  • I contacted Whitehats through their website and was immediately served by a customer service agent. I briefly explained my concern and gave my contact details. The same day in the afternoon I was contacted by an IT engineer and we scheduled a date for a visit to my apartment. Upon arrival the next day the engineer was polite, professional and confident and got the job done in an appropriate manner. I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Whitehats and plan to contact them in case of any future services. Therefore I would also recommend them for any IT related services.
