About

My name is Jamie Watson and I run Colchester Tech. I also work as a full time as a computer geek – If you’d like to learn more about my business please read on!

Colchester Tech is a Colchester based business, created to serve home users solve their PC and Laptop problems. Originally formed as Framlingham Computers out of Suffolk I have relocated to Colchester and will be offering my computer repair services to Colchester.

Open to Colchester residents and customers within a 20 mile radius.

My newly extended opening hours are 9am to 10pm Monday to Friday with some weekends (check our opening times for exact hours). These hours are targeted towards the home user although I can tend to small business users I cannot accommodate work outside of these opening times – please call or e-mail first as I am usually out on a job and am rarely home!

For customers with basic computer issues, an in-house repair could cost as little as £30.00 – these tend to be small jobs including home network setup, basic malware removal or hardware installation. Due to current workloads I currently do not offer a call-out service.

Colchester Tech is located just a short walk from Colchester North Train Station. Free off-street parking is available for customers outside my premises.

If you have any queries, questions or would like a free no obligation quote please contact me via the sidebar contact form, telephone or e-mail and I will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible. I prefer contact via e-mail as I do not answer my phone while out on a job.
