What do I need to do to get a warranty repair?
All requests for warranty repairs must be accompanied by a dated sales receipt showing where and when purchased. Remember that most warranties say REPAIR or replace at their option, so most items will be repaired and returned to you.
What are the repair charges?
We have very reasonable labor rates which are listed below. All repair charges are the below rates plus any parts that are replaced, shipping, insurance charges and sales tax if applicable. For continental U.S. reel repair shipping is $7.50 for the first reel and $2 per additional reel to be shipped UPS ground plus insurance of $.50 per $100 in excess of $100 in value. Rod repair shipping charges are $10 tube charge; unless customer furnished acceptable tube for return shipping, plus $15 for up to 4 rods 7’0” or less. Rods over 7’0” in length require additional shipping charges, call for quote. Call for quotes of shipping outside the continental U.S. It is hard to give estimates before reels are torn apart and cleaned. We will gladly call with an estimate if you wish but there will be a $15 charge if we do not complete the repairs. However we will always contact you should any repairs exceed 50% of the replacement cost of the reel.
