Rates and Charges

Our standard rate is $140 an hour to solve your computer problem and to provide other IT services, hardware parts if required are an additional cost. We can achieve this because we do not don’t have the high overheads that the chains and Front Store shop have.  With lower running costs we can pass this saving onto our customers, providing affordable repairs and services. Repairs are usually completed within half hour to two hours.  We never charge over 3 hours labour no matter how lengthy your repair job may be (when the work is undertaken in our workshop in Taree).  We make sure that our customers are kept informed during the repair process so that you are aware of the likely costs to fix your PC, Laptop or Mac.

We charge fix fees for some common problems, such as Reset Windows Password for $70, Re-install any Windows Systems and Virus/malware Removal for $140, for a full list please see Price List.
