Parts In Stock

With 2,000+ Replacement Parts In Stock, we have the parts on-hand that are needed for routine repairs.

Fast Turnaround

Our Normal turnaround time usually ranges from 3-10 business days based on our work load.

We also offer Priority Service with an expedited turnaround time usually of 2-3 days. Priority Service allows our clients to red flag their equipment and send it to the head of the line, expediting the evaluation/repair process to get their unit back quicker.

Average Repair Costs

Every repair is different, but the average routine repair cost for regular service on a fluid head is usually ~$300-$500 parts & labor (~$225-$350 for sticks).

Some repairs might be less, some might be more, this is just an average.  Until we are able to get our hands on the unit, that is the best guess estimate to go with.

For Overhaul pricing, please see our FAQ's

For accessory only, minor repairs (spreaders, pan arms, etc.), we usually charge $50 labor plus parts (extensive repairs will be charged at a higher labor rate).

Labor Charges

We charge a flat labor rate for most repairs, parts are additional.

Flat Rate Labor Charges for routine repairs: $198/section for Regular Service and $297/section for Priority Service.  The Pan, Tilt, Counter Balance and Sticks are each considered a section.

Damaged Poles/Tubes on Sticks/Legs

Cracked or dented poles or moldings can sometimes be replaced on 75mm and 100mm standard duty sticks, otherwise the entire leg assembly will require replacement.  There are multiple factors that go into the repair/replace determination, therefore we can not make that decision until we receive and evaluate the unit.  Individual poles and leg moldings on 150mm sticks, 100mm heavy duty sticks and Hotpod models can generally not be repaired and require leg replacement.
