Mike Ashby Comms is operated by Michael Ashby t/a Mike Ashby Comms. I am a sole trader that has a career spanning some forty years within the radio communications industry. I offer a flat rate repair service for most makes and models of handheld two way radios as well as repairs to licence free walkie talkies and six way bank chargers.
Based in Basingstoke, the repair service is offered UK wide and equipment can be sent via mail or courier service. Clients include schools, colleges, individuals, farmers, pubs, hotels, business small and large to name a few.
I have been asked why my repairs are so cheap. Well firstly, I operate from a very secure premises, where the rent is most likely 50 to 80% less than many major players have to pay. The rent includes electricity and business rates, so a massive saving. As a self employed person, I don't have staff that get leave, pension contributions or company cars. So my overheads are really low and this allows me to charge far less for repairs. I have worked for companies all my life, got tired of that at my age, hence started out on my own.
