Living with IT was created to deliver a more nurturing, patient service. Our aim is to take the ‘GEEK’ out of your computer problem and replace it with a patient, trusted fix that is timely and hassle free.

We understand our customers have busy lives and we know that it can be a painful experience to get a computer fixed, particularly when you are not an expert. You can feel stressed and unsure if someone is taking you for a ride and ripping you off. I know nothing about cars and I dread getting my car repaired, luckily I have an excellent mobile mechanic whom I trust to do the right thing by me and who is available when I need him to be. We are trustworthy, and available to our customers. We go beyond our customer’s expectations at every chance we can get.




Living with IT is a cooperative of extraordinarily talented technicians that combine their talents to meet each of our customer’s unique requirements.
No technician knows everything about computers and so a team is on hand to select the right technician for your job. Some technicians are allocated
