Self-insure or buy insurance for iPhones & Smartphones, iPads & Tablets, Laptops Chromebooks & MacBooks?


To be a successful business in today’s world means one thing and one thing only: to delight your customer with excellent products and exceptional service. Gone are the days when companies prided themselves on their operational efficiencies and production maximization. Now, it is all about placing the focus on the customer and adding value to their lives.

Businesses worldwide are making use of electronic devices, such as iPhones, iPads and Chromebooks, and other latest technology to interact with customers. This allows for mobility and makes sure that all communication with the customer is immediate and in real-time. However, electronic devices come with their own set of risks. Any malfunction or breakage may result in communication disruption, customer dissatisfaction, and, eventually, revenue loss. Therefore, it is in the business’s best interest to repair and replace any broken devices as soon as possible.

Repairing Devices by Self Insurance

Self-insurance is most businesses’ instinct. Companies believe they will save money by not buying insurance for their iPad, Chromebook, or laptop and repairing their own damaged devices. However, they may underestimate how often electronic devices breakdown and require repair and how long it takes to get the devices repaired or replaced if need be. This delay leads to downtime for the employee working in the field and adversely impacts productivity and morale.

The Dark Side of Self-Insurance

  1. Inability to adequately forecast true repair costs. Unless you’re in the device repair business yourself, there is a high chance that you’re not an expert at accurately estimating how much it would cost to repair or replace your iPad or laptop. Without this information, you are very likely to set an inadequate budget for device repair and face difficulties because of it.

  2. Failure to repair quickly. Businesses that self-insure their laptops and tablets will eventually rely on small local shops for device repair and replacement. Such shops have substandard quality and take too long to repair. Since the opportunity cost of a broken device to the business is high, a bad repair or a delay in repair can translate into falling revenue for the businesses, not to mention the additional stress of dealing with local shops and managing repairs.

  3. Paying too much for device repair. Self-insuring your company’s electronic devices means that you would not be able to enjoy the low cost that bulk buying of parts can afford. Hence, you will be paying more than you have to for getting your devices repaired and replaced.
