Description

Ref 6416 – Leasehold Computer Repair Shop & Accessory Sales
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold computer repair shop and accessory sales business located in a busy and popular area of Batley, West Yorkshire.
Introduction

Computer Repairs Centre has been trading on Bradford Road since 2010. Our client established the business after seeing a gap for this type of business in this area and having plenty of knowledge and experience to share. The business offers a range of technical support and services including pc, Laptop, servicing and repairs along with data recovery, TomTom Navigation Repairs, Remote & On-site Business Support & Website Design. Website Design is What Our client also does but, is Not part of the Sale but you are welcome to offer that.
Computer Repairs Centre has a comprehensive website in place which is included in the sale. A previous service offered on this website was e-commerce – this is currently Disabled but can easily be re-instated by a new owner if desired.
A booking system is in place which allows for all electronic record of receipts, Job history and more since 2012 (For Warranty & information purposes, Invoicing, Quotations and so on). Accessories, Laptops, and other items are also sold via the business’s eBay shop with a very good rating.
Location

Situated on the outskirts of Batley, the business is positioned within a mainly residential area which is very well populated. There are a couple of other local businesses within the locality but no competition. This busy main road location brings plenty of passing trade in addition to the local trade and repeat customer base our client has established. Close by is a Grammar school & High school. Batley is well linked by the M62 and public transport links are excellent. Birstall Retail Park is within a short distance of the shop.
Reason for sale

The business would be ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator with staff or partnership. Due to our client’s other business interests being higher than anticipated & his father on the ground floor to go into retirement (Bargain Appliance Centre). Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
Lease

The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of commercial property lease. The current lease is a rolling annual lease running at a cost of only £85 per week “including” Building insurance & water.
Building layout and design

The business operates from the first floor of a former warehouse. The ground floor is used by our client’s father as a white goods sales operation which will close and give you full access to use the ground floor too. Computer Repairs Centre is on the first floor only but, you will also have the ground floor, and is accessed by secure entrance from the road. The business has excellent signage displayed to the front of the building with additional advertisements on all windows. Inside, the shop comprises of a main sales floor which is well presented and stocked well, and a separate workshop fitted with work tools, soldering tools and so on. In the main shop are a number of wall mounted displays and a customer servery/counter area. There is potential to also use the ground floor of the property if desired – this included in the sale (with no extra cost).
Staff

The business is currently operating with only our client, a part time member of staff and a further six part time students *updated information*. A new owner can expect to work on a full-time basis with our client averaging 42 hours per week.
Financial details

Computer Repairs Centre has traded solidly since opening. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £40,000 with gross profit of £27,000 and net profit of £13,000. Full financial details are available upon viewing.
Business rates

Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable but currently it is “zero” cost for small business rates at this location.
Summary

This leasehold business is very nicely established with a superb customer base, enviable trading position and excellent reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with full use of the lower ground floor (currently Bargain Appliance Centre) & with the introduction of corporate repair work, business website design, TomTom Services, maintenance and the addition of contractual work in these areas. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operator able to push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Full training will be given if required for 2 weeks for free. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £22,000.
