Repair Terms and Conditions

In these terms and conditions “we“, “us" and “our" refer toEZ Computers Ltd

By using services provided by us you are entering into a contract with us. The terms below set out our obligations to you and what you are agreeing to.

Repair Service

Free Diagnostics

We offer a free diagnostic service to all our residential customers on condition that we repair your item prior to returning it to you. If you decide to not go ahead with the repair, a nominal charge of £20.00 will be applied. If your item is beyond economical repair we are happy to recycle your item in lieu of our nominal diagnostics fee.

Please note we are not able to provide certification of safe data disposal.

No Fix No Fee

Our “No Fix No Fee" service is applicable if we are unable to diagnose the cause of the issues you may be having with your device or the device is deemed to be unfixable. When we are able to diagnose the cause but you decide not to proceed with the repair, our labour fee will still apply.

Data Security

While we do not intentionally delete any data, we do not accept responsibility for the safety of your data under any circumstances. Ensure you have backed up any documents, photos, music, videos, etc. before sending your item to us.

We can offer a backup service for all systems before we carry out any work. Please include a data backup request when contacting us for a repair quote. All backups are restored to the original item unless external storage such as a USB Hard Drive or USB Flash Drive of sufficient capacity is purchased. A data backup may not be available if the original source is corrupt, damaged or otherwise non-viable.

Data Recovery

Data recovery is a labour intensive process which may take longer to perform than a standard repair. Data recovery cannot be guaranteed in all situations. For example, if the source device is corrupted or otherwise faulty, data recovery may not be feasible.

Due to the nature of data recovery, the labour charge remains applicable even if no data is recovered.

Operating System

Some repair jobs may require a wipe and re-install of the Operating System (Windows or OSX). A re-install will require a genuine license for the version to be installed. This will be a bare install with all necessary drivers and updates applied. You will need to re-install any other programs previously available on your system. We will contact you before going ahead and to offer a backup of your data.

Liability Exclusions

We attempt to minimise disruption to your item as much as possible but we cannot be held responsible for any unforeseen issues that may arise from any of our services.

We cannot be held responsible or liable to any service performed for you including but not limited to:

  • Any data loss, data corruption, loss of images, documents or other information.
