This independent family owned Company is the leading business for TV / appliance repair and installation work in the South West. The work is dealing with TV repair & installations and domestic appliance repairs for many major manufacturers, retailers and insurers of electrical goods such as Dixons/Currys, Argos, John Lewis, , Samsung, , Domestic & General, and numerous local independent shops.

If a customer buys an electrical device or appliance and then needs to have it repaired under warranty or extended guarantee, this company does the work on behalf of the retailer/manufacturer/insurer. The business offers an expert repair service for a wide range of different appliances and is are the only such repairers in their territory, having taken on the business of the local competitors recently.

There are eight technicians who are home based and are dotted around the region. Each employee has a branded van and undertakes 7-10 calls per day. On any given day two or three of the technicians will be workshop based dealing with repairs that cannot be completed in-home. There are a further four administration staff taking calls, arranging home visits, maintaining the diary and ordering / receiving spare parts.
This is a great business for someone wanting to live or re-locate in a beautiful part of the south of the country. It would also make an ideal bolt-on or satellite operation to another repairs and maintenance business that wanted to maximise their call-centre operation.
