If there is no anti-virus software installed, the company may need to run virus scans before the machine can be connected to the internet. If this is necessary, the evaluation charge will increase accordingly.
For onsite work, our minimum fee is £45. This may vary on your location and the work required. This covers a call out charge and the first 30 minutes onsite. This is payable if the visit is cancelled less than two hours before or if the customer is not available at the agreed time.

New items will have a standards one year warranty from the invoice date unless stated differently.

As previously stated there is a minimum evaluation charge of £30 for any work booked into the workshop. If the work can be completed by the company within that amount, it will.
