Warranties

Igadgettech warranty agreement begins the day initial repair was completed and lasts for 12 months from that date. The time between order completion notification and actual receipt of the order is also considered as a warranty period. If the device is submitted for a warranty repair during these 12 months period, the original warranty will not be extended, unless stated otherwise.

If the same problem re-occurs within 12 months of the original repair, Client has to complete Warranty Investigation Form and submit the device for Warranty Investigation, which is usually done within 2 working days (excluding transit times). If our investigation confirms the same fault reoccurred, Igadgettech will cover the cost of repair. However, charges will be incurred should additional parts are required to complete the repair. Any necessary replacement parts will be quoted for and Client will not be charged for these until we have an approval.

If after a repair, the client experiences problems, which were not originally disclosed to Igadgettech prior to the initial repair, the problem is classified as new and unrelated. These unrelated problems are, unfortunately, not covered by our warranty.

If we determine that the problem is not covered under our warranty, we will notify you and inform you of service alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis. If you decide not to proceed with the repair, we will retain the service charge of R450 as well as shipping fees.

Where items are returned as faulty and no fault is found by Igadgettech, a service charge of R 450 plus shipping expenses will be retained to cover the engineer’s time.

Igadgettech does not provide warranty for data or computer files either expressed or implied. Igadgettech disclaims any data warranty of any kind. Igadgettech will not be responsible for faults caused by viruses, malware or other computer hardware or software failures subsequent to any repair.

Diagnostics service and shipping fees are not covered under warranty. However, if Warranty Return Request is submitted and Warranty Investigation confirms the same fault has recured, both diagnostics service charge and shipping fees will be fully refunded.

The warranty on any hardware will be voided if warranty sticker placed on the warrantable equipment is removed, broken or tampered with. Any warranty work or repairs must be diagnosed and performed by Igadgettech exclusively or the warranty will be considered void.

Any warranty offered will become invalid if the manufacturers marked label is removed or tampered with in any way from the parts installed during a repair. Parts are only covered under warranty that fail due to manufacturing defects for the said parts and confirmed by the component manufacturer. Should the part fail because of mishandling of the equipment or inadequate subsequent servicing or failure from “fair wear and tear” the warranty becomes invalid.

Damage to a device or its components supplied by Igadgettech under a repair contract caused by a power surge or spikes, including but not limited to mains power and telecoms connections or other unspecified sources e.g. voltage fluctuation, amperage fluctuation, water ingress are not covered under the warranty.

Furthermore, the warranty does not cover for any loss or damage due to negligence, mishandling, accidental damage, theft, water flooding, war outbreak, electrical storms, fire outbreak, earthquakes, or any other act of God.

All shipping options are offered without insurance by default and we hold no responsibility for any loss or damages caused by our logistics partners. If you require items to be insured, please contact us and we will do so at an additional cost.

Please bear in mind warranty investigations can take up to 2 working days (excluding transit times). The warranty covers only the specific parts we identified as faulty during an evaluation and repaired. If we cannot detect any faults or will determine that your device developed new or additional faults you will be liable for transit and administration fees.

Manufacturers Warranties

During the performance of our services, we may affect a manufacturer’s warranty validity. It is the Clients responsibility to determine the consequences of our services under any manufacturer’s warranty and take the appropriate action necessary.

Administration Charges

In case of complimentary refunds, for e.g. when we decide to refund for failed repair or cancelled order, we reserve the right to charge a minimum amount of £9.99 administration charge to cover our time spent processing the order. Evaluation fee and delivery charges are non-refundable.

Board-Only Repair Policy

Igadgettech can repair your Printed Circuit Boards with quick turn around time, exceptional customer service and low costs. Boards that have become obsolete may contain components still available today, which can be replaced. Provided the components are identifiable, there is a very good chance that they will be recoverable. Failures are usually caused by solder paste or soldering connections failures and not IC’s or PCB’s. In these cases, we can remove identified components, refurbish leads, BGA’s and re-attach them back on boards. Our electronic engineers can quickly, efficiently and professionally remove, refurbish and replace all components mounted on Printed Circuit Boards. Operating equipment sourced from the best manufacturers from all over the world, we can keep your rework costs down. All of our repairs are completed at ESD safe and controlled environments.

 

By allowing us to carry out repair procedure all our clients agree to trust in engineers knowledge and equipment to carry out successful procedures, however in some cases due to the age of the PCB or inaccurate diagnostics provided by the customer the outcome is not as expected and can render the final repair unsuccessful. In these situations, Igadgettech cannot be held responsible and additional pricing might incur if a board is sent for further repairs.

Misquote

If we provided a quotation and subsequently discover that the quote is incorrect, we reserve the right to cancel the order and return your equipment without any repairs carried out. We will contact you at the earliest convenience to advise you of the situation and you will be given the option to proceed based on a newly revised quotation or the order can be cancelled.

If you choose to cancel the order, any monies paid in advance for the repairs will be refunded in full, minus administration fee, a minimum of R450. This excludes evaluation and shipping charges.

Igadgettech reserves the right to change their terms and conditions at any time without prior notice.
