Why upgrade my PC, computer or laptop

As technology moves on your computer becomes less and less effective. New releases of software are usually larger in size and require more resources to run effectively. Sometimes a PC maintenance and healthcheck may free some resources and enable your PC to run faster. However, it may be that a PC hardware upgrade can provide the solution.

Of course, your first option is to purchase a new computer. However, this can be expensive and time consuming. Remember you'll need to transfer your programs and files from the old one to the new one. And it depends on what you are using your computer for. If you're a graphic designer or gamer, then you'll need the lastest CPU and hardware. However, if you've had your PC for a couple of years and really only use it for saving music, photos, surfing the web and word processing, then an upgrade might be the way forward.

Installing new hardware to increase computer speed

The easiest way to give your PC or laptop a quick boost of speed is to install some more RAM. This is the chip based computer memory you'll find on the motherboard inside the case. It is a fairly straight forward process and you can buy RAM online or in electronic outlets. But if you're not comfortable opening up the back of your PC to get to the electronics - we can help. We can examine your PC setup and supply and fit RAM as needed. After we've installed it we'll also do a full reboot and assessment to check that it's working correctly.

Our engineer callout service is available to all customers - call 020 8798 9250.

PC & software upgrades

It may be that you want extra functionality from your PC or Laptop. An upgraded graphics card or a TV tuner, for example. In this case, we can inspect your PC and recommend what components need adding to meet your requirements. We can also replace & upgrade motherboards, CPUs, fans, hard drives and install Windows 7 or other operating systems. In some cases if your PC is very old, we might recommend purchasing a new one.

TestimonialI was very refreshed by your honest and open approach. I think you've probably saved me quite a lot of money. I wouldn't even have thought about upgrading specific parts of my computer until you had suggested it to me. I would certainly use your servuces again based upon the good service you have provided me this week.

Steven Small, London

TestimonialI've been replacing my computer so often it never occurred to me to just install some more memory. Thanks for your advice - which was free! [Always happy to help! - Multi-Trade]

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Are their engineers certified to IEE 17th edition electrical standards as a minimum?
  • Remember - it is a legal requirement when working with gas or electricity.
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
