Our Story

Welcome to the heartwarming tale of The Ely Computer Centre and Barbell Computing. This is a story filled with inspiration and dedication that I believe will resonate deeply with you, our valued clients.

At the core of this narrative is me, Scott Colling, your esteemed Managing Director. My journey embodies the pursuit of one’s true calling and the realization of lifelong aspirations. I began my professional voyage within the modest confines of a small computer sales and repair shop in Cambridge. My humble beginnings laid the foundation for my career, which ultimately led me to become a distinguished Microsoft Architect, forging connections with renowned IT enterprises and engaging with iconic brands on a daily basis.

At The Ely Computer Centre and Barbell Computing, I am not just a service provider but your steadfast partner in your technological journey, dedicated to your peace of mind and success. Thank you for entrusting me with your needs, and together, we will continue to reach new heights.

My elderly laptop was running so slowly, it was driving me crazy and I dreaded using it. I brought iit to Scott who quickly diagnosed the problems and recommended a cost effective solution. He undertook the work very quickly and efficiently, and I couldn't be more delighted with the outcome. My laptop has been given a new lease of life. I can't recommend Scott highly enough - he is super efficient, knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with.

We were so impressed with our experience at The Ely Computer Centre. The response after sending an email was super quick. The laptop was in the following morning and fixed and back with us 2 days later. We couldn’t have asked for more. Can’t praise Scott enough and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending his services. His rate is very competitive too. We will certainly use him again should the need arise.

A lifesaver! I rely on my laptop for work and mid update, it just froze and wouldn't switch back on. The issue was resolved quickly and thankfully, didn't cost me too much either. Hoping not to have to visit anytime soon 😂, but if I did, I wouldn't go anywhere else 😊.

Scott helped us extract data from an old computer that we inherited which wouldn’t switch on. He was very helpful and knowledgeable, replied quickly to emails and carried out the work within the time and price quoted. If I have any further computer problems I will definitely return for his help.

Outstanding experience with Scott from Barbell Computer! Lightning fast communication, he arrived at my house within a day. The dedication to customer satisfaction and willingness to help were evident from the moment I saw him, accompanied by a genuine smile. He measured, discussed options, and patiently helped me decide on a PC case with new fans. Scott efficiently ordered and fixed everything. The final result was perfect exactly what I needed. Grateful to have found such a dedicated and skilled professional! Highly recommended, Barbell Computer is now my go to for all things PC related.

Great experience with Scott. He was super responsive, came to my house and quickly cleaned up my laptop fans, diagnosed the problem and ordered the new part then returned to fix within days. Really great communicator, clearly knows what he’s doing and a very good price. Will definitely be using him again.
