Geeks on Wheels rolls into new HQ

13 Oct 2015

Geeks on Wheels has a new headquarters in the centre of the nation’s capital, open extended hours, seven days a week.

Designed to be a place for all things tech, the new computer service centre is a place people can go to get a system service or free tech advice when thinking about buying a new computer.

The Geeks on Wheels HQ offers a range of services, and will make a PC faster, set up a computer or smartphone, remove viruses and spyware, backup important files, help find lost or deleted data, speed up mobile internet, give a PC and/or Apple Mac service and health check.

The store also has a display dedicated to a rotating collection of vintage computers, including models such as the Commodore 64, Apple Mac Classic, and a Spacies arcade machine.

Matthew Carr-Gomm, Geeks on Wheels  CEO, says, “The new store is a much needed and welcome addition to the consumer’s technology experience in Wellington.

“The store environment is warm, welcoming, and provides somewhere to get your computer repaired, grab a coffee and chat with a friendly expert.”

He says the location means anyone can drop off their computer before grabbing a bite to eat a local cafe, doing some shopping, before heading back to pick up the laptop.

Carr-Gomm says quick turn around and quality customer experience are key aims for the new store.

“The whole place, from the store layout, to the services offered, and our staff, has been specifically designed to ensure we always deliver an exceptional customer experience,” he says.

Geeks on Wheels HQ is open now on 42 Vivian Street, Wellington.
