Brother PR600, PR620, PR650, PR655, PR1000 & PR1050x Service and Repair.

As well as selling and leasing the Brother PR range of multi-needle embroidery machines, we also service and repair them. We have a large and well stocked workshop and we are experts in the repair and service of the entire range of Brother embroidery machines.

Our deliveries to customers old and new takes us all over the UK. Almost every week or so one of us is heading down the M6 or M1 motorways, or the A1, towards Birmingham, London, Kent, Essex, Cambridge, Northamptonshire, Peterborough and Norfolk etc. etc. etc. So, the M6 & M1 corridors are a well trodden route and one you can take advantage of if your Brother PR model is in need of some expert attention.

When your precious PR requires attention get in touch with the experts, phone Alan or Steve Bamber and we’ll arrange to collect your machine, service and repair it and then return it safely to you.

We also make the odd trip up to Scotland. Steve was in Edinburgh and Glasgow yesterday.
