Without seeing them makes the estimate tough. It's like asking the body shop to quote you on the fender bender you had on the way to work. You really need to see it first.

Figure a average of $160 per prop for "minor" repairs and balance and buffing.

We always call with a accurate estimate before starting the work when requested.

Yes we can be pretty accurate with pictures. But the true decision requires seeing the actual propellers. We would never begin the repairs without conformation from the owners and a agreed upon quote.

I too need some prop work as well, how much does shipping usually run. Only have have one. looks to be a hydromotive I think. All blades have damage that looks like was repaired with a hammer at a boat ramp......

Shipping varies with the weight and the carrier. We have contracts with UPS and DHL so the shipping costs are low.

I have found the US postal service to be a inexpensive alternative. Figure in the $8-$20 range depending on weight and distance.
