Go to Rick's bait and tackle. Keith the reel guy works on rod and reels and is very reasonable. I think if you search Keith the reel guy on fb it comes up there as well.

If you are handy at all, or adventurous, it's not too hard to do yourself. There are plenty of youtube videos and on line directions. Just think of it as another facet of your addiction.

X2 to doing it yourself, strikezone can order you parts if you have to replace anything. If your going to drop it off to someone might as well send it back to manufacturer they service them as well and usually have a pretty quick turnaround time.

One caution if you diy. take pixs as you tear it down and get a schematic of reel downloaded. I once took apart an old Shimano Curado all the way down to the screws and and washers. Thought I would do a thorough cleaning and servicing and get it back together the next day. I ended up having to order a few parts. Well, the next day turned into three years. Thank God you can download complete schematics for their reels. That was quite an adventure putting it all back together after all that time. Now I clean and service the same day if no parts are needed. Though those curados always seem to need a little shifting dog that corrodes.
