Ways To Avoid Costly Data Recovery

Protect Your Computer

Make sure to protect your computer from electrical surges, brownouts, and blackouts. At the very least, every computer user should have a decent surge protector on their computer and phone line if they use a modem. Surge protectors help protect your computer during an electrical storm and could save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs if it were to get damaged. Also, having computers on a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) prevents damage to a computer during a brownout or blackout.

Keep safe from viruses, spyware, phishing, and spam

Every computer connected to the Internet or other networks needs to be protected from viruses. We recommend having some form of antivirus program installed and running on the computer. It’s also a good idea to have a malware detection program to pickup any spyware or malware that antivirus may not detect. Finally, every computer user should also be fully aware of other security risks such as chain mails, phishing, and spam while on the Internet.

How long will my repair/service take?

How much will my repair cost me?

We will always give a flat rate for the repair if you aren’t a business. This means if your computer is fixed within the hour it will only be $50, but if it takes longer, even days, it will only be $100 total (if done inside our office).  This is per device and parts cost extra of course if needed. There is no charge to diagnose the fault.  We don’t want you to have any nasty surprises; we want you to know exactly what your repair will cost before we complete the work.

Why would I want to use you when I could go to a big shop front repairer?

As we work out of a backyard office, there is very little overhead so we bring the savings back to you.  We also provide a professional one-on-one atmosphere, where you aren’t just a customer number; a real relationship is formed.  You will find our prices are very competitive, both in labour and parts if required.  With all the experience I have, there is no job I cannot do.
