Lead Time

We are regularly “snowed under” with work and parts can take time to deliver, so lead times of third party repairs can creep up 2 or 3 weeks but in this event, we will do our utmost to keep the client advised of progress.

Please Note

Some equipment is problematical due to unavailability of spares, lack of schematics or labour intensive disassembly that precludes a cost effective solution. Badly serviced, bogus, bodged and/or imported equipment bought via the internet can not merely prove difficult to service or convert to UK operation but can actually prove dangerous, with faulty power supplies or deficient earths, so ensure you always buy from a reputable supplier or at worst get a sound money back warranty when taking a punt online. We therefore reserve the right to decline the service of some equipment.
