Business & Services Directory

The Business & Services Directory is for members of ThinkClassic to find businesses that specialise in computers and electronics. Such businesses may include those that sell older machines, hardware, tools and components, provide diagnostic and repair services or specialise in refurbished or remanufactured systems and components. The aim of this directory is to assist our members with finding the materials and resources they need to maintain, upgrade and repair their vintage computers.

This thread isn't for users to review and comment on businesses. While everyone's entitled to an opinion, we're keeping these threads strictly to listings and information only for the sake of avoiding clutter and legal concerns. We also need to state that ThinkClassic does not officially endorse or have any affiliation with any businesses listed in this thread unless it is explicitly stated otherwise.

Submissions to this thread should ideally include the following information:

  • Business Name

  • Services Offered

  • Country / State / City / Locations Serviced

Along with the following information where it is applicable and available to the public. Please don't include information that the business doesn't wish the public to know (so in the case of a home-operated business that deals primarily via the internet, don't give out their address). If in doubt, consult with the owner or nominated representative of the business first.

  • Address

  • Website

  • Email Address

  • Phone

Feel free to include a short description of what the business offers if you wish, such as information about what machines they service, what components and tools they sell, etc. Be aware that this isn't an invitation to write about your personal experiences with or opinions of the business.

If anyone has any questions or concerns about information in the Business & Services Directory, please contact an administrator. Likewise, any business owners that wish to discuss information contained in this directory, please contact an administrator so we can discuss it further and make any alterations as necessary.
