Customer Testimonials

1st Direct have looked after me and my computers for years now, generally upgrading bit by bit rather than a complete rebuild. The latest work was an upgrade from XP to Win 7; they made it as painless as it could be. Very happy with the service and would recommend them to anyone.

Just got back home with my laptop, took it in yesturday as it wouldnt work.. bought it from them a while ago, got an update yesturday afternoon, and if I hadn't gone into town they would have rung to tell me the good news, all fixed. Thank you guys!

1st Direct have been looking after our business since around 2000 which itself says a lot. Knowledgeable, friendly, responsive and always try to find the most cost-effective answer. Where many providers would insist on selling new units these guys repair what we have, and do so very well. Almost every week I get another hopeful provider call me looking for our business and they all get the same "go away, we're happy where we are" response. Highly recommended!

@b10track_nige unfortunately the repair cost will be higher than simply replacing it with a new one; unless the stored data is important?

1st Direct's technicians have been supporting small-to-medium businesses in the North West of England for over ten years, and through our dedicated service team located in Preston's City Centre we provide an unparalleled business IT service. Whether you're a new business start-up, or frustrated with your existing IT service provider, we would love to hear from you. We have built up strong relationships with hundreds of businesses in and around Preston and Lancashire, and continue to support them with their day-to-day IT operations, striving to exceed their expectations.

Part of our success is due to regular custom from our loyal clients, who operate and/or live within the districts of Preston City and South Ribble. To show our appreciation, all local customers benefit both from minimal callout charges for IT support, and a free collect & return service on computer repairs. Not all of our customers we provide IT maintenance to are local - over 15% are situated further afield.
