Bring your damaged devices in to either of the Greenville or New Bern University PC Care locations and mention the ‘hurricane Florence offer’ and they’ll waive the $60 diagnostic fee at check-in, and if your device is too damaged to recover data normally, they’ll also take 10% off the forensic data recovery that would be needed at that point. In addition, if anyone needs to make a claim on your insurance, they’ll be giving free insurance estimates to anyone who needs them.
