How does it work?

Repairs by Post Photographic equipment for repair should be accompanied by our completed Repair Form with the fault thoroughly described. Using our repair form you can request a free door to door courier collection. Due to post-brexit courier problems we are currently unable to arrange collections from Northern Ireland. We are trying to get this service back up and running. Until then our customers in NI can arrange their own deliveries to us and we can return repaired equipment to Northern Ireland via our tracked UPS service.
Completed repairs can be shipped by secure next-day courier direct to your door, just call the service support team who will arrange return shipping.
