     I have changed my business model and now perform pick up and deliveries to customer premises within a 10 mile radius of Wyckoff, NJ. Extended driving distances greater than the 10 mile radius will have to be negotiated as part of the repair cost (typically 50 cents/driving mile). I do not maintain a shop open to the public. I also maintain a drop off\pick up relationship with Ackerman's Music in Wyckoff. If you prefer to drop off the instrument with Ackerman's then I will perform the service and you can then pick it up at Ackerman's. Contact Ray Rosario (201) 546-6880 for Ackerman's hours of operation.

    All meetings with customers are by appointment only. My hours are flexible, with afternoons, evenings, and weekends best. I accept cash (exact change), credit cards, Venmo, Paypal, and checks.
