What allows Utopia to boast that it can offer a better service than our competitors, online or on the high street?

We could mention the Customer Service diplomas that our sales and system building staff have, or perhaps the on-going training that our team must undertake. But at the end of the day, we think it comes down to the fact that all of our team are dedicated to giving our customers the best service possible and are genuinely extremely passionate about what we do. We all love computers and we want you to love them too! You’ll even find us often talking to our customers on Facebook, Twitter or over email out with our opening hours, simply because we enjoy our work and don’t see it as an ‘un-needed hassle’. This passion for supplying the best possible kit at the right price means that you can be assured that you are in the right hands when you buy from us!

So, why not try us out? If you have a question, email or drop a post on our Facebook or Twitter page, test our answers out against the competition. We are confident that we will exceed your expectations!

Our Story

Utopia Computers started building custom PCs back in 1993. In those days we were established out of the need for a computer builder who could supply a bespoke, great performing PC that would not break the bank. On day one it was decided that we would do everything in our power to ensure that our PCs were built to a higher standard than any of our competitors and we would look after our customers with more care than any other PC builder could. Today, we’ve carried on that concept by producing elite, custom built PCs backed up with almost 20 years of knowledge, experience and national award-winning service & support.

Our customer service has always been the core value of our company. This has seen customers from all over the UK continue to return to Utopia repeatedly for their computer requirements. Our outstanding service and attention to detail has not gone un-noticed within the industry. It has allowed us to win multiple industry awards such as the PCR Best Service & Support in the UK, UK’s Best Independent Retailer and UKs best retail experience.

Living Wage Employer - Scotland's First Computer Manufacturer

In September 2014, Utopia Computers officially became a Living Wage Company. The Living Wage aims to establish a basic standard of living for workers across the UK. Utopia is committed to its entire team and believes that in order to build the best PCs and provide the best service we need to commit to our whole team. Utopia Computers is currently the only system builder in the UK to be officially accredited as a Living Wage company.

Whilst there are clear benefits to employees, research from other companies who have implemented a living wage has identified benefits for employers including easier recruitment and retention; higher quality staff; better attendance; better productivity, motivation and loyalty; and a better quality of service for customers. This is just one of the many commitments Utopia has made to ensure we are the best at what we do.
