    Machine Repair

    Because of Covid we will be changing how machine service and repair works, Hector and his wife, Tammy have been coming into the store and servicing the machines here same day, every second Wednesday, Tammy is high risk for Covid and she can no longer come into the store, so EVERY Wednesday Machines will be picked up from the store and taken home with Hector, they will be brought back the following Wednesday. What this means is there will be a 1 week turn around time.  Machines can still be dropped off or picked up anytime during our open hours.

    You do not need an appointment, just bring your machine in any time. The best plan would be to drop off before 11 am on Wednesday (or Monday or Tuesday is even better)
