Our Roots

My Name is Steve, I founded The Replace Base Ltd in 2009 when trying to source quality parts for just about anything family and friends could manage to break! It was around the time that my spare room was full of bits and pieces that I decided to start The Replace Base. With a background in electronics break / fix enginerring, I made the big decision to leave my stable job so I was able to put my time and undivided attention to use,  to source quality parts for as many devices as possible giving everyone the opportunity to fix, tinker, upgrade and modify devices!

10 years on, in 2020 and we have been through a lot! We now have a  dedicated team of 16 staff, a warehouse stacked full of parts and and recently opened our first of many "RepairBase" local repair shops. We currently stock thousands of parts for hundreds of devices and our inventory is growing every day.

Customers are at the heart of what we do and I genuinely believe that we have the best parts, team, processes and service in the industry. We appreciate each and every customer and do our very best to ensure that every customer has a lasting impression of us and would be the one and only place they think of when recommending to friends and family.

I'm still very much involved with the business and work every day, I love to tinker still but I'm usually found buried in spreadsheets and sourcing new stock - you will often catch me working on emails, phones and live chat too as I really enjoy helping customers and feel its important to help customers first hand to help us understand the ever changing needs and requirments of DIY fixers, independent repair shops and large corporations.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me, the business and our journey.
