TERMS OF TRADE
By leaving your equipment with us for service work, you confirm that you accept the following terms of service:
- We will provide repair, upgrade, fault resolution and installation services, as may be required for your Service Request, in relation to your Equipment (whether as a Warranty Claim or outside of warranty).
- We usually perform our services at our premises, with it being your responsibility to deliver and collect your Equipment from us. However, we may agree to perform our Services at your site, in which case we may charge amounts for travel time and costs in addition to our quoted charge or Standard Hourly Rate as the case may be. If you request us to freight your Equipment to or from you then it will be done solely at your risk, with additional charges from us for such freight.
- We perform our services during our normal business hours being 8.30am to 5pm Monday’s to Friday’s (excluding public holidays). If you require urgent ‘out of hours’ services, then we may charge an hourly rate which is higher than our Standard Hourly Rate (if we have not provided you with a quote to perform such services).
- Although we will use all reasonable endeavours to provide you with your desired outcome to our services, due to a number of potential issues relating to your Equipment (including make, type, any prior damage, the software installed, any viruses etc.) we are unable to guarantee that we will be able to provide any particular service outcome.
