Can't speak highly enough of Darcy's service and advice. Among all the disappointing tech 'help' out there, Darcy is like a breath of fresh air.

The Mac Mechanic (Darcy) has been instrumental in upgrading our IT infrastructure. His time and effort to explain and assist us in the smooth transition of services was fantastic. Can’t recommend The Mac Mechanic enough.

The Mac Mechanic Rocks!! We run a busy design studio and the Mac Mechanic has been our right arm when things need upgrading or on the rare occasion one of our Macs goes down. Software and Adobe experts , they are always available to lend advice and only recommend the best gear at a decent price. Their remote management is awesome, they can fix anything by dialling into our Macs while we head to lunch. Crazy! No BS and no over the top solutions our studio doesn't need. If I could give them 10 stars I would, we can't recommend them higher to all of our clients. Keep it up guys!

Darcy is a knowledgable, professional and trustworthy Technology professional. I have a very small business and he has coached and supported me through various problems as I have established my businesses technology platforms. He has consistently been responsive, solutions orientated and efficient. Darcy's business is very successful and I have found him to resolve issues very effectively, with his customers best interests at heart at all times. Often the solutions he has recommended to fix my IT problems have been so successful that I have needed him much less in recent times. This is testament to his integrity, putting his customer first and his ability to deliver the right solution first time, quickly, effectively and at fantastic value. Thank you Darcy!
