What People Are Saying

Having been a client of Flatline Computers for almost 5 years for website building and maintenance, I was very impressed with their professional service. I recently took the plunge and booked a home visit with their technical support person to sort out some accumulative computer problems I had. These included slow internet, wireless printing, add blocking, general clean-ups on my laptops, tablet, phone and smart TV.

Daniel arrived on time, was courteous and fixed all the problems that were fixable. He also provided excellent advice on issues that could only be fixed with new equipment.

All my devices are now working together and the two hours Daniel spent with me has saved me countless hours of frustration.

I am happy to recommend his services to anyone.

As a current client of Flatline Computers, we engage them for advice, consultation  and implementation of all our IT and  telephony services.  They always exceed our expectations.   Being one of the largest companies in the area doesn’t take away from their prompt and professional service. 

They have an excellent reputation with our 3rd party suppliers and are known for their ability to identify and solve problems at the highest technical levels and go the extra distance whether working out of hours and on call.  We always  trust their recommendations and  they  know how to optimize purchasing solutions for all our IT requirements.

I would absolutely recommend Flatline to anyone.

Wayne was very thorough and professional. He was very helpful and patient, especially with following through with my son’s list of instructions, to set up my new Laptop, modem and internet access, and my questions.

A few months ago my computer did something weird. It just deleted all the photos of my most precious folder, the photos of my little girl Chloe. All of them gone.

I took the computer into Daniel at Flatline and he fixed it straight away. So happy to get those photos back!
