Starting a computer repair company

If you are looking to start up your own business as a computer repair or computer services shop then you will need to consider exactly what aspects you will deal with. Computers can be a very vast subject and knowing exactly the services you offer up front can make life a lot easier as well as ensuring your customers know your capabilities.

You may hear people say they have a problem with their computer, which may actually turn out to be an issue with the internet. Some computer service and repair shops offer a wide range of services that cover everything from hardware repairs up to email and networking issues.

It is vital that you set up a pricing structure to work off when doing any work especially that which may mostly involve labour time. It is important to be able to work out a quote for your customer and then to note down the hours you have spent on it to track that you are charging the correct amount. Sometimes it can be hard to identify what the issue is until you get to have a good look round, so you may charge a small fee for diagnosing the issue first.
