Service Info & Pricing

We service, tune & upgrade all brands* of suspension, regardless of age, type and model.  We are also the NZ agents for Manitou and have access to the full range of Manitou shocks & parts.

Servicing is available from periodic maintenance to full strip and service.  We can offer, where available, new factory parts, new aftermarket parts and sometimes good used parts for older obselete models.

We offer tuning and upgrades for the most popular suspension platforms.  Details on how we can improve your rear shock are available here.

Servicing is performed by trained staff in a clean work-shop using dedicated tools and the best fluids for each application.  Service costs are split into labour, fluids and parts.  Rear shock return is via insured & tracked courier (Post Haste or NZ Couriers), pickup (if local or passing through Central Otago) or drop off (Alexandra/Clyde shops only).

*We service all brands, including Manitou, Rockshox, Fox, Cane Creek, Marzocchi, Ohlins, Specialized, DVO, DT, Magura, Maverick, Pace, RST, Suntour, Wren, X-Fusion, AMP Research, Noleen, Kona, Lapierre, Curnutt, DMN, BOS, Elka, Scott, Stratos and others; excluding Cannondale Headshock & Lefty.

Direct or via your Local Bike Shop

We offer service & tuning direct to customers who are comfortable removing suspension from their bike.  For locals we are able to remove the suspension from bikes at our workshop (there is a charge for this - see shock labour pricing - Other Charges). We also work with local bike shops (LBS) - so you can contact them to book a Shockcraft service.  When your LBS is servicing your bike is the ideal time to get your suspension serviced too.

Lead Time & Service Queue

Our Service Queue Counter provides an indication of lead time for service jobs once they arrive at Shockcraft.*  This timeframe updates automatically depending on how many items are in the queue.  Our live service queue is available for you to see how your job is progressing through the queue.  When our service queue is longer (>2 weeks) our Book Now, Send Later or Book Now, Drop Later service is a good option to shorten the time you are without your suspension or dropper post.

*Lead time is number of working days.  This timeframe is true at the time of booking but can change quickly if we have a rush of bookings.  We service parts in the order that they arrive, unless the Book Now, Send Later or Book Now, Drop Later service has been used.  Delays may occur if we are awaiting parts for service or repair.  On our live service queue these jobs will be marked as position 0 in the queue.  We will do our best to keep you updated if there is such a delay.

Subscribe to Service Queue Notification

To be notified when our Service Queue gets shorter please complete the subscription form over here. You will be notified once only via email when the Service Queue reaches the length you have selected.

Getting Parts to Shockcraft

There are three options for getting your suspension or dropper post to us:
•   Drop Off : If you are based in Central Otago or passing through you are welcome to drop your suspension to us at 58 Boundary Road, Alexandra.
•   Carrier Kereru (Pigeon) Pickup: If you are too far to come visit then you can book our Shockcraft  Kereru and we'll arrange courier pickup of your suspension/dropper post (New Zealand based customers only - Kereru do not fly offshore).
•   Arrange Own Courier

Once you've booked your job we will email you a job number and a Shockcraft address label with checklist so you know what to do next.  We will notify you via email when your parts arrive and when your service is complete.  In between we will contact you if we have any questions.
