Hurricane Harvey certainly left a lot of devastation in its wake, where homes were destroyed, lives were lost, and families were uprooted and displaced. It also meant a lot of personal property was damaged in the process, such as phones, which in a time like this would be rather essential to communicate with loved ones or to seek help.

Last we heard, Apple was apparently unofficially offering free iPhone repairs to customers who might have had their devices damaged during Hurricane Harvey, where the company is reported to offer users free repairs for damages that would otherwise not be covered. Now it seems that Google is doing the same for Pixel owners, thanks to a collaboration with uBreakiFix.

In a post on uBreakiFix’s website, the company announced that customers who have had their Pixel phones damage during Hurricane Harvey are eligible for free repairs. “In an effort to provide some small relief to our customers and friends in the Houston area who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey, we’ve teamed up with Google to offer free repairs on all Pixels.”

Affected customers can take their devices to a variety of uBreakiFix locations which includes The Heights, Rice Village, Pearland, Pasadena, West Chase, Sugar Land, and Webster, all of which are located in the Houston area. However note that these free repairs will only be valid until the 30th of September, so you might want to hurry if you want to take advantage of the offer.
