We provide Maintenance, Repair, Service, Repair and Upgrade to Customer Requirements.

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).


Service request calls from Commercial Customers, and Schools are logged at time of receipt.
Equipment brought in, or sent in, for service is computer logged on arrival at our premises.
Equipment is assessed for repair in strict rotation by an appropriate engineer for the product.
Fault finding is carried out as appropriate and spares are ordered from the manufacturer.
When all spares have been received the equipment is allocated to an engineer for completion.
The equipment is subjected to final testing, is cleaned and packed for collection or despatch.
For equipment brought in, the Customer is contacted by telephone to arrange collection.
For equipment sent in, the customer is contacted and arrangements are made to return the equipment.
Where appropriate, repairs will be arranged with and carried out by the equipment manufacturers or their agents.
