Restoration Service

With over 20 years experience in repairing and restoring vintage wireless and television sets, why not have your vintage set fully restored by us!
As the years go by, most of the vintage radios and TVs from yesteryear are well past their best. Whether it’s due to dodgy rubber flex, broken cabinets or tired components, they never perform as they are supposed to. They can even be dangerous to use.

So here at The Vintage TV & Wireless Company, we’ve come up with 3 service options to choose from. Take a look below at our fixed price options, and drop us a line if you need any further information.

Home  is a slightly more involved restoration of the chassis for 1920s to 1940s wireless sets.Again the chassis is cleaned and all components that have failed and the ones likely to will be replaced. The tuned circuits will be fully re-aligned and tested. Many of these sets use rubber covered wire inside the chassis and this will be replaced with modern PVC wires to make the set safe to operate.
