We reserve the right to make special arrangements with individual customers, regarding pricing & hourly rates.
No out of town checks, except with well-established prior Fleischer's customers.  NO credit cards.  NO debit cards.  
No vehicle work....that includes no automobile radio/stereo work.  In general, no large/heavy console work.

Warranty begins day customer picked up item. Warranty is only on work WE did. Standard warranty is 90 days.

Parts are invoiced at 2nd lowest of the 5 levels established by Narda Sperry-Tech. This does not apply to some items, such as vacuum tubes.

We have a limited area for storage.  Because items not picked up create so many problems for us, we have instituted certain fees and procedures.  Storage fees $5.00 per day beginning 5 days after 'being notified' item is ready for pickup, unless agreed upon otherwise IN ADVANCE. "Being notified" includes leaving a message on customer's answering machine; or, 10 business days after mailing such a notice of storage fees to customer's as-provided mailing address.    If no response, attempts to contact customer again by telephone, or other method will be done.   30 days afterwards, item will be offered for sale.   IN ANY SITUATION WHERE STORAGE FEES HAVE TO BE CHARGED, ONLY CASH WILL BE ACCEPTABLE FOR PAYMENT....THAT MEANS NO CHECKS, NO BANK CHECKS, NO CREDIT CARDS, ETC.   Cash only.     Customer will be placed on a list of similar.

NOTE:    For decades we sometimes, time permitting, have offered a 'best-guess, relatively quick', analysis/estimate for most item's problems.  The price is low, ...and you don't leave your item here for repairs in order to obtain this type of analysis/estimate.  While the cost depends on the item, & amount of time spent, typical price is $5 to $20.  Typically, I will explain what I am doing and why, while you are watching me do the analysis/estimate.   SOMETIMES we find fixing a problem to be simple and quick to do, and WE MAY offer to do the needed repair, while you wait.

Our terms are:  Cash only or local check.  Arranged for it with us ahead of your appointment time.   You cannot leave a unit here for any type of work, including a formal minimum fee estimate, and then later telephone us to try to get this particular type of service analysis/estimate.
