Computer Shops You Can Trust

Whom do you trust to fix your computers?

We are convinced that there are lots of small to medium sized computer repair shops who are NOT out to take your money by doing needless or shoddy repairs. You can prove us right by adding the name of a computer shop that you trust to this list.  Just get in touch with us through the Contact button on the homepage and let us know who they are.  BUT….make sure that you actually have used their services and can give a personal testimonial of the work they do.  This is not a chance for companies to self-promote; and we will do our best to eliminate those as quickly as possible.

Dan's PC Solutions
January 31, 2018

Dan (and Amber) have provided us,with expert help for both home and office computers for a number of years. Honest; totally customer-service-oriented; very affordable; kind —just some of the adjectives we would use. What’s not to like??? Highly recommend doing business with them. We are more than satisfied! – AND now in May, 2018, Dan does it again. #Microsoft gets me mad (and unfunctional) and he fixes it, once again!)

Recommended by Foster Braun

October 21, 2017: Foster’s wife Ginny’s iPhone 6+ was damaged by water and the excellent and speedy service he received from the store on Woodward Ave. in Royal Oak, MI.  Chris Fronius was the assistant manager at that time and gave him excellent service.  Basically they were able to dry out the phone in a very short time AND retrieve all of his wife’s contacts etc. from the phone (something the AT&T shop down the way had not been able to do…although they did sell Foster an iPhone 7+!)

They fix everything from Drones to phones.  There are 5 Ubreakifix franchises in the Detroit area and one in Grand Rapids.  Yelp shows excellent customer satisfaction stats.

Merkle Computers

Recommended by Harry Brown of Port Huron.

Hi guys, I wanted to drop you a note about a computer business that has helped me since 2010, and he even does house calls!!! Now I’m a blind man, and use a talking computer, and cannot take this desktop computer anywhere. Rick Merkle, (the owner of Merkle Computers)…does all my computer work for me, virus removal, builds computers for me, installs hardware and software when I need it, put team viewer on my computer, and now, via the internet, he can connect to me, and fix things that way, as well! I highly recommend him.
