Based in 47 Liverpool Road, Formby Fones and Computing (incorporating the Southport Apple Centre) are one of the longest established computer retailers and repairers in the Southport area.

Our staff are highly technically trained but are friendly and explain things in everyday easy to understand language.

As Dell partners we sell new both business and personal Dell computers and laptops and offer the full Dell support services directly from our shop.

We also sell all the everyday computer peripherals that you may need including Keyboards, Mice, Cables, Hard Disks, etc. Being a Cartridge World outlet we carry all the most common inks from Epson, HP, Cannon and Brother. If we don’t have your ink cartridge in stock, we can have it delivered to us the very next day.


We are also proud to be an iTecnician Apple Repair centre, and can undertake repairs on all Apple equipment, including MacBook’s, iMacs, iPads, and iPhones. No appointment is necessary, and we offer a same day repair service on iPhones and iPads repairs. We often repair Apple products that even Apple themselves say are unrepairable, and we are certainly a lot cheaper than Apple.

Apart from Apple, we repair all makes of Computers, Laptops, Tablets and Mobile phones. We have a tremendous reputation in Formby with many customers travelling from Southport and Crosby to use our services. We offer a free diagnostic and a no fix no fee service on all items.
