We Are Repair.

Over three million Americans work hard every day to keep our cars, computers, appliances, and other critical infrastructure operating smoothly.

Repair is the lifeblood of local economies. Our members make products last longer, save owners money, and create local jobs.


A Competitive Repair Market is Vital to The Economy

When manufacturers own the only repair shop around, prices go up and quality goes down. Competition is better for customers, but mom and pop repair shops are struggling with unfair practices by multinational corporations. Consumers and repair pros are starting to fight back.


86% of Voters

in Massachusetts overrode big car companies and passed the Automobile Owners’ Right to Repair Law in 2012.

114,322 Americans

signed a petition to legalize cell phone unlocking. The White House and Congress responded by changing the law.

One million People

have joined open source repair groups like iFixit to learn how to fix their stuff—because manufacturers won't help.

When you can’t take something apart, you can’t understand it. When it breaks, you can’t fix it. When you want to do something more, you can’t modify it.
— Tim O'Reilly
