  About Us

Company Profile

Originally started over 20 years ago, Computer Bargains is still run by its founder and still sticks to its fundamental principle of providing real value for money products and a high level of customer service and customer support.

Over the years the personal service provided by Computer Bargains has been its biggest selling point, while the company has specialised in providing excellent quality computers - especially laptops and notebooks - at truly affordable prices.

With the help of the company's fully trained and qualified staff you will receive the personal attention needed to provide you with exactly the computer you need at a price that won't hurt your budget. Computer Bargains provides such a quality of service that hundreds of notebooks are sold to satisfied customers every single month.

Computer Bargains has its own showroom facilities based in Manchester and full repair department. You can also order online using our secure server and get the personal service without having to leave your office or home. Plus there's a next day delivery service so you'll get the machine you want almost as soon as you've ordered it.

Recycling of your Old Equipment (WEEE regulation 2006 - Statutory Instrument no 3289):

Regulation 31:
If you purchase an item of electrical or electronic equipment from us (eg: computer, laptop), then you are entitled to return your old item which fulfils a similar function, to Computer Bargains Ltd, for resuse/recycling/disposal. You must return the item to our trading location. Unit 13 Greensway Shopping Centre, 34 Gerard Street, Ashton in Makerfield, Wigan, WN4 9AE within 28 days of purchasing the new item. You are responsible for any transport costs incurred, in returning the WEEE item. More information on WEEE regulations is set out below.

WEEE Regulations:
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
Much of the UKs WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. Computer Bargains Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
For example, if a customer bought a new laptop from us we would accept their old laptop and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:

Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
