of the device and its condition.

Situation 1:

If your TV can no longer be repaired due to a faulty screen, don't throw it away immediately. There are still parts in it that could be useful to other people who have a similar model but different issues.

By donating or selling these parts, you can not only help others but also protect the environment by avoiding unnecessary electronic waste. Ultimately, you could also earn a little money for yourself by selling these spare parts.

Overall, it's a win-win situation for everyone involved.

Situation 2:

If a simple part, such as the speaker, breaks in a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, it is often much more cost-effective to have it repaired rather than buying a new device. At Handeltheke, we can provide you with a cost estimate for repairing your device, including the cost of the replacement part and the technician's labor time.

Conclusion: By repairing your device, you not only save money but also contribute to environmental protection by avoiding unnecessary electronic waste.

Situation 3:

Assuming that your monitor has broken down due to a short circuit and you are now considering disposing of it. However, in 95% of cases, there may still be valuable parts in it that could be useful for other people. That's why you shouldn't throw away accessories like cables, chargers, power supplies, or remote controls - because all of that could still be needed by others. We're here to help you with that.

These parts may be needed in a day or even two years, but they will still be useful!

In summary, you not only saved money but also did something good for the environment and helped others.

Even if you think your device is obsolete and no one else will need it, you are wrong! There are people who even repair 30 year old devices!

In reality, many devices end up as landfills, but we must protect our planet and the resources on it. We therefore recommend that you either have your device repaired or send it to us for dismantling.

We always have a solution - the best for the environment and your wallet.
