    A few weeks ago I called the sales number on their website and got a guy. I talked to him a while because I was wondering about the status of the company and he said they were basically restructuring and kind of beat around the bush. My buddy's detector needs servicing and he told me upfront they were backed up and not to expect a fast turn around. If you haven't tried calling the main sales number then you may want to try that just to maybe get someone on the phone. He tried telling me about their newest detector when I told him I had another friend who had been looking to purchase a detector.

    Maybe someone you know lives close to there and can do an "eyes on" for you.

    I just was online and see at least one dealer dropped Tesoro as they had reason to believe Tesoro was on the way out...

    Man, I sure hope not. Stay at it in giving them a call for a follow up. Best of luck to you.

    Some on Facebook report they have been able to talk to Tesoro, supposedly one person is working repairs but they are behind by months. You might try some Tesoro Facebook pages.

    I sent my Sand Shark in to be repaired when I heard they were in trouble. It took several months to repair. The guy who I spoke to told me that he was working through them. I know they laid a lot of people off so maybe he was the only one doing repairs. I got mine back fixed with a new coil. Give it some time. I don't believe they would keep your detector. They may be in trouble but they still were standing by their product.

    Sunday 20 October 2019: I called the number on the brocure that came with my new, unopened uMax (I got it about a year ago). I got a recording that said something like, "We are going out of business and will not be accepting any new repairs. If we have your machine in for repairs, we will call you and not ship it out until we can confirm your address."

    They laid off everyone. Just wasnt enough sales and they refused to go to detector with screens. Good or bad most buyers now want screens..

    Iím still good with their lineup, of having no screen and learning the tones. I guess too many new comers just canít handle it without a target ID on there

    I think it was a lot more than lack of screens. First, they gave a lifetime warranties and even let people transfer warranty to re-buyers. Second was that they havent produced new technology in LOOOOONG time. You can keep repackaging the same toy in a new box and expect it to keep people interested.
