Laptop Repair: Setting Up Your Own Repair Service

PC and laptop repair services are among the fastest growing small businesses in the world today. With most laptop and PC users being non-technical people, this service has become essential in the running and maintenance of working environments and also ensuring smooth uninterrupted running for home-users.

Since this is a skill-based career choice, even if you are ultimately going be managing technicians and repair personnel working under you, you must be familiar with the nuts and bolts yourself.

One of the first things to be done is to know your market. Time spent on researching the needs, customer profile, local conditions and your competitors is never wasted. Work towards profiling your ideal customer and the niche that you hope to fill.

The next thing is to know yourself. What are your own skill-sets and those of your partners? You need to draw a clear distinction between tech and non-tech skills like marketing and sales.

Based on this, you can decide your hourly rates, business plans, costs of hiring staff, rentals, publicity etc.

For a repair-service to succeed, sourcing spares is crucial. You have to locate a reliable supplier and fix the shipping and handling rates.

Before setting up, you need to get the required licenses, certifications and insurances. Registering your business name, address and contact details is another important step.

Once you have set up, it is important to constantly explore marketing opportunities, since you may suddenly find yourself in a dry patch with not many jobs on hand and rentals, staff-payments and your own expenses looming ahead.

Networking with professionals in the field is a great way to get help in sticky situations. Keeping in touch with similar set-ups like yours is also a good way of passing along business or getting stuff passed to you. There's room for everybody in this business, so unethical business practices and competition are not the way to grow your services.

You and your staff may have to initially play multiple roles – marketing, sales, service etc. so make sure that you hire people with some amount of multi-tasking abilities. Knowing each one's potential is part of your success.

Constantly upgrading your skills and knowledge will keep your business abreast with the latest developments in the field and this way you won't have to refuse customers who bring in the newest gizmo.

Lastly complete honesty in terms of billing, taxation and following best business practices goes a long way in giving you peace of mind and a fulfilling career.
