Computer Repairs Cairns QLD

Updated: 2 June 2020

Whether you have a broken laptop screen or just require virus removal, we can have you back up and running fast. A lot of the time it’s something simple that we can diagnose and repair in just a few hours, in other cases your computer might need parts replaced or a full overhaul.

Did you know we spend an average of 130 hours each year waiting for PC’s to load! That’s 16 days or 3 full weeks at the office. The same SanDisk study found PC freezes and crashes are one of the top seven causes of stress in the workplace.

Slow computers cost you valuable time and money, so getting them working well is recommended to keep your business streamlined and profitable.

What we cover


How much do computer repairs cost?

The cost of computer repairs will all depend on what needs fixing. Sometimes your problems are from a virus that can be removed in minutes, but other times you may have a corrupt hard drive that needs replacing.

If you want to give us a quick call on 0499 235 506, we should be able to give you an estimate over the phone for all computer repair services in Cairns QLD 4870.

How much do we charge per hour?

We have found that charging an hourly rate is not a fair way to charge customers. If a computer notebook repair takes longer than we thought, we would prefer you still pay the same price. This is why we charged by the job. Nobody likes going to pick up their car from the mechanic only to find the “flux capacitor” needed replacing costing $500 extra!

A fixed price for computer repairs is great news for you the customer because no matter how long it takes, we will on honour our initial price.

Laptop repairs in Cairns

A lot of the time a computer manufacture will suggest you send your computer to them to be repaired, but this is just a way for themselves to drum up more business. Let’s face it, if they had done their job correctly the first time you would not need a repair!

Cost per hour also varies by the type of the fix needed to be done. It can range anywhere from $10 up to $40. Normally, for any repair that’s not included in the listing (like repairs mentioned above), price will be around $15/hour. That also applies for the number of repairers needed to repair the computer – the price will be per repairer for more than one hired repairer.

It depends on the company. In most cases, a warranty for all laptops lasts two years for individuals and one year for legal entities. It’s almost always possible to buy extra warranty period and this decision needs to be made during the initial payment. Warranty for battery is often 6 months and if you were to buy extra warranty period for the computer, it wouldn’t apply to the battery.

We would normally always suggest laptop repairs before replacements, since the issue might not be so extreme. However, in certain cases, there could be irreversible damage to the computer’s components and the fixes wouldn’t make any difference at all. If you need your computer urgently, we can borrow you a functional computer so that you can work, while we check the issues on your computer and try to fix them.

With our service, there isn’t days-long wait for our technicians to find the issue and fix it. We don’t keep your computer for months in our station. Our technicians repair computers in 7 to 12 workdays and another 2 days for testing the repaired computer. Our staff doesn’t give up so easily, even if the problem seems very severe and unsolvable – the success of computer repairs is over 80%.
