Can anyone rebuild laptops?

Please help! I have 5 old laptops, some working, some broken, that all have different things wrong with them. Some were very expensive and hot stuff in their day, and may only need minor repairs. Other working parts could be salvaged from the broken machines to fix others....

I know it's possible, but my go-to laptop fixer lives in England!

If this is a job that you think you can take on, please contact me. Experienced techies only though please, no tinkerers! My husband can tinker but I really want an expert on the job.
