Data Recovery Near Me – Not So Fast!

by Jan 29, 2019

Laboratory MicroscopeWe have helped customers in almost every state in the USA*, but we still have potential customers that base their final decision on location alone. The truth is, you could be costing yourself hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, when the only reason you choose a data recovery company is the location.

We understand that some people in need of recovery services might have a local data recovery lab that provides reasonable rates and fast and friendly service, but most people will not be in close proximity to a company that meets these criteria. There are a limited number of data recovery professionals, and even less that combine fast and friendly service with flat-rates and a high success rate. If you have to ship your device anyway, is it reasonable to limit yourself to companies in your own state?

WD20EARX - Head SwapFor less than $10, you can ship most devices via USPS Priority Mail, which includes tracking information. If you have an urgent need for data recovery, you can use an overnight service from Fedex, UPS, or – in some locations – USPS Priority Mail Express. But how will that help if you send it to a company that takes 2-3 weeks just to diagnose your recovery case?

Here are 10 questions you might want to ask a data recovery company that could be more important than location:

  1. How long is the average diagnostic time?
  2. How long after the recovery cost is approved before the work starts?
  3. Does the company stock parts for the most popular models?
  4. Is the cost of recovery flat-rate or open-ended?
  5. Do they have a “no data, no charge” policy including parts?
  6. Is there a non-refundable parts charge?
  7. Is return media included? If not, how much extra is charged?
  8. Do they have a good reputation?
  9. Can you speak to a recovery engineer or only a sales person?
  10. How much do you charge?
