AJT Computing was named after the originally intended partnership of Andy, Jim and Tim, but in fact opened as a partnership of Andy and Tim in February 1998. This was the brainchild of Andy, who already traded as Restabit Computer Systems, and had been repairing computers in Waterlooville town centre, in the old Tavern pub. The new shop and the birth of AJT was situated in the Westbrook Centre, Grassmere Way, Waterlooville.
The partnership split in 2000, with Andy continuing alone, and Tim going on to open a separate computer shop in Drayton. Andy was joined by his son Garreth, and friend Beano during these times, with many other staff coming and going (but never quite going) over the years. During the next few years, AJT acquired "NITEVISION" a video and DVD rental business and incorporated it into the store.
Following 10 years of operation from that site, the foreseen impending recession and the continuing increases in rents, the AJT staff began concentrating on mobile repairs, repairing PCs and internet services at customer’s homes. This decision was further encouraged by the near demise of The Westbrook Centre as a retail area, with other resident companies like Pet Doctors, closing their doors.
It was first thought that this would suffice, but the need for a shop-based repair centre became apparent and AJT teamed up with "Comuniqe8" a mobile phone sales and accessories, which was located in Fratton Road, Portsmouth (near to the train station). This is thought to be complimentary, as the communication and computer industries have become more and more interlinked. This also enables customers to drop off and pick up computers and accessories, where home callout is inconvenient. This is proving to be a success, and provides additional cover when Andy is away on one of his many holidays.
So... After many years of dedicated service to many customers, situated along the south coast of England, AJT has now decided to extend its reach and its professional service via this new and exciting website! Offering a line of services to Portsmouth and surrounding areas and the use of a specially formed 'Drivers Database' located right here on this site, designed for easy use and ready to download from anywhere.
