Our Pentax camera repair turnaround time at present is 3-4 weeks and we can undertake almost any type of repair regardless of damage sustained. It takes time to carry out an overhaul properly and after relubrication, we allow the lubricant time to fully penetrate the shutter mechanism and then recheck the shutter speeds after two or three days. For this reason, we are not able offer a same day service.
We carry a large stock of spare parts for most Pentax classic models, Including parts which are no longer available, even amongst other independent specialists. For example, we still carry a good stock of spares for the K1000, a hugely popular old workhorse. We can also supply reconditioned K1000’s guaranteed for six months at favourable rates.
Our Pentax camera repair pricing structure is completely transparent so you know at the outset exactly what you will pay. We don’t quote meaningless average or “from” prices and believe our repair charges represent excellent value for money with no hidden extras. The prices listed are what you will pay and include parts and labour. Post packing and insurance in most cases is £9.00 for a single 35mm SLR camera body only minus lens, and our prices apply to virtually all repairs we receive. All cameras we receive for repair are fully dismantled, cleaned, relubricated, light seals replaced* using high density long lasting material and serviced to Pentax factory specifications.
