“It was definitely a reasonable price, I honestly don’t think he charged me enough for the amount of time he spent on my computer” -Mark Steadman

Mark has been in the Kansas City area for a bit and he was pretty bummed out when he tried reloading some security software and not being able to. he contacted velocity computer tech immediately to speak with an expert. He was told to bring his computer in, and a full scan revealed  the existence of various viruses.

The friendly staff at Velocity Computer Tech updated his security software and left it running for him.  “It was definitely a reasonable price, I honestly don’t think he charged me enough for the amount of time he spent on my computer”.  Said Mark jokingly but he was truly satisfied with the outcome of this unwanted situation.  His request was handled properly and timely by a very friendly staff and he has not had any troubles since.
