Latest Reviews and Feedback

As an OAP with very little knowledge of the workings of computers, I have been relying on Malcolm, who runs this business, to look after my home computer for the last 10 or so years. He calls once a year to check the computer and update anything that needs sorting out. He has made a couple of visits between the annual visit to sort out a temporary problem and has helped me to choose and buy a new computer. I have complete faith in his ability and reliability and would have no hesitation in recommending this business to any individual or company.
