One of the most frustrating things that can happen in life is a computer crash. Computers are complicated machines and technical problems are often hard to solve yourself. Often when people try to solve their computer problems on their own, they make things even worse. Therefore, it is recommended to hire a professional computer repair company. However, not all computer repair companies charge the same prices. Some companies are incapable and will not solve your problem at all. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to give some practical advice on choosing the right company.

Geek Squad

This is one of the best services in the United States for computer problems. They are cheap and effectively solve your problems. They are spread all over America; therefore it is likely that they will you out the next day.  However, geek squad doesn’t only solve computer problems, you can also consult them if your TV/iPod/phone or camcorder is broke. You can also choose to deliver the broken item at a Best Buy store in your neighborhood. In this case, geek squad will repair it there. At every repair, you will get a code that you can use online to see the progress of the repair.

Geek choice

The best thing of Geek choice is that they are available 24/7. They even promise to help you within 24 hours after scheduling your appointment! Lately, there have been some negative reviews about this company and its chairman, Damien Moye, but these reviews were written by local competitors of the company. I can attest that this company is legit and will solve your problems from my own experience.

I would say this is the best option for Australian people. I have lived for 2 years in Brisbane, and when my computer crashed or I had a virus on my PC I called these guys. What I really like about these guys is the so called ‘No cure, No pay’ procedure. When these guys cannot solve your problem, which rarely happens, you will not have to pay! However, this company not only solves problems, they can also make your computer better. For example, I have used their service of improving the computer speed. This worked very effective and normally my computer took 6 minutes to boot, but after these guys came to improve the computer, it only took 2 minutes. is one of the cheapest services I have ever seen. They are based in London, so it is only available for British people. But, if you are in the UK and you have computer problems, do not doubt any longer, is the best option. Just like they have a ‘No fix, No pay’ procedure, so you can never go wrong with these guys. Even if your laptop is un-repairable, you can still sell it to


A broken computer can be very frustrating, especially if you don’t have any technical skills. The shops described in this review are the best in their country. I would recommend Geek Squad or Geek Choice if you live in the United States, for Australian people and for British people.
