Wanting to start a PC build/repair business
#1
so I've got 3 days during the week of time to do whatever the hell I want and I figured hey maybe I should see about setting up a local-ish business where I build PC's for people and deliver/set them up on site for $$$, anyway that's the idea I'm thinking I want to do, does anyone have experience with this sorta thing and could offer some advise?

I don't have experience, but I was considering the same thing. Even the technical guys I know still have someone else build their computers, so there's money to be made.

indeed, I still need to see about getting an ISDN though, business tax number, and register my company but once I do that it's simply a matter of advertising right?

The margins are pretty tight these days in that business. Would there be a particular niche that you'd be targetting?

mostly that I can undercut the bigger guy in everything but cost of parts.

that and there really is no PC repair shop here in town besides best buy which just tells you to go buy a new computer

there is however 3 mac repair places.

Unfortunately it didn't go through, couldn't get the startup capital.

these days I buy broken consoles and repair them to sell as refurbished to make extra money outside my job.

Btw, Nintendo switch consoles are pretty easy to repair, they've only got a few common points of failure that are easy to diagnose.
