Our standard operating hours are from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday through Sunday. However, we understand that technical glitches don't always adhere to business hours.

In such instances, our goal is to provide temporary solutions to mitigate any immediate challenges you might be facing and then schedule a more thorough repair or service at the earliest convenience.

No matter how you choose to reach out, our aim is to process your request as quickly as possible, providing a confirmation and setting up an appointment at a time that best suits you.
5. What is the cost for your services?
When it comes to the cost of our services, transparency and fairness are our guiding principles. The final price for any job depends on a variety of factors, from the type of service you require to the complexity of the issue you're facing. Some straightforward tasks like routine software troubleshooting may be less expensive, whereas complex services like network setup or data recovery may be priced higher. To give you an accurate quote, we prefer to understand the specific needs and challenges you're experiencing, which can be achieved through a preliminary consultation. You can get this consultation through a simple phone call or by filling out a detailed form on our website. Based on this initial assessment, we can provide you with an estimate that reflects both the scope and the intricacy of the work involved. Rest assured, there are no hidden charges, and we aim to provide the most value for your investment.

Students who are on a budget can take advantage of special pricing designed to make tech support more affordable. Similarly, seniors can avail of discounts that make it easier to maintain their devices and stay connected with their loved ones. For businesses with multiple service requirements, we offer corporate packages that provide a more comprehensive solution at a discounted rate. These special packages can be customized to include a range of services, from regular maintenance to emergency support, thereby providing an all-in-one solution that caters to the unique needs of each organization. To learn more about these discounts and how to qualify for them, we encourage you to contact our customer service team for detailed information.
7. How long does it take to repair a computer?
The duration required to repair a computer can differ considerably, depending on the complexity and nature of the problem at hand. Simple issues such as updating software or removing unnecessary files usually take less than an hour. However, tasks like data recovery or network setups could take several hours or even span multiple sessions. At Geekmobile, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Once we diagnose the problem, we give you an estimated timeline for the repairs. We understand that in today's fast-paced environment, being without your computer for an extended period can be inconvenient. Therefore, we are committed to delivering a service that is both efficient and comprehensive. Our technicians use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and follow the latest industry practices to expedite the repair process without compromising on quality. Rest assured, you'll be informed at every stage of the repair, so you're never left wondering how much longer it will take.
8. Do you provide a warranty for your services?
Absolutely, we stand behind the work we do. We offer a 30-day warranty on all the services we provide, offering you peace of mind that you're receiving a quality service. The warranty starts from the date the service is completed and covers all the repairs and tasks performed during the service appointment. If for some reason the problem recurs within this 30-day window, our team is committed to resolving the issue at no additional charge. The warranty is a testament to the confidence we have in our technicians' expertise and the quality of the parts we use for hardware repairs. However, it's essential to read the terms and conditions specified in the service agreement, as there are some limitations to what the warranty covers. For instance, the warranty does not cover issues resulting from user error or the failure of parts not replaced by Geekmobile. We make these terms clear to ensure complete transparency with our clients.
Remote and On-Site Support
9. Can you assist with Mac as well as Windows systems?
Certainly! At Geekmobile, our technicians have broad expertise across both Mac and Windows operating systems. We understand that each platform comes with its set of challenges and strengths. Whether it's troubleshooting the spinning wheel of death on a Mac or resolving a Blue Screen of Death on a Windows machine, we've got the skills and experience to handle it. Our staff undergoes regular training and stays up-to-date with the latest updates and features from both Apple and Microsoft. This continued learning ensures that we can solve a range of issues, from older models to the latest releases. So regardless of your computing environment, you can trust Geekmobile to deliver a solution that's tailor-made for your system.
10. How does remote support work?
Remote support is an effective way of resolving issues without the need for a technician to be physically present. This form of support is increasingly popular, especially for software-related issues. Here's how it works: After scheduling a remote support session, our technician will guide you through establishing a secure connection between your device and our support system. Using advanced diagnostic tools, the technician can then identify and resolve the issue, as if they were sitting right next to you. This service is not only convenient but also expedient, allowing for real-time troubleshooting that can often resolve issues in a single session. Our remote support software complies with the highest security standards to ensure that your data remains confidential and secure throughout the process. Remote support is an excellent option for those who need quick fixes and are comfortable with a technician accessing their machine virtually.
Payment and Billing
11. What payment methods do you accept?
Geekmobile aims to make the payment process as simple and straightforward as possible. We offer a range of payment options to suit your needs. Whether you prefer to pay by cash, credit card, or bank transfer, we've got you covered. All payments are processed securely, adhering to the highest industry standards for data protection and privacy. To make the experience even more convenient, we collect payment only after the successful completion of the service, ensuring that you are satisfied with the work done. And in the case of large projects that may span several days or require multiple sessions, we offer the option of splitting the payment, so you're not burdened with a one-time hefty charge. Each of these payment methods is designed to provide you with the most convenient and secure experience possible.
12. Will I receive an invoice for my service?
Absolutely, transparency is one of our core values. Once a service is completed, you will receive a detailed invoice outlining every aspect of the job. This invoice will include specifics such as the type of service performed, any hardware or software that was installed, and the total cost broken down by labor and parts. It serves as an official record of the transaction and can be useful for warranty claims, tax purposes, or simply for your personal records. Our invoicing process is digital, reducing the need for paper and making it easier for you to store and retrieve invoices when needed. You'll typically receive this invoice via email, although a printed copy can be provided upon request.
