Info about ring gaps is easily found on the web. In addition, the time involved to gap rings would just drive the price up. The cost is already high and anybody who want to do it themselves shouldn't have to pay extra for us to do it. I suppose I could offer it as an additional service but that really shouldn't be necessary. It's a simple enough procedure.
You`re right of course.it is simple enough...but gets over looked it seems..
Offering it as an additional service at least would put the customer "on notice" that it needs to be done...kind of a friendly reminder
Nice to see you guys looking after this guy i must say...even if it`s his issue not yours......very nice customer service..
