Full Description



Purchase high quality secondhand goods. Use our bespoke system to ensure you only buy goods with high income potential. Re-sell to a wide range of consumers.


BASEO (Buy and Sell Electronics Outlet) was established in 2011. Our sales have grown year on year to £2 million since opening our flagship store, and we have since opened three further stores. Our concept is simple: we buy electronic goods from owners who no longer want them, and then make use of them in an effective and environmentally sound way: by reselling them to a new owner.

BASEO is an indispensable business for our consumer base in both good and bad economic times. This is because in good times, consumers are buying many more new electronic goods and passing their old ones on for resale to us. In bad times, people are looking to both buy and sell goods at reasonable prices. We accept only quality, functioning products, and we test them ourselves to ensure this before we re-sell to customers. For added peace of mind, we offer a twelve month warrantee.

Joining Us

The full investment in your BASEO franchise is dependent on the size of the store you decide to open. In general, the initial franchisee fee is £15,000, which includes all training for you and your staff, support for your launch, an operations manual and a website.

Total investment is approximately £60,000 – £120,000, which includes your store set up, shop fit, equipment and stock.

Benefits of Becoming a BASEO Franchisee

Using our bespoke management system means that our franchisees can accurately identify the item being offered for purchase and determine the value of it. Our system also enables you to let other stores and franchisees know what you have in stock, so that you have a second market to sell to.

B4.jpgA BASEO store can operate in relatively small retail premises of approximately 600 to 800 square feet.

We focus on a core line of electronic items: computers, games, mobile phones, and as such, you do not need to buy any item which you do not see a market for – so you will have no need for excess storage space, and need only stock items you specifically know will sell well.
