It amazes me that I can mail my regs to Scubatoys, have them serviced and mailed back for less $ and in less time than it takes my local store.

My local store requires proof that all your gear is serviced before you can dive on any of their trips. Sounds OK of a rule on the surface. However, they take 21 days and charged $187 to service my reg and BC a few years ago. They charge even bigger bucks for rush service. I didn't feel that 10 days was rush service. If the business model of any store is to trap you into paying higher prices for equal or lesser service, they will have to rely on new customers because repeat customers will be hard to come by as I will mail my gear to Scubatoys for service.

Thank You Scubatoys!
