Here ya go: Geek Squad Services

Just remember, Geek Squad prices are highly inflated. Especially for the quality (or lack thereof) of service you get.

i've built pc's for my brothers, friends, my friends families, kinda random people all for free. i dont get why you would want to charge someone for something that a 13 year old could do with the right experience.

Now installing a watercooling system, painting the inside of a case/modding a case, setting up a raid array build. i could see myself maybe charging someone for stuff like that

Geeky Squad prices are ridiculous. I got taken the $200 for a Trojan removal. Sadly I was not a geek at the time.

I never did any of these services, it wasnt worth the price, my parents think its better to get an new computer instead, and I heard they sometimes end up making your computer worse than before.

I think Micro Center is cheaper, so maybe compare your prices with them?
