Booking Service Slots
If you wish to make an appointment for our service(s), you can do so by following the on-line booking process. Appointments for a Technician to visit your home can
be made for a specific day, Monday to Sunday, and our Technician will visit you between 8.30am and 5.00pm. Appointments are subject to availability and will be allocated
on a first come, first served basis.
The date of the appointment slot for your Technician service visit will be confirmed in a phone call or the e-mail we send you after you have placed your order.
Our Technician will call you on the morning of the appointment between 8.00am and 10.00am to advise you of the estimated time of arrival of our Technician (if the
visit is planned to be before 10.00am then you will get a call before the visit). Computer Upkeep will try and be as specific as possible but may only be able to give
an indication of when our Technician intends to arrive, for example, within a 4 hour window.
Sometimes it may be necessary to re-schedule an appointment due to factors beyond our control. If it is necessary to do this, we will telephone you to try to
re-schedule another appointment as soon as reasonably possible at a mutually convenient time. In the unlikely event we do have to reschedule an appointment at any time
you may cancel your order and claim a full refund for the service affected.
We may need to arrange repeat In-Home visits in order to fix a problem.
