Steve Holcroft

Owner

My name is Stephen Holcroft and I started Bluefish Computer Services in 2011. Based in Chichester Bluefish offers friendly, fast and reliable computer repair and maintenance services to small business and residential customers in and around West Sussex.

I have been a computer engineer for 22 years. After leaving the University of Hertfordshire in 1998 with an HND in Business Information Technology I worked for various large corporate companies around the country looking after their I.T systems.

In 2011, I took the decision to start Bluefish Computer Services and work for myself. I have helped thousands of residential customers from the young to the very elderly with all different levels of knowledge; I am CRB checked and a member of Trading Standards Buy with Confidence Scheme.

I support all kinds of small businesses with their I.T systems including architects, opticians, solicitors, schools etc… I like to think I have a patient and personable approach and I will always take the time to explain and answer questions in a no-nonsense way.

When I am not fixing computers, I enjoy sailing dinghies in Chichester Harbour with my family. I also enjoy mountain biking on the South Downs, walking the dog on the beach and a spot of gardening.

We just moved to the area and both mine and my partners laptops had issues. Bluefish took them in and gave us a price to fix them both, we ended up fixing one (broken screen) and selling the other laptop to them as not worth the repair cost. They also fixed my webcam (loose wire) free of charge and removed a login error that kept popping up. Friendly, local, professional small business, would highly recommend!

I guess I'm lucky living just a few hundred metres from Steve, but I would travel much further to get this kind of service. Steve has baled me out on problems with my PC and laptop 3 times in the past 2/3 years. The problem is always quickly diagnosed and just as quickly repaired. Great service, thoroughly recommended.

Last week, my wife's photo processing PC failed. She uses it daily for work and needed it to be resolved quickly and reliably. Bluefish appeared high on my google search and had good feedback so I looked no further, and am very glad I didn't. Steve found the issue, re-built the PC with a new hard drive very quickly allowing my wife to get back to work. We were kept well informed about the progress and what would be required to fix the problem and the bill at the end was extremely reasonable. Would definitely use again and would recommend to anyone in the Chichester area.

Customer Testimonials

Since contacting Bluefish Computers a few years ago, Steve has helped me in the most professional and sensitive way. Computers made me nervous! Steve’s individual tuition has been excellent and my confidence has really grown. At the same time Steve maintains both my husband’s and my computer and nothing is ever too much trouble. Without doubt, contacting Steve is the best IT decision anyone can make.


Steve Holcroft from Bluefish Computer Services gave me an absolutely brilliant service when I was recently suffering from windows 10 problems on my new laptop. The day before I had spent nearly a whole day in contact by chat line with Microsft Support and they had been unable to resolve the main issue. In desperate need of a solution I called Steve and he immediately looked at the problem and resolved it in about 20 minutes flat. As I said to him at the time it was a big credit to him that he had resolved a problem in 20 minutes which Microsofts own technical people could not resolve in many hours. Thanks Steve for the excellent service I am more than happy to recommend you to others.


Dear Steve
I just wanted to express my great appreciation for the help you gave us with regard to the Hotmail/Outlook problem this week. You sorted it out incredibly quickly, and I had already spent a great deal of time on it myself, as well as liaising with Microsoft Support. Thank you, and I would happily recommend you to friends for any IT support work they need.


Thanks Steve – everything working again as it should. I must thank you for the speed of service too; far better service than the IT department of the last company I worked for…


Steve, you are a legend. Seriously thank you. It’s bad enough giving the HMRC money but using their very non user friendly systems generally sends me over the edge. Thank you so much


Steve at Bluefish promptly repaired our PC after the screen became completely detached from the keyboard, (except for some wires), following a long drop onto concrete! Another time, our screen went completely white! – Both times we thought it was the end of the road for our PC. – He had it running again in no time! Less expensive than we thought; so, fast and cost effective! Pleasantly surprised


We would definitely recommend Bluefish. We picked them out of a search because their feedback was excellent. Our experience was similar. Steve is a reliable, helpful communicator. Prompt in his response, accurate in his judgement of the problem, very competetive and flexible in his pricing and knowledgeable about his trade. If your computer is “bust” and you live in the Chichester area look no further!


Steve at Bluefish Computers is efficient and reliable. He is friendly and approachable and tackles small and large projects with equal enthusiasm. Steve is able to talk to non-techies without using jargon and has been an enormous help as I develop my business. A big thank you as well for fixing laptop immediately over Easter Holidays.


My PC was infected with fake security software which blocked my internet access and kept making windows pop up which tried to sell me products. Stephen arrived and quickly identified the problem and cleaned the virus from the PC, he also advised me on some steps to take to prevent it happening again. Overall I was very impressed with the speed it was fixed and the cost which was very reasonable, many thanks!


Steve did a wonderful job recovering and recuperating an arthritic desktop PC and a very slow Mac. The diagnosis was swift and specific, and so was the estimate. Both jobs were done rapidly and to great satisfaction. Thanks for a great service.


Steve is brilliant!
My computer stopped working late one night, the next morning I was at BlueFish chatting with him and he had determined the issue. You can’t ask for better than that!
Although the computer couldn’t be repaired, Steve offered some great advice. He also did a super and speedy job of transferring the data onto a new laptop and backing it up for me.
I would definitely recommend Steve. He offers fab, friendly and reasonably priced computer repairs.
Thank you!
