Retirement is boring and I'd like to start a small buisness. Is there any need for (1.) an air conditioning installation & service co., (2.)security alarm installation co., or (3,) a wiring, computer networking/sound system installation co?

Your (2) idea- a security alarm company might do well. There's definitely a need here.

Oh boy! Where were you when I needed you? I just paid BIG money to bring a technician out from Belize City to install 2 split unit air conditioners in my building here on Caye Caulker.

I found two air conditioning companies in SP: James Ritchie and Magnatech Ltd. and one in BC: A.E.S. Ltd. so the field might be a little crowded. I couldn't find anyone installing security alarms. Doesn't anyone have security alarms in SP?

Very few alarm systems. Still using watchdogs to protect the homes. Lots of gringos would likely buy a system if you'd install and maintain it.

We had an alarm system put in a couple of years ago and it has thwarted several breakins. Don't think the company in Belize City is still in business. Think it would be a great business. I know several contractors who would like to install them in the building stage. Would sure like to have someone here for maintenace too.

Alarms + CCTV = winner. Especially if linked to an electronic watching service.

The Major and I have discussed the alarm business. Good on you if you decide to pursue. There's a need...

Any recommendations as to a good customs broker? I'll be importing residential and light commercial security equipment, CCTV, computers, etc.
