Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Leading Computers Ltd.
Established by our client in 1994, the highly-regarded business relocated to this site in 1997.
Currently run at a pace to suit our clients, the business now comes to the market as our clients wish to retire.
The business offers a full repair service of all PCs and Apple Mac computers including a free diagnostics service, virus, malware and spyware removal, hardware and software repairs, dc connector replacement, computer upgrades, system back up and reload, power pack replacement, data recovery, refurbished laptops and PCs with a home service and collection if required.
Our client has built up a very loyal customer base over the last 20 years and all customer records will be handed over to any new buyer. Supplier contacts and agreements will also be handed over.
When the business was run more full-time it enjoyed a turnover of over £100,000 with business contracts with key companies such as Tesco’s. We believe there is endless opportunity to add to the purely domestic element of the current business and add repairs and maintenance of small local companies looking for ad hoc advice and repairs. It would also benefit the business to add on iPad and mobile repairs including some retail sales of these, also PCs and laptops both refurbished and new.
The large rear workroom can allow 3 -4 engineers to work simultaneously.
State of the art self-manageable website included in sale
Handover offered, ideal opportunity for someone looking to buy established business with endless scope to improve whilst in an affordable long lease agreement.
