Book A Repair
** We have limited repair slots available. If you're not able to book, please try again at a later date. We aim to complete repairs within three weeks, although repairs can take longer depending on demand **On this page you can book a home call and arrange to have your sewing machine collected, repaired and returned to your door..!
Three simple steps
FIRSTLY - Book a collection date from the address you provide at checkout. (It is not possible to collect/return on Sat and Sun)
SECONDLY - Tell us the fault or issue you have with your sewing machine.
THIRDLY - Add to Cart, and pay for the collection and return of your sewing machine.
Because we are specialists in our field, we have gained a vast knowledge of the faults sewing machines develop. Our knowledge helps us identify specific sewing machine problems quickly, which enables us to action our team of sewing machine engineers to carry out the sewing machine repair or service at a very keen price.
All our work is fully guaranteed and our engineers have been trained by SINGER, JANOME, PFAFF
The cost of repair/service is from £49.90 (including VAT) for basic sewing machines to £95.00 (including VAT) for advanced embroidery models. All prices, plus parts.
We repair all makes, any age and any condition. We have also built up a large stock of second hand parts to keep the older machines going for many years yet.
HOW DOES IT WORK
- 1. Use this page to book a collection day. Please pack machine securely and give us 48 hours notice of collection day (Saturday and Sunday not included).
- 2. Once we receive your sewing machine into our workshop and have inspected it, we will call you with an estimate for the repair, including any parts if needed.
- 3. If you give us the go-ahead, we will repair your machine and call you again to take payment for the repair. Also at this time we can arrange a return day.
NOTE:In shopping cart please select the zero price shipping option. eg. £0.0
Full terms and conditions
We would ask that you pop a note in with the machine to explain what the fault and also a sewn sample of fabric showing the stitching problem.
Please also send the foot control and power lead, a bobbin case and spool with the machine. In the case of an embroidery machine where the problem is with the embroidery side of the machine, we would also need the embroidery unit and hoop. These are required to allow us to fully test before return.
Our usual repair turnaround is between 5 and 7 days after receiving the machine into our workshop, dependent on parts availability.
If you decide to not go ahead with a repair, we will return the machine to the address first provided.
If you have not allowed a minimum 48 hours for us to book your collection we will inform you as soon as possible for another convenient date for collection.
If we arrange collection and you are unavailable for the collection or you do not allow the courier to collect as agreed, you will be charged to rebook the collection.
If you have booked a collection and wish to cancel you must inform us 2 working days before the intended collection date, this it to allow us enough time to cancel the request with the courier company being used so that no charge is paid. If you don't notify us 2 working days before collection we can still cancel the collection request but it will be to late to cancel this with the courier company and it will be charged a minimum charge of £11.
It is very important that the sewing machine is packed securely for transport by the carrier to prevent any damage in transit. In its original box with original packaging. It is your responsibility to ensure the machine is packed enough to provide adequate protection while in transit. If we arrange either a collection or return, we are unable to insure the machine during transportation unless it has been packed sufficiently in its original box and original packaging.
Please see below for a good example of how to pack your machine for transit if you no longer have the original box and packing. If your machine is delivered to us and on initial inspection is deemed by us to be insufficiently packed and it has received damaged in transit as a result of poor packing, neither ourselves and/or the courier used for the collection can be held responsible and we will be unable to claim for any damages, this may also increase the cost of repair and in the worst case scenario may damage your machine beyond repair. So we ask you please to ensure you take sufficient time and care to package your machine securely for its journey.
*The Book A Repair collection/return is only available to customers within UK mainland and we are unable to offer this service for Large machines (PR/VR's etc.) and large rotary irons.*
Thanks for a brilliant repair service. My 40 year old Singer is now working perfectly for a fraction of the cost of a new one. The collection and return service was excellent and David kept me informed of progress throughout. I would highly recommend this service and would definitely use them again. Many thanks.
I had to return my machine under guarantee. The charge for collection was reasonable and It was picked up when expected. Because of Covid-19 I had to wait over a month for the repair to be done, but the engineer was polite when I asked for an update and it was completed within a few days after that. Arrived back safely by courier on the day requested. Overall an easy and straightfoward process.
I would recommend Sewing Machine Sales. The machine was collected on the date I asked for and I could track the courier van. The service I received from the technician who looked at my machine was superb and he solved the problem. Sewing Machine Sales agreed to srevice my machine even though I don't have the original packaging which no other company would. My machine was returned to me in perfect working order and on the day specified. Again I could track the courier van so didn't need to stay in all day.
This company is excellent - has the whole repair process made easy, quick and efficient. From the picking up of the machine to keeping in touch and finally getting it back, fully repaired, to the customer. Great Service I would recommend to anyone.
Service excellent and my sewing machine received back in time stated
All round excellent service. From collection by courier to return delivery. Engineer David informed me of the problem which he fixed and how to get the best from my machine. Very impressed with a very professional service. Thankyou
Very pleased with the way Sewing Machine Sales handled my repair, couldn't have asked for a better service, I was kept up to date with what was happening and I son had my machine back and working perfectly. Very friendly, helpful and efficient service.
My machine required some attention due to some lint getting stuck, however they had my machine collected promptly by DPD and returned to me sorted. Good Service.
Very pleased to have had my embroidery machine collected and delivered. My machine had the appearance of a new machine straight from the shop. It was serviced within a week. Well done to everyone. Thank you,
1st class service only complaint is it would help when booking a service you were told at the time that the engineer was going on holiday thus giving you the option to go elsewhere to get it done quicker instead of having to wait nearly four weeks to get it back. otherwise a very good service.
