WEBSTER, N.Y. — All of the remote work, school, and online entertainment so many of us are doing lately is keeping computer repair shops busy during this pandemic.
One look around Jeff Willey’s computer repair shop in Webster and you know these computer technicians are super busy.
“I’ve been here for 20 years and in business for 22 years,” said Jeff Willey. “We fix, upgrade, maintain computer servers and networks.”
More and more people are working remotely, taking classes from home, hosting virtual events and surfing the web for fun. Plenty of things can go wrong — and do.
“Oh yeah there’s been a lot more drop offs because people are on their computer a lot more. So the chances of them breaking down is a lot more common,” said lead computer technician, Joe Detro. “I’ve seen an increase in broken DC jacks because people are putting them in improperly and for some reason everyone’s breaking their screens.”
Kudos to all the computer technicians busy repairing laptops, broken computer screens, damaged PC’s and tablets. Jeff’s Computer Service in Webster is handling plenty of repairs because so many are working remotely. @SPECNewsROC @jeffscomputer #SmallBusiness #webster pic.twitter.com/0kyRUMP6vD
