Richard, the driving force behind Computer Origins has been my "go to" computer geek for about 6 years now. He patiently puts techno-babble into plain English that even a "newbie baby boomer" can understand. His integrity is impeccable, time keeping is precise & customer service skills are something most other business owners should copy & use in their own businesses. His shop is neat & tidy & organised and Richard himself is truly one of life's gentlemen. We correspond on technical matters at least once a week on average. Make Computer Origins part of your "go to" team!!

I would just like to thank you for all the help given by yourself in sorting the problem with our computer. The service received was way above the normal service I would have expected to receive. You kept me updated with the repair and offered very good advice, always friendly, nothing was to much trouble even when there was no profit in it for yourself. I have dealt with numerous computer shops in the past and never have I received such an excellent service before. I would recommend your shop without hesitation to anyone. I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.
Dean Hewitt
Richard is OUTSTANDING in his dedication to customer service. He seeks out and identifies every technical ‘hitch’, fixes it and isn’t satisfied until the computer is fully operational and…more importantly user-friendly!

We are thrilled to have found another small Business such as ourselves who are not just Driven by Financial success; it is about the Customer Focus. We have already referred other Client’s to Richard as we know they will be looked after.

Just wanted to let you know that my computer hasn't missed a beat since I picked it up on Monday and I'm very happy about that. I appreciate the great service you provide and the very reasonable fees charged. I was struck by your code of ethics in working to keep the costs down and recommending the most cost effective options even where there was no profit in it for you. Many thanks for your assistance.

Thanks for the work you did on my crashed computer, a couple of weeks ago. For "feedback"... I appreciated the time you spent in listening and noting my list of problems, and then after the service, explaining what you had done and checking to see if I was happy! My computer now runs much better and quicker! I recommend your business to my classes - you were patient and honest about the viability and cost effectiveness of enhancing an older computer!

I am writing to say a big thank you for the recent installation of the network / backup system and WIFI system for our NBN Satellite. It has been an ongoing issue to have full coverage of the NBN satellite connection on our farm, in both the work areas (pack-house, office, despatch areas) and to also have the good access to WIFI internet in our residence. Your design, supply and installation of the WIFI and system network is outstanding and I am very appreciative of the time saving aspects of the full coverage. I have the confidence that my staff and I are using the same, and correct version of orders and documents, as well as the added bonus of being able to stream a show or movie at the end of a long day! I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a well designed solution to a rather complex and messy problem.

As a business person who is constantly working on computers, I need to know I have a reliable service person behind me who can repair or attend to my computer problems. I have been very fortunate to have found Richard who has been attending to my computer problems and needs just under the last 3 years and not only found him excellent at what he does, but extremely reliable and helpful if you need advice regarding computers, software, Programs etc. I would certainly recommend Richard to any person for computer repair related services.

Running a business from home, we obviously have no IT department. Richard at Computer Origins is a great foundation of information with all our computer needs. He’s been a fantastic source of knowledge for integrating our business and personal computer needs as well as solving any problems that come up along the way and his pricing is always fair and reasonable. People often talk to us about their computer issues and we have no hesitation in sending them to Richard.

Jan and I would like to extend our grateful thanks to you for your recent assistance with our computer system. Your considerate and patient approach was very much appreciated as we all know that dealing with folk of our demographic can be a challenge! The computers are operating well, all the systems you put in place are also operating well and your after sales service has been prompt, courteous and respectful. We cannot thank you enough for making this transition for both our businesses, easy and stress free. We will both recommend you and your business very highly to anyone in need of assistance and you can be assured of our ongoing patronage.

Computer Origins has given me up to the minute advice with good old-fashioned service. It’s nice to walk into a computer shop where you feel welcomed and listened to attentively, not to feel as though you’re intruding in their personal domain. Richard is very knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble for him even though my purchases have not been big in dollar terms, I felt like a valued customer. Keep up the good work!

Donald has had an ongoing working relationship with Richard for the past year, the work was always “computers”. Laptops and Desktops have been sick and at deaths door when Richard is brought in to lay healing hands and facilitate recovery. No task is too big or small for Richard who maintains an unflappable composure. Clever thinking, experience and systematic dissection of the problem set wins the day. I enjoy sharing my computer world with Richard and Computer Origins staff. Personal attention and care to detail is witnessed in abundance. I look forward to extending this warm relationship into the future.

I would like to let you know how much I appreciated the assistance that you recently gave me in getting my computer back up and running again after "Ransom Ware" managed to find it's way on to my computer and destroy all my data. All I could say was thank goodness to the backup system that you recently installed on my computer it was a life saver. Richard, thanks for recommending this system and to anyone that maybe thinking of it, it is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
Gail Edney
I thought I would let you know that I received a call from our friend Howard yesterday. He called to say thanks to us for recommending you. It appears that you had installed his new computer the day before and he was “overjoyed”. Not only at what he’s got, but how the changeover had all gone. The fact that he was able to utilise his existing printer etc was a bonus for him. I could go on but I think you will get the message. I am pleased not because I recommended you and Computer Origins as, I knew I was promoting the tried and tested. I know he was extremely worried about having to upgrade his system, you made the transition easy for him, and I thank you for that. I wish you and Computer Origins all the best for the future. I have always recommended you and Computer Origins since our first meeting back in 2012 and I will continue to do so.

Thank you, Richard for the work you performed on our laptop computer when you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and replaced the keyboard. Microsoft had advised that they would no longer support Windows 7 after January 2020. There were suggestions that we would need a new computer to accommodate Windows 10 and since keys on our existing computer were not working we thought it was certain that we would be up for the cost of a new computer. In addition we were concerned about the transfer of our programs and data. Through your great work, Richard we did not have to buy a new computer and we now have Windows 10, our keyboard works perfectly and you managed to ensure that we lost no programs or data in the process. In addition our old computer is working faster than we can ever remember which gives us so much more pleasure in using the machine. And your price for all of this work was more than reasonable. Your availability to solve our computer problems is a great comfort to us and we look forward to a long association with you. In appreciation.
