What is amaing is that people hand over their $1000 device to a store to repair, without any form of security over the item. So if the business disappears, then they maybe completely out of pocket, as they sometimes end become a creditor. I would like to see some consumer protection for this type of thing. I am guessing some credit cards may provide some type of insurance. Although that usually only applys when initially purchasing., and not 6 months down the track when it develops a fault that needs repairing. It is one area where it can pay to shop in NZ, but even NZ companies can disappear.

The article does not mention repairs. Legally the repair item is still the property of the owner.
