You would want to fix it while you can. That way maybe they will see how you want the comb running. I bought a hive, it was in bad shape, opened it after I got it home. It was 1 deep with a shallow super, the shallow super after getting cover off was just the box with a pint feeder in it. Well the rest of the box was filled with comb, going from the pint jar to the edges of the box.
