Default Hard Drive Rebuild

Hello All!
I have a client who's hard drive physically stopped working a few years ago. The drive wont spin or anything, and he has vital information stored in there. He took it to a local place and they were going to charge him a rather ridiculous amount to restore its functionality. Is there a service in the united states that can restore his drive (repair the platters/heads, etc.)? I understand i can google this information but i'd rather take the word of this forums members. thank you in advance.

-Luis Rodriguez

They are all pretty expensive, 200$-1000$ I've been quoted serveral times. I don't have a place I really like, but I wouldn't go to Fields I haven't had the best of luck with them. They seem to have about twice the failure rate of everyone else I've ever used.

200-1,000 is a LOT better then what he got quoted (2,500)

Just wondering - how vital can it actually be after a few years?

Sorry for the delayed response, but apparently this hard drive has a .pst file of a previous employee with vital attachments of legal documents for their (international) business. I mentioned they could pay a visit to their lawyers and try to get copies, but they'd rather get them off the hard drive to avoid the "hassle."
