2. PROVIDING SERVICES
2.1 These Terms and Conditions will be binding between the Company and you, the customer, upon booking your vehicle in for work with us. Where you, the customer, are a consumer, these Terms and Conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
2.2 We need certain information from you which is necessary for us to provide services. Examples include the make, model, engine, age and mileage of your vehicle. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided this information or it is inaccurate.
2.3 It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the vehicle is in correct working order without underlying faults. We make no representations or warranties that the services and products we supply will not cause damage to your vehicle, owing to, but not limited to, an underlying fault or poor servicing. Prior to carrying out any software tuning to a vehicle, we will carry out a basic inspection. We do not make any representations or warranties that this inspection will identify all underlying defects of your vehicle which may cause your vehicle to fail after software tuning has been carried out. In circumstances where the condition of your vehicle is such that we advise you, that the carrying out of our services may cause damage to your vehicle over time, and you chose to proceed with our services, you do so at your own risk. High mileage vehicles or vehicles that are poorly maintained are examples of where we may advise you not to proceed. Where an advisory notice is documented on this invoice, we accept no liability for any damage caused, directly or indirectly, to your vehicle, or any financial loss or expenses incurred by or imposed on or in connection with your use of our services.
2.4 We make no representations or warranties that our services will not expose or exacerbate a previously unknown fault or weakness with your vehicle, which may ultimately lead to an engine failure.
2.5 We make no representations or warranties that the use of our services will not invalidate any manufacturer or 3rd party warranty you may currently have in place.
3. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SERVICES
3.1 In the unlikely event that there is any defect with the services we provide or products we have supplied:
(a) contact us and tell us as soon as reasonably possible;
(b) give us a reasonable opportunity to repair or fix any defect; and
(c) we will use every effort to repair or fix the defect as soon as reasonably practicable and, in any event, within 60 days.
3.2 You will not have to pay for us to repair or fix a defect with the services or products under this clause.
3.3 We will not accept liability for any work carried out by a 3rd party in circumstances where you have not afforded us the opportunity to rectify any defect in accordance with clause 3.1.
3.4 Where you have afforded us the opportunity to rectify any defect in accordance with clause 3.1 and we have not done so within 60 days, we will only be liable for work carried out by a 3rd party where you have obtained our written permission and provided us with three written quotes in advance of having the work carried out.
3.5 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to services not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials we use are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect these legal rights.
4. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
