Pricing & FAQ


We charge by the hour. Due to each case being different we quote per job basis. We are happy to help fill in the time that is left with extras. See bellow.

Perform a system health check.
Optimise startup and shutdown.
Clean up Quick Launch and the taskbar.
Speed up your browser.
Check for and remove spyware, viruses, and malware.
Make sure your operating system is up to date.
Diagnose performance problems.
Remove dust from inside the computer because it could be interfering with the hardware.
Perform system maintenance to make it run more efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you charge a one-hour minimum?
By having a one-hour minimum, we can send a Nerd to your home or office without charging for travel time. We provide a level of service unmatched by any competitor, and all work is backed by our Nerds Promise and Guarantee.

Is there a same-day service charge?
In short, NO. We firmly belive if we can come do ur job today then we will be the with a smile and help you with your problem. We don’t belive we should charge extra for customer service.

What happens if it takes longer than an hour?
Most repairs can be solved in the first hour. However, if the technician expects that it will take longer, he or she will usually know within the first 15 minutes. The technician will give you options, and you can decide how you want to proceed.

What happens if the repair takes less than an hour?
Since most repairs are completed in under an hour, we encourage our customers to make the most of any extra time. Please see the checklist above for ideas about the kind of services your technician can perform with any extra time.

What if my computer is broken and it can’t be fixed?
Sometimes, if there is serious damage to your computer, it is a better investment to buy a new one than to pay for a repair. If we find that’s the case, you can utilise the technician’s time to back up your data and then have the technician come back to transfer it to a new computer and help you set it up instead.

What happens if I am not happy with the service?
Making your Technology work is our priority, and we are always making sure that our Nerds performance is up to our high levels of customer service. If you are ever not 100% satisfied, please get in touch with us so we may resolve the problem, 02 4302 1530!
