Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas hard last week and the aftermath is still affecting millions of people along the East Coast. Now, Google is working with a long-time partner to fix Pixel devices that were damaged in the storm.

The best gifts for Android users

Announced on its blog today, uBreakiFix and Google are working together to offer free repairs for those who had their devices damaged during Hurricane Florence. Users affected in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina can get a free repair for a Pixel/XL (2016), Pixel 2, or 2 XL free of charge. These free repairs cover water damage and cracked screens and last through October 19th. No appointments are needed and any uBreakiFix location in affected areas are able to assist.

This isn’t the first time Google has partnered with uBreakiFix for this sort of deal either. When Hurricane Harvey struck Texas, the two companies also offered free repairs to affected customers, and uBreakiFix continues to offer walk-in repairs for all Pixel devices.

If you were affected by Hurricane Florence and your device was damaged in the process, you can head to uBreakiFix’s website to check out a list of locations where you can get your phone fixed.

Following the devastation of Hurricane Florence, uBreakiFix and Google are once again offering free repairs on all Pixel models for those affected in the coastal Carolinas, coastal Virginia and beyond.

To redeem a repair on a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL, visit your nearest uBreakiFix location in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. To find a location near you, visit our locations page or call our customer support team at (877) 320-2237.

The free repairs will cover water damage and cracked screens and will be available through Friday, October 19, while supplies last. No appointment necessary; simply walk into your local store to redeem.

Our hearts go out to all those affected, and we want to help you stay connected to friends, family, and anyone who can help in the aftermath of the storm.
