So I am thinking of starting a small computer repair business that I would operate out of my house. It would mainly involve going to people's houses to fix thier problems there, so it would be small problems like a few viruses ect. But what would I need to do this? I'm thinking that I will need a few disks like the Ultimate Boot CD, a data recovery tool, Windows XP and Vista install disks, and whatever else you guys think would help. I would also need things like a virus-removal program (I'll probably go with AVG since it's free), but I know that some viruses block the installation of virus programs, and thus I would also need to have something that will let me run a virus-removal without installing anything. And I have no idea what sort of warware, if any, I would need. It is things like these that I need/want suggestions for. I have about $60 to spend but I'd rather keep things free, preferably without pirating anything (since I may run into the odd customer who cares about that sort of thing) but if I need to I will. As stated above I really don't have any money and thus I would like to get this going soon, but I always like to have input from people who know what they are taling about. Also, not to sidetrack from the main topic, but about how much would be reasonable to charge people? I know it depends on what I am doing but I need things like a base fee and an hourly fee. I was thinking about $40 base fee plus $20 an hour, would that be too high? I'm not sure how much people are willing to pay a 14-year-old kid for this sort of thing. Thank you.
