Of course, the sooner you get it to the shop, the better. This is a very quick and easy fix for a tech, assuming that's all it needs. My guess is, if the neck is loose there may be some other problems worth fixing.

Sometimes that's all it needs (i.e. the neck tightened) and it's not quick and easy. Not often, but sometimes.
When I said 'quick and easy' I should have added the term relatively, and I'm referring to a good tech. I've had loose necks on my horns in the past. Took the horn in, then waited about 15 minutes while the tech did whatever it takes. A minimal charge and I was on my way. If the socket is seriously distorted or the neck seriously bent, then I doubt putting tape on it will help much. My only point is don't mess around. Take the horn in and get it fixed. Assuming you want to play it.
