After contacting us by phone or email and being given an estimate for repairs and approval to ship an instrument to us, the instrument  will need to be packed with view to using the same packing materials and delivery system for the return shipping. If the packing is unsuitable for return shipping,  a re-packing fee will have to be paid before we can return the instrument to you.

We receive instruments by Courier and Australia Post. Do not send your Instrument to us without first receiving approval to send it.  Without approval all shipments are routinely refused, and automatically returned to the sender. 

Persons wishing to come for repairs will need to make an appointment. Some repairs such as Sitar Jawari or Harmonium Tuning can be done during a one day visit. Some of the more complicated repairs will take overnight. Or may need to be left with us until the repair is complete.
