We have one of the most advanced and experienced ski and snowboard workshops around and can undertake all servicing and repairs at our West Sussex workshop.  Below are the charges for the main services we offer.

Wax Only

£15.00

This is just a simple wax of your skis or snowboard. Normally for new skis and boards only as if any edge is raised or damage, it risks damaging expensive waxing irons. After waxing a coating of ZARDOZ Teflon is applied.

Express Servicing Options

There is a £5.00 surcharge for any work that needs to be turned around in 7 days or less, as servicing is undertaken in batches or stages, and fast turnaround requires breaking this process.

While-you-wait servicing can be arranged when the workshop has capacity to do so. Please contact us to see if we can accommodate your needs. There is a £10 surcharge for while you wait servicing as this will require the workshop technician to stop all other work whilst your servicing is undertaken.

 

Major Base Repairs

Wide Range of Services Available

£5+

We can undertake most base repairs that are economical to repair. Deep gouges will require Metal Grip treatment at a cost of £5-£10 per gouge. For larger issues we can replace sections of ski base precisely to allow the skis or snowboard to be used once again, and this is priced per job, with no obligation.

Binding Mounting Services

Rail System Bindings: £20
Drill Mount Bindings: £40

We can mount and test bindings on new and existing skis, and offer advice on swapping bindings without compromising ski strength. I am also technically proficient in mounting ski touring bindings of all makes. We always recommend bringing at least one boot with you when mounting bindings, and for touring bindings, due to the tolerances on most models, it's mandatory. If you also want advice on what bindings to buy for your skis, please contact me for independent and honest advice based on testing many variations.

Single insert - £10 (excluding insert and screw - £2.20 per insert and screw)
