We’re officially opening!

Hello everyone! It’s been a long road to get where we are now but I’m finally getting the pleasure of making quite possibly the most important announcement in our company’s history!

We’re officially opening full time, no appointment required, from 11am-5pm Monday-Thursday starting Monday, January 3rd!

We won’t be hosting any special ceremony or celebration to commemorate the occasion…. on our opening day that is! We’ll be getting a visit from the Stephens County Chamber of Commerce on Monday January 10th to celebrate our “official” induction into the Chamber of Commerce! We’ll be having a ribbon tying ceremony at 10am that Morning, come by and see us for a meet and greet with our team! After that we’ll be open until 5pm that afternoon to serve you!

I hope to see you there and can’t wait for the future of our business!

How’s it Going?

Hello everyone! It has certainly been a while since our last update and I know it’s seemed quiet on the surface, but believe me, we have been busier than ever! We have even taken on our first major business customers. This is an important step to solidify our position in the local market, meaning we are here to stay!

We haven’t yet had an official “grand opening” but that doesn’t mean we’re not open to the public! Due to personal and scheduling reasons we’ve been doing work primarily by appointment, which brings me to our first major improvement!

Online Booking

We now accept appointment bookings completely online!

With our new online portal you can book whenever and wherever you like without having to make time for a phone call or to write an email! The system automatically determines available times based on our hours, other scheduled appointments, and company holidays. It will definitely serve as the most comprehensive source of availability information. Don’t worry, we still do booking over the phone and email so we’ll put your information into the new system for you!

We do ask that business customers please give us a call or an email to book your first appointment. There’s a lot more that goes into managing a business so we want to be able to get as good an idea of your business as we can! Afterwards you can use our business support portal to submit issues and we will schedule for you accordingly!

Pricing Table

That’s not the only update to our website!

We now have a handy pricing table available right on our website! Our pricing is primarily billed by hours required. Our pricing table shows our hourly rates for many of our onsite and in store services! Most in-store jobs are billed for 2-3 hours depending on the complexity of the repair. Most onsite jobs take between 1-2 hours depending on the scope of the issue. Businesses can, of course, expect longer windows depending on the scope.

Virtual Reality Experiences

This finally brings me to our last big change in recent weeks!

We are almost ready to start offering virtual experiences in our store with our new Oculus Rift VR system! This was chosen to open up a new avenue for customers to experience this relatively new technology without having to purchase and set up their own headset. We are planning to offer both short and long experiences or even timed sessions for users to do whatever they want during their time.

While it isn’t available in our online booking quite yet, we are looking to start offering this service as soon as Thursday, December 9th.

Conclusion

If you’ve made it this far, I’d like to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of our relatively new business!

We’re looking to begin more continuous operations right after Christmas if not sooner, opening up the possibility for walk in services. But please, don’t hesitate to make an appointment right this second if you need us. We are open and ready!

Appointment Requirement and Availability Updates

Hello everyone,

We will be making some important changes over the next 2 weeks which will change how our service works on a fundamental level.

Next week, we will be closed on Monday Jul 25th and Tuesday Jul 26th for various personal and business related reasons. When we return on Wednesday Jul 27th, we will start a move towards appointment only service.

From Wednesday Jul 27th to Thursday Jul 28th we will be heavily prioritizing appointments and walk-ins will no longer be guaranteed, however, they will be served if they do not conflict with existing appointments.

Starting Monday August 1st we will move entirely to appointment only service meaning that no walk-ins will be served. We will be accepting appointments online, over the phone, through text, or even by email depending on the specific service you need.

To offset the arguably lessened availability due to requiring appointments, we will also be opening Friday afternoons for appointments to improve our flexibility and lower the barrier to entry.

Please refer to our pricing and terms page which has been updated to reflect these changes. Business customers are not affected by this.

New Update Channel

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since writing here. Don’t worry, we’ve been busier than ever which, if anything, is exactly why it’s been so quiet here.

I want to start reliably posting updates to this page about new products, services, or operational changes. Hours can be updated on Google or Facebook but their post system isn’t exactly the greatest.

In starting this, I would like to make our first operational change announcement. We may be opening later than usual today to make room for internal business obligations.

I hope to see you soon!

In The Final Stretch

Hello! I’m writing once again to give another much needed update.

Right now we are very close to our big day. Once again, no definitive dates at this point but we are just finishing things up. Our renovations are at least 98% complete and all we have between us and the public is some finishing touches and a code inspection! We’re also working to have our business appear on Google Maps and we should have a permanent listing by the end of the week!

You may have noticed some big changes to our storefront in the past two weeks since our last update. We finally have our very own logo in the front windows, some curtains to keep it cool when we’re closed, and even some LED lights in the left bay to give a flashy look at night!

Our storefront, now complete with new window vinyl.

In addition to the obvious exterior changes, we’ve been hard at work inside to renovate the old building and usher in the new style that will become our home! This is where I would like to offer the very first public look into our front room! It’s not entirely complete yet, but well beyond presentable.

Our front room, not quite entirely complete but well beyond presentable.

All in all, we’re getting oh so very close and I can’t wait to see you soon!

Getting Closer to Opening

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to give a little update on what’s been going on recently.

We’re slowly but surely reaching the end of our much needed interior renovations! The front room of our office has transformed entirely from what it once was. I can’t share photos of the inside quite yet but I’m excited to show it off at our grand opening-

About that, grand opening! I don’t have a date quite yet, but I’ll post an announcement as soon as I get a definitive time frame. We’ll be having a meet and greet with everyone who’s involved with the company and start taking our first walk in orders. We may even have some special deals for anyone who decides to come visit us on our first day!

Until then, you may have noticed a coming soon banner has appeared in the front window of our office!

Our storefront, currently with a coming soon sign in place of where our logo will soon sit.
Our front door with our new open sign, address, and debit card vendor stickers.

We’re finishing off some of the typical signage you might see around a store. That even includes having custom made vinyl wrapping made for the window with our branding! We’ll also be repainting our parking lot markings and moving the parking stops. In addition to this we’ll also be cleaning up the sidewalk and washing the outside of the building.

Even though we’re not open to walk ins yet don’t be shy to give us a call or send us an email! We are ready to serve even if we can’t allow walk ins yet. If you’re not sure how to get in contact with us, all of our contact information can be found right at the top of our home page!

Even if you know how to contact us, you may be wondering, what exactly do we do? The answer is pretty simple, do you have a computer problem that needs solved? If you answered yes, then you already know exactly what we do. From consulting for any number of IT related matters to simple computer repairs and software issues we are a one-stop shop for any of your IT needs! The best part of it all? We’re local and right where you need us to be, close to home.

The future is without a doubt very exciting and I sincerely hope to be seeing you soon!

~From our team to your family~

End of the Month – July

Hello everyone, today I’m going to be summarizing what exactly has been happening with the company as of late and what this means for you! Started as a sole proprietorship in 2019 and officially formed into a limited liability company on June 21st 2021 we are very proud to announce the next chapter of Peeples Computer Services’ history. On July 9th we finally secured ourselves a place to carry out our business at 500 Big A Rd, Toccoa, GA 30577. You may know this location for a history of automotive businesses from window tinting to car audio systems. Right across from “That’s A Great Deal” and right where US 123, E Currahee St on into town, intersects Big A Rd I think we found a nice and convenient location to cover Toccoa.

In the past month we’ve been doing a great deal of renovations to the building to get everything up to our standards as a company. Let me say personally that it was what most would call a ‘fixer upper’ but I’m excited for customers to finally see the amount of work our wonderful team of talented individuals has accomplished in such a relatively short time. We still don’t have a definitive opening date at this time but we’re hoping it won’t be very long. In addition to the already short wait, if you’re outside city limits we’re more than happy to serve you on a pickup-dropoff or house call basis and we’re in the process of procuring all relevant licenses to serve customers in the city. At the same time we will also be using part of the building to host a small retail store with homemade and antique items, so feel free to browse while waiting for your computer repair.

No matter how you see it I think we can all agree the future is exciting. We can’t wait to open to the public for good and welcome customers into our newly renovated office with a talented team ready to help.
