Recently I spilled water on my Mac. Instead of pay $700+ to get it fixed at the Apple Store, I decided to give it a try with a local shop. I was told that I'd be taking a risk having it cleaned internally, but in the end it was completely worth it. For less than $200 in labor and a new power button, I had my computer back! When I was telling them how satisfied I was with their service, I was told another customer didnt want to pay for the same internal cleaning procedure since its not free, and left them a bad review because of that. I just read it here, and I cant believe someone expects a company to do ANYTHING for free! What a shame. Well, I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about this company. I recommend.

If there were a NEGATIVE star, I would certainly use it for this place. I'm also glad to see that I'm not the only one who thought this place pretty much sucks! Price gouging and bait/switch is what the description on the Web Site should be...

I took my Macbook Pro in that will boot up but has no video and they wanted me to pay over $150.00 with absolutely NO guarantee that it would be fixed. That was for basic troubleshooting and cleaning up the inside. Then, if that didn't fix it - they would then troubleshoot the components. I asked it they could trouble shoot the components first, before cleaning (to possibly save the 100.00) and they said no. Potentially - this could have cost as much as getting a NEW motherboard on Ebay for 300.00 - without the guarantee they can actually fix it.

So - am now bidding for a motherboard to replace it myself. Luckily, I am in the field of technology and know when I'm being taken advantage of when it comes to this kind of work. Apparently taking a computer apart (in their words) takes quite a bit of work. I can talk my 14 year old niece through it in 10 minutes!! These guys are full of it.

DON'T TAKE YOUR EQUIPMENT HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE RIPPED OFF!!!!

Here is a place in Fremont, CA that won't charge you unless they actually fix it and you can ship it there for cheap:

Business Response:

Dear Client: you SPILLED WATER in your computer and you were expecting a company to fully disassemble, clean it up inside and promise you magical results before even knowing if you have to replace parts and for FREE? you were given your computer back FREE OF CHARGE for not accepting the terms of service. You called me before you even bring your computer to the shop and I told you in advance that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO AN INTERNAL CLEAN UP IN YOUR COMPUTER FOR FREE! Still you brought your computer to the shop and pretended you did not understand i told you we cannot do such a time consuming job for free. We did not promise anything that we did not deliver. your review is an abuse on your right to express your lack of satisfaction with a company. Next time you expect something for free please do not target a small business to do that for you as we have bills to pay and cannot provide free services. You were told that upfront and we never offered you anything we could not perform. We were realistic in every single aspect of everything that was proposed to you. best regards Rod

Thanks,

I recently had my iMac fixed at your shop and could not have been more pleased. Being in the service industry I recognize how hard it is to find great service oriented people. The results were great and Sue was extraordinarily professional, compassionate and helpful. The price seemed phenomenal and I will recommend any I know with a Mac to take bring it to you.

Rod is great. Comes on time. Got my office set up, fair pricing and he will answer questions without charging $100 just to pick up the phone or respond to an email. He will continue to have my business.

Rod at Geek Available is FANTASTIC! I discovered Rod when I needed a computer expert to help me right away. Rod came to my home office the same afternoon I called and immediately fixed the problem. Since then I have called Rod twice with computer problems I need fixed right away in order to complete time sensitive work assignments. In both cases Rod was at my home office within an hour and 1/2 and immediately fixed the problem. Great and prompt service!

Had a simultaneous hardware crash and virus infection. The techs at Geekavailable systematically fixed both problems and returned my computer in like-new working order. Then in a house call my internet was restored. I recommend Geekavailable without reservation.

The folks there removed a virus that made my laptop unusable. And it now boots more quickly and shuts-down more quickly as well. The virus was a bad virus and they still finished the work before the end of the next day.

Fabulous Experience. Rod came and fixed my problem in less than 24 hours from my initial call. He gave me superb practical advice on how to save time and money. He communicated at a level I was able to understand without a bit of condescension. Rod networked my printers and 4 computers and was done in < 75 minutes. I would highly recommend this business. Trustworthy, efficient and very personable!!!!

Pros: Same Day Computer Repair in up to 85% of the cases

I was really worried, because my whole life passes inside my laptop! I've called Rod Pereira, like a friend of mine recommended. He easily spotted that my problem was tons of virus inside my laptop. I'm not an expert, but also not an alien in computer matters, I haven't noticed before that the slowness and problems I was experiencing could be virus. Anyway, my next thought was: I'm not taking this "same day" talk at all! I'm glad I didn't put some money on my guess... . I had my computer back, faster than ever, clean of virus, with no data loss at all, at the very same day, as well as a good explanation of what was done labor wise, for an affordable price! I'm glad now I don't have any doubt about where to go when I need my computer fixed again! From my heart: Thank you, GeekAvailable! Rick

Rod and the rest of the gang at geek available got our office back up and running in about 24 hours. This included removing viruses and networking together 3 computers. We called numerous other people that didn't show up or didn't call back. From the time I called Rod, he returned my call in 10 minutes, I dropped the computers off, and he delivered them back the next day and fixed our network problems. Rates were standard, but Rod didn't waste any time. We will call Rod and Geek Available for any further technical service or advice.

I've used Geek Available for the last few years and have never been disappointed. Rod really knows his computers and is able to do work in a much shorter period of time than many other technicians I've used, so he's worth the extra money. It comes out even in the end. He has never failed to help me with what I need, and he does not keep me waiting for days and days. When it was time for a new computer, he got me a great one for a good price. I would highly recommend Geek Available to anyone.

My IBM Thinkpad is back up and running better than the day I took it out of the box. The degree of frustration I encountered dealing with the manufacturer/vendor of my 18 month old computer was exceeded only by the pleasure of the professional, fast and highly competent service provided by Rod and Geekavailable. I will have no hesitation in bringing my business there in the future and recommending them to everyone I know.
