The Repair HUB

Share a secret address

We usually jealously guard the phone numbers of skilled Mr and Ms Fix-Its who still know the tricks of their trades. The Repair HUB, by contrast, requires to share hard information like names and addresses as well as positive personal experiences.
The Repair HUB is a database of information on these repairpersons and will grow into an on-site and online map of the extensive repair knowledge still available around us today.
Please share your secret knowledge on good repair addresses in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Repair HUB is an on-site and online database. When you visit Platform21 you can fill out an address card and file it in the HUB. We will publish your repair tips online as well, at the right side of this page.

You can also contribute your repair recommendations by sending us an e-mail. Within a few days, your favourite addresses will be featured on our website and in the on-site Repair HUB.
