Does you shop charge a labor cost for warranty work?I had a problem with my bow and took it to the nearest shop to have it fixed and was charged $40.Now the problem with my bow was done before I even shot it one time so basicly I received it that way.This bow was new and still in the box.

Did you buy the bow from them?
I do not charge for warranty work on bows bought from me.
If you bought it somewhere else, then I charge for my labor.
Only seems fair to me since the bow companies pay 0 to proshops for warranty labor.

Then I agree he should have charged you for the work he did.
I don't know what was done so I have no idea if 40.00 was a fair price.
What kind of bow is it?

I agree you didn't buy it from him-----they don't get reimbursed from the company and they are there to make a living, they don't work for free or they wouldn't be in business. :wink:

how did you buy it "new" in the box when you didn't buy it from a shop? not getting charged for warranty work is one of the benefits for supporting your local shop. getting paid for working on a bow you didn't sell is fair....

I would say if you didn't buy it from them it is fair then that they charged you labor. Why should they work for free?
