Jimmy, our favourite Swede, has returned from Sweden refreshed and raring to go.

He has renewed his love for mountain biking, but is sadly shaken by Melbourne weather. Fair enough really, just look at those photos!

The view from Jimmy’s father’s house.


We would also like to announce that we have signed with a new partner, MB Recycling.
They take all computers, notebooks, mobile phones, printers, cables etc, and recycle them for us.
As our clients, you can give all of your unwanted electrical devices to the visiting technician. They’ll bring it back to our office and add them to the collection here that’s headed for MB Recycling.

If however you have a lot of items (more than 10 – 15 computers or so), we can organise MB recycling to get in contact with you directly. This means that they can organise a collection directly with you (the client). All you need to do is give us a ring, and we can ask MB to give you a call.
