About us

At Scan we’re all about three things – technology, people, and how we bring them together. For 30 years we’ve been driven by these three passions that run through everything we do.

Family added value

We’re like a family, so naturally we’re friendly, approachable and always here to help. Passionate about what we do, whether it’s tech, service or even just answering the phone. So if you do call us, you can be sure that we’ll always find the right person for you – whatever your query. And with a team of over 200 strong, there’s always an expert on hand to happily share their knowledge with you. From software to hardware to expert technical advice and care, there’s nothing we don’t know about tech – after all we’ve got hundreds of awards, thousands of positive reviews and a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, so we must know a thing or two.

Putting our customers first

We’re strong believers in that how we do business is as important as what we do – it’s what makes us different, it’s what makes us Scan. So we aim to keep you in the loop every step of the way. Our dedicated team ship over 1500 orders a day, with a success rate of 99% – that’s a lot of team players who take pride in doing a great job.

We’re currently experiencing a lot of feedback

We love your feedback, as it helps us to improve, which in turn makes for a better experience for you. We know we aren't perfect, but we strive to be, so if something goes wrong, we’ll fix it, until you’re satisfied with your shopping experience with us.
