Introduction: People call me when everything has gone wrong and they are in a panic, the loss of data can affect the lives of customers in many ways. I get a rewarding feeling every time I get to help those in need. When plan A has gone out the window is time for plan B. What I like about my work is to get to interact with many types of people and companies, each customer is a new way to learn something new.

Computer Repair

What struck me about Sam the moment I met him was how honest he was. Computer technology and the field of tech repairs in general is a field in which it is easy to get ripped off—Sam gave me a very fair deal and delivered. My computer is working MUCH better than it was before. I highly recommend Sam!

Sam is awesome! I feel I got very lucky in choosing him. From day one, he was super-responsive, very knowledgeable, and such a nice guy. He spent a good deal of time with me on the phone, explaining prospective diagnoses and costs. Sam was able to come and pick up the computer within the hour! I could tell immediately, and increasingly so through our correspondence, that he’s extremely knowledgeable. A true expert. He really helped me to understand how to get the best value and performance out of my repair situation. To top that off, he was extremely willing to talk computers and give me some advice on a another machine I was considering buying. I sincerely appreciated that, and ended up finding a killer deal based upon his technical recommendations! Sam went above and beyond to get me the best deal and the best possible outcome. Great guy, great value! Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of working with Sam this past week. He was able to fix my dropped laptop, which stopped working. The repair was done in a timely manner which included ordering a part. I have no hesitation in recommending Sam for your computer repairs. Sandy

Sam contacted me back within 5 minutes of requesting help with my OS. He picked up my computer within the hour and set realistic expectations for the timeline and price, very transparent. He called me several times while he had my computer to update me on his progress and to ask how he should proceed. Very professional, very prompt and transparent in his business. I will keep his information handy, just in case I get into trouble with my OS going forward.

Computer Repair

I had an issue regarding my desktop once I shipped it from my home country to the USA. Once I shipped it over it just didn't work / turn on I realized that I was not able to fix my computer and just had to reach out to get assistance. I found Sam on thumbtack and he responded extremely quickly. I met Sam and handed him my desktop and over the course of a few weeks we really tried to find the problem. In the end the desktop did not make it due to internal problems and was short circuited by the power supply but Sam did everything he could to fix the computer and even put some of his own assets on the line to really help me out. In addition, he refuses any payment from me to him since in the end of the product wasn't fixed. All in all I highly recommend Sam and he really has showed me how much effort he puts into his work.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It depends on the job at hand for data recovery I have a range from $300 to $800 for easy to complex issues as long as I don't to physically open a drive. If platters or heads need to be replaced then it can run from $1800 to $2000. For computer repairs and other types of jobs, I charge by the hour $95 minimum of 2 hours.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I get a phone call from the customer explaining the problem, based on that I will give an estimate. Then the customers and I will meet at their place or at a public place.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Self-taught 10 years on the job recovering data from pretty much anything that can hold data. I like to hack things to make them do what I need.
