Computer Guy has been a registered business since the summer of 1996. Those were very different times. Computers were only sold by Value Added Reseller (VARs) and ranged in price from $1500 - $2500 on average. As the industry grew at lightning speeds, the personal computer hit the major retailers and profit margins dissolved overnight when Staples, Walmart and Future Shop started blowing them out the door. No longer was it viable to rely on sales alone. That's when Computer Guy became a primary service and support orientated business. Helping people set up and service their new, complicated, scary, but vastly more affordable computers.
With the loss of most of the annual sales revenue, the new business model was not self-supporting. Computer Guy went "Part-Time". The existing client base was strong and people kept breaking their PC's and still needed help. Computer Guy as a side business worked very well. Helping people at home after work and on weekends. The summer of 2003 Computer Guy bought into the Nerds On Site franchise and became a registered Nerd sub-contractor. A strong and mutually beneficial partnership that lasted well into 2013.
In 2013 Computer Guy relocated to the mountains of Banff National Park. Separated from family, friends and a stable client base the business had to start over. Business was not only slow to start but also put on the back burner in favour of exploring the new outdoor lifestyle of Alberta. Eventually, relationships with new clients and vendors established and just as business was starting to ramp up, a new opportunity in Victoria opened and the company had to move again.
August 2019, Computer Guy started operating for a very few select clients in the Victoria area. Most recently, the COVID-19 lockdown has mobilized the online presence of the business. With free time to spare Computer Guy Solutions rebranded itself with a fresh new logo, website, and a growing social media presences. With new parteners and collaborators we are ready for re-launch once the global crisis is over.
