Computer going slow? Chances are your hard drive is to blame.

Hard Drive Replacements

Computer main data storage is normally a hard drive. Over the year, hard drives have been upgraded, and now we use SSD's which are fitted as a replacement. PC Service Centre can fit these without data loss.

Data Transfers

PC Service Centre's main aim is to protect data. We back up all data before we run any tests, data transfers or any data changes to be able to recover from any losses for your protection.

Hard drive Testing

We test all types of data stores, mechanical, SSD's, M.2 SATA, to name a few for speed and consistency.


Data Recovery

We have software to perform level2 data recovery from hard drives that have had data loss, failed or not able to boot.
