If the goods are out of warranty a service call fee is applicable for a representative to visit the premises. This is a minimum of $85. The goods will be serviced onsite if possible. The service call fee is payable, regardless of the time it has taken to fix the issue or if the issue can’t be fixed.

The service call fee is to cover the Representative or Contracts time and travel expenses. If the goods need to be removed and returned to the factory to be repaired, we will endeavour to do so with the least amount of disruption to the client. If there will be any other cost involved, we will inform the client and get their approval before we proceed.

We will inform the client of time frames and expectations at the time. The warranty on Repairs is 30 days but only for the original repair.
