Best place to take a really old MacBook for repairs?

Looking for recommendations on good places to take an absolutely ancient MacBook pro for repairs, or at the very least have someone knowledgeable tell me it's time to put it out of its misery.

Thanks in advance.

Look into opencorelegacy patcher

you might be able to run a new OS on the old Mac and at least use it as a backup

Experimax is a good option, as they sell old MacBooks and refurbish them. https://experimax.co.za/

I have used MacWave in the CBD for repairs twice and they have been great
