aside from this great opportunity, which won't work for me date-wise, are there other recommendations for lawn mower service providers in B/CS?

For someone who has always had the best of intentions to attend the mall tune-up, but never been able to make it, how does the process work? I assume that it is first-come, first-served. If you get in line, do they service all that are in line, even if you get there close to the stated event end time?

You drop off mower, they call you when it's done. Normally couple hours.

I tend to wait a an hour or so after it starts, many show up first thing and there is a line.

Also make sure you mower starts BEFORE you go, they won't take it unless it starts

... in other words, check the basics:

Karl Childers just told me that new blades are cheap, about $12.

Karl said grinding and balancing a blade is not easy and it is much safer to buy a new blade

FYI, I took my mower to this. I didn't read the small print very well.
Got my mower back and it wouldn't run very well despite starting after tune-up.
Not their fault.

Called Lonny's and Bob's and they are both back-up for 1 month plus.

Lonny's told me it was probably a dirty carburetor.

Did some youtube kung-fu and found a video for my mower model on how to clean it myself.

30 minutes later and my mower is running like brand new. Before it would barely run and eventually stop on its own.

Went to Eds on Finfeather.

Great attitude. Great dude. My first time here and still treated me like a veteran

Pretty busy (its that time of year) but extremely satisfied
