Telephone restorations

Restore your old telephone.

Orders may be made over the telephone 7 days a week 8.30am to 8.00pm.


Conversions are only carried out on telephones brought to me in person. The cost of postage, packing and sending them back is just so time consuming it makes the work carried out non-viable.


                  CONVERT FOR MODERN USE (basic conversion)

This can be done while you wait. Allow at least an hour.


             This assumes all parts are good and nothing needs replacing.

A quote should be sought before any work is carried out.

Because so many people have asked me to restore their telephone for them I have now relented and will restore by post. I have strict rules and terms that must be agreed before any telephone is restored. The telephone must be inspected for any damaged parts in advance of sending to me. You will be required to fill out a condition report form. Any damaged parts will be chargeable and agreed in advance. You don't have to have these replaced if happy to live with a damaged part. I will send you an estimate of cost. Once I receive the telephone I will inspect the telephone to see if we agree and if not I will estimate parts to be replaced and revise the charge or you can OK without that parts being replaced. If not happy to go ahead for any reason I will send it back at your ex-pence. Postage and packing back to me will be pre-charged and your telephone will be returned once fully restored once the bill is paid in full.



FULL RESTORATION TO THE BEST CONDITION POSSIBLE WITH THE TELEPHONE SUPPLIED. (This will include the basic conversion as stated above)

Note any parts that need to be replaced are charged on top of this price.
