Hi, my name is Herman and I am the owner of ITman Tech. We service areas from Oxfordshire to Swindon and have been offering IT, Apple and Computer repair services in these areas since 2009. Prior to this I owned and operated an IT company in South Africa. Head over to Services to see what we do.
Please note, we no longer provide mobile or tablet hardware repair (i.e. phone screens, batteries). John at The Cobblers (also Faringdon) provides phone services - there are also many places in Swindon.

Please contact us as soon as possible to arrange for your data to be backed up before we start work on your computer.
Please note, mechanical failure of your hard disk or other components inside your computer can occur without warning during our intensive diagnostics. Virus and malware infections can also damage your data and could lead to unpredictable problems and could result in data loss. For some jobs, we may need to re-install your operating system. This involves wiping your hard disk clean and re-installing the operating system back to the point when your computer was first purchased. We will contact you prior to doing this but if you require your data to be backed up prior to the wipe and restored back to your computer once the operating system has been re-installed please let us know. There will be additional charges associated with this service.
ON-SITE REPAIRS AND SERVICES
Your computer system should have a valid, licensed Windows or Apple OS X operating system installed. If you have not, we will need to purchase and install a retail version of the relevant operating system for your computer. Additional costs and time will be involved. We are unable to work on unlicensed operating systems.
We use Teamviewer for remote repairs. You hereby agree that we are allowed to remotely access your system. Our normal LIABILITY EXCLUSIONS and T/C apply to remote support. Some problems cannot be successfully be repaired remotely and as such we might need the system in the workshop to complete the repair.
Although we do not have specific knowledge of your computer configuration we will attempt to minimize disruption to your system as much as we can but we cannot be responsible for any unforeseen issues that may arise from any of our services. Please note that if your computer system or equipment is under manufacturer warranty our services may affect manufacturer warranty validity.

ONE YEAR WARRANTY
Unless stated, all non-trade services carry a one year warranty on both parts and labour. If in the unlikely event the same problem happens that we have fixed or any fault which is related to the service provided we will either try again to fix the problem at no extra charge or, if we cannot fix the problem, we will refund your payment in full for the services performed. This excludes faults caused by the failure of other components after the repair has taken place, or by faults caused due to incorrect use of software or downloaded material, virus and malware infections, or by faults arising from accidental damage or incorrect use of the product.
There are some exceptions where items our standard warranty does not apply. We will indicate to you at the time of repair/collection of repair what items have a limited or exempt warranty.

REPAIR & DIAGNOSTICS TIMES
Although we aim to get your device repaired/diagnosed as quickly as possible, the service can sometimes take longer than anticipated.

We will not be held responsible for any repairs that exceed our estimated completion time. We will make every effort to inform you if we expect a delay in our service.
REFUNDS FOR GOODS PURCHASED
For faulty items: If a fault occurs within 30 days of receipt, we will offer you a full refund. After 30 days, we will either repair or replace at our discretion.

If you have changed your mind or your product has been returned as faulty but no fault has been found you are not liable to a refund. Software is non-refundable.
