Customer Testimonials

Called Ian in as my computer was not working properly due to a nearby BT pole being hit by a lightening strike which caused a power surge on the telephone line servicing my computer. Ian arrived within a couple of hours and quickly diagnosed the problem by fitting a new part to my computer. To say this man is very good at his job would be an understatement. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to any one who has computer related problems.

I have used Ian now for a few months with regards to different aspects of computing and have found him to be a very honest, trustworthy guy with an amazing knowledge of computing technicalities.
He is very punctual and always delivers on time.
I would highly recommend / have recommended MRA Consultants to colleagues, friends and family, and they are all of the same opinion.
There is nothing this guy doesn't know when it comes to computing.
Second to non service!

The work was to restore my computer to enable it to function. The tiles had vanished from the apps start menu. There was no restore function to enable restore to be back dated. The work was undertaken in a very professional; manner with explanation at every stage of the work.

Ian's service was excellent. I had problems with my e-mail and Ian also downloaded Windows 10 for me. He went the extra mile to make sure my problems got sorted out. I will certainly recommend him to friends and colleagues.

Ian did a first rate job, explaining what the problem was as he went along. Clearly, you can't beat experience. I thought that my pc had keeled over and died--I was getting no life out of it--but he found the source of the problem and methodically and patiently brought it back to life. His pricing is very reasonable. I would recommend this company to anybody.

Called out at short notice arrived on time, installed application needed and gave my pc a health check. Very efficient and very knowledgeable. Took the time to explain things throughout in easy to understand terms. Very friendly, professional and charges were more than reasonable for the service provided. Would highly recommend.

Ian is a delight and a joy. Always calm and relaxed. He did a wonderful job bringing my computer to life. Ian persists until the job is done and is never phased. He's a delight to have around. You simply won't get better support than this wonderful man.

Ian came to find out why my PC was getting the dreaded blue screen of death and not only found various problems which may have caused it and eliminated them, but also uninstalled a lot of rubbish and replaced it with useful stuff. He was a mine of information and knows more about computers than anyone I know and had an answer to all my questions even the daft ones. He's a top bloke too. Thanks Ian.
