We have used Quick Call Dave Ltd for a number of years to look after our Mac when it is not very well! David reacts very quickly to resolve our problems, either over the phone or visiting our office. He is very patient with us, explaining why and what he is doing to find a fix. His attention to detail is very reassuring.

David responded very quickly to our initial enquiry and came the next day to trouble shoot out 6 year old MAC. It's now back with us, a few days later, working better and faster than it did when it was new! David is very personal nd gave me a few handy user tips along the way. Great service and outcome and have no hestitation in recommending him.

Best thing I ever did!

18 March 2018

Written by

From

Bristol, UK

I was given a new iMac for Christmas to replace the one I had used for almost 10 years. My son managed to transfer data from my iPad but then we came unstuck. I had thousands of photos on my old Mac and my husband, an ex accountant, had dozens of Excel files he wanted transferred. I googled home help for a Mac user and Dave’s contact details popped up. I emailed him last weekend and within 15 minutes he rang me. I explained the problem and he was able to come to my home on the Thursday morning. He arrived on time and was friendly, professional and efficient. He took great care to transfer everything I wanted even though it wasn’t straightforward because of the age of my old Mac. Contacting Dave was the best thing I ever did and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needed help with their Mac, no matter how big or small the problem!

Ongoing Great Service

Congresbury, North Somerset

I posted about the great work Dave does back in 2015 when we transitioned from windows to a Mac. Since then we have had him back many times a mix of general personal computing issues and some bits for my wife's business. Some hardware issues thrown in along the way. Throughout all of this Dave has provided a great service, highly professional, very organised and always delivers what he has promised. Dave is great at sorting out all sorts of issues, my wife who would describe herself as only semi IT literate thinks he is great at translating her issues/explanations into actionable solutions. As well as the technical skills Dave has first class communication skills, I guess that mix is sometimes hard to find.

Dave runs a very professional business right from the point of first contact to completion of project. He has turned what was getting to be a somewhat slower 6 year old Macbook into a very fast piece of equipment which enables me to be so much more productive rather than staring at a screen waiting for something to happen. Certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I bought my Apple Mac, MacBook, iPad and iPhone in May 2013. Since then I have used Quick Call Dave to help me. Recently its founder David Stephenson did an upgrade of my Apple Mac hardware (new SSD chip), plus updated my Apple Mac and MacBook to latest Apple Sierra software, re-loaded on all my personal software and settings from my back up storage, sorted out my Office for Apple software, then re-set up all my kit, my 4 Apple device email synchronisation and Epson printer again at my home office, plus gave me other advice on photo management on my Apple devices. I strongly recommend his services to you whatever your Apple kit needs are - in your home or for your business or larger offices. He offers really excellent service and value.

Dave Saved the Day... and my Sanity!

13 June 2017

Written by

From

Tickenham, North Somerset

Mid-way through my daughter's GCSEs her MacBook Pro went into a tailspin of re-boot, crash, re-boot. The stress was palpable and the need for a quick resolution was immediate. I reached out to Dave who, despite having to prepare for his Apple refresher exam the next day, dropped everything to help us out. Within an hour he had diagnosed the problem and escalated it direct to Apple - helping to keep my costs down. With Dave's diagnostics in hand a very impressed Apple employee was able to accelerate the fix (a logic board failure) getting the laptop back to me in 24 hrs as opposed to he published 3-5 days. Legendary service Dave and a big thanks from everyone in this household!

If like me you have neither the knowledge or the willingness to learn, then Quick Call Dave has to be your first choice. Not only has Dave sorted out my PC queries or problems with speed and effectiveness, he's able to explain what he's doing/done in a language that even I understand. His knowledge and expertise is vast. There's never been a problem with my set-up or network that he hasn't overcome. I have no hesitation in recommending Dave as an honest, genuine and knowledgeable Apple Consultant. I would not go anywhere else, neither would the friends I have recommended him to.

Slow death of Windows PC

Called Dave for help as our PC and laptop were slowly becoming less reliable (running XP and Vista). He took the time to find out what our overall needs were and to explain possible solutions. Since we already had iPhone and iPad we decided to buy a MacBook and migrate everything to Apple. On his second visit he quickly got all our systems up and running together and gave us enough training to start the process of learning how to do things the Apple way. Dave is extremely knowledgable and explained everything to us "Silver Surfers" in a friendly and very helpful manner. We have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anyone looking for impartial advice about IT problems and providing an efficient, good value service.

Dave has installed a full wifi network across our house, which is fantastic as we previously had a number of spots where the signal died due to the thick walls. He did everything in a way that caused minimal disruption and with minimal cabling (a pet hate of mine), so I'm really pleased that not only did he really know his stuff but he was sympathetic to my requirements and managed to work within them really well. Dave also set up our new iMac, which required a full reinstallation of the up to date software and the porting across of all data from our old machine. This again has been seamless. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave for any IT related issues.

I'm a Dj and relay on my laptop 24/7. Three weeks back i had a issue with storage and back up on my laptop it was a mess. Quick Call Dave sorted all of this out and talked me through the stages so that i would understand how to update things myself.He was so helpful i would recommend he 110 per cent.Last night to my horror i forgot my password to my laptop after 2 hours of trying i was at my wits end and had to call Quick Call Dave. This was at 21.00 and i wasn't expecting a reply but how wrong. Dave not only picked up he asked me to go to his house and he would sort the problem out . By 22.00 i was back up and running what more can i say. Thank You So Much QUICK CALL DAVE.

QCD responded to our request immediately. Date fixed easily to visit our office. We were Windows 7 users transferring to Mac Books and were concerned that it would be a difficult transition. Dave went through the conversion step by step and, by the end of the day, all was working. Other than our understanding of how Apple works, we have had no problems at all. Would highly recommend.

Prompt and excellent service as usual, went well above and beyond my level of expectation to fix my macbook. If I had gone anywhere else I have no doubt the fault would not have been diagnosed let alone fixed. Many thanks.

I would like to say a huge thank you to QCD. Im new to apple products & having recently purchased a Macbook QCD helped me navigate through the Macbook learning its basic functions & some amazing tips to help make this easier for me. I did ask the same things over & over testing the patience of Dave but he always was happy to help. Dave was also great when fixing a problem with my daughters laptop after a spillage, this could of been very expensive but Dave was able to fix saving myself a small fortune. I would recommend Dave to anyone as his knowledge is incredible plus his honesty when saving money goes along way. Thank you

Watching your 8yr old IMAC slowly wither in front of your eyes is a sad and somewhat frightening experience especially when one considers the financial implications of terminal decline in anything with an Apple on it. Picked almost at random in a state of panic, "Quick Call Dave"(appalling name i know but hey, beggars can't be choosers),arrived the same day, diagnosed the patient and wrote a very reasonable perscription. "DAVE" returned promptly and took the IMAC for an evening of "UPGRADES and RAM" and the following day we witnessed a very perky IMAC with a new lease of life. Impressed with the speed and efficiency shown i asked if the lack of INTERNET SIGNAL in my stone built property could be remedied. Indeed it can apparently and after 15 years of tolerating broadband that is incapable of penetrating anything thicker than a cardboard box, my son and i now are the proud owners of a small white ET device attached to the ceiling which booms 2G or even 5G to every room at full signal. Wonders never cease! In future I will not be driving my Apple products half way across the county to be greeted by an incoherent, snarling geek, with all the charm of a fence post. I will use "QUICK CALL DAVE" who turns up on time, sorts the issue, explains the options and solves the problem.

Excellent professional service for a Macbook pro repair

North Somerset, UK

My 2011 model of the Macbook Pro had been running slower and slower over a period of time and began struggling to perform basic tasks. On attempting to install the new el capitan software it finally crashed by failing to reboot. Quick call Dave was highly recommended to me. He offered a swift and professional service and used his expertise to fix various problems with my laptop. Dave kept me informed every step of the way and offered different options with regards to which hardware I wanted to be installed and price. I had new 8gb RAM installed and a new hard drive. My laptop now runs as fast as the day I bought it, can perform tasks with ease and I was really pleased that none of my data was lost due to Dave backing everything up. I would definitely recommend Quick Call Dave. The quality of service I received was excellent and I was happy with the price and how quickly my fixed laptop was returned. Thank you Dave!

Reassuringly Knowledgable & Pleasantly Straightforward

31 March 2016

North Somerset, UK

An expert who genuinely works for the customer. QCD gave solid advice to me in Oct. 2014 to persevere with a temperamental iMac. By March 2016 the machine was keeling over but after QCD serviced the machine, upgraded the drive to SSD and the RAM to 4gb my 2007 iMac is now back in fine form. No hidden charges. QCD stuck rigidly to the labour charge quote even though there was extra work to install new RAM, as I thought the machine was already maxxed out (QCD checked the bios and discovered it could now take an extra 1gb over the initial spec). I really can't praise QCD's service highly enough in every respect.

This has to be one of the best levels of service I have had in a long time. Dave collected my 27" imac, talked about the issue and updated me on progress. It was returned promptly (fixed!), demonstrated to me and all in a very friendly and non-arrogant way. The price to fix was very competitive, particularly when you account for the pickup and drop off.

Our old IMac died and Dave managed to transfer data and set up new computer. He stayed for as long as necessary to enable data to be moved, answering numerous questions that we asked. Next day we picked his brains via email on a couple a further questions and he was more than happy to oblige. Really glad we contacted Dave and will definitely use him in the future regarding any IT issues. A nice fella.

Life Saver!

08 February 2016

Clevedon N. Somerset

We all know that coffee and computers do not mix so when I accidently trashed my wife's machine, I told her that I realised that I had probably just ruined our life together. Her response was understandable- "but my whole world was on there!" Stupidly we had put off the whole back-up thing so I knew I was stuffed. I took the laptop to an approved Apple Repairer who confirmed that it was un-reparable, but when asked them to recovery the precious data they fell short and made excuses and just referred me to Kroll who charge businesses mega bucks. My home insurance partly paid for a replacement Macbook Air, but although I had the flash drive I still had no way of getting the data. I found a leaflet for Quick Call Dave Ltd and rang in desperation at 5pm on Saturday afternoon - expecting an answer machine. Luckliy Dave picked up the call and asked me to bring the drive to his home a few miles away. He was professional, knowledgeable and cautiously reassuring and by Monday evening I had the recovered data back in my very grateful hands. The charges were reasonable and fair for the work done and certainly many times cheaper than the alternative. Consequently I am delighted to recommend Dave and his services to you - please support smaller local providers - competence and the personal touch a great combination!(And my wife is now my friend again!)

We called David in to resolve two issues - one software related and one hardware issue. He spent an impressive amount of time on the initial phone call in order to diagnose exactly what the issues were. A few days later he visited our home to fix the issues which he did quickly and efficiently. We now have a Mac mini that works better and faster than it ever has. Highly recommended.

Dave has provided a great service helping us migrate from PC to mac. He is extremely knowledgeable and highly technically competent and combines that with being able to pass on that knowledge in a way that is understandable for the less technically proficient. He is responsive when you have an issue (has responded timorously to numerous follow up emails) an is a real pleasure to deal with. Highly recommnded.

From point of contact they were great, from explaining what they thought the issue was on the phone to meeting the next day to collect my mac! My hard drive on my macbook pro - 2011 had died and I couldn't access any of my files to recover. Never having a problem with my macbook I didn't know where to go but by chance found Quick Call Dave online and I am so pleased and trusted them with my macbook from the minute I contacted them. It now works better than before and I also paid to have a 8g instead of the original 4g that they recommended to speed it up. All my files, iTunes and photo's they managed to recover - Amazing I thought I lost everything! (now I will always backup)! With regular text and phone call updates on what they were doing was very reassuring knowing it was in good hands, and the cost of the fix didn't break the bank which I thought it would. I will always use them if any future problems, thank you so much again will always recommend your service! :)

He worked over the weekend to deliver my Mac back to me promptly – and then explained what he’d done. Really excellent service that i’d recommend to anyone.

Quick Call Dave helped me convert from a personal lap top with a broadband dongle and set up my home office room with an iMac, back-up, and wireless printer, he fitted a wireless Apple TV box to my TV in my lounge, and set me up with a mini iPad and iPhone for my mobile IT needs. His advice was very good and the complete set up was quick and it all worked straight away. He then trained me and helped me get used to my new kit, He also helped me with some data transfers. Quick Call Dave provided a timely and tailored service to my needs and I would commend him to you. When I need some more advice and help with setting myself up as a small business I will definitely use Quick Call Dave again.
