It has been pointed out to us that maybe our £35 starting price is not that well understood so I am hoping that this article will make it a lot more transparent.
This is how the web site puts it across We have a starting price of £35 per job no matter how many parts you send to us.

So what are we saying?
If you give us one broken part it is going to cost at least £35. Now if you have two broken parts and give us both at the same time we believe that you are all assuming that it is going to cost you from £70 when in fact it may save you £15 +. Say you give us three parts at the same time what then? That could mean a saving of £25+ and four parts £35+ There is an accumulative affect to the number of parts you give us at once. That is why we say it is priced per job and not per part.
There are some thing’s to take in to account, all the examples are based on a basic repair, if you deicide to enhance the finish then the savings decrease. Also the complexity of the repair affects the price; ie if all the parts are broken in three then the amount of saving will be next to nothing or may cost even more. The savings are not infinite and beyond that point there is no further reduction. On average when someone sends or gives us a multi part repair ( job ) they get a saving, this is because the parts have differing degrees of damage which allows our customers to make savings.
Come closer Shhhh! While no one is listening, I should not be telling you this but you could get together with your friends and send or give us a number of parts collectively then all of you will benefit from the reduced price but don’t let on that I have told you. It will be our secret.
Offers are like buses. Once one turns up then it is not long before two more come along.

Hi Everyone, this is an update on some things we planned for this year and not like previous posts for others.
The first of these is a small thank you to our customers and the readers of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics. With the publication of the August edition comes a voucher for 10% discount on all our repair services which will be valid until November 2013.
And the other is a plug for our new plastic repair patches.
For all those who want to keep their repairs authentic we now supply plastic patches. They come in two flavors ABS and polypropylene, for added convenience they are packaged with one professional length of welding rod. From our experience we have found that using the same material to replace a bit that is missing makes for a stronger longer lasting repair once welded into place. It is far better to use a new piece of plastic than an old piece that needs to be cleaned up before use and may not weld in properly. It also gets rid of the messy use of filler and/or fibreglass.
The patches are 200 mm x 130 mm approx by three millimeter thick and a professional length of welding rod is one meter and 3 mm in diameter.
The welding rod, patch combination is £7 including postage and packing. Can be collected by appointment. UK mainland only.
Here we are again at the start of another tough trading year. Like you we will be looking for the best price for the services to run the business. So I thought this maybe a good time to out line how you can get the best deal from us. Customers who use us regularly will already know what to do to get a discount. For those who are not familiar with the way we do things, here is an out line of the discount structure.
Please do not come to us for the first time with one item expecting a discount on the price we give you. We judge each job on its merits and give you the best price for your repair. You can get discounts for:
More than one item. If you and a friend have a broken faring each, club together that way you can get a lower unit cost.
If you belong to a club ask them to speak to us we are happy to arrange a club discount.
If you are a regular user of our service private or business you can get a discount. Some of our private customers are serial bike restorers making them eligible for this discount.
