Established six years ago, Gentle PC had a mission to offer honest, friendly, and helpful PC repairs in Wellington.
Owner Kaeli Bunt had been building PC’s since she was 16, and after a successful business career qualified as a Network Technician with the goal of running her own PC repair and install company.
The name Gentle PC came after Kaeli fixed a friend’s PC and she commented she had been a gentle technician. The comment became the defining name for the business.
Kaeli has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS); an inherited condition that has left her in pain and often a wheelchair is required to get around. That meant that starting out, she couldn’t go to her clients – they had to come to her.
However she persevered and targeted home users, who enjoyed the quality of her work and the way she treated them: with generosity, openness, and plain simple English.
