I contacted Jan with regard to our rather old PC, which we thought might be beyond repair. He has done a marvellous job and the PC is now running better than ever before!

Throughout the process, Jan maintained excellent communication with us and we now feel more knowledgeable about how to look after our home computer. Very reasonable rates too.

We shall definitely use Jan in the future.

Thanks again – I would definitely recommend Jan to my friends.

Evelyn Speller (Kempston)


I got Jan’s details from Cartridge Depot in Bedford. As I am very happy with my ink supplier, I went to Jan with confidence.

Even before I became a customer, Jan was very helpfull over the telephone with a problem which he solved for me NO CHARGE.

Then, when he serviced my computer, I got a very thorough check and when I recieved it back, the report was very clear about what had been done.

I will be using Jan for all my problems – both big and small.

Thank you Jan.

Anthony P. Cooper (Bedford)

A new lease of life for my laptop!

I got Jan’s contact details from the Sharnbrook Review so I am pleased to get two testimonials into one review!

I dropped my laptop a few weeks ago and the screen developed a fault, followed shortly after by a warning of a faulty hard drive. It is a few years old but it was high spec when I bought it and would be quite dear to replace.

Jan quickly identified what needed to be done and efficiently completed the work at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jan and I would happily use his services again.

Henry Lafferty (Sharnbrook)

Attention to detail

Jan responded very quickly to my request for help when my laptop broke down.

He explored all the options and explained everything very clearly. Nothing seemed too much trouble and he kept me informed throughout.

I will use Jan again and I am happy to recommend him.

Elspeth Dando (Oakley)

Excellent Service

Jan spent the morning setting up Email, installing software on Windows 10, along with linking 3 PC’s to a shared printer.

I would never have had Email working without Jan’s help.

Very friendly and efficient, providing excellent help and advice thoughout the morning.

I will certainly be using Jan in the future, particularly when our 2 older PC’s need to be replaced.

John Coley (Sharnbrook)

Anti-Virus and Windows advice

Fast, efficient and very helpful. In fact, Jan is everything to/for the non computer person

Gordon Reade (Oakley)

PC Upgrade

Jan upgraded our desktop PC from Windows Vista to Windows 7, also loaded Kapersky anti-virus software.

He also found malware which had slipped through our old anti-virus programme and removed it. He gave advice regarding general maintenance which is really helpful.

Thanks for all the help given; I will contact again if any more problems.


Nicola King (Cotton End)

Laptop Hard Drive Failure

We called Jan to help with our laptop following the malfunction of the hard drive. We are grateful for the help in recovering some items and replacing the hard drive. We particularly value the personal service that Oakley IT provides and the knowledge that we can ring Jan for follow up advice as necessary.

Brian & Kath Pawlett (Wootton)

Laptop Repairs

I cannot recommend Jan and OakleyIT highly enough.

Jan responded promptly to my original request for help and was able to accommodate my repairs quickly. He also came out to my home in Kempston to talk the issues through and pick my laptop up.

He was very open and honest about what work he may have to do and kept me informed at all times. No work or repairs were carried out without running it past me first and making the time-scales and costs clear.

My laptop, which simply didn’t run at all before Jan got hold of it, now works fantastically. If anything it seems to run better/smoother.

Jan’s willingness to help and friendly nature was extremely refreshing, and his expertise was also clear for all to see.

I will have no hesitation in turning to Jan first should I encounter any further problems.

Thanks Jan.

Wayne Hollis (Kempston)

Quick to help

Jan was a brilliant help when my laptop packed up.

I had put off getting it fixed for a few months thinking it was going to cost me hundreds, when I finally found Oakley IT and gave him a call he assured me it wasn’t the end for my laptop. He retrieved my files, replaced the hard drive and had it all working within a few days for a very low price!

Thanks again and will definitely be recommending Oakley IT and getting in contact in the future if I have any problems.

Lexi Lloyd (Clapham)

A LOT of viruses on my Computer

Jan was highly recommended to me by a friend and I have to say I now wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Exceptional value for money, thanks Jan!

James Canny (Ravensden)

Help with strange new laptop

I bought a new laptop and needed help to find my way round the new system.

Jan transferred my security package and installed my printer- things that I was finding impossible and tidied up my transfered files.

Jan explains things very clearly and by the time he left I understood the new laptop a great deal more- and no longer had the urge to throw it out the window!

Lynne Crook (Riseley)

Laptop repair

My daughter’s laptop was running slow and had malware infections. Jan made a home visit the same day I contacted him.

He explained the problems and made suggestions regarding software. He took the laptop away to repair and kept me informed of progress.

Delighted with the service, cost and my daughter is thrilled to have a fully functioning laptop again. Highly recommended.

Sally Feihn (Bromham)

Broadband Trouble

I am very grateful to Jan for sorting out my Broadband problems and helping me with all the other niggles with my phone.

He is a very good teacher as well and its great knowing he’s only a phonecall away.

No hesitation in recommending him and he is to be commended for his patience and forebearing to a not very confident user.
