How do I get a quote?
Just fill out our online form and a tech will get back to you within 24 hours. Alternatively, you can drop your gear off in store if you live locally. We still suggest starting with the online form, but we’re happy to check your gear in as well. If you plan to ship, we highly recommend starting with the online form.
How much are repair quotes?
FREE! We offer free online estimates. If a repair is not possible on site and we have to ship to another authorized repair shop (likely the manufacturer), we still offer an estimate before any work is performed. A declined estimate fee of $35 does apply if you decline the estimate and want the gear returned otherwise we can recycle the gear for free.
How long will my repair take?
We here at Perfect Image strive to provide you with the fastest service available. Generally, repairs are completed within 1-3 weeks. However, parts delays can significantly delay a repair. The best thing to do is respond to our estimate and communications quickly and stay in touch with the tech working on your order. They will be able to give you a better update once they have the gear in hand and know what’s going on. Sensor cleanings, lens cleanings, calibrations, film camera cleanings, film camera light seals, and firmware updates are completed within 1-2 business days.
Is my camera or lens worth a repair?
Repair costs can sometimes approach the used replacement value for your equipment. Keep in mind that servicing your equipment, even at equivalent cost, has a major advantage. Instead of equipment with an unknown history, you will have serviced and warrantied equipment with a good chance of a longer life ahead! With that said, we’re always upfront and honest with you about cost and if something is beyond economical repair. Everyone has a different budget which is why we provide free estimates so you can decide if a repair is right for you.
