Just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. As a Christmas present anyone who needs computer repair service in our green or yellow service area I'm discounting all services 20% until the end of this year. (As long as you schedule an appointment before the end of the year I'll honor the 20% even if you actual appointment date is after the new year.) I know a lot of folks will be getting new computers and need help setting up their new computer, transferring documents and pictures from their old computer, connecting the computer to the internet, and making sure it's updated and secured. Also it would be a good time to mention we support Apple computers, so if you're moving from a PC to a Mac or vice versus JRD Tech Computer Repair can help with the change as well.
I just wanted to thank everyone who voted for JRD Tech in the Asbury Park Reader's Choice.
We strive to provide the absolute best computer repair service in the county at a fair and reasonable rate. Thank you for choosing JRD Tech Computer Repair Service.
Occasionally I'll have someone ask about my pricing because they'll read an ad on Craigslist from someone offering to repair their computer for $20-$40 flat rate. My response would be, if you don't care about your computer or the information on it then by all means use the guy. Almost 100% of the time techs offering services at extremely low cost are 1. very inexperienced. 2. Running an illegal business by paying no taxes. 3. When they foul up your computer good luck getting them to refund your money or come back to fix the problem. 4. They are usually thieves, at most I go on 4 appointments per day simply with travel, lunch break, and varying time it takes to fix each computer 4 appointments is the max and it's usually 2-3 appointments per day.. So ask yourself. someone charging $20 to fix a computer, will make at max $80.00 gross, not including business expenses and fuel costs...how can that be? Who can live on $40-$60 net a day? Only answer I can come up with is their selling your personal information or canvassing your home or maybe their just bad at business in which case do you want them fixing your computer?
At JRD Tech I have over 10yrs experience working on all types of computer, we are a legitimate business, and you can get a hold of me 24/7 via phone, e-mail, or txt. We also have a great 45-day guarantee covering most our repairs. As for our rates, we are priced very fair and competitive, among experienced and legitimate businesses JRD Tech is on the lower end to the scale. For example an on-site call from Geek Squad will cost you $299.00 for residential. An on-site call from JRD Tech starts at $55/hr and maxes out at 3/hrs. Even in our Red Zone service area which costs more do to length of travel time our max cost is still below $299.00 ($245 for 3hrs). I don't mean to brag (actually I do) but JRD Tech provides much better service and knowledge to fix you computer problems then a $10/hr tech sent out by a big box store computer repair company like Geek Squad or Staples.
Finally, I would like to touch on 'A la carte' pricing, this is where you pay to have a specific service done, so it would cost for example $60 to diagnosis the computer, then $99 to remove a virus, then $80 to tune up the computer, etc, etc, etc. I believe in total computer repair. If you call JRD Tech I'm going fix your computer completely, not just one problem, because most often there are multiple issues that prevent a computer from performing optimally.
JRD Tech is my business and I care about it deeply, I repair each computer as if it were my own. If you want your computer fixed and running it's best for a fair price, give JRD Tech a call.
I've notice that Staples is advertising FREE COMPUTER TUNE-UP in their stores and that's all well and good but you should know a few things:
1. JRD Tech always performs a Free tune-up with every computer repair. IMO it's simply a good procedure and it takes all of 10 minutes to do.
2. Why does Staples offer this service for free?
To get your computer so they can tell you what's really wrong with it and get you to pay to fix it. Honestly, a computer Tune-Up isn't going to magically make a sluggish computer all of a sudden become fast again. Yes, it will help but usually there is an underlying problem that needs to be addressed that has nothing to do with doing the Tune-Up. So once they have your computer for the free tune-up and they say "Well we did the Tune-up, but it's still a bit slow would you use to diagnosis it for you?" Diagnosis is $69.99 and once they find the issue you have to pay for them to correct the issue. So that Free Tune-Up turns into a $150-$200 repair.
3. If it's so easy, can I do it myself?
You sure can, I've created a quick tutorial on how to do a fast computer repair tune-up. And if your computer is still slow after give us a call 609-385-3982. Our rates are lower then any Big Box computer store and we come to onsite to your home. No disconnecting your computer. If you want to drop your computer off we offer that service too for even less.
