What our clients say about us...

I had Rob visit for what I thought would be a relatively simple job.

He arrived on time, was very easy to get on with, managed to work two PCs at the same time, and was thoroughly helpful.

All round v good experience.

The Nerds offer great service and they know what they’re doing – when my laptop blew up,

Carl was onto it quickly and sourced me a pretty new rose gold one.

Would recommend to everyone.

Raewyn Ng

Need A Nerd really saved my bacon! Ask for Carl if you have any urgent IT emergencies,

I’d highly recommend the Nerds.

Ryan Marston

Need a Nerd have saved me from IT-phobia a number of times, so I now live free of wifi anxiety.

They got my initial wifi service up and running, got it upgraded it to fibre then managed to get my Sonos music system working, after I spent many hours trying myself.

I see them as my personal IT ambulance service, arriving swiftly and administering life-saving IT CPR.

With a lot of our work done from home they are simply life savers.

Kevin Norquay

I would just like to take this unexpected opportunity to publicly thank both Carl & Blair for their exemplary high & fair-minded approach to working through solutions to my particularly difficult PC tech problems.
Blair quickly worked through my initial issues but the realisation that I was basically expecting high performance from my older, slower PC led two him installing a quality new computer for us at an affordable price with all the Windows 10 bells & whistles.
The new music software too that Blair recommended & installed is now working a treat & I would like to acknowledge both his patience & analysis/remedy of a potentially difficult transition from my older software to the newer, updated music programme he recommended.
Carl’s personable follow up approach has really sealed the deal for me with regards to my belief that every individual they deal with really matters to Need A Nerd. Muchas gracias amigos!

Need-a-Nerd have dug us out of a couple of computer holes recently, and we’ve found them quick, responsive and efficient.
We’ve had a hard drive fail, and some internal network issues that were all sorted onsite within a day.
We’ve also had some good system planning advice and back-up and protection proposals put forward that we will be able to build into our hardware investment in the future.
Need-a-Nerd are now our on-call PC guys for all our offices in the Wellington region.
I highly recommend them.

Richard Horn

Need a Nerd is a great IT one stop shop.

Their responsiveness, service, professionalism and knowledge are top notch.
They listen and understand the relevant issues and bring forth the right solution in no time.

I highly recommend Need a Nerd.
