Yes folks it’s THAT time of year once again and we’re off to our first festival of summer this weekend to Stone Valley Festival in Stanhope. We’ll be leaving tomorrow morning and we’ll be home on Sunday afternoon so apologies if you need Andy tomorrow but we’ll be away and will catch up on Monday. Have a lovely weekend 🙂
Fedex wasn’t for me, they’re like 30 years behind everyone else lol. I’m with Right Click Fix full time for now but am looking for part time work, maybe a postman or technician for a large organisation fixing their computers and keeping things going…
Keep me busy
After 11 years of having my business email addy plastered all over the net and getting bombarded with daily spam after its been sold and abused I’ve decided to make a new one! firstname.lastname@example.org is the new one so I’ll be moving over to that as of today. I’ll keep the old one live until it phases out over the year.
No, I’ve not joined the dance group I’m just wearing in my new FEDEX uniform 🙂 Yes I’m back on the road to subsidise the ever dwindling call outs and computer repairs and surviving hard times in the computer industry!
Computer shops are closing all around us but we’re geared up to survive and have for 11 years on August 1st this year but I need to start subsidising Right Click Fix if I’m to keep it on, otherwise I’ll close it and get a full time job driving or pro geek somewhere that can afford me 😉
Anyway, I’ll always be here for you and that’s a promise 🙂
I’ve just set up a “live chat” system on the site in order to try and combat the phone situation. I run a mobile computer repair business and Janet’s a cleaner with her “Kleen4U” business, so we’re both on the go most of the time but when I’m working or at home the office/workshop PC is always on so I can be around to answer questions and give quotes etc.
It seems to be the ‘in thing’ at the moment so I’ll give it a go. . .
Oh, do be warned it takes you’re email address and takes you’re IP address 😉
We seem to be getting more and more people ringing our land line on mobiles and leaving voicemail asking us to call them back with prices and information on whether or not we can do a job or not, how much it would be and how long it will take and even for advice on repairs and problems.
We’re very helpful and considerate but not only do we not have time to ring people up at our cost (mobile network charges) from our land line but we feel its damn cheeky to expect a business to ring you at their cost! Please ring the mobile and speak to Janet on 07821055566 or leave a message and we’ll ring you back.
On the land line just ring back and see if Andy is in or maybe Janet after 3pm (ish). Its a funny one because we’re both in and out a lot its hard to catch us I know but we simply can’t afford to ring people at our cost!
Andy is about to move all of his web-sites to a new hosting service so the sites will go off at some point during the move. It’s nothing to worry about its just a necessary thing to do and all will be well. Sorry for the inconvenience!
UPDATE: April 9th 2018 and the Right Click Fix is now live and working on the new hosting service. Please feel free to contact us if you find any errors and/or something not working…
We’ve changed our car seeing as the engine on the old Mondeo Right Click Fix car is dodgy. We now have a red Peugeot estate car just so you know it’s me turning up at you’re door. I won’t be covering it in signage as I don’t think its necessary as we tow the caravan a lot now too and can disappear without anyone knowing lol 😉
Andy has taken on a full time driving job for 2018 delivering parcels after doing it over Christmas and enjoying it. The truth is the computer industry is changing. Too many computers are simply destroyed rather than repaired and it’s just too easy to get internet help and advice via YouTube, Facebook groups and forums etc. So many younger people are trying to get into the industry that it’s saturated with “whiz kids” who know it all from the internet.
We’ve had a lot of calls from people lately telling us they’ve looked all over the net and can’t fix it themselves so turned to Andy to fix it and this is what’s doing the damage!
For the foreseeable future Andy will run Right Click Fix on a part-time basis with less hardware problems taken in and call out jobs on weekends or evenings after work. We will still take computers in at home/office as usual but not for hardware repairs unless people can wait.
Andy needs to start thinking of himself and the family instead of waiting for the phone to ring which has been less and less over the past two years. We’ll always be here for you, just be a little more patient 🙂
Andy has taken on a full time driving job until or just after Christmas seeing as the business seems to be flagging right now and not a lot is happening. Andy is available for call outs on a Saturday and maybe Sundays during this time and if he gets finished early enough he may go out on an evening but you’re always welcome to bring the problem to us and Andy will work on evenings.
(the image has been quickly edited for legal reasons) NEVER be stuck! If we can’t get you fixed we’ll recommend someone who can that we trust!
