Why should I buy from you, instead of some large company like Dell?

A: At Techspertz, we are proud of being the producers of some of the best custom built PC’s available in the South Africa.

Also, we don’t over price our PC’s which means we have some of the best deals around. They may be hundreds of rands cheaper than the high street price for similar PC’s, but if you do a benchmark test you will find that they can outperform most of their competitors.

Where are you situated? Do you have a computer retail store?

A: Techspertz is based in Bakerton, Springs. We operate as an online internet business as well as an offline mail order and local high street business.

How quickly can you get a custom built computer to me?

At an extra charge, we also offer priority build and ship services, which mean that an order placed on Monday would probably be delivered to you on the Friday of the same week.

I found a PC part for cheaper than you are selling?

A: At Techspertz we offer some of the lowest prices in the South Africa. We regularly hear from customers who comment that they saved hundreds of rands by shopping at Techspertz. However, on a few occasions we also have some customers who say that they could get the PC cheaper from elsewhere. We understand this. At Techspertz we do not cater to people looking for just another run of the mill R1000 PC package. Apart from using quality brand name components rather than the cheapest possible parts, we have invested a substantial amount of time and money in designing a range of high performance award winning Custom Built PC’s. As such at Techspertz we appreciate that quality comes at a price and so we don’t attempt to cut corners. We don’t claim that we can make the cheapest PC’s out there but we can certainly claim that we can offer some of the best.

Do your PCs come with operating system?

A: Not all of our PCs come with operating systems. The best thing to do is to look at the spec of the PC you have ordered and see if the Operating System is listed on the spec or whether it says “None”. If you have bought a PC without and operating system then it will come with no software apart from the drivers and any additional software you may have ordered. We do provide you the option to buy our PC’s with the operating system pre installed and offer Windows 10
