(1) Introduction

These terms and conditions govern your use of our website; by using our website, you accept these terms and conditions in full. If you disagree with any part of these terms and conditions, do not use our website.

(2) Console Doctor Repair Agreement

(a) The price stated on the Console Doctor website are Inc VAT. From 01/12/2011 - if your console is beyond economical repair, we will charge £10.00 to cover postage costs or offer a trade in deal for a Brand New console. Please see (l)

(b) The amount of time taken to repair specified faults is only an estimate. This time is not guaranteed, and is dependent on the availability of parts, and/or current workload.

(c) Consoles being sent to us for a trade-in deal are recycled as soon as they arrive at our premises (once we have assessed they are in acceptable condition). By confirming the order, you are giving permission for us to use your console in this way.

(d) All of our repair work is guaranteed for 90 days, this begins the date that the item is dispatched from our premises, providing the Console Doctor warranty seal is not tampered with or removed (also see f). This warranty is non-transferable or extendable.

(e) Console Doctor reserves the right to withhold your console until payment is received. If we have not received payment within 6 weeks from the date of repair/inspection, we are authorised to dispose of your console. This includes consoles which have been deemed beyond economical repair by our engineers.

(f) Warranty repairs only cover parts that have been replaced or repaired. This means we will not repair faults under warranty that have been caused by physical damage or negligence on the part of the user. Console Doctor reserves the right to determine the cause of the fault.

(g) Console Doctor will place a warranty sticker and a unique barcode on every console for warranty and internal tracking procedures.

(h) Warranty requests will be accepted if the issue described sounds as though it relates to our original repair. If we examine your console and deem that the fault does not relate to our original repair, we reserve the right to charge the customer for parts, labour and return postage.

(i) Although unlikely, data loss may occur during the repair process. It is therefore advisable that you back-up any files before sending the item. Console Doctor is not held responsible for any data loss that may occur.

(j) Please remove any accessories/peripherals wherever possible before sending the console to us for a repair, unless you feel that they contribute to the fault, or have been specifically requested to include them. This includes, but is not limited to, games, cables, and controllers.

(k) If you wish to change your delivery address for return postage, you must inform us before payment is made.

(l) The £10.00 charge also applies if a console is sent into us as a free estimate, and/or the customer wants to have the console returned without a repair being completed.

(m) For purposes of delivering the console to you, we are required to pass on your email address and telephone number to the courier company.

(n) You must retain your Collect+ receipt which is provided from the Collect+ store (The same applies to a Royal Mail receipt is you are using one of our Royal Mail free post labels). This is proof of postage and is needed to place a claim. Without the receipt we will not be able to supply a replacement machine.

(o) Console Doctor will update you via text message and email when we receive your item. If you do not receive confirmation within 7 days of postage, you must inform us immediately so that we can investigate with the couriers. In the unlikely event that your item is missing, failure to do so may result in us being unable to provide a replacement item.

(p) Console Doctor will inform you via text message and email when your repaired item has been dispatched from our premises. If you have not received your item within 7 days from the time of dispatch, you must contact us so that we can investigate the situation. Failure to do so may result in us being unable to supply a replacement machine.

(q) If, after an investigation, the parcel appears to be missing in transit, you must co-operate with Collect+/Yodel’s claim procedure in order for us to provide a replacement. We will deal with the claim on your behalf; however we will have to send a None Receipt of Goods form to you that will require your signature. This is a legal document that Yodel requires to process every claim. Similarly, if the item was damaged in transit, you will have to sign a Damage Disclaimer Form. Console Doctor will cover the postage costs for both forms.

(r) Provided the claim we submit against couriers is successful, Console Doctor will provide you with a like for like replacement (wherever possible) for your item. We will not cover you for replacement accessories/peripherals (see j).
