The PC PAL Franchise is the UK's leading provider of PC Repair and Support Franchises, providing on-site computer services to homes and small businesses.
We offer the most comprehensive, proven and best-supported opportunity to start your own profitable business in the rapidly growing and lucrative PC Repair and Support markets. PC PAL are looking for hardworking and ambitious people to join our franchise network, helping to serve the thousands of customers who are already choosing PC PAL to solve their PC problems!
PC PAL’s Winning Formula
1. Huge Demand - Recession Proven!
PC repair is a fast growing market, and with the new ‘make-do-and-mend’ culture demand is growing even more rapidly as people find it less affordable to buy a brand new PC, and get their current one repaired or upgraded instead. Our thriving company-owned franchise broke several trading records in the first quarter of 2009, seeing a huge 57% increase in turnover on the previous year! We’ve proven that the PC PAL system works. We’re currently achieving more than £65,000 in sales in a single territory!
2. Satisfying Customer Demand
There is currently a lack of computer repair firms offering the service our customers are demanding. We have developed the PC PAL system to satisfy these demands and you can use it just as we have done to grow a successful business in your own area.
3. High Level of Repeat and Referral Business
Virtually everyone owns at least one PC – and they frequently go wrong. So, as a PC PAL Franchisee, you can do an excellent job for a customer and they will still need your services on average 3 times a year, for a new problem every time!
4. PC PAL’s Trade Secrets
We know what works and what doesn’t for this business. We know why our marketing works and why our competitors’ often doesn’t, why our brand is so memorable, why our service is the best and how to keep those customers coming back. Our training covers all our trade secrets to enable your business to be a success.
5. Protected, Memorable Brand
It’s hard to miss our branding! Many people have commented on how distinctive it is, which makes us stand out from the competition. Our logo is also a Registered UK Trademark.
6. Unrivalled Training and Support
We equip you with leading industry qualifications, as well as our own PC PAL Training compiled from thousands of hours of real-life engineers’ experience!
Would it Suit Me?
We are looking for:
Computer enthusiasts who are looking to turn their hobby into a profitable business and a good income.
Existing computer engineers who are fed up with working for somebody else and want to earn real money for themselves. (And, if you are already suitably qualified, we will even reduce your joining fee!)
Managers who would like to build their own business in the highly lucrative home computing sector – even if they have no experience of computers themselves.
We will make every effort to help you to make a properly informed decision on whether or not this exciting business is right for you.
Mobile or Manager?
Once a successful business is created in the first territory, the more ambitious Mobile Engineer may want to expand and build a bigger business across multiple territories, by employing PC Engineers. Enter the Hub Manager!
In this business model, we help you to recruit and manage your team of engineers and roll-out the single model business across a wider area. It would also suit non-engineers who want to invest in the PC Repair business but won’t want to be the one repairing the PCs!
A Mobile Engineer will directly serve a population of around 180,000. If you work hard you could target around £35,000 turnover in your first year, £45,000 in you
r second year and £60,000 in your third year. Hub Managers will be able to bolt-on additional territories to the first Mobile Engineer territory as and when they expand. As soon as engineers are employed, additional PC PAL Management Training is undertaken. Each additional Mobile PC Engineer should contribute about £50,000 to £60,000 each to annual turnover.
The Franchise Package
We’ve developed an unbeatable turnkey package to allow you to hit the ground running and which costs £19,999 + VAT for a Mobile Engineer. This includes:
Exclusive marketing rights in your chosen territory of 180,000 population.
A comprehensive PC Repair tool-kit including laptop, software, diagnostic tools and initial stock of parts.
A marketing and launch plan tailored to your area - we don’t have a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach like some franchises.
Your first directory adverts for Yellow Pages, The BT Phonebook and Thomson Local.
Our unrivalled step-by-step training and support package with on-site experience included.
Dedicated and comprehensive online knowledge-base built from 1000s of hours of real-life, on-site problem solving.
Technical support over the phone and online whenever you need it, so you never feel on your own.
Hub Managers can bolt-on additional territories for just £10,000 + VAT, giving exclusive marketing rights in a further 180,000 population. 'Marketing' and 'Engineer' bolt-ons can then be purchased as and when each area comes on stream, thereby improving cash-flow during the expansion phase.
Training and Support
PC PAL have partnered with the UK's leading provider of IT training courses and services, to carry out the internationally recognised CompTIA A+ and Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST) training.
Our own PC PAL System Training Course is held at our Head Office where you will learn all you need to know to get your business up and running successfully.
