Who We Are

Geek Squad is the first national 24-hour task force dedicated to solving the world’s technology challenges. Comprised of highly skilled and specially trained computing Agents, home entertainment installers (GSIs), Autotechs and appliance repairers (GSRs), 20,000 active Geek Squad technicians patrol Geek Squad precincts in all U.S. Best Buy® stores, at Geek Squad stand-alone U.S. store locations and at service centers nationwide.


Geek Squad Chief Inspector Robert Stephens founded Geek Squad with $200 and a bicycle in Minneapolis in 1994. Today, Geek Squad is the preeminent local tech support service.In 2002, Geek Squad entered into joint operation with Best Buy and expanded nationally in 2004 - providing consumers nationwide with a unified, fully owned task force to help them manage their growing dependence on technology.In October 2006, Geek Squad unveiled Geek Squad City, the force’s largest repair site. The Louisville facility encompasses nearly four acres and houses the largest concentration of Geek Squad Agents anywhere on Earth. Geek Squad City is the anchor for a network of Geek Squad service locations that house the technicians who repair the vast array of gadgets people depend on.

What We Do

Geek Squad Agents provide computer support and are readily identifiable by “Special Agent” badges, black pants, white shirts, break-away ties and signature GeekMobile® vehicles. Arriving in decked-out vans, GSIs (Geek Squad Installers) deliver the home theater experience to family and game rooms far and wide, Autotechs answer the call of car electronics fans at install bays within most Best Buy stores and GSRs (Geek Squad Repairers) make in-home appliance repairs.

Geek Squad keeps the streets safe from technological evil. No matter what make, model or manufacturer – or whether you bought it at Best Buy or not, Geek Squad is the ultimate in tech support.
