PC Techniques - Pandemic Protocols

Covid-19 Working Practices - August 2021

I am now Fully Vaccinated and past 2 weeks from second jab

However I remain cautious because of new variants of coronavirus and so will remain very careful when working in customer premises.

My Services are: (in order of preference)

Repairs by Remote Control - I can make a remote connection into your device (if technically possible) to work on it. This is useful for devices that are still functioning enough to be connected onto, and where the broadband connection is working satisfactorily. (This can also work with Talktalk broadband)

Off Site Repairs

Should the above not be possible and if it can be repaired off site, and returned (either by my collecting it, or you delivering it to me), then I am happy to do this.

Transfer of Your Device(s) for me to Repair Offsite

Please note that when handing over a device to me you ensure that it has been wiped thoroughly using a soft cloth that has been dampened (not soaked) in an approved virucide solution such as diluted bleach, to neutralise all hand contacted surfaces. Please do this also for any chargers, data sticks/external drives and carry case handles.

Please do this thoroughly to include keyboards, mouse, screen & base edges (where opening/closing and carrying are contacted,  This is especially important for 'smart phones', pads/tablets that are hand held in normal use, and also for power chargers which I ask you to make available.

During transfering please maintain a 2 metres distance.

When returning devices to you I will apply the same cleaning protocol to the devices and again maintain distance at 2 metres minimum.

Site Visits - On Site Conduct

I am now Fully Vaccinated and this is in excess of 2 weeks post second jab so I will resume repairing & installation visits,  but this has to be done with careful safeguards in place for both customers and myself.

Where the working space is small, or lacks open ventilation I will work in it but only if it is minimally occupied during my visit and has been thoroughly ventilated before I go into your premises. I ask that any unvaccinated or vulnerable persons there to keep a safe distance, this is in particular to protect them.

I will wear a N99 face mask even if those above conditions are met as an added precaution and require that persons I may meet do likewise during my visit.

I am sorry if this is inconvenient but I feel that I must protect as best as I can myself, my family and other customers to the best standards possible.

I update the knowledge that I have on a weekly & daily basis,  so my approach will change accordingly, so please do feel that you can discuss your needs of my work before it commences.

Please keep safe & well!

Greg Dance.

Thank you so much for your help in saving my computer after the “blue screen of death” appeared ... for repairing my laptop and getting it running like silk better than it has been for the last year or so. - In appreciation Louise.




"I'm blind and use a screen reading system to access my computer. Greg Dance was recommended to me by another blind person, as he has learned about speech systems, an area in which he specialises. I find him extremely helpful, patient, thorough and reliable. He's really helped me to get the most out of my computer, and I'm very grateful for all that he's done." - MK Nailsworth Glos.
