FAQ

PLEASE NOTE – MY RETIREMENT IS LOOMING SO I NOW ONLY REPAIR AND RESTORE BUSH DAC90A RADIOS

 

I NEED TO KNOW ROUGHLY HOW MUCH THE REPAIR WILL COST BEFORE YOU GO AHEAD

I will check your radio over, find the faults, and give you an estimate for any work needed. There is no charge for this and you are under no obligation. If you don’t want the work done, simply collect your radio and pay nothing. If you posted your radio to me, you will need to pay for the cost of return postage. PLEASE NOTE… I never include the cost of post and packing when giving an estimate. Return post and packing has nothing to do with the estimate. This is costed separately.

WHAT DOES A FULL SERVICE INCLUDE?

Check my detailed service procedure. Please be aware that an estimate to repair or restore your radio will not include the cost of repairing or restoring the cabinet. During a radio repair or restoration, I will wash and polish the Bakelite cabinet as part of the service procedure.

WHAT RADIO STATIONS WILL I BE ABLE TO RECEIVE

BBC Radio 4 is on long wave. On medium wave, you should be able to hear Talk Sport, BBC Radio 5 Live, Smooth Radio, Absolute Radio and possible a local radio station depending on where you are located. Reception can be poor in some areas, as can interference. Bear in mind that stations such as Classic FM, Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3 etc do not transmit on medium wave.

DO YOU GUARANTEE YOUR RADIO REPAIRS?

Yes, all my repair work is guaranteed for one year. However, the guarantee is not transferable. This means that, if you sell the radio, the guarantee becomes null and void.

ARE THERE ANY ITEMS THAT YOU DON’T REPAIR?

I now only repair and restore Bush DAC90A radios.

HOW DO I GET MY RADIO TO YOU?

I suggest you bring your treasured radio to me in person. However, you can post it to me. You might want to check  my postage information.

DO I NEED TO CONTACT YOU TO SEE HOW MY RADIO REPAIR IS PROGRESSING?

There’s no need to contact me to see how your radio repair is progressing. All you need to do is check my repair progress page.

HOW DO I PAY YOU?

I accept payment via PayPal – you can use a credit card with PayPal, even if you don’t have an account with them. It’s fast and secure, and it’s become the most effective method of payment on the internet. Alternatively, you can pay by postal order or bank transfer. If collecting your radio in person, payment must be made and funds cleared prior to collection. Alternatively, you can pay by cash on collection.

WHAT SORT OF AERIAL WILL I NEED FOR MY RADIO?

Bush DAC90A radios are not fitted with a socket for an external aerial.

I WANT TO SELL MY RADIO, ARE YOU INTERESTED?

No, I don’t buy radios.

DO YOU SUPPLY SPARES?

Sorry, I don’t have any parts for sale.
