Jim Hunter has solved a number of problems my computer has encountered over a few years - always with a pleasant attitude - haven't managed to set him anything too difficult (yet) including most recent visit to correct some details appearing on entering my email which turned out to be in Ukranian!! Some achievement! Can't say better than that.

We would like to thank Jim for his very professional approach to our problem.

This is the second time I have called on JIm's service. He has always been very prompt and supportive as I don't have a huge knowledge of computers. I have been really impressed with the service as it has proved to be really good value for money as my relatively oldcomputer is still going strong and fully updated now. Jim has a really good sense of humour and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

My PC suffered a bad virus and my own attempts to clear the problems were unsuccessful. It would appear that the system had been corrupted. Several attempts to rectify the problems of installing new programs proved ineffective so your engineer had no option but to carry out a full recovery. his expertise and assistance has resulted in my PC being as good as new.

I am not much of an IT person and was a bit apprehensive before Jim arrived but he put me at ease quickly, listened to the problems I had and started on the computer(s) and had things sorted out pretty smartishly. He has a great sense of humour and it sounds crazy but I actually enjoyed the visit ! (not something I can say I have ever said before about a computer engineer? ) I intend passing the word around to my friends when they need a good engineer.

The engineer answered the telephone promptly, was very courteous and quickly arranged an appointment. He turned up on time, presented a friendly appearance. He identified the problem, which was one that could not be dealt with on site. He took the computer away and returned it next day in good working order.

All said Mr Hunter provided excellent service and I have recommended him to a friend.

Jim Hunter was very helpful and showed great patience, considering we were pensioners who were lacking confidence with computer technology. He tailored his help to ensure we would have all necessary programs at our disposal after clearing out our hard drive of accumulated junk. After solving our problems he took time to explain how to ensure we did not run into similar problems. It was a very positive experience. We would recommend to friends.

5 out of 5 Stars

A very prompt and efficient visit. Jim discussed the issues with us and explained what work was required - a quote was then given before the work was completed.

Jim Hunter of PcPal Edinburgh responded to my call very promptly and was hands on the Laptop with 4 hours. His knowledge was outstanding and gave me reassurance that he would have it fixed fairly promptly. He kept me informed whilst dealing with a multitude of viruses that had gained access to my lap top he took the laptop away to work on it at night and low and behold the next day brought it back good as gold;with a new anti virus software package on board that ticks all the boxes. Fantastic !!! highly recommended

Mr Hunter proved to be a most helpful and cooperative and patient engineer. However, for someone such as myself who has limited computer knowledge, it would be helpful for the future if things could be explained in layman's language !

I was almost at the point of throwing the PC out of the window I was so frustrated with it! Jim arrived the day I phoned him and arranged a back up visit when it couldn't be sorted immediately. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I had several issues, not all of which were apparent at the outset. No way I could have sorted this on my own but PC Pal worked through them all and helped explain what was happening and what I needed to do.I am relieved and pleased with the end result.

Mr Hunter resolved our long running PC problems both quickly and successfully, also being able to explain in user friendly terms (to a non-IT friendly person!) what had happened and what to do going forward to ensure effective PC use. All this was carried out in an extremely professional but also friendly manner. A great job well done. I will definitely be using Mr Hunter going forward for any of my PC queries.

Jim had to work on a very "dead" laptop that didn't want to show an obvious solution but got me up and running in the end,much to my relief and delight! He also took time to explain a few things that could help tidy up my computer.

Jim Hunter could not have been more helpful. He came almost immediately and was extremely patient in solving what was obviously a difficult and at times frustrating problem. I am very grateful.

Have to say the helpfulness and service of the engineer was fantastic. He got our PC back to "normal", upgraded it and, given the time he was here, at great value for money.
Would certainly recommend to anybody looking for help with their computer problems!

This is the first time I have had someone look at my laptop and I must say that the service was way beyond excellent. Jim is a very nice, and pleasant guy and took the time to explain things along the way which was just great.I certainly will use PC Pal again and hope that it is Jim who calls although I am sure all your employees will be of the same calibre. There are not enough good companies with great employees around these days. I certainly will use PC Pal again and would highly recommend the company to anyone who needs your service.

Once again thanks for a great job and keep up the good work.
