Is Geek Squad more expensive?

Geek Squad charges more than $120 for computer repair. Compare this to my low rate of just $69.99 for online service. Geek Squad computer technicians average 1-5 years of experience*. Compare that with my more than 25 years of helping folks all over the U.S.

Why is Geek Squad so Expensive?

Geek Squad along with other large computer repair providers such as Nerds On Call do a lot (to say the least) of national advertising, and operate a fleet of wrapped vehicles. Someone has to pay for this. They also tend to really push you to buy additional services and/or products.

You can have your computer repair performed online if you are able to access the Internet. You’ll pay just $69.99 and nothing if its bad news or can’t be resolved online. I will save you money compared to Geek Squad prices, and my service is unmatched. Just read the reviews.

Whether its a laptop or desktop computer I will do my best to get it running at its best for you as inexpensively as possible.

Recent Tech Jeff Review

I just went through a computer scam that cost me $5,400 in Apple gift cards. I needed to have my computer checked for any implanted virus or malware before I started my new bank account. I contacted Jeff and was really pleased with the service I received. He checked my computer and then asked if there was anything else. I had a problem with the email address for my daughter. That little problem took 45 minutes to fix. He is real easy to talk to and very good at explaining things. He also said that he would answer any questions I might have later. I would call him again without hesitation and will recommend him to friends.
