Get to know a bit about the operations at JoesGE with this nifty video, or, read on to learn about the people behind the logo, read our story, and hopefully, be entertained for hours.
We are a company built on great people (da doi), It feels like family here. Some of us grew up together and others are related. If that piques your interest, get to know us a bit below, or scroll past us to read a bit about the company (If words are more your thing or if you are just procrastinating and need to occupy your time with something).
And for the word readers, here's a digital novel complete with hyperlinks to random fun websites with more words on them.
We appreciate you being here as it means you are probably a caring wonderful individual that does not want to send their beloved electronics in to some random company in the boondocks for repair. First off, in the interest of full disclosure, we are indeed in the boondocks. Secondly, of course, is the fact that we care for your electronics as though they were our own and do our best to maintain a level of communication that we would want if we sent our own electronics in to a company for repair.
Everything moves so fast nowadays--texts, emails, those fake Facebook friend requests. All of this trains us to crave constant communication, which is why we also desire to keep in contact with you throughout your whole repair or ordering process.
I've already admitted that we're located out in the boondocks, in the Pacific Northwest to be a bit more specific. Around here we're known for our rain, in all its many forms: drizzle, downpour, showers, torrential, and--my personal favorite--sideways. Fortunately, the only kind of rain we don't get is acid rain, and we want to keep it that way. This is the reason that we care about the environment. We are a refurbishing company, which means that we take things that would be thrown into landfills and repurpose or repair them. This means fewer new products need to be created and fewer products end up polluting the lush green and blue orb that we live on, which in turns means less chance that you will be seeing acid rain in your 10 day weather forecast. I wonder how Siri would describe the conditions that day, "Clear and sunny in the morning with a chance of acid rain later so make sure to hide everything you own under a lead umbrella." That doesn't sound fun so let's keep taking care of this place.
I bet when you first came to this page, you had no idea how long it would be, then, you saw all of the videos and words, and punctuation, and hidden pineapples (just one pineapple actually, if you send us a screen shot of it, we will give you 5% off your order) and ninjas and you freaked out and either left or maybe just watched the video or stared longingly at our highly attractive staff members, but dang, if you made it this far congrats, you're either a heavy user of blog websites, you enjoy a good piece of literature when you read it, or maybe you just wanted our contact info? Gosh, you didn't need to read all of this just to find our contact info, but hey, who am I to judge, I spent all this time writing this whole thing. I could have been eating the pizza that's next to me. Now that's a sacrifice for the company, if I do say so myself.
Anyways, you probably just skipped straight to the contact info which is likely what I would do as well so feel free to do the communication dance with your fingers and tap them around to get connected to the voice of a human being, or to a human being that is also doing the communication dance on their keyboard, with their fingers, which are attached to them (hopefully).
Update 6/9/2022 @ 6:09PM PDT
We just looked at this page while updating our About us video and decided that it needed more words, but rather than deleting words (what a waste 🚮) we thought, heck, might as well add words since it doesn't feel like this page really soaks up enough of your time as it is and our contact info is already available at the top of the website so if there is more space between that and the contact info that you will eventually get to down below it wouldn't be the end of the world.
After thoroughly reading the above multiple times because I couldn't focus on other works tasks, I determined it made a lot of sense to talk a bit more about our beginnings because who doesn't love a good rags to riches story (Not that rich tho 😬).
Joe was a poor old sod who grew up in a land far far away...from people (Except us, well, most of us, who lived very close by). He managed to scrape together enough corn to purchase a GameCube and after getting bored watching the startup screen because he couldn't get any games, he decided to sell the GameCube which brought him significant joy. Finale.
Update 10/09/2022 @12:04 PM PDT
It came to our attention that there were a significant amount of details left out of the previous update especially during the 8 years between Joe selling a GameCube and the present time. Then we sent someone to can that person but he failed to do so. Because of this, we have canned the guy who was sent to can the first guy and also canned the first guy so the story should be much better from here on out.
We thought it may be interesting to note that he also purchased and became bored by a few other items in this time which has essentially led to where we are now. Basically, what I am saying, is that Joe gets very bored using electronics and prefers to sell them instead (Except for certain bluetooth speakers which he becomes fond of for a few weeks before selling them to anyone who asks). After some time Joe began running out of time so he hired a few of his friends who lived nearby and they worked out of his parents garage. It was a significant amount of work becoming bored of enough electronics to ever have anything in stock but eventually, we became the most bored people ever and have now optimized, streamlined, and unified the process which allows us to sell quite a few electronics and even fix electronics for other people and teach them to fix their own electronics. The only skills we will never pass on to other are the skills pertaining to how to be the most bored person ever. Those skills have been written down and deposited in a very secure location where no one will ever see them. All we can say, is that it involves reading a lot of paragraphs of useless information so we're pretty sure that you would hate the process anyways. Anywho, back to the story, uh, lets see, bored, bored, boooored and yes! There we are, in the garage, getting bored, soooo bored when all of a sudden we realize that we have enough money to move out of the garage and into a sweet building where they used to build furniture back when everyone walked to school uphill both ways (good times) and after sitting in all of the furniture that was left behind, we tore it apart and built desks out of it which was fun (who doesn't love working wood?) then we basically just hired a guy to take videos and now we're here, (the power of marketing, amiright?)
I think that about covers everything, here's our contact info.
