Mac repair shop woes

We have a faulty hard drive from a mac which we would like data recovery. We took the mac to a mac repair shop and they were unable to recover as the mac was faulty and would cause further damage to the hard drive. They removed the hard drive and advised it would need ? Forensic recovery. Is this a service you provide?

Problems with iMacs
My iMac shut down. It’s 5 years old. The first repair centre I visited told me it was a mechanical failure of the hard drive and that I needed to go to Apple to get my hard drive out and send it to a recovery data centre.
I went to Apple and they said my hard drive files were empty and that it was a software problem. They wanted to reformat the hard drive but I said no. Now I would like to know if my data can be recovered….

The one tb hard drive in my 2000gb imac failed. I have had it replaced locally and have the faulty disk. Local repairer attempted to recover data but pcb damaged and they suggested a specialist. I think there was only around 500gb of data on it. How much would it cost to recover data and would this be to an external hard disk drive ?

Macbook AirFew Issues.
Mac doesn’t display HD.

Have tried different Cables and on different Macs and its the same problem across.

Mid 2013 MacBook Air model A1465 was liquid damaged on Saturday. Apple store reviewed and said logic board, top sheet, etc, covered and knackered, but SSD looked like it had escaped, pulled drive for me. Have tried connecting it with an external enclosure from OWC, but completely unresponsive. Possible the drive was damaged by liquid, or potentially at some point during the transfer to the enclosure, though no obvious physical signs.
