Technics 1210 Local Service & Maintenance Including Cost
It is as important as a mixing desk, you need to make sure it’s spinning properly and that all adjustments are working. We see many decks where the height adjusters are stuck, or the decks are not braking correctly. If your deck has been dropped or suffered damage causing the platter to kind of bounce back and forth it’s likely a damaged motor. Generally we’re able to repair these without replacement.

Fast Track Repairs & Conditions
We’re typically able to turnaround a Technics 1210 service locally in Harlow Essex for London, and Hertfordshire in roughly 1-2 weeks depending on the number of repairs currently in.
We can fast track servicing and repairs up to a 6 working day turnaround, the additional cost is + 30% of the bench fee.
We have limits that we will repair upto without further authorisation from you and can be found in our terms and conditions however we do always try to remain economical. If we think it’s going to be unrealistic then we will let you know before you get an incredibly unrealistic bill.
Minimum charged costs and will apply once equipment is brought to the workshop and booked into the system as “received at workshop”. This simply means that this charge applies if we look at the equipment and either it is totally wrecked and or beyond economical repair, it also applies if we are unable to find a fault as it is out time spent investigating and proving by measurements and testing to electronic specifications. In most instances for straight forward repairs the hour is the most you’ll pay but this entirely depends on the fault and equipment.
