Delivery of Products and Services
Repair Aid London is able to repair most domestic appliances. However, the manufacturer, appliance type, model and age will have a major influence on whether replacement part(s) can be obtained and ultimately whether the repair can be completed. When a specific appliance is no longer made the manufacturer will only stock replacement parts for a given period.
Once in the Customer’s premises the Repair Aid London engineer will provide the Diagnostic Services on the appliance covered by the Booking Confirmation and repair the appliance. Upon completion of the Repairs and/or Diagnostic Services the Customer must pay the Repair Aid London engineer the price confirmed in the Booking Confirmation.
In case that during the visit and/or delivery of the Repairs and/or Diagnostic Services the Repair Aid London engineer locates faulty part(s) that need(s) to be replaced:
- and the part(s) can be replaced during the visit (available as part of the Repair Aid London engineer’s dedicated spare Products kit), upon price agreement and Customer’s approval the repair will be carried out immediately on-site. The Customer must agree to pay to the Repair Aid London engineer the Price of all agreed Diagnostic Services, Repairs and charges for part(s).
- and the engineer is technically unable to repair the appliance (e.g., because the part needed is not available), the Customer must agree to pay to the Repair Aid London engineer the Price for the Diagnostic Services provided. Upon payment and Customer’s confirmation for the spare part Order the Repair Aid London engineer will send a report to Repair Aid London head office including a request for the spare part needed. Availability, price and delivery time will be confirmed with the Customer over the telephone by a Repair Aid London employee. If the Customer on this basis approves the details mentioned above the Order is placed. The part is tested in the Repair Aid London workshop upon delivery. A new suitable time and date for the Repair visit is agreed with the customer. Upon completion the appliance is tested and once confirmed that it operates normally the Customer agrees to pay the fixed labour as well as the charge for the spare part ordered.
If the Customer does not accept the Price for the Products offered by Repair Aid London the Customer can purchase the part from any other supplier and then agree on a time and date for a Repair service visit with Repair Aid London. Repair Aid London will carry out the Services and test the appliance upon completion. The Customer must agree to pay to the Repair Aid London engineer the previously agreed fixed labour charge amount.
In case that during the visit and/or delivery of the Repairs and/or Diagnostic Services the fault of the appliance is found to be as a result of misuse, neglect or poor installation or, the appliance type or fault is not as described originally Repair Aid London reserves the right to charge the Customer the full labour rate.
You pay only for the Diagnostic Services, if Repair Aid London is unable to obtain spare parts from our suppliers to conduct the Repair of the appliance, so that Repair Aid London is unable to Repair your appliance
If the Repair is deemed to be beyond economical repair and the Customer prefers to purchase a new appliance, a Repair Aid London Sales Representative will assist the Customer advising the Customer on the range of Products Repair Aid London offers for sale online.
All spare Products Orders are placed only upon Customer’s confirmation of the Price and quantity of Products.

All quoted prices are exclusive of VAT, and VAT will be added to the Price if applicable. Cost of Products required to carry out a successful repair will be extra and are not included in the labour charge quoted. The duration of an on-site Repair / Diagnostic Service visit does not affect the labour charge applied.
