Regional Repair Centre - repairs all makes of camera


Whilst they can repair any make of camera, their USP is that they can repair all types of Sony camera regardless of age and are the only independent agent in the UK authorised to repair Sony Alpha products.  They normally charge a £30 inspection fee (that is deducted from the cost of the repair if you choose to go ahead), however they have said that they could provide a unique discount code to quote when calling them to have this fee waived.  Consequently, if your have any favourite pieces of Sony kit lying around that they would like fixed or serviced then they can post them and get a quote for free.


Their phone number is 0121 789 9991
