I dreaded trying to get my computer fixed because I knew it would cost almost as much as a new machine and take me offline for weeks. Imagine my surprise when Kyle responded to my thumbtack inquiry within minutes, made a house call within a couple of hours, and had my computer repaired by lunch time! He also did a system upgrade from the computer manufacturer while he was at it. The cost was under $90, he guarantees his work, and I never had to leave home. Further, hiring a local independent contractor fits with my ethic to support local businesses. I couldn't be more pleased with Kyle's service. Thanks, Kyle and thanks, thumbtack!
