As a laptop user, it is very important to have a repair service plan in place before you start working on the machine. Whether you are a corporate user or an individual, whether the laptop is being used for business purposes or home-use, getting the right repair service plan is crucial, as you can save a lot of time, effort and money by choosing the correct one for your needs. You also need a trustworthy service that will ensure that your confidential data is protected, that you don't lose your work and that you will get your laptop back in good working condition with the assurance of future help if required.

Depending on the type of customer you are, your individual needs or the company's needs, the kind of support you need, etc, you can choose the right type of Repair-Service Plan.

A few examples of such plans are:

Individual User Plans: These are essentially for non-tech-savvy users who may require quick fixes for their home laptops. These plans include regular periodic check-ups, hardware and software assessments, removing spyware, viruses and malware from your system, checking your peripherals, power-interfaces and cleaning up the drivers. It also includes removing unwanted/unusable/obsolete data and programs from your laptop so that you get increased memory space and a more streamlined functioning. The plans may be yearly or more long-term, with terms and conditions about regular visits, additional services, cost of parts/repairs etc. and it is always good to go through the contract thoroughly before you sign up so that there are no disputes later on.

Small-Business User Plans: These are meant for clusters of laptops being used in a home-office or small shop, retail business or design studio. Here too, there is customization of needs and services and you get a range of basic services plus guaranteed turnaround time, stand-by machines, 24x7 helpline etc.

Large maintenance/service contracts: Large corporations with big volumes are serviced by bigger repair-service providers and usually have dedicated personnel assigned to each project.

Fixed-usage plans: These plans provide a certain number of free services plus guaranteed paid services on a per-incident basis. Costs are higher in these plans for repairs and unless you have a good relationship with the service provider, you cannot be sure of immediate resolution.

It all depends on the type of requirement you have and most service providers are flexible about changing your plan if you expand your business or have to downgrade your usage.
