Shop that fixes broken zip on suitcase

My Zip on my suitcase just came off the seam today and I fly again in 2 days. Anyone know where I could get this fixed in Lausanne?

Appreciate any ideas

Re: Shop that fixes broken zip on suitcase

I doubt you'll get anything repaired in 2 days, and if you do, then it'll cost the same as buying a cheap suitcase - that's my general experience.

The one time I had a case repaired under guarantee it took 2 weeks.

Suggest picking up a cheap replacement, that you can then also use as a back-up in case it happens again...

Re: Shop that fixes broken zip on suitcase

I think Carlos is right about not getting anything in two days. I think most things like this are sent away for specialist repair.

If it's a branded case, under warranty, and you don't mind a potentially wasted trip then you could try a local dealer. They might try to help you out - maybe lend you something or decide that it's not repairable and replace it under warranty.

If it's not then, especially in Switzerland, a repair probably costs more than a replacemement.

Thanks for the quick replies. Cant seem to find the warranty so I guess a new one is the easiest option,

Give it a go anyway. Some cases have a lifetime warranty, so you might get away with not having the warranty card. Even if not, you might be able to use the old case as a bargaining chip to get a bit of discount.

Mr Minute, or any other shoe repair place is worth a try.
