1-800-GeeksOnTime Announces "The Smartest Choice" Promotional Tour

The largest independently owned provider of onsite and remote computer services, also known as 1-800-Geeks-on-Time and www.geeksontime.com, is getting the word out to thousands of (what-are-bound-to-be) curious onlookers that it offers "The Smartest Choice" in technology solutions when it launches its "The Smartest Choice 2005-06 Tour." Illustrating the point with thousands of dollars in prizes and giveaways, the 1600-mile tour will take the company's new 1-800-GeeksOnTime 98-inch convertible SMART Car (aka Swatch Mercedes ART) en route from its headquarters in Lynden, Washington to Phoenix, Arizona, the company's Southwest hub.

During the 1,600-mile trek, the 1-800-GeeksOnTime SMART Car driver will be taking photographs of people at destinations along the route. Those photos will be posted on the web site at www.thesmartestchoice.us. According to 1-800-GeeksOnTime Founder/CEO Venus McNabb, "When people claim their contest photos on the web site, we'll enter them into the drawing where they stand to win all kinds of wonderful prizes. One lucky winner in the company's small business division will receive an IT network makeover, the company's signature specialty, worth more than $10,000. With a network makeover, small business owners receive premium-level consultation to set up a network, and make their business data secure, virus-free, and safely archived using state-of-the-art technology. Other prizes include a notebook computer, Microsoft 360 system, PSP system, iPod Nanos, certificates for free service calls, subscriptions for ongoing computer remote support, and numerous computer-related items." Drivers will also be giving away thousands of promotional items at each destination along the route.

McNabb says, "The selection of the SMART Car as our company's signature vehicle reflects the 1-800-GeeksOnTime's keen sense of choice in technology. The SMART Car epitomizes groundbreaking new design in automotive technology -- being manufactured from a high percentage of recyclable materials and getting nearly 60 miles per gallon. 1-800-GeeksOnTime's entire approach to computer and IT support is just as innovative. Our focus is not only helping fix problems, but on preventing problems before they even occur."

The 1600-mile journey starts Thursday, October 6, 2005, and concludes Wednesday, October 19, 2005, with stops at key destinations on the Pacific Coast. The company is planning additional tours to New York City, Chicago, and Washington, DC. In total, the company plans to have four SMART Cars in the field by 2006.
