What Makes a Good Computer Shop
When reviewing computer repair shops, it’s important to look at the criteria that make them good. Here’s what you want to look for:
- They should be able to fix your computer as quickly as possible
- They should be reasonably priced
- They need reliable and knowledgeable employees who can actually carry out the fixes
- They should go above and beyond to help their customers
- They need specialised knowledge in particular computer systems and parts of computers
- They will be up front and tell you the truth if they can’t fix your computer, and give recommendations on what to do next
If you are looking for straight-forward advice from a business that won’t rip you off, ATM Computers are quite probably the company you need. They are based in Belconnen and have been around since 1998, so they definitely have a lot of experience.
Reviewers say that they have “been happy with their service and prices every time,” that they were “up front when they haven’t been able to fix something for me”, and that they always give “honest advice”.
They can also be relied upon to go above and beyond the call of duty for their customers. One past customer recalls having a home visit to set up a new computer which “cost less than when they’ve dropped their computer off at the shop”.
Their staff includes a Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) and can work with both Windows and UNIX/LINUX systems.
Based in Wanniassa, this company is perfect for all kinds of computer repairs, although they do not sell computer parts. They will only provide them if needed for the repair itself.
They do not have a shop front, which means you need to get in touch with them first before you arrange a repair – there’s no way to drop in with your machine. They do diagnosis appointments and will charge by the hour for repairs as well.
The good news is that you can book online, so if you don’t like talking on the phone, there’s no need to panic. They are open Mondays through to Saturdays but closed on public holidays.
This business is based in Mawson. They have been described by customers as “straightforward, honest and quick”, which is just about all you can ask for in a software company. Bruce Yao is highlighted as one of their best workers, though if he has since left the company, you can still rely on others there.
They offer plenty of services such as new systems, upgrades, repairs, network services, and support for retail or wholesale solutions. They can do repairs on site, or work on a computer and then deliver it back to you. They do not charge call-out fees for on-site work but a minimum service time of one hour is required.
