Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Updated 5 August 2020

**
For all Victorian customers, effective from 11:59pm on Wednesday 5 August and in accordance with government regulations:

  • Regional customers under stage 3 restrictions will be able to access on-site, remote and/or contactless pick-up services
  • Metropolitan customers under stage 4 restrictions will only be able to access remote and/or contactless pick-up services

**

Geeks2U is here to support you during this difficult time and is operating as normal with our technicians continuing to complete on-site jobs every day right across Australia.

We are also now offering remote and contactless pick-up services.

These options will be offered for any support that is able to be performed remotely and/or off-site and will be charged at our standard rates

We will continue to offer our on-site services in addition to these remote and contactless pick-up options subject to government regulations and provided we are confident that we can do so safely.

We share the concerns of all Australians about the risks of COVID-19 and have been closely monitoring the advice of federal and state governments and the World Health Organisation. In order to mitigate the risks as much as possible, we have provided Geeks2U technicians with detailed information on how to complete on-site services safely.

We also ask that customers do their part to ensure everyone’s safety by not booking an on-site service with us if they fall within the high-risk category detailed here or are currently in mandatory self-isolation.

If it’s support that can be provided remotely and/or through contactless pick-up repairs, we’ll be delighted to be of service via one of those means instead.

If you have a scheduled onsite service:

  • If you or any member of your household feels unwell, please contact us to cancel your service. All cancellations related to illness will not incur the usual cancellation fee.
  • If any household member has travelled in the last 14 days or has had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, we again ask you to contact us to reschedule or cancel your service.
  • Please help the technician to perform the work as quickly as possible by having your device turned on and passwords at the ready.
  • Please refrain from physical greetings such as handshakes.
  • Observe Australian government social distancing guidelines by maintaining 1.5 metres distance from your technician at all times.
  • Please note that we’ve also stopped accepting cash as a form of payment to further protect customers and technicians.

Please keep visiting this page for regular updates. We hope to be of service soon and that you stay safe during this time.

It’s a popular trope that Androids and Macs don’t get viruses or malware, but that’s incorrect. Whilst they may not be as susceptible to them as Windows PCs, there are certainly dodgy apps floating around for all platforms.

Back when Google introduced the concept of a Chromebook – a laptop computer not running Windows 10, Linux or Apple’s macOS, but instead an environment essentially running on Google’s own Chrome browser – they were pitched as low-cost student computers, and built accordingly.
