Questions to Ask a Repairman

Before you hand your computer (and your entire electronic life) over to a computer repair expert, there are a few questions you need to ask.

  • What are your qualifications and experience? You need to know that the repair person is capable of fixing your issue. You can take a look at locally rated and reviewed computer repair services in your area to find one you can trust.
  • Can you save my files? Even if you never lost access to your photos and documents, the repair person should still make a backup, just in case something goes wrong during the repair process.
  • How much will it cost? It's important to get an estimate of your final cost up front. You don't want to be surprised with any hidden fees. You should also ask about a minimum charge, because some computer issues might only take a few minutes to fix.
  • When will it be done? You've got to get back to work, so ask for a timeline and hold your repair person to it.

Typical Computer Repairs

  • Data Recovery: A virus or an accidental click can wipe out everything you've been saving. A computer repair expert might be able to get it back.
  • Virus Removal: There are annoying viruses, like those that cause popups, and downright dangerous viruses, like those that mine your personal information. Either way, you've got to remove it from your computer.
  • "My computer runs too slow!" This is a common complaint. A repair service can help you remove the programs that are slowing you down and get you running up to speed again.
  • Broken Keyboard: Sometimes a little debris gets caught under the keys, sometimes the keys are worn out, and sometimes you really need a professional to figure out why that "s" won't work.
  • Booting (Too Often or Not at All): If you've ever had your computer restart itself for no reason, or if it won't boot up after you start it, you'll want to call an expert.

Average Cost

As with any type of service, the cost will vary according to geographical location. Computer repair services usually charge by the hour, with an on-site visit being more expensive. It also pays to look at the price of new equipment for your home office or personal computing needs. Sometimes, the cost of repairing an old device is more than the cost of replacing it.

Of course, sometimes you don't have a problem with the computer itself, but with the network or the wiring. In older homes, for example, the outdated wiring might not be suitable for running multiple computers. You'll need a licensed electrician to deal with any wiring issues, and you can save money by finding a professional who is also an expert in computer networking. The average national cost of repairing a computer network is $145.

"While I had an initial issue with the first person who did not show up. Andy very much apologized, rescheduled my appt, and the tech who showed up was on time. While I was a computer genius, and I am learning a new operating system. He was extremely helpful, answered every question and more, and was able to transfer my data from a crashing laptop which was an Apple Mac Book Pro. That you Andy and your Tech. Very nice young man and I wish him the best with his upcoming wedding. Laura Frey"
