Case Studies

Name: Peter Wright Company: PMI Computers

Peter WrightI was in the motor repair business for over 30 years until I was diagnosed with cancer.

After treatment I was unable to continue my successful garage business. During the last 10 years at the garage I was involved mainly with fault finding and electrical diagnoses.

For over 20 years I have used my practical skills, including soldering, to repair computers in my workshop. I repair all type of PC’s, laptops, broken screens, faulty power jacks, dvd drives, hard drives, RROD, dvd not reading disc’s, game consoles , flashing of xbox 360 and Sony ps3, PC tune-up, virus removal, LED TV’s and monitors. I will attempt to fix any related product. I offer;

  • a free initial diagnosis with a fixed price repair if possible
  • a warranty against parts and labour for most repairs
  • a local, knowledgeable personal service

Alan says:

‘I first found out about the ‘Enterprise as a Life’ initiative through a friend who’d been through the project and had gone on to start his business. I knew that I had a passion for what I wanted to do, but didn’t know how to go about starting and wanted to know more about the risks. After working with them for about three months I felt they’d given me the extra bit of support and confidence I needed to go on and start trading as a private guitar tutor.’
