Submit a Job
Please read over this critical information summary. Here you’ll find everything you need to know. Frequently asked Questions: HOW LONG DOES THIS WHOLE PROCESS TAKE? Answer: It is impossible to give an exact timeframe before inspecting each device physically as every case has its own unique challenges. In saying that, all devices are typically assessed within 3 business days of us receiving the device. After 3 business days we will send you a device condition report with the details of what is required to recover your data. The report will include a quote and estimated timeframe to recover your data. HOW DOES MAIL IN DATA RECOVERY WORK? Fill out and submit our “submit a job” form and we will review your case. If we are able to accept the case we will confirm and ask you to post your device secured in safe packaging. When posting in a device you must include a copy of the “submit a job” form or a letter that includes your full name, contact number and email, address and an explanation of your device condition and problem and required files that need to be recovered. Due to the device having a rechargeable battery, you must send your device in rigid packaging. Please put the device secured in bubble wrap within a box – a satchel is not permitted by Australia post and terms of service. HOW DOES PAYMENT FOR DATA RECOVERY WORK? After the assessment we will send you a detailed report of your device condition along with the works requirements to recover your data. The detailed report will include a quote for the works required. If you wish to continue with the recovery of your data an upfront payment is required. Once payment is received in full we will start your data recovery and once your data is recovered it will be sent to the address that you have nominated on the job form. DIAGNOSIS, QUOTES AND INSPECTION TERMS! We provide free of charge quote and free inspection. Once the device is received by Data Recovery Centre, the device will be inspected and diagnosed. You will then receive a quote based on the assessment. If you do not wish to proceed with the data recovery after a quote is provided, there will be no fees for the inspection, however, return postage fees will be applicable. Upon payment of the return postage fee will post your device back to you ASAP. Estimates provided on our website or via phone call, text, email or socials, are not quotes and are estimates only. Quotes will only be provided once we have inspected the device physically on our end in person. Disclaimer - We may need to order parts in if we do not have them on hand or our stockist may become completely out of stock . Data Recovery Centre will inform you of any roadblocks / issues that arise and if we cannot within reason, achieve and or meet expectations.   Important Terms and Conditions of Service: By submitting your device to us you shall be taken as agree to the following terms and conditions: • I acknowledge that the data recovery process will void my warranty and will not hold Data Recovery Centre liable for any reason due to warranty or hardware support being void/lost or damage of any kind to the screen or cosmetic damage of any kind to the phone.
