Frequently Asked Questions
HelloTech is an on-demand tech support service provided by our fully-vetted and background checked team of technicians. In addition to a complete range of in-home tech installation and support services, we also offer HelloTech Now Online Support for issues that can be resolved remotely. We’re making technology in the home simple.
HelloTech is available nationwide! If you need service in a more remote area, it may take a little longer than usual to match you with a technician, but we’ll do everything we can to service your request. Thanks in advance for your patience. Our team of techs is growing every day.
We provide a 100% guarantee on our services for 30 days. If you have any problems with the work performed, contact us. We are committed to your complete satisfaction. If we can’t help, you don’t pay, that’s the HelloTech way. If you have a specific question regarding a previous appointment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can reschedule or cancel at no charge up to 3 hours prior to your booking. This is to account for your tech’s travel time to and from your home. Please contact us if you need to cancel or reschedule within 3 hours.
First, select the service you need from the home page. Provide a few details about your issue and the location where you need service.

You can get support right away and we’re available 24/7. When you’re ready to begin, one of our techs will log into your computer to perform your service while you watch the magic happen right before your eyes. Remote services are discounted so not only is it convenient, it saves you cash! If the service you need can be performed remotely, you’ll see the option to select HelloTech Now!

When requesting your service, you’ll provide your availability. Once we’ve found the right tech for your service, you’ll receive a confirmation email which will include your appointment date and time.

We strive for punctuality and don’t want to waste your precious time
HelloTechs come from a variety of backgrounds. They range from full-time tech support professionals to college students looking to make some extra cash. Rest assured, we hand select our techs and only after they have been vetted and demonstrate their knowledge through a series of skills assessments will we send them to your home.
Each and every tech undergoes a complete background check to ensure your safety.
If you need additional service on an existing order, your tech will let our support team know. If you need a new service, you can book online or by phone. Please don't contact your tech directly to book an appointment or make a payment. The HelloTech Guarantee and any warranties only apply to services booked through our system. Additionally, any services arranged directly between you and your tech are not covered by our insurance policy.
We offer a fixed base price for each service. Additional charges for extras are offered for some services. You’ll receive an exact quote during booking.
No, please do not provide payment to your tech. Payment will be applied to your credit card on file. We do NOT accept any other forms of payment such as cash or check.
You’ll be asked to provide a credit card when you request your first service. When your service is complete, your tech will ask you sign to acknowledge the successful completion of the job. We’ll then charge the payment method you provided. If your tech was unable to complete the service for any reason, they’ll inform us and support will be in touch to discuss the options. If you are not satisfied with your service, please don’t sign off as you will be charged at that time. Again, if you’re not happy, you don’t pay!
No tip is necessary. But feel free to thank them for doing a great job.
