I work on machines of all ages including both old Electro-Mechanical and Solid-State machines made by all manufacturers including; Gottlieb, Bally, Williams, Stern, Sega, Data East, Capcom and Zaccaria to name a few!
For home repairs I currently cover an 80 mile radius of Chelmsford including: Essex, Suffolk, Kent, London, Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Surrey, West Sussex & East Sussex however I am willing to travel further within reason. I no longer offer repair of Electro-Mechanical (EM) machines with serious problems at your home - they must now be booked into the workshop.
I am able to repair most faults your machine may be suffering from at the comfort and convenience of your home. I no longer offer home repairs of EM machines with complex faults, the workshop is here to help those games! A game suffering with complex faults may require multiple repair visits or a trip to the workshop, but I will always try my best to get you flipping again during a home repair visit.
Home Repairs and Deluxe Playfield Services are charged at £40 an hour plus the cost of parts.
Callouts charged at:
Up to 30 miles travel to you is £40

WORKSHOP MACHINE COLLECTIONS
I currently operate from a very small workshop which limits the amount of machines I can work on at a time. Because of this I can't provide storage space for a machine before or after working on it. Keeping a finished machine tomb-stoned awaiting collection stops me from working on the next project.
Your machine MUST be collected from the workshop within 1 week of its completion.
If you wish to use a courier (Martin etc.) a collection date must be set in advance. I provide plenty of notice for when your game will be ready to arrange the courier. Due to previous loss of earnings caused by waiting on couriers, additional charges will be added after holding a game for more than 1 week - Thank you for your understanding!
