At Howarth we have workshops where highly trained and experienced technicians repair, service and overhaul instruments. We also undertake made-to-measure alterations to customers' specifications. Their services are in great demand and we suggest you call well ahead (see "Contacting us" link on the left) to book your instrument in.
EMERGENCY REPAIRS: Emergency work can usually be accommodated at short notice, but please call before coming to the shop. Minimum charge for while-you-wait pads/corks etc is £10.00 ex-VAT, £12.00 inc-VAT.
We usually have a repairer available on Saturdays. If you are making a special trip please call ahead to arrange an appointment. Normally only emergency and small repairs can be carried out on this day. Larger jobs and services will need to be booked in for a week day.
For a general service your instrument will need to be in the workshops for approximately 2 weeks.
We are reviewing our charges for different levels of work. In the meantime, please contact our repair department to arrange a free assessment and estimate for all work you require on your instrument.
