Silver Repair Cost

                                       

    The silver repair price list will provide the average cost to repair certain damage without being misleading. Usually the damage we repair varies in degree from piece to piece. Our silver repair prices are based mostly on the time necessary to achieve a quality result. The silver repair prices may change based on the actual condition of the item. If the price exceeds those shown more than 15% we will contact you for approval prior to doing the repairs.

Our silver repair charges include polishing the area of repair only prior to returning it to you. Most companies have a repair charge and then add a mandatory polishing charge, up to 50% of their re-plating cost of the piece to the final cost to polish the entire piece. In some case you may not want the entire piece high polished as it may not match the rest of your set. Their repair charge may be less than ours but the final cost may be much greater. We give you a choice to have the entire piece polished or not. If you choose to have the entire piece polished, which is recommended, our finial cost will still probably be less. The cost for professional polishing the entire piece, if requested, is an additional charge of 22% of the cost to replate. See plating prices. For example you have a handle soldered to a creamer. The cost to repair with minor clean-up is $40.00 and $60.14 if the entire piece is professionally polished to restore its beauty.
