  • I would recommend this business

Steve knew the problem pretty much straight away when I explained the issue on the phone. Quick fix at a good price would happily use him again and recommend him.

Steve has been keeping both of our computers and various peripherals going for some time now. He's the best-always on time, always honest about what can and cannot be fixed, and scrupulously fair in his fees. We will never use anyone else as long as Steve is in business.

Steve has helped us with computer problems on several occasions. He is prompt to respond and always gets quickly to the bottom of the problem. We would be lost without him. I can highly recommend him for your computer problems. Steve makes home visits so you don't have to worry about disconnecting or reconnecting cables. Can't praise him highly enough.

Steve looked at my laptop last week, the job was quick and efficient. Unfortunately it was beyond repair, he then gave me various options for what I could do to recover my data on the hard drive. Thanks for all your efforts.

Customer Testimonials

Great service. Steve was happy to offer advice over the phone initially and when that didn’t work he sorted the problem out within 24 hours. Great to know I have found a trustworthy computer expert just along the road. We will definitely be back should the need arise. Thanks again Steve.


When I need help or advice about my computer or tablet, I ask Steve. I tell him what I want to achieve and ask him if it is possible. He usually has several suggestions, and then gives me reasons why one of them may suit me best. He explains everything clearly and the result is a very satisfied customer. I have no hesitation in recommending Behest for all computer problems.


Brilliant, friendly and efficient service. I'd recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys.


We have used Behest for several years now and have been very happy with the prompt and helpful service.
Steve is reliable and has sorted out all our issues...sometimes remotely which has been helpful.
Great service all round.


Steve has set up our small business computer system and advised us on expansion plans. Steve is our go to man when we need advice or upgrades or maintenance. He is reliable, extremely capable and deals well with the trail of IT chaos I leave in my wake when we get busy on projects. He fixes things with a smile and is extremely professional, even when I try to challenge him on why we should do things one way or another - he gives good sensible logical reasons which is most appreciated. Thanks Steve!


Steve Belleguelle is a pleasant, knowledgeable man, able to communicate with young and old, starter or experienced in the appropriate manner.

He is honest, forthright, superb at problem solving, handy to get hold of and reasonable. Who could ask for more? - we certainly wouldn't.


Its of great value to me to have a reliable, trustworthy, competent IT professional when I need one! I recommend Steve without reservation.

We're here to help you with all manner of laptop and desktop PC, tablet, phone, printer, wifi and home network difficulties you might find yourself with. We can set up new devices for you and we can help you with many of the problems that arise when they go wrong.


Behest Computer Services is a Pegswood-based business run by Steve and Heather Belleguelle. Steve graduated from Nottingham University in 1991 with a 2.1 BEng (Hons) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Since then he has worked in computer hardware and software development.

There are so many different aspects of life with computers that we can't list all the services that we can provide. However, we have put together a list of the areas where help in most commonly needed. If you can't see what you're looking for, please do get in touch to see if we can help. We provide a wide range of services to help you with your desktop PC, laptop, netbook, tablet, smartphone and other types of device you have! See the table below for the more common help we provide. If what you need isn't listed, give us a call or send us an e-mail to see how we can help.


Quite often it is possible to help you solve your computer problems over the phone and internet using remote support software. This can save you the cost of a callout or the inconvenience of dropping your machine off. A remote session consists of us talking you through downloading and running a small piece of software to enable us to share control of your computer to sort out your problems. If that's enough explanation for you, that's great, if not then this page gives a bit more information and will hopefully answer any questions and alleviate any concerns you may have.
