PC World has introduced a 'PC MOT' service into its stores to enable consumers with older PCs to get the most out of their systems.
The service, available at all of PC World's 73 stores nationwide, costs GBP39.99 and includes free installation of any upgrades as well as an anti-virus scan, Y2K check, diagnostic report and valet.
"The technician carries out the test with the PC owner at his side," explained Martin Dalgleish, marketing director for PC World.
"This builds up trust, and enables the technician to give advice on areas such as file management and defragging the hard disk."
PC World trialled the service in selected stores for several months before launch, and Dalgleish said the response was "incredible."
