Once thought to be out of sink with the rest of humanity, now they are the norm. We do work 5-6 and sometimes 7 days a week. However, the portion at the weeks' beginning are dedicated to office and other behind the scenes business dealing's. Please communicate with us via email during those times, for a quick response. We start very early to respond, we assure you. For visiting us, all of this can be done from Thursday till Saturday.

Unforeseen Events

Like all of you , we have elderly parents, we do get ill on occasion, tornado's may happen, wind or winter storms... you know, life's little problems may get in the way of us opening. Should you show up, and our doors are closed with no signage, ( please forgive us ahead of time ). In those times we try our best to offer door signs, if impossible, our voice mail and emails will be up to date and provide all relevant info on those dates. Leave us your Cell # on our voice mail, we will call you back ASAP.

Our after care services

We have always provided full service to all that we sell you. With exemptions of used trades bought elsewhere, where the purchaser will be warned ahead of time, buying from us assures some continuity of repair services. On used gear, this entails a charge for our repair services.

You enter on secure premises, and our location is monitored via camera and other security measures at all times.

Demo times and after hours appointments.

Should you show up for a demonstration without booking a RV time, it is possible as long as 3 issues are not at play :

 - Dem's need to be simple to set up from a set up stand point, and from companies that are plug and play, in nature.

 - Complex or protracted set ups are by appointment only.

After hours appointments are offered Thursday and Friday evening, starting at 3 pm.

Off times and summer weekend etc

Our summer weekends, where we normally close at 2pm, take place usually between May and Late September or so. For those that like to make very late arrivals 10 or so minutes before close time, may be surprised to find us not being there. Albeit, we never throw anybody out, if we are busy, we stay. If we are not, we may leave a tad early for the silly little boys we are. Normal closing hours on Saturday are 4pm or till last man leaves.

SPI totally closes upon our vacation times, that are advertised way ahead of time.
