  1. Sourcing Parts
 
  • We aim to repair most Appliances, but the manufacturer, Appliance type, make, model and age will determine whether we can promptly obtain replacement part(s) and when we can complete the repair. It should also be noted that once a specific Appliance is no longer made, the manufacturer will only stock replacement parts for a given period.
 
  • There are some manufacturers whose parts are not easily sourced, and, in some cases, these must be obtained from abroad which will result in a delay in completing the repair. As soon as a part has been delivered, we or our engineer will contact you to arrange an appointment date to carry out the repair.
 
  • If a part is not in stock, this can also cause a delay. We will contact you and let you know when we expect the part to be in stock and estimated delivery dates.
 
  • If we are unable to repair your Appliance due to parts being obsolete/unobtainable or the Appliance is beyond economical repair (as determined by us or our engineer), you will still be charged for any parts we have ordered, and any engineer call outs (including our administrative charges).
     
  • If, for whatever reason, we are unable to source a part we will inform you of this. In such instance we would not be able to repair your Appliance. However, you would still be charged for any other parts we have ordered, and any engineer call outs (including our administrative charge).
 
  • If the engineer attends your premises and finds that no fault or repair is needed to your Appliance, you will still be charged for any engineer call out and any parts ordered (including our administrative charge).
 
  • If during an engineer’s visit, it transpires that further part(s) are required or if the engineer does not have the required part, we or the engineer will usually order the required part(s) within 1-3 working days of the engineer’s visit, providing you have made prior payment to us for such part(s). You will still be charged and will not receive a refund for any engineer call out and any parts ordered (including our administrative charge). We or our engineer will contact you to arrange a new appointment date to complete the repair.
 
  • Goods supplied and delivered by us to you, or your premises, shall remain our property until they have been paid for in full.
 
  • We reserve the right to refuse to install any parts which have not been provided by us or our engineers. Please note that the Repair Guarantee and Parts Guarantee as mentioned further below shall also not apply to any parts which have not been provided by us. We (or our engineer) will not be responsible or liable for any direct or indirect damage, loss, fault, defect or harm suffered or incurred howsoever arising to the Appliance and/or any surrounding area, fixtures, fittings, items or otherwise in carrying out or in attempting to carry out a repair or otherwise.
 
  1. Access to Appliance and Damage to Appliance/Surroundings
 
  • The focus of the repair will be based on the description of the fault you have described to us. If during the engineer call out, the fault is found to be as a result of misuse, neglect or poor installation or not in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines or, the Appliance or the fault is not as described originally, we reserve the right to charge additionally for this depending on the nature of the actual fault and the Appliance. Therefore, any Appliance or fault details which differ from the ones used to obtain a quote online or over the phone may be subject to a further or additional charge. We or our engineer will advise you further of such cost.
 
  • It is your responsibility to provide safe access to the Premises and unrestricted and unhindered access to the Appliance so that the Appliance is fully accessible. If your Appliance cannot be easily or safely accessed to facilitate the repair, our engineer reserves the right to abort the repair. In such instance, you would still be charged for any engineer call out and any parts ordered (including our administrative charge). We (or our engineer) will not be responsible or liable for any direct or indirect damage, loss, fault, defect or harm suffered or incurred howsoever arising to the Appliance and/or any surrounding area, fixtures, fittings, items or otherwise in carrying out or in attempting to carry out a repair or otherwise.
 
  • Without prejudice to the above clause, if you do raise any issue of alleged damage or fault to our attention, it must first be proven that such alleged damage, fault, harm or loss was directly and solely caused by our engineer and this must be reported to us along with clear photos and evidence of the alleged damage, harm or loss within 24 hours of the engineer’s visit. Even where this can be shown, we will fully rely on and remind you of the above liability clause.
 
  1. Payment and Refunds
 
  • We require prior payment before any engineer call outs are made to your premises. Payments for any parts that are to be ordered must be paid for before we can place the order.
 
  • You will not be entitled to any refund of any monies given for ordering any parts or where an engineer call out has been effected as mentioned above and further below (including any administrative charge by us).
 
  1. Repair / Parts Guarantee
 
  • We will carry out a repair at no cost to you if the identical fault arises to the same Appliance within 12 months from the date of the repair being carried out. This covers ONE engineer call out and parts and includes our administrative charge (“Repair Guarantee”).
 
  • All parts ordered by us are guaranteed for 12 months from the date of purchase. If during this period, any defect arises to a part ordered by us, we will replace that part at no cost to you. This covers ONE engineer call out and parts and includes our administrative charge (“Parts Guarantee”).
 
  • The Repair Guarantee and Parts Guarantee shall not apply where our engineer deems that:
 
  • Your use of the Appliance was not in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions or recommendations;
 
  • Wilful damage or neglect.
 
  • The Repair Guarantee and Parts Guarantee will also not apply if there is a subsequent unrelated breakdown / fault(s) to the Appliance and/or the Appliance or a part has been repaired, modified, altered, serviced, or has had other parts installed since our engineer’s last visit or if any work, fault or damage is directly or indirectly caused or procured to the Appliance by yourself or a third party or if the Appliance has been moved to another premises.
 
  1. Our Post-Repair Warranty
 
  • Where we have completed a repair on an appliance, you have the option of purchasing a 12-month warranty, this will be subject to our post-repair warranty terms and conditions available here [insert link]. Our team will advise you on this further regarding costs and the benefits depending on the Appliance type.
 
  1. Appointments and Cancellations
 
  • Our engineer will visit your premises on the agreed date and time. However, there may be instances where an engineer is not able to attend on the date and time agreed or we have to cancel your booking. Should this happen, we or our engineer will contact you to inform you and arrange a new date and time.
 
  • If you miss your appointment or are not available on the day of your appointment or if the engineer does not have safe access the premises or gain proper and safe access to the Appliance or we reasonably believe the health and/or safety of the engineer could be compromised and the repair is aborted, you will still be charged for the engineer call out, parts ordered and for any subsequent engineer call out (including our administrative charge).
   
  • Free parking or a valid permit to park must be provided to the engineer attending the premises. If this is not possible, additional charges for parking will be charged. If you are within the London congestion or ULEZ zones, you may incur additional charges to cover such costs.
 
  • If suitable parking is not available and our engineer aborts the repair, you will still be charged for the engineer call out, parts ordered and for any subsequent engineer call out (including our administrative charge).
   
  • You are expected to give as much notice as possible when cancelling an appointment. If you cancel on the day or the day before a repair was arranged for you, you will have to pay for the engineer call out that was due (including our administrative charge). You will also not receive any refund for any parts ordered.
      
  • We may refuse to provide a service or end the contract if:
 
  • You do not make any payment to us when it falls due;
 
  • You fail to provide us with information that is necessary for us to carry out the repair;
 
  • You fail to give us safe and proper access to your property or the Appliance to enable us to carry out the repair;
 
  • You or anyone at the premises behaves in a threatening or abusive way to our employees or engineers.
 
  • In such instances you will not receive any refund on the engineer call out and you will be charged for any parts ordered or installed (including our administrative charge).
 
  • If we are prevented from providing any services or if there is a delay in ordering or receiving a part or if there is a delay in an engineer call out as a result of an event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control, we shall not be in breach of this agreement and will not be responsible or liable for any direct or indirect damage, fault, loss, defect or harm suffered or incurred howsoever arising.
 
  • Should the period of delay or non-performance continue for one month, you may terminate your Appliance repair and receive a full refund for services that have not been carried out by giving written notice to us. You will not receive any refund and you will be charged for any parts ordered or installed and/or any engineer call outs that have taken place (including our administrative charge).
 
  • You may cancel the booking up to twenty-four (24) hours after you receive confirmation from us about your booking and will receive a full refund (“Cancellation Period”).
 
  • However, where we have booked any work before your Cancellation Period ends and you cancel during or after the Cancellation Period, we will charge and you will be responsible to pay for (including our administrative charge):
 
  • Any work that has already been carried out including any engineer call out charges;
  • Any work that we need to action to ensure safety of the premises;
  • Any parts that have been ordered or installed.
