Jamie’s Computers endeavour to provide the best possible service for our clients.
Jamie’s Computers is pleased to announce that we will no longer be charging for collection of
* Small to Medium Printers
We can no longer accept used inks or toner cartridges. This is because there is a charge to us to recycle them correctly. Please be aware that we do accept unused boxed ink and toner cartridges.
For large bulky photocopiers or wide format printers, we will be charging a flat rate of £36 per collection, due to size, weight and difficulty of handling.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
As a Social Enterprise, We distribute our profits to The Society of St James, a Hampshire based homelessness charity helping over 2500 residents with alcohol , substance addiction & mental health problems.
The decision therefore to drop the charges affects our bottom line. Jamie’s Computers would appreciate any donation to go towards covering our costs when out collecting equipment. (We are able to provide an invoice for this service).

FREE BLANCCO DATA DESTRUCTION & FREE CERTIFICATION
In Spring 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect. with Fines up to 2-4% of worldwide turnover, Data protection is a huge priority.
Jamies computers have the processes and equipment in place to ensure our clients data is safe. We do this using Blancco 5 erasure software

Data destruction of this type offers advantages over physical destruction in that it allows the computer equipment to be refurbished and reused.

Jamies Computers produce a FREE DATA DESTRUCTION CERTIFICATE for your records to show that all data destruction for your assets is complete.
