Here are our top 5 FAQ’s, which might help to answer any queries you have!

A: The service will be carried out by our specialist engineer who ensures the units are fulling cleaned and checked, including any necessary updates. Should there be any problems, you will be provided with a diagnosis including tailored advice and recommendations.

A: If you send equipment to us early (before the end of November), we promise to get your equipment back to you early in the new year - giving you peace of mind as you plan for the Spring.
Q: What will it cost?
A: A full service will start from £50, depending on the equipment that is being serviced. If you are sending in more than 5 units by 31st November you will receive a 10% discount. (cannot be used in conjunction with other offers).
