Who Is Backup?

Providing quality IT support for London’s home computer users since 1997

If you need a professional, quality, established and trusted company to help you with IT in your home, you’ve come to the right place.

Backup Computer Solutions has been helping home computer users in London since 1997 with all sorts of computing issues. One of our very first jobs was to remove a jam sandwich from a floppy disk drive (we’ve always had work from children!). Back in the day, we also did lots of memory upgrades, adding an extra 2MB, 8Mb or 16Mb to 486 computers… And we also introduced many of our clients to the wonders of the internet by setting up their dial-up connections on 14.4k modems!

How times have changed…
Technology has moved at an incredible pace since 1997, and because technology is our business, Backup Computer Solutions has been at the forefront of all the weird and wonderful changes we’ve experienced. We provide an excellent mixture of IT services – from the more traditional, never-go-out-of fashion services such as hardware repairs, PC MOTs and virus removal, to cutting-edge services like hosted email accounts, ‘cloud computing’ and wireless multi-room music systems, like SONOS.

Our services are provided by a truly excellent and committed team of IT engineers and technicians, all of whom hold industry-recognised qualifications and certificates. Our longest serving engineer has been with the company since 2004.

The services we provide are flexible to fit in with your busy life: that’s why we provide an on-site service if you need an engineer at your home, a collect & return service to and from our workshop for hardware repairs, and telephone & remote assistance for instant support. We also offer a walk-in repair service if you want to bring your equipment in yourself.
