About Cumbria Tech

If you’ve just dropped your phone or need urgent repair work, you probably don’t care about how I founded Cumbria Tech with just £30 and grew it into Carlisle’s leading repair premises.  But, if you’re exploring options for the future or you’ve got time on your hands, make yourself a brew and let me tell you my story.

I’m Sean Wright, owner and founder of Cumbria Tech.  I love technology - it would be a surprise if I didn’t, given the job I do - but there’s nothing like switching off my phone, getting the hiking boots on and walking with my dogs: Oscar, Harry and Paddy.

Cumbria Tech began life in 2014 as Shaddon Phone Repair.  Since then, I’ve gone from a little office in a shared workspace to dedicated retail premises on Fisher Street, Carlisle.  These days, Cumbria Tech is Carlisle’s premier repair centre, with over 3,000 satisfied customers enjoying their newly-fixed devices.  Their testimonials highlight our friendly, competitive service – and make me go home feeling happy!

When I’m not repairing devices, I love spending time with my partner, Sue; cheering when Manchester United score at Old Trafford or watching top music acts perform live.  One of my favourite moments was going to a gig and meeting my teenage heroes, The Human League, at the SECC. 

To relax, I love sitting down and enjoying a fine malt whisky.  Cumbria Tech actually has a lot in common with a premium whisky: for example, a malt takes a minimum of 10 years to mature and Cumbria Tech is just three years away from its tenth birthday.

If you enjoy a little detective work, look closely at my logo to find clues about my other passions. The phone in my logo is breakdancing on one arm – just like I used to as a teenager in the 80’s, back when I didn’t creak like an old door!

As a proud Carlisle lad who loves my Lake District home, I had the crack on the phone screen designed to echo the shape of the mountains and fells I love to walk in.

Last, but not least, the phone in the logo has a heart on one arm – representing the fact that I wear my heart on my sleeve.  My passion and emotion extend into my business when I fix the devices customers bring to me.  Whether it takes an hour, or the problem requires me to scratch my head for a while, I’ll explore every avenue in order to fix the device.

I believe in quality, so I invested in the latest repair machines and technology stocks.  I know how it feels to break a device – it’s like a bag of ice hitting your stomach! – and I don’t want you to wait any longer than necessary to get your device back.  I have all the parts I need at my premises, so I can offer a lightning-fast turnaround and same-day fixes for mobile phones booked in before 2pm. 

Whether you need screens replaced, charging issues solved, batteries replaced or have a mystery issue that needs our free diagnostic services, I want to help.  Also, you’ll be helping me fund my guilty pleasures of Hugo Boss clothing and stripy socks!  (I’m size 9 if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas!)

I’m here Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm and on Saturday from 10am to 2pm.  Get in touch on 01228 597486 or email sean@cumbriatechrepair.co.uk

Let us breathe new life into your old technology.
