Keep reading for more details about what’s included in the “MINIMUM SERVICE CHARGE”.
Covers fuel and wear and tear on the service van.
I diagnose your bike’s issue based on “TIME IN”.
The clock starts as soon as I touch your bike with one of my tools. It ends when YOU say it ends or when I figure out what’s wrong with your bike. I will then be able to give you a flat rate estimate for the necessary repairs. I can figure out what’s wrong with most, but not all, machines in 10-20 minutes.
If I complete your repair in 30 minutes or less (rare, but it happens), only the minimum service charge is due. If you decide not to go through with repairs after I diagnose your bike (very rare, but it happens), only the minimum service charge is due.
- Storage, proper or not, often does more damage to scooters, motorcycles, and ATVs than beating-the-snot-out-of-them on a regular basis. If you own a scooter, motorcycle, or ATV, I suggest using the machine as much as possible rather than letting it sit for extended periods of time.
- Note that bikes with more than one thing wrong with them can sometimes take more than an hour to diagnose.
- For instance, I may be able to diagnose your first issue in 10 minutes and quote you a flat rate for that repair, but your bike may still need more repairs beyond the first thing I find wrong with it.
- If your bike developed its issue “suddenly”, without warning during normal operation, there’s likely to be just one thing wrong with it. In these instances, diagnostic times are often quite short.
- The opposite is true if your bike has been sitting for a long time. The diagnostic and repair process can, but doesn’t always, turn into a nightmare of epic proportions for bikes that have been sitting for more than a few years.
- Some bikes require a partial or complete mechanical restoration before they will run again.
I must diagnose your bike’s issue before I can give you a flat rate estimate for repairs.
Labor after the diagnostic session is quoted on a “FLAT RATE,” which means the cost is fixed regardless of how much time it takes to complete the work.
|Carburetor cleaning||$95/carb + parts|
|Cable replacement||$31.35/cable + parts|
|Scooter belt replacement||$47.5 + parts|
|Motorcycle chain/sprockets removal and replacement||$95 + parts|
|Scooter tire removal and replacement||$47.5 + parts|
Note that these are EXAMPLES only and apply to most, but not all, machines.
Some repairs, like carburetor cleanings, can often be completed without having to purchase additional parts. Other repairs like removing and replacing belts, chains, and/or sprockets require parts to complete.
If your bike suffers from a “no spark” issue, I will most likely need to order parts. I keep CDI boxes for “GY6” type scooters in stock. If your bike needs a stator, I will most likely have to order it. There’s no additional charge for the second trip; both trips are covered under the same service call.
Most parts are extra, but I do not mark my parts up. You pay cost and shipping for all parts.
Includes chemicals and supplies like carburetor cleaner, brake cleaner, and shop towels.
If it comes out of a spray can or from a roll, it’s included with “shop supplies.”
If I have to pour, measure, or count it, it’s considered “parts” and costs extra.
For example; chain lube is shop supplies, but motor oil is parts.
Electrical connectors are parts and cost extra. Fasteners are parts and cost extra.
I offer 10% off to active-duty military, veterans, and military brats.
I offer 10% off to LGBTQ+ people.
And 10% off for teachers, too.
In any case, you have to ask for the discount.
All discounts apply to the labor only. Parts are parts; they cost what they cost. 😛
The total includes the service call, diagnostic time, labor time, parts, and shop supplies minus any applicable discounts.
