Piecemeal

Piecemeal

I offer repair on an à la carte basis. Prices are informed by years of performing these repairs at different rates and different shops. I’ve deliberated long and hard about what is fair to you and what I need to survive.

Feel free to contact me to ask about any services not listed. I recommend opting for a full tune up if you need more than 3 piecemeal services, the value goes way up when you bundle these.
