Excellent service and my problem with my lap top cured. Ready for collection a day before estimated time. Many thanks

Michael Jebson – April 2022


What an excellent service! It was good to be able to talk and get intelligible explanations of issues and choices when my laptop suffered a major failure, and the repair cost was very acceptable.

Roger Emmet – April 2022

CSD Response: Thank you very much.


Fast, fairly priced, and friendly repair centre. It goes without saying that a smaller computer repair service compared to some of the other larger chains such as PC World is usually going to be better for the more personal touch, but CSD Ltd made the process of repairing my PC painless from start to finish.

They were easy to get a hold of for updates, provided plenty of information about the fault and PC maintenance, and gave me every reassurance about how my data would be handled securely – benefits you won’t find with a larger repair chain. The repair was finished on time as per the estimate given on day one, and the service throughout was excellent.

Scott Powell – April 2022

CSD Response: Thank you very much. Glad we could help.


A professional service from start to finish, their knowledge of the issue I had with my iMac, and the solution they found…..turned around in a matter of days….great communication throughout the repair….all very impressive.

Fully recommend ! a brilliant company that I will use again…..Thank you CSD !

“I’m very pleased with the service from Complex Systems Direct. They repaired my laptop in a couple of days and kept me informed about its progress throughout. If my laptop ‘dies’ again, I’ll use this repairer again.”

frances channon – February 2022
CSD Response: Thank you so much.


“My i7 PC randomly froze so I took it to Complex Systems to see what was wrong. The technician and the communication were good but the diagnostic was to reinstall the OS (which I’d already done). After being told the PC was fixed I left it running overnight and the problem reoccurred. I rummaged around the Internet for a few hours and found that the problem was caused by C-States in the bios. The problem went away after I disabled them myself.”

Steve Williams – October 2021
CSD Response: Firstly, glad you resolved your issue that’s great! Secondly, apologies the issue was not fully resolved when in for repair. We also ran it for 24 hours and it did not freeze, so we assumed resolved. It is always difficult to track a random intermittent event – that’s why we provide a 12 month warranty on all repairs – had you returned with same issue I am confident our engineer – after looking deeper would have resolved your issue. But many thanks for letting us know and if you get in touch we will arrange a credit for you.

Jack Carter – 2020


“Excellent experience after having discovered Complex Systems through eBay. My Macbook Pro Retina 2012, like many, experienced discrete graphics issues owing to poor solder of the graphics power chip. CS repaired this down to component level and kept me updated every step of the way. Fantastic – I hope I use again, but equally hope I won’t have any other faulty systems! Thanks & Best Wishes, Tom.”

“great to deal with”

Carol Chapman – 2020
CSD Response: Thank you very much!


“I had a MacBook Air which gave up a few years ago after a spillage. I’d been told that a replacement motherboard would cost a lot of money (certainly more than I could afford) so I reverted to an older machine and the MacBook Air sat in a drawer for years.

I stumbled on a YouTube video which mentioned Complex Systems and explained that it was possible to actually repair a motherboard instead of having to outright replace it. Sure enough, I found their eBay listing for my exact model, which was much cheaper than a replacement.

It was very easy to follow the instructions provided and get it sent off to them. They created a “ticket” for my item, which is a handy way to track the delivery and progress of the repair and keep in touch with any questions, much like you would when tracking a parcel online. It was very efficient.

They repaired my machine and sent it back to me. Unfortunately, there was some kind of secondary problem so when I tried to turn it on I had no response. I told Complex Systems and they were incredibly quick to re-organise delivery at no extra cost, and take a second look at it for me. Sure enough, they worked out the issue and repaired it again and returned it to me very quickly. It has been working perfectly for about a month now and I am incredibly grateful to have my machine working again.

I wish I’d known earlier that it was possible to repair my machine at such an affordable price. I will certainly be using Complex Systems for any future hardware issues I may have, as I found the whole experience very good indeed.”

Rhys Jennings – 2020


“I have use Complex Systems over 3 times now, and I have found the staff to be welcoming and obliging. It’s a cosy shop with a good atmosphere. The service is efficient with diagnostic details emailed once established. Once diagnosed, the repairs have been carried out within 24hrs in my cases.”

Francis Palmer – 2020
CSD Response: Thanks for your kind comments


“Last week I took delivery of a DEL laptop. My niece was 7 yesterday and is over the moon with it. It came installed and ready to go. Very happy with the hardware and the service.”

“Great service, very professional and good value as they fixed my 8 year old iMac and I would highly recommend them.”

Paul Lane – 2020
CSD Response: Thank you Paul.


“I own a 14 year-old iMac which runs some old but very useful software which would be extremely expensive to replace. The computer died and I phoned a number of Mac specialists in vain – ‘no spares available for a computer of that age.’ I took it to my local shop in Tewkesbury and within a week it was repaired and running as well as ever. The cost was very reasonable and service excellent. I cannot recommend the service highly enough.”

Julia Mitchell – 2020
CSD Response: Thanks for your kind review! We carry out component level repairs that most Mac Specialists do not. So its no problem for us to repair. I hope it continues to provide good service for you!


“Had a Macbook with total power failure, a problem, I believed, with the I/O board rather than the battery.
When I first spoke to them I was told I was looking at four to ten days as a reasonable estimate, but having taken it in on Tuesday, I had it back and better than ever on Thursday.
In the interim the email update system kept me apprised as to the ongoing work, and conversations with CSD were always clear, informative and friendly. Pricing was also reasonable.
Extremely happy with the service, and though I’d hope not to need them again too soon, I wouldn’t hesitate to use them or to recommend them to others.”

Phil Smith – 2020
CSD Response: Thanks so much!


“My imac looks new, great job good price.It is nice to have it back so fast.xvictorjohnson”

Victor Johnson – 2020

Jim Utteridge – 2020


Julian Alington – 2020


“A brilliant service made easy for my iMac. Full explanation of what was necessary to affect a repair and then up to the minute updates on the progress of that repair e.g. when parts ordered, when parts arrived, when repair completed and subsequent update on testing. Quick and easy, took a business card to ensure I could pass on the details to any colleagues that need their computers looked at. REPAIR Ticket Number 1021378”

Chris Leibbrandt – 2020


“My laptop had failed, nothing but a blank screen, and feared the worst. An immediate diagnosis,and the problem solved, and the laptop returned in a few days. Have nothing but praise for the way I was received and the efficient response. Thank you.”

David Evans – 2020


“As always a Quick, Efficient & First Class Service with complete communications throughout the service process. Steve runs a professional & reliable company that always delivers.
If you have a PC, Laptop or Tablet device with issues this is the place to Go.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Complex Systems Direct.”

Mike Kyte – 2020


“Really impressed with the professional and faultless service from Complex Systems Direct. After my MacBook Air failed to turn on a few weeks after a small water spill, I gave my laptop in for inspection. After a couple of days I was both emailed and texted the outcome and the costs, and then proceeded with the repair. The whole process took less than a week, and I was regularly updated along the way. From thinking it was ‘the end’ for my laptop, I now have it back…and running perfectly. Thank you so much for the quick turnaround, the ease of the whole process, and great customer service. Highly recommended. Ticket no 1021309”

Becca Rawet-Smith – 2020

“Excellent service as always”

Grace Phillips – 2019


“Never ever go to an approved Apple repair center they will either say it cant be repaired or it will cost a min of £500 no matter whats at fault, always use and independent repair center like Complex Systems.The specialist technician knows his way around any type of computer and offers a reliable cost competitive service.”

Stephen Collins – 2019
CSD Response: Thanks for your kind comments. Kind regards CSD


“Brilliant shop, really knows his stuff – great support for our business! Highly recommend.

I popped in this morning for some advice as I had done something stupid (total operator error) with my laptop and was able to tell me what I had done and how to fix it in under 30 seconds without even seeing it!

Support this local company as prices are better and service is 100% better than chain shops who just don’t have the same knowledge or customer service!”

Python Vapes & CBD – 2019


“Had to have the keyboard replaced on my laptop due to water splashing on the top. Complex systems diagnosed, ordered the parts and repaired it in 4 days and kept me informed via text/email throughout. After the diagnostic test they inform you of the cost and have the option to pull out if you don’t want to go ahead. Although I do not have a great deal of experience regarding computer repairs, I thought this was repaired at very reasonable price, I believe they are trustworthy and I would not consider going anywhere else. Plus you receive a free gift on collection and who doesn’t like a freebie!!”

Christina Bryant – 2018


“Had my laptop repaired here more than once. Have found the service excellent. Quick sound advice, problems permanently resolved by the expert technician. Will always go back for all my device problems.”

Russell Wilson – 2017


“The service these guys give is very very good– had a problem they sorted it — short while later had another problem — again they sorted it

thing is they up and told me the 2 problems were connected so they should have sorted it first time about ,so i was not charged a penny for the second visit
and this was after they had a good fiddle with it
thing is i would have been none the wiser
so yes there is great pride in what they do and the service is all you could wish for”

leslie compton – 2017


“Flogged me a second hand Compaq laptop for £100. After a while it appeared the sound did not work – the audio jack had been forced. When the display became intermittant, it was apparent the laptop had been dropped. None of this was mentioned in the sale.”

Jonothan Lincoln – 2016
CSD Response: This is not a valid customer. We do not sell laptops below £150 refurbished or second hand. We have not sold a Compaq laptop of any description for over one year. No customer of this name is on our records. This customer is either mistaking us for another computer shop or is being untruthful or is a competitor. we would throw this challenge down to the poster of this comment: Prove you purchased this machine from us and we will give you £100 and an additional £200 to apologise. This post has been reported to Google for them to investigate.

Informed by text and email at every stage. Great customer service”

Judith Ann Harrison – 9 Jan 2019


“After being told by Apple, Regency Arcade, Cheltenham to get the data backed up prior to repair on a MacPro and giving me a company to call which I did and a quote of £299 was given and this was before any repair. Apple ran no diagnostics on this computer either although I had rang Apple and had an appointment for this nothing was offered except to use a company for data recovery. On searching the internet Complex Systems came up and I emailed and the response was immediate and I took the computer to be looked at. The service provided was exceptional, I felt I was listened too and solid advice given. I was emailed every step of the way and the computer was repaired and ready for collection almost immediately. The total cost was just over £70.00. Amazing. Without hesitation I will certainly not use Apple at Cheltenham as I have found the most superb repair company I have ever dealt with. Congratulations Complex Systems”

I dropped the laptop off at Complex Systems, received an estimate for the repair and parts and was kept updated by email of progress sourcing parts and the repair status. When the final part arrived the repair was quickly completed and I received another email telling me I could collect it.

“My son had an issue with his MacBook and had taken it to the Apple store to be assessed. He was told MacBook would have to be sent away at a cost of £100 plus replacement screen likely to be c £700. I emailed several local apple repairers and received response from Steve at Complex Systems in Tewkesbury. Some didn’t respond. I took the MacBook in and found Steve to be very knowledgeable and professional. He fully explained the scenario for the repair. I was kept in the picture throughout the process. You can also view details of the repair on their website.
The repair was completed quicker than expected and around half of what Apple wanted to charge. Parts are also provided with 12 month warranty. Whilst I would hope not to have to use again, I would have no hesitation in going back to Complex Systems Direct Ltd for any Apple issues. Recommended”

Gary Hall – 25th February 2017


“My son has a custom build gaming computer which wouldn’t boot after fitting new parts. Originally went to PC World Know How bar who offer a £60 fixed price repair charge. Initially they said they wouldn’t be able to investigate because the computer wasn’t “off the shelf”. Then, when I described the problem they suggested they would be able to fix, but the repair would wipe the hard drive and that would be a further £90 to recover the data plus the cost of any parts that might be needed. They said this without even investigating the fault. 

So I went home, Googled and stumbled on Complex Systems computer repairs. Yes, their fixed price repair fee is slightly more expensive, but this was definitely worth it as the whole experience was very good. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and kept fully informed throughout the repair. Fortunately my son’s repair didn’t need new parts, but if it had this comes with a 12 month guarantee. I will definitely use Complex Systems again for any computer related problems”

Mr I George – 8th February 2017


“My computer locked me out and I could not access any sites. Complex Systems Direct Ltd took my computer for two days and were efficient and sorted out the problems and I would highly recommend them”

Lady J Huntington-Whiteley – 16th January 2017


“I brought in my computer with the external hard disk on which I do my back up because this was not happening any more. I was told that it would take two to four working days, but 24 hours later, my computer was repaired, except that they just told me the hard drive was not compatible with Windows 10 and they disabled the back up without asking me what solutions I wanted about it. I am not very keen on using windows products and I would have liked to be offered another product. It works so the result is satisfactory but it would have been much better if I had been consulted”

Sophie Franklin – 12th January 2017


“I took my laptop into the Tewkesbury shop, and 24 hours later it was mended and it was done very cheaply. The service was polite, informative and the online information re the repair was prompt and frequent. I asked at the Apple shop in a local town and it would have cost much more and taken five times as long had I gone there. The laptop needed the fan replacing and other parts checking”

Lloyd Allington – 6th January 2017


“I took an iMac in just after Christmas, no other repairer was open, and I had it back on 3rd Jan, pretty exceptional I think, considering the holidays. I was just getting a black screen and it was diagnosed very quickly as a corrupted download, the cost was amazingly reasonable. I was kept fully informed by text. Cannot fault the service”

Mrs S Bunn – 3rd January 2017

William Cook – 25th September 2016


“I was very pleased with the help I received when I wanted to change my ‘new to me’ laptop to my account and to have it checked. I was kept informed by text and email as to the progress of the work, which I really appreciated, and when I began using the laptop Steve was very helpful on the phone when I had some basic problems. I will use Complex Systems Direct again”

Sheila Hendy – 6th September 2016

Hilary Davies – 27th July 2016


“The service was exceptionally good- more than one has come to expect”

Peter Greenhill – 15th June 2016


“My original ipad2 was found to be beyond economic repair, once this was established and with the least of delay a replacement iPad 2 was ordered prepared, set up and ready to go within a few days at minimal cost and with a 6 month warranty. No fuss no complication just quick no nonsense diagnosis and rectification. Thank you”

Patrick Jones – 1st June 2016


“I live local to complex systems and and my laptop which I need for my business developed an issue where the display packed up. I took the laptop into the shop for analysis. Within an hour I had a progress report along sent to me via email and subsequently an email notifications every time there was an update. The total time from dropping the laptop off until collection was only 4 days and everything was working fine. The price for the repair was very competitive but as important the quality of the overall service including regular progress updates was very good”

Shaun Pates – 22nd July 2016

Anthony Poke – 29th March 2016


“Great little local business, friendly service. Totally recommend”

Joanne Ellis – 16th March 2016

I was recommended to the company by my neighbour and would not hesitate to recomend to anyone else”

“I have had several occasions to use the services of this company. Not being particularly adept at anything connected with computers (in fact being almost completely ignorant of it), I have had to put my trust in these professionals. I am happy to say that they have, without exception, proved that my trust was well founded. They have been very helpful and always very fair in their dealings with me. Long may this continue”

Daniel Bouvet – 19th November 2015


“MY PC had a start up problem. I was informed it was the mother board. I WAS HAPPY WITH THE PRICE. IT was repeated at the time they said.. And I had it back in three working days. I WILL USE THEM AGAIN and THEY ARE VERY HELPFUL and PROFESSIONAL. THANKS. DAVID HAWKINS”

I would recommend you try here before going to other large well known stores, I have found local has been best. There was a slight delay but this was not the fault of the shop and they kept me informed the whole time. Recommended”

Wayne O’ Leary – 23rd October 2015

N Sawkins – 21st October 2015

Robert Marriott – 29th September 2015


“My second repair at complex systems (first was a dodgy connection to a laptop screen). This time my daughters laptop sustained some damage to the USB port and start button when she dropped it. I was given a clear explanation of probable outcomes and solutions to the problem along with a basic starting cost. Great updates and prompt repair. When I emailed, always got a quick same day reply”

Carole – 20th September 2015


“Tricky software problem causing the computer to continually reboot. Probably could have solved it by complete re-install of Windows and consequently loosing everything, but Complex Systems managed to solve the problem without loosing anything. Wonderful service”

Steve is always friendly and helpful and obviously is extremely competent”

Ann & John Rule – 15th January 2015

No more overheating, no more fatal errors. The tracking system was fantastic because I knew what was happening at every stage. I would thoroughly recommend Complex Systems to everyone”

Pauline Blackburn – 5th July 2014


Desktop PC had a corrupted Windows 7 OS, meaning I couldn’t access my emails or use a lot of programs without a lot of hassle. The Engineer backed up all my data and emails and re-installed OS. No files were lost and PC now works as new. Thank you”

Pete Andrew – 12th May 2014


“I had inherited a ‘dead’ HP laptop just initially to recover the data but decided the it could be worth repairing so popped into CSD. Stephen was very positive and explained their costings and repair tracking system. The latter is very useful for monitoring progress and permitting interaction as required. So after one motherboard and screen cable, I now have a spare laptop which I am well pleased with. CSD is a professional setup and great to have it on the doorstep”

David Thomson – 6th March 2014


“I took my laptop to another repair shop and was told I would have to buy a new one without any real explanation of the problem. When I took it to complex systems the problem was diagnosed quickly and fixed. The track feature was great as I knew what stage the repair was at and when I was due to get my laptop back. All round a fantastic company who did an excellent job”

Leslie Mcdowall – 24th January 2014


“Old computer fitted with new motherboard, hard drive and re-install Windows XP. Now works superbly, only wish I had found this company previously”

Julian Scrivener – 10th December 2013


“My slow computer was checked, serviced and various problems ironed out. Steve presents himself as a calm unworried person, thus giving the customer confidence and reassurance. My computer is now working well. Thanks Steve”

Miss Margaret Dale – 19th September 2013


“I had decided to buy a new computer because mine had become so slow (if not static)and unreliable. My neighbour suggested that I take my laptop into Complex Systems Direct Ltd because he and his family had been very pleased with the service they provided. I took the advice and I cannot believe the transformation of my old laptop. It now works as efficiently as it did when I bought it 7 years ago. The value for money certainly is exceptional”

Angela Mary Kelly – 1st July 2013
CSD Response: Thank you for your terrific review and I’m glad you are happy with our service.


“I had my computer serviced ‘cos had problems with loading windows. The work was carried out quickly and I had the computer back in a few days. My computer is now working much faster and I am extremely pleased with the work that has been carried out”

Mrs Mary G Smith – 11th May 2013


“I have used Complex systems in Tewkesbury for all my computer repairs and recent compute purchases. Steve’s insights are always helpful and well-informed and have really enabled me to make the right choices on how I spend my money. I am very happy not only o continue to give Steve my custom but to also recommend him to others. In the past two weeks Steve has had to repair a laptop that had fallen to the floor. He was able to quickly advise to the repair needed and to give good counsel on the process should an insurance claim be warranted. The other repair was to my desktop computer which I use for my work. All issues were resolved speedily and good advice regarding memory upgrades was given. In fact I was advised not to upgrade my memory but to invest that finance towards a future computer purchase. Trevor Barnett-Tewkesbury”

Trevor Barnett – 9th April 2013


“Took my non-functioning laptop into the shop yesterday morning. Immediately diagnosed as a broken screen: and as immediately priced with an estimated three days return.
Within 36 hours received a text message that the laptop was ready. Not only is it functioning but it has been restored to original speeds and quality: the detailed report sheet was thorough and indicated all the work done. Advice was given professionally about the pitfalls to be avoided to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence of the problem. It is a pleasure to write that I cannot fault the service given. So often I find myself frustrated by promises broken and deadlines missed by suppliers. I will return to Complex in future and recommend their service without reservation”

Jim McKay – 6th March 2013


“My desktop computer had been giving me problems for some time (crashing randomly, freezing, slow load times etc. ) and so I decided to take it into Complex Systems to have it fixed. 

The problem was quickly diagnosed as a faulty hard-drive and a replacement was ordered for me the same day. Since the part had to be sent off for there was some delay in getting the computer back although the wait was only a couple of days. The cost of the replacement was reasonable and the hard-drive itself was actually a slight upgrade over my old one. 

The computer now runs fine and it seems that all the problems I was having have been resolved. 

Overall I would say that Complex Systems offers a good service at a fair price and whilst the cost of parts may seem a little high compared to online deals they are by no means unreasonable compared to the high street. If I had further problems with my computer I would return to Complex Systems and would recommend them to anyone local to the area”

Jack Ward – 1st March 2013


“Supply and install printer as discussed &. Agreed. Removed virus from laptop &. Installed Adobe together with system to convert Pdf files to windows where files could be edited.  As a pensioner trying to survive in a modern world I have found Stephen a great help with advice and technical knowledge”

David Wilkinson – 23rd February 2013


“Excellent service and value for money. Explained things in a way that I could easily understand. I would fully recommend this company and will DEFINATELY be using them from now on and they are on the doorstep, so no having to trek over to Cheltenham anymore – bonus”

Lesley Maycock – 5th December 2012


“Very quick repair and sercice good advice on product and explaination of my problem has saved me a lot of money as other retailers advised me to purchase a new product thank you”

Lionel James – 1st October 2012


“First time I have used complex systems. Laptop and pc tower sent in for repair. Pc tower needed new hard drive. Then they found mother board to be faulty meaning the computer was beyond repair. They put hard drive I had brought in a compuiter they had their and gave it to me without any extra cost. I think this is amazing as otherwise I would of been without a computer but still of had to pay for the work done. I would definately use them again. They are friendly efficient and fair. Also, I am local, so my computers were collected and returned to the door which saved me time, extra journeys and finding their location which is not my strong point”

Donna Hope – 24th January 2012


“Very helpful and quick turnaround”

Brian Cook – 24th October 2011


Steve was most helpful but a weakness I found on recent purchase of a computer & printer was the lack of product display even accepting manufacturers make changes almost daily. Had there been visual display other than going onto the web I would most likely have bought a higher spec’ printer”

A. Chinn – 18th October 2011
CSD Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, our store is too small to stock a large number of different printers. We always listen to what the customer wants from the printer and their budget and recommend based upon this. Printers not in stock are ordered and arrive next working day.


“Swift turnaround much appreciated”

David Peet – 18th October 2011


“Complex systems have always helped us out in our hour of need. They are friendly, efficient and would highly recommend”

Sally Page – 17th October 2011


“I have used Complex Systems to repair my lap-top. Repair was done quickly and efficiently and extremely good value for money”

Rachel Howells – 17th October 2011


“Four months ago, Complex Systems Direct Ltd fixed my Dell laptop which had crashed a couple of times within a year – the second time it happened, I thought that I would have to replace it, but a new C drive which was fitted within three days, and it has been working perfectly ever since. They even installed new anti-virus software. Great service all round”

Sam Sammels – 23rd July 2011


“Complex Systems set up our in-house booking system and have maintained our computers for approx 7 years. We have always found them to be efficient, reliable and pleasant to deal with”

Aeroscope Travel – 22nd July 2011


“Stephen built me a high end pc for video editing ,gaming and music production over 4 years ago. As he advised on future proofing and not just using the cheapest components into the build i still have a high pc over 4 years later that still holds it’s own against a 6 month old shop built pc, that i use on a LAN network. Maybe not the cheapest shop around but you get what you pay for and the quality is high here. many thanks again. Will buy again when i can afford it. matt”

Reign of Fury – 20th July 2011


“Faced with a computer that kept on crashing, I was pretty stressed out but Steve calmly worked through the possible problems and when, reluctantly,he diagnosed the old computer as unsaveable, he gave me advice on what to buy, how to adjust my software for Windows 7 and then installed it all on the new computer. Everything now works swimmingly. Highly recommended. David Tovey Art Historian”

David Tovey – 19th July 2011


The four star Service rating is not five stars only because “house calls” are limited to Mondays but problems arise anytime”

Philip Langston – 18th July 2011


“There are no problems with large jobs such as purchasing and installing new equipment, but quick fixes often cannot be done within a reasonable timescale even if they can be done on-line. Whilst these may be minor problems they are often serious for the user and have caused me, at times, to have to get a fix elsewhere when I would prefer always to have my IT support in one place. I have found it easier to get product support beyond the simple warranty (e.g. when a fault lies outside the warranty period but is still within statutory rights or a good case for a goodwill payment) when dealing directly with suppliers rather than through Complex systems. For a long standing, reliable account, I am disappointed to be asked to pay 100% in advance when new equipment is purchased. In all other respects the service has been reliable and attentive. Overall we are satisfied”

Robert MacKenzie – 18th July 2011
CSD Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, we do not provide credit terms. We do offer fast fixes provided the customer has a valid support contract that will detail SLA levels and the response time to incidents. Our response time to those customers that have and pay for support contracts and have a “critical incident” as specified in their contract is within 4 hours. We have never failed an SLA yet. A support contract was offered that would provide this level of support within the timescales discussed which was declined. Out of contract repairs are resolved between 2-4 working days as opposed to industry standards of 4 days to 6 weeks. Our telephone/remote support services to non contract customers is usually immediate or same day depending on our current workload. Where this is not possible it will always take place the next working day.


“I received total satisfaction with the service given, being fast and efficient and greatly pleased with the amount charged, I will deffinatley use Complex Systems again and I have all ready recommended them to friends”

Jackie Y Grace – 1st February 2010


“My PC has a 5 year parts and labour warranty and recently required a memory upgrade. Complex Systems visited onsite and fitted the upgrade for a very reasonable price. Very happy with my purchase and dealing with a company you can trust”
