Use of our repair service may void your manufacturer’s warranty. If you are unsure as to the validity of your warranty, please liaise with the manufacturer of your device prior to utilising our service.
Any data or information that you may have stored on your device shall remain your responsibility and we accept no liability for loss of such data however caused. Prior to utilising our service we highly recommend that you back-up your device onto an external hard drive.
We take no responsibility for any progression in damage for device(s) that have been damaged by liquid. Although unlikely, opening the device could initiate further damage and in some cases may result in the device being unrepairable.
We shall offer 1-month warranty for liquid damage repairs. Should your device display additional issues relating to liquid damage during the warranty period, we will re-assess and re-quote for the work required.
We take no responsibility for any progression in damage where your device has been repaired by a third party prior to utilising our repair service. Should any issues arise, once the device is opened, we will contact you via telephone/email. (Examples of this may include missing internal components and or torn flex cables etc).
We cannot guarantee your device will be repaired/returned within our stated turnaround time as there are a number of external factors that can affect this. Any stated turnaround time will commence once your device has arrived at our repair centre.
The warranty term included with your repair is detailed in section 2. If your device develops an additional fault unrelated to the original repair, the repair warranty contained in this paragraph will not apply.
The warranty includes the repaired/replaced part(s) only and does not include further accidental or liquid damage to these parts.
If your device is repaired by a 3rd party after utilising our service, your warranty with Fettled Tech Repair will be null and void.
2.1 This agreement shall start from the date you sign the booking confirmation form (in-store) and will continue until we have repaired or otherwise returned your device, and received any payment due from you.
2.2 We shall make all reasonable efforts to repair your device subject to part availability and under the terms of any relevant warranty/guarantee. We shall perform our service with the upmost care and attention to detail.
2.3 We shall use high quality parts for the repair of all devices.
2.4 We will require the passcode of your device to test before and after repair. Should you prefer to retain this information, we can still proceed with a repair but will not be able to perform a full functionality test on your device post repair check. If you are unable or unwilling to provide your passcode/password, we will replace all relevant components in line with the fault(s) identified. However, as we are unable to complete a full functionality test on your device, no warranty will be offered as we cannot confirm the repair has been successful.
2.5 Any ETA or turnaround time for completion of your repair is an estimate only and does not form any obligation under the terms of this Agreement. We will aim to return your device as soon as possible, however, any Level 3 repairs (i.e. repairs to the mainboard) may take 7 working days or more to complete. Any stated turnaround time is also linked to the relevant parts being available for the repair to be completed.
2.6 We will notify you (via e-mail/text) when your device has been repaired/unrepaired and is available for collection in-store. If the product is not collected within 15 days of receiving notification and have not received payment, we reserve the right to scrap, sell or recycle the unit. If by Selling, Scrapping or recycling your device we have any financial shortfall whatsoever, we reserve the right to pass your details onto our debt collection agency partner for complete recovery which will incur further costs to yourself and will also affect your credit score.
2.7 We reserve the right to retain your device until any and all outstanding payments are made.
2.8 If for any reason we are unable to complete a repair, or the repair will incur further costs payable by you over and above the initial repair price, we will notify you via telephone and/or email. If no fault is found on your device or you choose to decline a revised quote, we will return your device unrepaired.
2.9 Use of our repair service may void your manufacturer’s warranty. If you are in any doubt as to the validity of your warranty, please make contact with the manufacturer prior to utilising our service.

2.11 The warranty offered by us is linked to a specific device as identified by its IMEI or serial number and to a specific customer as identified by the records on our system. The warranty will cover the customer for any reoccurrence of the original fault and for the part replaced/repaired only. However, if additional faults arise, they will not be covered under the terms of this warranty. Furthermore, the warranty will not cover accidental damage, and is non-transferable should the device change ownership.
