Shipping & Delivery
Repairs usually take 1-5 days from the date they arrive at our repair centre, this excludes the time taken for return delivery which is outside of our control (although we use a next-day service for the vast majority of units). Usually we send back same or second day. Note for harder repairs can take longer to be proccesed.
All items we send strictly by signed for first, second or special delivery.
Please note that postage covers UK mainland only. We can send repairs worldwide - but prices vary per country. Please contact us for a price before sending in a repair.
Our repairs carry a limited 3 month warranty except the following:
liquid damage repair - 30 day warranty
Other services jobs - 30 day warranty
In the unlikely event your unit becomes faulty within the warranty period please send the unit back with a copy of the receipt or Ref No. and a covering letter stating current fault (we are not liable for your costs to return the unit to us). We will investigate and respond within 3 working days. If the problem is related to the initial repair, we will carry out a further repair free of charge and return at no cost. If the unit has further problems not related to original repair or parts not replaced in previous repair we will contact you and let you make a decision with regards to the cost. We will attempt a re-repair on your unit TWICE after the initial repair. If after this, the unit is still faulty we will issue a refund (minus the minimum charge, postage fee). We will need to see the unit and make sure its faulty prior to issuing a refund.
To clarify: If you send a unit to us under the repair warranty, the cost of the postage to send the unit to us will be covered by you, however we will return the unit to you free of charge if a problem is found. If the problem is not related to the original fault or no fault is found, return postage charges will apply.
