When you look for computer service, do you always check for the “lowest priced” computer repair technician? Beware of the lowest price! Not all “computer techs” are the same. Approximately 85% of our customers come to us after having a really bad experience with the “low price guy.” Now they’ve paid for the same repair twice. The lowest price turned out to be more expensive and more time consuming!
“There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper—and the people who consider price alone are this man’s lawful prey.”John Ruskin (1819–1900)
Unlike other countries, there is ZERO regulation in the computer installation and computer repair industry in Canada. There are literally tens of thousands of uncertified and unqualified “computer techs” across Canada preying on unsuspecting consumers every day. The lowest priced computer repair technician will often fit into this bucket.
Auto mechanics, plumbers and even hairstylists are required by law to be licensed and certified in Canada. Not so with our industry! If you receive a bad haircut, your hair will grow back. Not so with your data! Once your data’s gone, it’s gone forever.
Did I get a “cheap” tech?
When choosing the cheapest price, you often get what you pay for. Ask your self these questions:
- Does he have proper company credentials?
- Is he insured?
- Does he have proper certification?
- Will he provide you with detailed estimate before he starts?
- Does he explain in layman’s terms?
