Electronics Repairs BUSINESS FOR SALE!
(well, at least the business assets)
History of the company, etc:
History of the company, etc:
WHY selling?Very few folks now do repair work on older equipment, and few work on audio equipment of any age.....and I have specialized in those areas. I do work on modern electronics. I seem to be constantly swamped with work, with a goodly backlog (Wait List). It's getting to be too much for me. I've cut down my hours, but I still work too much. I'm 84 y.o., and, considering my health status (recurrence of cancer), it's long past time that I should have sold and retired. I'm not going to be around for more than maybe another few years. After I moved from South Lake Tahoe (where this business was located 1972 to 2019), to Carson City in 2019, I expected to be close to retiring....I never expected my new 'hobby' garage-shop would be this busy. I had expected to just do a few repair jobs every month, which would pay for the utilities, and keep me out of my wife's hair...so-to-speak. In other words, I planned for a 'Hobby Business'. It has gotten rather more than that, to say the least.
I should sell this business...or, at least, sell all the parts and equipment, etc. I am very busy, & have to use a Wait List. If you are knowledgeable and experienced, and want to work part time (or even full time), this may be for you. You could continue doing it out of your own garage, full or part time; or, move to a store-front location. Once established, and depending on what you want to work on, you may need to consider having another technician besides yourself, because there is a LOT of work available. I've had to turn down a lot of business. If you wanted to add TV service, you are going to be overwhelmed with work.
You will only need $10K-18K, depending on what you take, and if you need my help in establishing and running your new business. If not sold, I will likely just close up the shop when my health deteriorates too much. Best for me is to sell...to a serious wannabe technician, or tech retiree, or someone with the interest, and some goodly background. I may end up having to contact electronics or other schools, etc., to find someone with serious get-up-and-go-itis.
Contact me if you are interested in purchasing the business assets: test equipment, parts, customer files, etc etc. EVERYthing could be included. Some training, if you need it, could be included. Contact me if you know of someone who may be interested. If I sell to that person, there will be a decent finder's fee.
What could be included?
Basically everything...VERY large quantity of parts, all the test equipment, all the office equipment, VERY extensive repair tools, machinery; all my service files....a filing cabinet of service manuals, diagrams/schematics, etc....etc. I will sign a non-competition contract if you'd want that.
Note that I also have a VERY extensive set of tools in both SAE and Metric, that I used in my long-gone BMW bike business, all those tools could be included, at quite reasonable cost......even the rollaways, etc. There are a lot of tools...and electronics test gear items ...that I don't have in the photos.
I moved this business into my garage, when I moved from So. Lake Tahoe, to Carson City, Nevada, near the end of 2019. I'd been doing electronic repairs at S. Lake Tahoe since 1972. Since the move, I have been up to my ears in work. I'm too darn old to work full days anymore, have more work available than I can handle comfortably, and am only slowly, now, with extra effort, getting caught up on my backlog .....I think I may be able to catch up to a week or two turnaround, by Spring of 2022. Presently I am working 7 days a week.
I have a rather massive amount of electronics parts, test equipment, etc.
I am well-established on the Internet,usually search engines show my shop as #1; and that is for a very large area, not just locally. I am well-established by word-of-mouth. I have not had to use paid advertising in a very long time, maybe around 25 years. I have a top-notch reputation for workmanship, solid warranty, and friendly service. I receive telephone calls every week for TV repair (even though my website, and my Google and Yelp listings specifically say I don't work on TV's)....all of which I turn down....I prefer audio, but TV repair is something you could do, if you wanted-to; I did initially, when I moved to Lake Tahoe a lifetime ago.
I will help you get set-up, and, if you so desire, as a warranty station for a number of audio brands. Since I moved from Lake Tahoe to Carson City, I dropped doing all manufacturer warranty work; I kept some accounts though, and still COULD do certain famous brands warranty work, but I don't want to show this to anyone publicly. I presently am using the accounts for parts purchases, but ...to make this clear....warranty work can be done.
You can work as little, or as much, as you desire....and, ...you can set your own pricing schedule, even well-above my present rates, and that WILL be accepted by the public.
