It has been in the works for some time, now our little shop has a proper website and I am reminded that I need to add this site to my resource list. 

Our wee little shop is in Canada, we ship worldwide.

It looks like your website is off to a good start.

I’m curious about your machine service house calls.  Do you service the machine in the owner’s home, in a vehicle outside, or do you transport the machine to your location and back?  I’ve offered a pickup and delivery service for about 10 years, but had to stop three years ago due to leg problems.  I never worked on machines in the home (except treadle belts) and never had a remote service vehicle.

Alex Askeroff had a delightful book out about his years of home sm repair calls.  From the little old ladies who always had a hot cuppa tea waiting, to those who would steal from his repair kit when he had his back turned.  All set in historical old England, where he might drive on one day through the site of the battle of Hastings which took place in 1066, or view the white cliffs on another.

We have quite a few rural customers so we service on site unless the machine has issues we can't handle remotely. 

I drive a pickup so I can pickup treadles and cabinets if they need work, can even fit one in my little Toyota RAV if I want to. 

Sometimes people do not want to move a machine, or have trouble moving it so we book a house call and if we can service it without transporting it, we do. 

There is usually tea or coffee and sometimes dogs and cats to cuddle.
