I am a sole trader with a fully equipped workshop at my home in Stanley Street, Bedford. I also visit many local businesses and private homes.
I believe in providing the highest standards of customer care and quality workmanship. I think my professional approach and commitment to quality has helped me to build a successful business with many customers coming back time after time.
I am a CompTIA A+ Certified Professional and CISCO Certified. In addition, I have many years of experience in the computer repairs industry, having worked with well known local businesses and residents.
