NOTE:  This website is simple because I have a few clients who still use dial-up and I want everyone to be able to access this website.

Since June of 1999 we continue to service 250+ businesses and residences in the Central Florida area.  Chren Enterprises specializes in on-site computer service and consultations.  With our new remote services option, we can now fix your computer issues that much faster and with a quicker response time.  We will fix any PC or MAC based operating system and the corresponding hardware on a PC.  Desktops, laptops, workstations, servers, phones, printers, routers, modems, scanners, cameras and anything else that works with a computer…

WE DO IT ALL!

Please call 321-229-6317 for an appointment. Our response time is no later than 8 hours for businesses and 24 hours for residential clients.  Our rates are as follows:

Business and Residential            $90.00                 Per Hour             $0.70 per mile driving charge

Remote When available              $  1.50                Per Minute         no driving surcharge

A Quickbooks invoice will be mailed or emailed afterward.

We now accept every major credit card:  AMEX, VISA, MASTERCARD, and DISCOVER.  Onsite clients sign the credit card authorization form when using a credit card.

For remote jobs, just make sure you have a working internet connection, sign up with the free logmein.com remote technology service and we can remote into your system with your permission and fix most of your computer issues in less than an hour.  Instead of the normal hourly rate, clients are only charged for the time spent in their computer remotely.  It is safe, reliable, and fast!
