But (we hear you thinking) what does all this amazing service cost? We’re happy to give you full pricing on any service you require (and the price we quote is the price you pay). Let’s take a look at a few of the basics. Need online diagnostics and repair? The Geek Squad is going to charge you $149.99 for that. (And given that they claim to solve problems in an average of 45 minutes, that means they’re really charging an average of $199.99 per hour for their services.)
We can beat that, big time. When you call the Florida Nerds for online/remote support, we charge only $80 per hour. We’ll let you do the math. How about the removal of viruses, spyware, and other malware? You’ll have to swallow the same charges from the Geek Squad: $149.99 per call. And once again, the NY/FL Nerds comes in at a sweet $80 per hour. And that includes all software required to make your computer whole and get you protected.

We’ll even come to your home or business to handle whatever fixes or setup you need for just $120/hour. That’s right: We charge less for a house call than you’ll pay to talk to an anonymous support guy on the phone at Best Buy.
A simple troubleshooting call to the Geek Squad is going to run you $39.99. (Really?)And you might cringe when you see what the Geek Squad charges for business IT services. Their standard business support plan charges $24.99 per month per user. (Just think: How many computer users do you have in your office? That’s going to add up quickly.) If you need server administration, that monthly charge of $49.99 per user is going to click in. Think about how those high charges will carve a hole in your IT budget when you’re ready for an upgrade or new equipment.
Then, of course, there are all the services that the NY/FL Nerds make available to you that the Geek Squad doesn’t offer. Like cyber forensics — which we hope you never need (but if you do, calling us is the thing to do). Or our specialized security services (also not available from Best Buy). Both for a rock-bottom $220 per hour, either at your location or remote.
