About us - Woolrych Computer Services Ltd

We specialise in providing personal service, with reliable after sales care.

Established in 1998 Woolrych Computer Services Ltd is now a well established computer sales and consultancy business, backed by over 30 years of experience in IT.  In April 2003 we became a Limited Liability Company.

If you are looking to upgrade, replace or purchase new computer equipment and would like sensible advice tailored to your needs then we can help you. Advice is free and we will be happy to quote for your needs. We build PC's to your specification from the best quality components. Noel All too often sales staff tend to confuse their customers with computerspeak, our aim is to de-mystify computers and talk plain English, we are not out to baffle you with science, just to give you unbiased advice before you decide what to purchase. Everybody's needs are different. Solutions do not come off the production line.
After the initial excitement of the new purchase, clients are often left on their own to struggle with unfamiliar electronics or they feel confused by the complexities of new programs. At WCS we offer you full support.
Delivery and installation of your computer are part of our service. We can supply just about anything in the computer line from networks to printers, modems, scanners, TV cards, digital cameras, software etc..

We recognise that most people want a personal service. To this end we are geared up towards dealing with your problems at home or in the office at prices you can afford. We will, wherever possible, come out to you at your home or place of work.

All of us, even the most experienced, need to update our skills as new equipment and new software comes on line and the Internet gets more and more complex. We offer a personal tuition service. We give you the opportunity to acquire the skills you need in a non-threatening way, on your PC, at your home. You learn at your pace not the rest of the class! Years of teaching experience has shown us that people learn better on an individual learning programme.
For small business users working from home, we offer a computer and network installation service, maintenance of computer equipment and peripherals (printer, fax machines - anything connected to a PC), website design and internet connection.

We offer onsite as well as workshop repair and maintenance facilities.
Whatever your needs or problems - get in touch with us.

Prices and specifications are subject to change on a regular basis because of the volatile nature of the PC market.

If you are not sure what the latest prices are please ask, phone or e-mail for advice.

In such a case, our NO-FIX-NO-FEE policy means that there will be nothing to pay at all.

Is there a callout fee to pay?
No. We do not charge a callout fee of any kind.

Do you carry out workshop repairs?
Yes. We often find that it is better to effect repairs to some systems in our workshop. This can often be completed quicker than visiting your premises. We are happy to advise you on the best course of action.
Workshop charges are £30.00 inc VAT per hour with a minimum charge of £20.00 inc VAT

Do you give telephone support?
Yes. Quite often we can sort out problems over the phone. If you still have internet connection we can take control of your PC (with your permission) to try to resolve the problem. This is charged for through PayPal at £30 per hour inc VAT. (you do not need a PayPal Account). However, do not insult us by expecting us to fix your computer over the phone for nothing!

Do you charge for travelling time?
No and Yes. Within the Devizes area we do not charge for travelling or if the engineer happens to be in your area. However, we do charge for travelling time for distances over 15 miles from Devizes. This will vary depending on the distance from Devizes (or from where the engineer is located). Travelling time is charged at £20.00 plus VAT per hour. Please ask.

What is your response time?
That will vary depending on the day of the week and how much other commitments impact on response time.  Generally I should be able to get back to you the same day.  Email is the best means of contact. 

Is your work guaranteed?
Yes. Our work is fully guaranteed. All components are supplied new (unless specified otherwise) and covered by a full twelve months parts and labour warranty. Fixes are guaranteed for one month, provided that there have not been any changes, updates or downloads made to the equipment since our fix that could have caused the problem to reoccur. In simple terms - you mess with it, its your fault! And yes we can tell what you did.

Can I limit the job to one hours' work?
Yes. You can choose to limit the booking to one hour and the engineer will do his very best to complete the work within the agreed time. However, if in the opinion of the engineer the work will take longer and you choose not to have the work done, then a charge is made for the time used so far. But don't blaime us if it still doesn't work - that was your choice!!

If the repair takes only forty minutes, will I have to pay for a full hour?
Yes. Our minimum on site charging period is one hour.
Following the initial hour, any additional time is charged in blocks of 30 minutes.

What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept payment by cash, debit or credit cards, cheque, BACS and PayPal. Payment is due on completion of the work unless specified by prior agreement (account customers only). Please don't ask for credit, banks do that, we fix computers.

For some 25 years Woolrych Computer Services has been providing a comprehensive service providing personal service to the home and small business user (& people who work from home). I have now reached that time where I feel that advancing age means that I need to do less.  Therefor, I have taken the decision to retire.  I have switched to focus from fixing things to giving advice.  The direction of the business is now as a Consultant in IT & CCTV.

For those people who don't read instructions/information. 
I have retired from IT, I don't fix computers any more.

I am well placed to give advice on what to buy and how to install it or can recommend someone who can on your behalf.

With continuing uncertainly in working practices I can advise on how to best implement working from home and hybrid working so that best use can be made of equipment and flexible staffing.

I have been involved with CCTV and security for over 50 years; advising, installing and providing evidence. Experience has shown that CCTV has many benefits, providing peace of mind and security.  Poorly sited and cheap equipment are worse than useless.  However, it doesn't need to cost the earth.  Talk to us first, we give advice!
