These usually occur when the fault description provided to us was inaccurate, or in the event that we found other faults in your unit. When these instances occur, you will be contacted personally to further discuss the details and the price of repair for any faults we find.
Minimum Charge for Repairs
All repairs are subject to a “minimum charge”. The minimum amount charges cover our repair specialist’ time and any parts used to attempt to repair on the unit. After thorough inspection of the unit, the minimum charge will become due:
• When it would be cheaper for you to purchase a new device than fixing your old one or the unit is “Beyond Economical Repair”.
• When we provide a new repair quotation and you refuse this quotation. Note that return postage cost will be charged in addition to the minimum charge. We may waive the minimum charge and return postage at our discretion, provided you give us permission to use the damaged unit for spare parts.
Turn Around time
Repairs usually take 3-5 days from the date they arrive at our repair center, this apart from the time taken to deliver the unit which is outwith our control. During peak seasons, repairs can take much longer to be fixed and processed.
