I know Core in CBD replace them - cnr Wellesley and Lorne. Friend went there last year, they also did student discount for him. Can't remember how much it was, but it wasn't too bad from memory.

I found Computers Unlimited at 171 Target Road, Wairau Park, North Shore, very good (and good value) for iphone repairs.  Seems to genuinely care about doing a good job.

Not very easy, Phone number is 443 5684, 021 232 1954.  rajan@computersunlimited.co.nz.

Watch out for the dodgy retailers and make it very clear ' you want genuine parts fitted ' and get this on the receipt

You will not get genuine parts - Apple doesn't sell parts and doesn't repair phones - even their approved service agents are unable to supply genuine parts.

If someone says they are supplying genuine then they are either lying or being misled from their supplier.

That's not to say you can't get a good quality repair, it's just that it's mode by 3rd party manufacturers.

And to add to this, if it is still under warranty then you void it by getting it repaired by one of these places.
An Apple Authorised Service Provider can offer to swap your phone with a whole unit replacement, with your broken one being returned to Apple, at a good price and you get either a 90 day warranty or whatever is left on your original phone warranty, whichever is longer.

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

And this will take care of all damage, rather than just 'replacing the screen' and hoping that no internal damage has occurred as a result of the impact.

You can contact Apple for the nearest Apple store. Apple usually charges $129 (plus tax) to fix a broken iPhone 5s screen. If you can't get to an Apple store, you can mail your device in to Apple for a shipping fee of $6.95. If you purchased AppleCare+ ($99 for two years) for your device, you'll only have to pay $79 for a screen repair -- though AppleCare+ only covers two incidents of accidental damage. If you think that is too much you can get an iPhone 5s screen replacement from reliable suppliers like hcqs.cc and do the repair by yourself.

If you drop your phone causing physical damage your warranty is void anyway.

Suggest that if you want to get it done do it now as the price of screens from overseas suppliers has doubled in the last 2 weeks couple that with the major slide in the dollar and it's now a very expensive screen.
