While we never charge for estimates on routine repairs such as new bridges or rehairs, complex restorations of antique and badly damaged instruments necessitate a significant time commitment to estimate. As a result, we charge a nominal fee of $25.00 for repair estimates. Should the customer elect to proceed with all or part of the estimated repairs, this $25.00 fee will be credited towards repair costs, making the estimate free.
Included in repair estimates will be a complete list of all repairs necessary to bring the instrument into the best possible playing condition. After making a complete list of necessary repairs, we can work with customers who are on a budget to determine which repairs are absolutely necessary and which can be put off until later.
From family heirlooms to players' prized antiques, LRVS professionals are confident in their abilities to restore your instruments and bows to the absolute best condition possible.
