Val-U-Computers was formed in July 1993 to supply the local market in Norwich and Norfolk/Suffolk with used computers. Advertising in local papers the business quickly built a reputation for cheap prices supported by good service and support. During the years that followed the business expanded, taking on more staff and acquiring larger premises until it moved to the current location in Rackheath, which is just outside Norwich. Although the main focus of the business has always been selling used and refurbished computers there was a period when Val-U-Computers built it's own bespoke computer systems.
In 1999 Val-U-Computers took the first steps to market it's products on the internet. Progress was slow at first but gradually the company started to sell more and more computers, particularly laptops, on the internet. Val-U-Computers was one of the first laptop companies in the UK to be listed on Google.co.uk.
