No payment is required until the work is completed and you are happy.

That depends on the repair. We try to work as efficiently as possible, but repairs often take unexpected turns that require further work. If you need work done but are on a deadline, or have to travel from a great distance, please call and we can make arrangements to get the work done to suit your needs.

There is only one way to find out, and that is to bring it in and let us have a look at it. We can tell you what it is, what it needs, and most importantly, if it makes sense to spend the money on the repair.
