Repairs in days not weeks
With shipping your gear off to manufacturers often taking weeks or even months to get cleaned and repaired, we strive for the fastest turn around possible. Many repairs can be completed in a day or 2 and the wait time is often only a few days for diagnostics. For out of town customers we can provide same day service if you book in advance.
The Repair Process
Step #1: Diagnosing the problem
Although we try to give rough estimates on repairs ahead of time, the only way to truly determine the cost is often to disassemble the camera to find the source of the problem. Some problems are easy to diagnose externally but some require considerable diagnostic time. So a diagnostic charge applies to all repairs at time of drop off but is applied to the cost of the repair if it's found economical to proceed.
Step #2: Parts and labor estimate
Once the problem has been diagnosed, an accurate estimate of time and parts cost can be made. We will contact you with the quote and you decide if you want to proceed with the repairs. If you do, the diagnostics fee is applied to your repair bill. We order parts, if not already in stock and repair your camera. Any parts over $50 need to be prepaid before ordering.
Step #3: Testing and return
Each repair is thoroughly tested and evaluated. Once we are confident the unit is good to go we will contact you to pickup the camera and square up the bill. All repairs carry a 90 Day Warranty so you don't have to worry about repeat issues. If the camera has the same issue again in 90 days, it's repaired free. If it can't be repaired you will receive a full refund minus the diagnostic fee.
We got your back
Don't worry about your gear after a repair. We back every repair we do with a 90 Day Warranty!
If you have any of the same issues just let us know and bring your gear back in for free service. If it's found not economical to continue repairing, we will refund the repair and parts costs.
We will be blunt here, we don't do half-assed repairs.
Its preferred to fix something right the first time so its as good or better than manufacturer specifications. Gimmicky glued grips and taped wires has no place in our shop. We have invested a lot into proper diagnostics software, manufacturer grade tools, service documentation and expensive test equipment. We are results driven and have been known to go above and beyond for customer satisfaction. We think it's the only way to do it.
