Set Up New Devices

Set Up My Device – PC and Computer Setup

If you’re thinking: “If only there was someone I could call to set up my device,” then we can help! When you are unsure about how to set up a computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any other device you are not familiar with, our Geeks can come to you and guide you through the process. We will ensure that you learn how to use the device, whilst setting it up correctly, and in a way that makes sense to you.

Transfer files from an old device to a new one

We can transfer all your files from your old device to your new one. We will set up your programs, bring over your Internet bookmarks, and anything else you may require to get everything working the way you are used to.

Perhaps you have a desktop computer, laptop, and smartphone at home, and you want to sync them together so that you can access emails, files, and calendars on all of your devices. Our Geeks take away the headaches involved with this and do it all for you.

The importance of Internet security on your device

device set upInternet security is vital to fighting off pesky viruses and keeping your information safe. We can provide you with the most up-to-date Internet security solutions and advise on which solution is best for your circumstances or hardware.

Internet security is not just about virus protection, it is also about ensuring you have password protection across your devices and setting up childproof passwords on devices with web access, to keep your children from seeing anything you would prefer them not to.

Training and tips for using your new gadget or computer

Our highly trained Geeks can provide education and training to familiarise you with your new gadgets. Sometimes a new computer will have features or software settings you are not used to. During a Mac or PC setup, we can walk you through your new system at your pace, to ensure you are completely comfortable with the new technology. We also provide training with software applications such as Microsoft Office, Internet and email applications.

Geeks on Wheels can also help you set up your Smart TV, connect it to the Internet, and show you how to use it. The beauty of Smart TVs is that they can interact with other devices on your home network to share photos, movies, music and other content. We can set all this up and show you how to make it work for your home or office. We can also connect your gaming devices and make it easy to switch between gaming and TV programmes.

Here is what we can do for you:

  • House or office calls at a time that is convenient for you
  • New device sales, including new PC systems and custom PCs built by our Geeks
  • Computer setup, including PC, Apple Mac, or any smart devices
  • Training to familiarise you with your new device
  • Transfer programs, applications, files, emails, Internet bookmarks from your old device to your new one
  • Sync your email and calendar across multiple devices
  • Advise on and provide security options for your new device
  • Create shortcuts for your favourite or most used programs
  • Set up peripheral devices, such as a printer or an external hard drive
