One of the most enjoyable aspects of having a computer repair business is being able to help others out of computers that they cannot repair. Because they know you are dedicated to customer service, they trust you will take the time to determine if the system is good enough to be installed with a laptop or desktop computer. There are many reasons why people buy and then do not use their computers.
The most frustrating thing about computers is they tend to die on us as soon as we put them away. It is common to see computer owners go from home to home fixing problems or filling them with bad applications before they need to be completely fixed. There are some tips to help you avoid this.
Important first. If you do not know what kind of model of the computer is, what size it is, how many times it has been repaired, and what operating system is installed, first you should get a data and printer list of the computers being sold. Then you should get a price list. Take a look at this and be sure to verify that it is correct, especially if someone is selling the computer for less than they paid for it.
If you do have the data and printer list, you will be able to locate information about all of the computers being sold.
You will also be able to check the price to ensure it is the right price. This can make the difference between whether you should accept the price or not.
Another reason to go to this point is to find out if the computer is right for the person buying it. If you just simply want to sell it, you may not get very many bids. Be sure to look over the price, model, and capabilities of the computer being offered. You may be getting a great deal, but it may not be the right one for the buyer. Make sure they know the specifications and read through the spec sheet to make sure they are correctly stated.A great place to look for a computer is online. It is easy to find a lot of websites that sell refurbished and new computers for good prices. If they do not have this information available, do a search in Google or any other search engine to find a site that does.
You can also find great place to look for a great price.
Visit sites like eBay and Craigslist and you will be amazed at what you can find for such a low price.
Finally, the local electronics store may have an “all day” computer repair event. Many stores will have people waiting for their computers to be repaired. This is great for your business and even better for the person who has the system.
If you do not know if the previous customer is telling the truth about the system being great, try to follow up with them. Ask them to send in the receipts for the equipment.
- Ensure the records show the system was purchased and should be good to go.
- Ask them for more information, but also ask them if they have any more info about the system’s compatibility with the computer they will be buying it with.
- Do not ever think you know everything about the machine you are replacing it with. Follow these tips to help you in the long run.
