Reel servicing including return courier delivery.

 2017: Mail order reel servicing & prices.

As I've been offering this for a while now I thought it best to update the site with some details for those of you that are not - so - local to Manchester !

You can purchase services through ebay !
(see my listings here: My Current eBay listings  )
You of course, have paypal's guarantee that your payment is secure whichever way you decide. So it works like this:

1. You purchase a 'buy it now' for the amount of reels you want
serviced by using the drop down menu on eBay.

2. You send your reels to me using a service of your choosing. (try parcel2go for prices)

Send to: D Kelly. 19 Strathmere Ave. Stretford. Manchester. M320DR.
 (Callers by appointment please phone)

3. I service the reels, pack them and send them back to you, within 7
days, usually returned using a signed for courier service.

The prices are for servicing ONLY and do not include parts.

I use a signed for courier service which  requires that you sign for it.
The return time is normally 2 working/weekdays, you will be provided
with tracking information for your parcel. Upon receiving your reel(s) I
would generally be able to turn them around for you in 7 days,
please try to allow for this, if I can do them quicker I will, if you
want to check, ring me before ordering. 07784 100 752

To Pay: Simplest way is to either buy through eBay or just call text or email me with your PayPal email address and I'll send you an invoice.

Reel servicing prices August 2016

Reel servicing prices for the remainder of 2016:

An ever so slight increase and simplification, all reel servicing is now back to £15 per reel regardless of quantity, mail order prices will be staying as they are as they are already slightly higher with postage etc so I will include a link to my ebay listing below.

This is still half the price of places like Tackle Box at Sutton, and I can guarantee I do as thorough a job as Daiwa's or Shimano's own service departments !

I service, ALL the old Shimano Baitrunners and Daiwa big pit reels that Shimano and Daiwa now don't !

Every reel is stripped, cleaned, inspected, re-oiled and re-greased and re-assembled . . . . .  all for £15 ! If you live in the north west you'll also be lucky enough to drop them off and benefit from NO POSTAGE!

I am situated 2 minutes from the old Trafford angling shop, if you shopped there you will likely know me ! 5 mins from the M60 junction 7 and 5 mins from the Intu Trafford Centre. I will give you my details when you make an appointment.

 Each reel, stripped down and cleaned thoroughly. . . . . . . .

 All bearings are removed, cleaned and inspected before going back in. 

 All gearing is removed, cleaned thoroughly and inspected for signs of wear before the reel is re-assembled.

Drag washers are also removed and de-greased and dried/inspected and re-greased before re-inserting back into the spool. 

Once reels are re-assembled and ready to collect I will get in touch and arrange a suitable day or evening for you to collect. I accept payments by cash, paypal or bank transfer,

Thursday, 11 June 2015

As of June 2016 . . . . . . .  my reel servicing charges are as follows: 

1 Reel  -  £ 15.00
2 Reels - £ 25.00
3 reels -  £ 35.00 

This is a promo' for locals in the North West who are dropping off and collecting their reels from me, while I attract hits to the blogs and my Facebook page so around August this year they will go back to £15 each, regardless of quantity. 

Even at that, they're STILL near half of the price of the competition . . . . . . .

see for yourself, and you have postage costs on top ........

I am also  now offering a mail order service for those of you further afield, details and prices can be found in my eBay listing here:
The basic way it works is: 

1. You purchase a 'buy it now' for the amount of reels you want serviced.

2. You send your reels to me using a service of your choosing.

3. I service the reels, pack them and send them back to you using a signed for courier service.

The reel services are a touch higher than the local collect prices but I also have packing/couriers and materials to take into consideration, either way, STILL far far cheaper than sending them to 
Tackle Box! 

The reels are returned on a 96hr guaranteed signed for/tracked service using Hermes courier, please allow 7 to 10 days if sending them for work to be completed, often it will be sooner. 
If you would like to phone for turnaround times: 
07784 100 752

If you don't want to use eBay, I can send a paypal invoice instead. If you don't want to use paypal, you can send registered cash/cheque/postal orders subject to clearance, or by direct bank transfer, call or text/mail for my details.

Another quick way to pay is 
e.g. in your browser type: 

to send me payment for 1 reel service with return 
carriage, or whatever the amount is on the end where 26.50 is, this takes you to a secure paypal 
payment page to pay only that amount.  

Prices below are correct as of June 2016, if you need more than 6 reels servicing contact me for a price. 

1 reel including return delivery £ 26.50
2 reels including return delivery £ 43.00
3 reels including return delivery £ 59.50
4 reels including return delivery £ 70.00
5 reels including return delivery £ 80.00
6 reels including return delivery £ 95.00  

If you want to see just how far down I strip reels 
and the type of work undertaken don't forget to browse my posts on my facebook page that is updated regularly ! 

The place to go for reel servicing and reel repairs in manchester and the North West.....

I'm sure by now you will be aware of the demise of Trafford Angling Supplies in manchester, which amongst other things was a very handy location for all the northern lads to have their reels serviced and rods repaired.

All reel servicing is done by Dave, ex-manager at the shop and a rod builder for many years, as well as reel servicing I offer rod building and repair services.

I can service all manner of coarse or sea reels and I service all the older Daiwa & Shimano reels that they will no longer service. 

A full service for any type of reel is just £15.00, reels are normally turned around within a week and I also operate a return mail service for those of you that are not local to Manchester, so the savings are huge compared with some of the others out there offering the same service at £28.50 plus postage.
