Costs force Southland IT shop to downsize

Gore-based system builder and computer repairer Helen Moore has reverted to running her business from home amid unsustainable costs.

Moore Computer Services has had premises on the town’s Main Street for 18 months, but Moore previously ran the business from her home.

She estimates the move back to a home-based business will save $1400 of the $1700 per month she spends on rent and other bills such as power, phone and Eftpos systems.

It will also free her to visit customers to carry out repairs, she says. “[A shop gives you] that central presence, but that’s really the only advantage,” says Moore.

She has managed IT shops before, including one in Auckland.
