Customer reviews for this trader
Strongly recommend PC-BMI as a highly competent and knowledgeable company. First class service and advice given, and overhaul/upgrade to my computer by Karl at a fair price.
Excellent communication, work and service.
Excellent fast and hassle free service.
Karl is highly competent in the field he operates in - computers, etc. He understood my problem very quickly and suggested a solution. When there was a field where he knew someone who would solve specific problems, he recommended them. He was able to sort me out with new equipment very promptly, at a good price and within the timescale that he promised. He is a courteous and politely spoken person and complied with our Covid practises. I will certainly use him again for other computer issues and will recommend him as appropriate.
My 11 year old 27 inch iMac had many issues, Overheating, running slow, hard drive capacity not sufficient to even run back up software etc. Karl turned up on time, had a quick, positive conversation with me and then took my iMac away. I had spent ages backing up all my files before he arrived. Just in case any files were lost. I needn't have worried. When he returned with the iMac a couple of days later, all the issues were solved, desktop just as it was before. email settings were as before, all my iTunes still there. All files as they were before and it was running faster and cooler too. He replaced the SSD Drive with one of a larger capacity. He had cleaned inside the computer and I am very pleased with his work. Whilst he was with us, he even sorted out an issue that my husband had on his PC. 5 Stars!! Thank you Karl Harrison.
Carl has a calm, pleasant manner and instilled confidence in his ability and trustworthiness to sort the PC problem. My PC was sorted out very quickly and efficiently and I would certainly use his business again.
Karl is an excellent I.T consultant. He is pleasant and punctual.
Karl at PC-BMI was very prompt in initially looking at the computer issue and then in taking the machine and dropping it off again. The process couldn't have been made easier for me and I would highly recommend this company to anyone especially if you can't bear to be without your computer!
Karl, was very responsive and fixed our PC within a couple of days. Great service and would recommend.
I needed a replacement keyboard on my Lenovo Laptop as some keys were not working. However I needed a quick turnaround as I need it for work. Karl delivered the laptop at 9.30am and all finished and ready for collection by 12noon the same day. Excellent service.
Very friendly efficient service. Was recommended by a friend and could not fault the service.
Found PC-BMI on Derbyshire Trusted Traders. They had excellent reviews and did not disappoint. Our laptop had been deteriorating for months until it was unusable. PC-BMI did a full service and diagnosis. They gave it a full clean, complete Windows re build, upgraded to a new solid state hard drive, new Dell battery and charger, and recovered all of our data. It now runs better than ever and was cheaper and more environmentally friendly than buying a new laptop. Will definitely be recommending PC-BMI to friends and family!
Jeremy was fantastic. Nothing was too much for him. Very kind, and knowledgeable. Would defiantly recommend. Laptop fixed in under a couple of hours.
Very quick, friendly and efficient Service and Good quality equipment supplied.
Efficient speedy and accurate repair of my apple lap top. It's like having a new machine at a fraction of the price!!
Friendly quick service. problem diagnosed and repaired without drama. Would recommend.
I emailed in the evening when my laptop's hard-drive had died and Karl phoned me in the morning. We took the laptop round socially distancing, and later that day he contacted me to tell me the problem. The next day I decided what action to take, and the day after that we were able to collect the laptop, complete with new hard-drive. Very prompt service.
Karl helped get our PC up and running again. He picked up my Desktop PC after following standard physical distancing measures. He reported back with the problem and announced it was now fixed. It was a relief to have it back working again as otherwise would have lost some irreplaceable photos. So based on my good experience, I thought I'd share this.
Carl was as good as his word and took us from being off line and without much hope to being fully restored members of the on line community! Didn't realise how much we depended on the technology sitting quietly in the corner until we tried to move it up stairs. It soon showed us we needed to put the old man into retirement when its power supply unit gave up the ghost and Carl was able to restore our standing within two short days! Amazing and the most gentlemanly guy you could hope to meet! Bless him . Feel very happy to recommend him to all. Thank you Carl.
Recommended by a friend. Excellent response time, and pleasant and efficient service.

Karl Harrison is a competent I.T. consultant. He is conscientious courteous and very reliable, always punctual and does what he says he will do. He gives detailed invoices. I wished there were more providers of services with his standards.
We can't thank Karl enough for sorting our computer and scanner out. We contacted Karl by phone and he turned up at exactly the date and time as arranged. After diagnosing our problem he took our computer away, again a date and time was arranged for the return of the same, and again very prompt timing. Karl set up the computer again in our home. Karl spent time explaining what he had done and gave us valuable advice and sorted out some security issues. We are very grateful and have no hesitation in recommending PC-BMI for all computer issues. We would certainly contact Karl again for any issues we have. Thank you Karl for all your help and sound advice.
We have had excellent service and would highly recommend this company.

Very satisfied with the service
*Customer feedback* Very quick response unexpected 45 call out charged. *Traders reply* Apologies if it was not made clear that a fee is charged for attending a call out to a customer's home or premises. We have to charge a fee to cover the travel costs and time spent.
I had never used Karl before and I wish I had! He arrived very promptly, discovered what was wrong with my home PC, quoted a price, took it away and returned it very quickly and fully functioning. The price was as quoted and I received an immediate receipt. Excellent service! I will certainly use him in the future and will recommend him to others.
We selected PC-BMI because we required a new computer and as we had used PC-BMI previously to repair our previous PC, so we were happy to use again. As we were uncertain to what we required, Karl explained everything in 'lay-man's' terms which gave us confidence that we were choosing the right computer for us.
Fast and expert service provided at a fair price.
I was given the time I needed, and everything was explained o me very clearly. I was given good advice, and the work was carried out by the time agreed. I am very satisfied, and would recommend this company to anyone who needs laptop repairs, or even to buy a new laptop which I did!
Efficient prompt response.
We have always used Karl at PC-BMI since moving to Derbyshire in 2006 for our family computer needs, from setting up and maintaining our home computers, purchasing laptops and providing annual checks, updates, anti-virus protection, servicing etc. He is also prompt at giving advice over a phone call if required. He has always been helpful, very reliable and trustworthy whenever visiting our home and I am happy to recommend him as a trusted trader.

PC-BMI have given me excellent computer support for over 5 years now and have provided knowledgeable information on internet security and regular maintenance of my computer system.
