Repairs & Machine Servicing


WE ARE NOW OFFERING NATIONWIDE SERVICE!!

Are you a clays shooter with a cantankerous trap or a gun club with a gaggle of worn skeet/trap machines in need of adjustment and maintenance?  Howell Traps now offers nationwide trap service at an affordable rate!  Our experienced and professional staff will inspect, service and make recommendations as to what improvements are needed on most brands. 

Please contact us today to get on our yearly maintenance schedule which consists of a $250 travel expense, lodging expense and $70 per hour repair plus parts.  Price may vary depending on lodging arrangements, time at service call and parts needed.  It is recommended to provide a helper to see what is involved in basic operation and maintenance.  We will be glad to show your staff how to operate and work on the equipment.

Whether you bring it to us, send it to us or we schedule a service call to come fix it on site, we will get your machine back up and throwing again.  If you need to schedule a service call or repair work please fill out our Repairs Form below and give us some information about what's going on.  One of our technicians will call you to figure out the best way to get your machines in working order or put you on our service schedule.
