PC Tune Up and Assessment
Tune PC and assess hardware/software needs:  $90.00

The PC Tune Up and Assessment is a great value. In most cases a computer that has been neglected for any amount of time has issues and these issues can take several hours to address. I will work on your computer and identify any software or hardware problems. In many cases the problems can be fixed on site. If the computer needs hardware I will research the parts you need and help you assess if it is economical to repair

Therefore, if the time required goes past 2 hours you get great value! The average PC Tune Up and Assessment can take up to 4 hours.

Don’t know if you have a virus? Not sure if your computer is as up-to-date as it needs? Time to consider a new computer? All these and other questions will be answered with a PC Tune Up and Assessment.

A good starting point for any PC owner:  PC Reliant will check your computer for viruses and tune your PC so it operates more reliably. Then an assessment will be done to determine if there are any hardware or software options that can be added or configured to make your PC experience more reliable.

Further, the consultant will work with the client to map out a plan to set up some easy to use tools to keep your computer running reliably. The consultant will review the client’s software use and needs and set out a plan to help increase your effective use of the technology you own.

A written report will overview the hardware, software and knowledge review and map out a plan of action that will achieve your personal goals.

Consulting Policy

Hardware and software consulting is billed at standard hourly rates. If no on-site visit is required billing is done at $45.00 per hour.

With experience it has become necessary to state a specific policy regarding consulting and advice to customers wishing to acquire new hardware and software. Originally this time and the resulting fees would be waived on condition Reliant PC Consulting did the integration/installation of the recommended software/hardware.

Several potential clients have either misunderstood the inherent value of this service or simply ignored the written/verbal agreement and have not engaged services to which they had agreed to once they have acquired the recommended hardware/software.
