I am selling my Laptop and Macbook Repair business which I have built up over the last 10 years due to my relocation 200 miles away.
It has been professionally valued at over £130,000 but due to current market conditions with Brexit and the Corona Pandemic I am looking at 50% of is value for a quick sale before the the end of the year. Our shop lease is up in December and will leave it to the new buyer whether they would like to renew this or not (It is an Internal Repair lease which is good). The company is relocatable and we have 5000 active customers on our database around Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Manchester.
As a shop on a busy high street we specialise in Macbooks and business laptops which are professionally reconditioned by ourselves and sold to the public. We are one of the only MacBook and iMac independent specialists in the East Midlands. There are no other official or independent MacBook or iMac repair shops in Derby and we have a strong hold on the market.
I currently have 1 full time Apprentice who is fully trained to Level 3, currently completing Level 4 and capable of dealing with customers face to face and over the phone. They can diagnose and repair laptops, Macbooks and iMacs to an exceptionally high standard. We also have a Part time technician on a flexible contract. I am also offering training for the new owner or their own staff and have also created our own digital repair manuals which will be included.
A handover period can also be offered as I am keen to see the business carry on being successful.
I, as the only director moved away from Derby in 2018 and Ran the business remotely which does work but the stress of travelling and the £500 fuel cost a month is starting take its toll and So it is time to let go and offer the business to someone with as much passion for it that I have had over the last 10 years
In 2018 we took £225,000 over the shop counter alone which is split £91,000 Repairs and £134,000 Sales.
We have just had the website rebuilt and it is fully geared up for Online Sales although it would benefit from someone with More SEO and Selling online experience to push the business even further and reach out to customers throughout the UK and beyond.
We have a gross profit of £103,000 and an adjusted EBITDA of £33,000
We also have £125,000 of retail stock which is enough to keep a shop running for a few years including iMacs, MacBooks and Business Laptops with a Net Value of £55,000 we can either offer this additionally with the sale or we can take this away for sale elsewhere.
I have moved into Specialist field of Micro-Soldering and Component level repair. I am keen to work with the new owners of UKSL in Repairing otherwise unfixable Laptops as this service is not offered in Derby by anyone else.
This would be a great opportunity for an existing company with good stock supply to expand into as we can achieve a much higher markup than most face-to-face or online markets. If you are thinking about starting a computer shop in Derby this would be a great opportunity to inherit our reputation and brand that everyone in Derby and the surrounding areas recognise.

Support and Training:
I am willing to offer staff training where necessary. We have our own digital repair manuals for the more in depth repairs. I am happy to offer a hand over period of up to 3 months to ensure the business continuing success.
