Who we are

Who is The Mac Mechanic?

We’re a personable, flexible IT support business from Melbourne headed up by chief geek Darcy Hellier, who boasts more than two decades of experience. Small and nimble, we work as part of your team and can even act as your internal IT staff. We love working with all small businesses, but have proven expertise in supporting PR, Legal, Creative, Horticulture, Architecture and HR businesses.

Get to know the Founder

Chief geek Darcy Hellier has over 20 years’ IT experience, working with Macs ever since he started as a junior at a creative agency.

Equal parts left and right brain, Darcy was born with the gift of the gab and an obsession with technology since the dark ages of dial-up.

When he’s not helping clients, he balances his screen time by going ‘bush’ on his bike in Victoria’s mountain ranges, barracking for his much loved Demons or spending time with his young family.

Our Philosophy

At the Mac Mechanic we pride ourselves in speaking your language – IT doesn’t have to be a mysterious planet in another universe. And we will never make you feel stupid for asking a question.

We love honest to goodness problem solving, and finding the right technology that suits your business, not a one-size-fits all.

We love working with people, not just computers – we’re all about building relationships and being part of the team which helps grow your business.

Clients tell us we serve up straight-shooting, trustworthy service not often found in the tech world – we are geeks blessed with communication skills, keeping you in the loop every step of the way.

No job is too small, and no question is the wrong one. Grab a cuppa and check out our rates and packages now.

Some of our happy clients

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 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!
