Customer Testimonials

Helpful, friendly, easy to work with and a very fast response - what more can you want. Diagnosed a problem with my Mac within an hour via email. I took it in the next day and it was sorted within 24hrs. Top service, thank you!


I was looking for a reliable repair shop for my Sheila's Lenovo laptop. Facebook recommendations brought me to Computer Buddies. Excellent service and communication. Rapid repair and got the thing up and running again asap. Special thanks to Ben! Recommended. Thanks guys!


Simply the best,fantastic customer service and great knowledge ,don’t know how we would of managed without all bens help.
Would highly recommend.


Amazing service, fixed my MacBook Pro in a matter of hours. Up front, trustworthy and friendly service. So happy to have found an independent business so close to home that I can go to when I need help!


Both myself and my husband have had our laptops fixed here. Found them quick and good value. Always give you options about what to do and a realistic price for the work before they begin. I definitely recommend.


Superb service. I dropped off my laptop with a broken screen and collected it next day. No hassles, extremely professional. Would recommend to anyone with a pc problem.


A glowing reason for using independent shops. They fixed my blue-screened dead laptop full of irreplaceable data within a matter of hours at a very modest rate. Even re-installed an expired Microsoft Office as an added bonus. PC World quoted an extra £170 and a 14 day turnaround! Very friendly and professional, would 100% recommend Computer Buddies to anyone.


Sorted out my laptop problems in just a few hours. Very friendly service and reasonably priced.


I'm a computer illiterate 63 yr old who decided to update his old computer and bought a all singing all dancing new one with Windows 10.
Two months later with so many faults on it I went to computer buddies in Charles Street Hoole. Left it with them for two hours and when I picked it up they took the trouble to show me how to navigate my way around . So impressed with the service and value for money. 6/5 star rating. No hesitation in recommending these guys


Once again Computer Buddies came to the rescue. Major issues with Wifi dropping out and problems with the USB ports on the laptop. Peter tried remotely and thought it had been solved but the problem persisted once he had left the remote connection. Usual thing, no problem when he was connected but once it was just me and this cyber petulant child then things went wrong again. Dropped the laptop off at the shop at mid day and had a text message the following morning to say it was fixed.
It seems there was a problem with the WiFi card and a conflict with another programme.
Don't care whether its Ben or Peter that deals with your problem, but I can guarantee that it will be fixed,
Can't recommend them enough.


Took my broken, 5 year old Macbook pro in for repair. Ben rang me back to say it was an Apple issue and I should make an appointment at an Apple store, which I did. As I don't know anything about computers he could have just repaired it and charged me £100's of pounds, but he was honest and even gave me rintouts of my problem to show Apple. He wouldn't accept any payment for his time and effort. What a genuinely pleasant guy! I'll be back with all my computer problems from now on.


My desktop computer catastrophically broke last month, and I had no idea what happened to it. I took it into Computer Buddies on Friday under their "no fix, no fee" guarantee.

They identified the power supply unit has failed. They have me clear and transparent costs. I asked them to source a particular make, and to upgrade the unit to a higher wattage. They were really flexible.

The whole replacement was completed by the Monday. Great service, will definitely use again!


Lovely genuine people who have great knowledge and care about their customers. I will definitely go again if need to, thanks for all your help


I had a problem with my Account in windows 10 and all my personal information was removed. It was fixed within 24 hours. I am delighted with the service I received and I will definitely be recommending them to my friends.


Excellent service. Helpful and knowledgeable staff sourced and replaced an awkward laptop CPU fan with a bad bearing at a reasonable price in good time, despite having to source the new part. Had an issue with the fan 7 months later (at no fault of Computer Buddies) that was resolved within 24 hours. Would highly recommend.
