See what some of our past customers have to say..

OK so I am a technophobe! Just give me a computer that works and I can do my emails and surf the net! Rent a Nerd came to the rescue. Helped me buy a computer, set it up and when I moved house even reconnected me.

REALLY helpful and also made things simple. Would recommend Chief Nerd anytime. Sarah

I have used Rent A Nerd on many occasions, most recently to help me setup a new computer system to run my business from home. Nick from Rent A Nerd setup my new email, configured my new laptop and home network along with some cloud storage.

Couldn’t be happier with the service. Amanda

Director, Lovett Consulting

Initially I contacted Rent a Nerd for computer repairs several years ago. I found Nick (the Owner) to be very professional and full of useful information.

I now use Rent a Nerd for all of my IT issues, he has done a range of things from recover information from hard drives to even setting up home network, which streams movies onto to my smart tv!

I would highly recommend Rent a Nerd for any of your IT problems. Ryan
