Was so impressed with this service. My Macbook Air was dead after stupidly spilling a glass of red wine onto it. After being told by my local shop that it would take 14-21 days I phoned CR Ltd and was told it would take 1-2 days. Not only that but my mac would be collected and dropped back for no extra charge other than the cost of the repair. I thought it was too good to be true and was worried that something wasn't right. I didn't need to worry - my dead laptop was delivered back to me the next day for the cost originally quoted and is working perfectly as if the wine incident had never happened. Couldn't have asked for more.

Really great service. Gave over my laptop details over the phone, received a text with the estimated cost for parts. Owing to the pandemic I was offered a drop off time for the same day. If the screen was in stock Lee said it would be repaired on the day. Lee also gave me all the info about how long it would be (roughly) if my screen type wasn't in stock. Lucky for me my screen type was in stock and it was repaired within the hour. Very reasonable price too. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you

This place is brilliant. I had a CPU problem which most places said was unfixable. So I thought I was down £300. I dropped my PC to Lee at 10:30am and had it back at home and fixed by 1:30pm the same day. And it cost me £60. Lee is a guy who knows what he is doing, charges a fair price and gets it done quickly. Don't make the mistake of going somewhere else.

Very good service, very happy with the result. They were able to repair a water damaged graphics card, a very challenging repair, for a very good price. They gave me an estimate without charge, and got back to me in good time once it had been completed.

Excellent, prompt and honest service by Lee. I knew there was a problem with the hard drive and thought there were also screen connection problems. Lee was honest and told me there was nothing wrong with the screen when tested. He replaced the hard drive in my HP Envy laptop within a couple of days getting it back to working order. Reasonable cost and delivered to me at home. What more could we ask for.

A month before my final submissions at university, my hard drive failed. I thought that I lost all my files. Lee replaced the faulty hard drive, recovered the files and upgraded my laptop in no time. Very professional service and experienced, skilled specialists. I highly recommend it!

Took my laptop to these guys at 4.30pm on a Monday afternoon as I had a number of sticky/faulty keys on my MacBook Pro. Lee diagnosed the problem immediately. The keyboard was cleaned, faulty keys replaced and the laptop delivered back to me at home at 9am the next morning. Can't recommend Lee and these guys enough.

Dropped my laptop on its end with charger attached, which rammed the charging jack into the case, also damaged end casing. 8 years old? Worth replacing or fixing? Being an i7, with SSD & touchscreen, nearest new replacement £700+. Got a very reasonable quote for repair - new jack was fitted, and almost invisible repair on the end casing; this came in at 1/10th of a new laptop, and was completed in a couple of days. I'm well happy with that! Thank you very much.

My laptop suffered from BSoD to the point where I couldn't installed windows. Tried to resolve it myself with new M.2 drive & RAM but did not solve the issue.Initial call made on Thursday, spoke to Linas. I told him what the problem was and what I've tried to resolve so far. Unable to diagnose over the phone so agree to bring the laptop to him the following day.Friday, called again before heading out and gave Linas an ETA. When I got to South Woodford station, the premises was fairly easy to find ( Assuming you got out at the correct side of the station). However, there was no one in there. Shortly after, Linas came in and greeted me. I repeated what I said on the phone again. I I left my laptop with him and he took my details on the system. Shortly after, I received an email to confirm to service request.Saturday Mid-day, I received a call from Linas. He told me he had finished the diagnostic on the laptop and return with good news and bad news. He explained the findings and suggest possible courses of action. He also gave me reasonable quotes of the repair depends on the option I choose.Initially I've ask Linas to replace the faulty part as I don't want to lose any performance of my laptop. However, I have changed my mind over the weekend and settle with a limited but functioning CPU.After using the Laptop for a couple of days. CPU doesn't seems to limit/affect the software I use.From my observasion, Linas was pofessional, knowledgable and friendly. They've definintely earned my recommendation.
