Our most basic maintenance includes timing and a basic cleaning of most machines. Lint, dust, some caked on oil, and the like are all things that can gum up your machine over time. So, in addition to timing your machine so it maintains its stitches, we also clean the parts that make sure that timing isn't interrupted.
In-depth Maintenance and Repair
Sometimes there's a little more needed in a machine than just a little TLC. Our in-depth maintenance and repair would include, but not be limited to, a deeper clean and any repairs that are needed. This usually includes the disassembly of some part of the machine to have a deeper clean or a part repaired. Or, say, you have a machine from the early 1900's that has been in an attic for several years. While we might not be able to restore the machine to like-new condition of when it was built, we can take the machine apart and clean the interior to within new working order. For someone who can restore to like-new looks, contact Mumford Restoration, and they will be more than happy to help.
In general, the only machines you need to worry about installation with are industrial machines. They often come in boxes half-, or not-assembled at all as far as table setups go. The machines themselves may also have been knocked out of timing during transport. Our installation fee includes setting up the sewing table, as well as a basic maintenance on the machine. The price of said installation will depend greatly on the complexity of the machine, as well as how thorough the shipping company was to set up the table before shipping.
Since we are located near downtown Raleigh, NC, we tend to service machines nearby. However, we are willing to travel within the borders of North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina as long as you are willing to pay for our travel. Contact our service manager, Nash Page, if you are interested in discussing travelling to your location to fix a machine.
We offer follow-up services for anything that may have gone wrong during our initial work. Up to two-weeks for industrial machines and 30-days for home sewing machines, we'll come back out and give it a tune up up to what was covered during the initial scope of the work. Past that time period, a minimum charge of $40 up to a full work-order will be accrued due at the time of service. This only covers what may have gone wrong with the initial scope of work, not anything that may have come up separately.
