Our manufacturer trained engineers place the greatest importance on quality of service,

service and repairs. Most of our service work comes from customer recommendation!
Repair services are only available to our
customers, specifically for equipment originally supplied by us.
Education and commercial repair services are available upon application on a
wide range of equipment.
Repairs are carried out using manufacturers original spares and
components wherever possible to return the equipment to the original
specification. It is
our mission to repair and service your equipment to the highest possible standards
ensuring maximum reliability and the minimum of downtime.
We reserve the right to refuse to repair any product which has been modified
from its original specification in any way.

For equipment to be repaired under the manufacturers original guarantee we shall
require a photocopy of your purchase invoice showing the Make, Model No. Serial No, the
name and address of the retailer and the date of purchase.
Please note that manufacturers do not normally pay carriage charges,
these are the responsibility of the customer.
In the event that equipment is accepted for repair under the
conditions above, but is found not to be faulty (e.g. Fault cannot be detected or
confirmed, or the problem is due to miss-operation) then normal charges will apply as
manufacturers will only reimburse us for repairs to faulty equipment. Where the original
purchase has been made from us, the diagnosis charge (but not carriage charges) may at our
option, be waived.
For equipment covered by an extended guarantee, either with the manufacturer or an
insurance company, or a customer services authorisation from a manufacturer, we shall
require a letter of authorisation for the repairs required, indicating the extent of the
authorisation and any limitations imposed.
When a service report, or repair estimate is
requested by the manufacturer, prior to authorisation for repair, this is chargeable at
the appropriate rate for 1 hour of labour, this charge is payable by the
customer when the equipment is
brought in (Manufacturers will usually NOT reimburse this charge).
