About Us

Computer Geek was founded in 2004 by Chester Mackley from Absolute Adventures, Jersey's premier adventure and activity centre (absoluteadventures.je) . Since Chester's departure, the comapny has upheld the core business of offering first class quallity IT support and service at an excellent price. We offer a very broad range of services which are backed by our no-fix-no-fee guarantee. Additionally, for your peace of mind, all engineers are industry qualified and fully insured.

 We are extremely proud to be a member of the Jersey ECO Active Business initiative.

As a company, and as individuals we firmly believe in refurbishing machines before replacing them. This has so many different advantages, the most important being the reduced impact on the environment by the mountains of e-waste which accumulate in ever increasing volumes year on year.

We actively look for ways to decrease our own carbon footprint and recycle all packaging within our organisation, use power management on our internal equipment and try to minimise travel around the island by grouping our workflow into parishes wherever possible.
