In the following list I have assembled a number of addresses to send your Rollei 35 for a CLA (Clean, Lubricate and Adjust) or repair. The names were put forward by members of the Rollei List, the Rollei Users Group and other reliable friends with first hand experience. Some times an owner expressed the wish to be included. I have selected only those shops that have positively indicated to work on Rollei 35 camera’s, not just Rollei(flex) in general.

I have no relationship with any of the repair shop on this list, except that I am a patron of two of them. Some shops are well established and have a splendid reputation backed by a great number of loyal patrons. From time to time new repair shops are added. Unfortunately we loose shops caused by retirement.
