Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain their products, services and charges (incl VAT, where applicable)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the products or services would be provided.?
 
Payment: 92%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how and when to pay?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep its promises about costs, timing etc. and agree any changes?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the breakdown of charges (and VAT, where applicable)?
 
Guarantee: 93%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Laptop crashed after updates. Re-installed programmes and laptop back to it''s old self.
 
Cost: £60
 

"He was friendly and helpful. Did not patronise me, which is always good. Offered me a choice as to how could get laptop working again. Work completed by the next day. Good that he is open on Saturday, as unable to get out of work during the week. Laptop is working properly again. Would have no hesitation in recommending him."

My old laptop was operating extremely slow and having purchased a new one, James at Computer Fixer transferred all my data from the old one to the new one
 
Cost: £66
 

"James was helpful and patient and spoke in layman terms which meant I understood what work he was attempting to conduct for me.
He exoplained the work and the approximate charge prior to carrying out the work and contacted me halfway through the work to clarify what he was required to do"

Upgraded OS on two touch-screen laptops from XP to W7 - required by me to run specific training packages that needed W7. Price shown was for the two laptops combined, and included the cost of the W7 OS for each laptop.
 
Cost: £200
 

"James is friendly and knowledgeable. I've used him before to get our home PC's running better (and upgraded OS from Vista to W7). I knew what to expect from previous work where our tired home PCs were assessed, cleaned-up inside and upgraded. Still both working well, and the recently upgraded laptops also doing what is expected."

Customer Review
 
James checked my aging laptop for free. He could have fixed the current problem and not told me that other things would break due to age.
He recommended the most relevant laptop to buy - even before he knew where I would decide to buy one.
He spent at least 40 minutes talking and explaining.
 

"James is very knowledgeable, he treats each customer with equal respect.
He could have fixed the Acre but was honest enough to say that due to its age - there would be various repairs needed very soon and that it would be wiser to start a new with a new laptop. He did not push me to buy one from him. However, 1 decided to buy a new one and appreciated all the information and the recommendations from him. He really is an expert and so friendly. "

Cost: £60

"James did a first class job on the laptop, correcting problems and adding extra memory and simplicity of functions as I asked num to do.
I am a "dinosaur" when it comes to computer technology but James could not have been more helpful, very pleasant to deal with. His charge I felt was very reasonable too."
