Repair Services Terms & Conditions
The term ‘Apple Fix, ‘us’, ‘we’ or ‘our’ refers to the owner of the website. The term ‘you’ or ‘your’ refers to the user or viewer of our website, or customer to our repair service(s). The term ‘device’ refers to the mobile telephone or music device that you will be sending to us for repair service(s).
If you send payment via PayPal for our repair services, or drop off your device to our designated drop off point, this is taken as your acceptance of the terms and conditions set out in the five sections below. Any actions taken by any party will be governed by these terms and conditions, and all parties are legally bound by them from the onset of any repair service(s):
1. Sending your device for repair services
- 1.1 After you have completed the online purchasing process for one or more of our repair services, you must send your device to the address provided in order to obtain the repair services. This excludes customers who have completed the Drop-in Service Request Form.
- 1.2 You are permitted to use any delivery or courier service to send your device to us. However, we operate a P.O. BOX system, to which not every service provider will deliver packages. We recommend that you use Australian Post Overnight Delivery service. Please note that we are not affiliated with Australian Post in any way.
- 1.3 You must send your device entirely at your own risk. Our recommended delivery service includes an insurance policy to cover up to $500 AUD as standard, which can be increased if you so wish.
- 1.4 Your device will be returned to the address specified on your PayPal account. We cannot be held responsible if this is the wrong or out-of-date address, so please ensure this information is correct at all times.
2. Whilst your device is in our possession (applies to both send-in and drop-off repairs)
- 2.1 At no point does your device become our responsibility. You are using our services entirely at your own risk; and by doing so acknowledge that such a risk exists that your device may become lost, damaged or stolen during transit or whilst in storage.
- 2.2 Whilst we are in temporary possession of your device, we do not assume ownership of the device. We will take necessary precautionary steps to avoid the device being lost, damaged or stolen whilst it is on our premises (on your behalf), but you must acknowledge that we cannot accept any responsibility for your device at any time.
- 2.3 If, during the selected repair service performed on your device, further accidental physical damage occurs, we will replace any physically damaged parts. We will not inform you if this happens. By sending your device to us, we will assume your permission to replace not only the originally damaged part(s), but also any other part(s) accidentally physically damaged during the repair process.
- 2.4 If, during the selected repair service performed on your device, further accidental physical damage occurs that cannot be resolved by replacing components, we will inform you of this. This instance will most likely happen if damage occurs to the ‘logic board’. We take every precaution possible to avoid damage to this part and any technicians are trained in how to carefully handle them.
- 2.5 We will pay for the repair of any accidental physical damage to your device that does not come under our range of services. This includes sending your device to another third-party service provider to obtain repair services. We will choose which service provider will complete the repairs, and will endeavour to obtain the services as quickly as is reasonably possible after the damage occurs and after informing you of the situation. Once the device is received back to us, we will send the device back to you. You will receive a refund for the cost of the original repair service, minus the cost of delivery (currently $15 AUD). This partial refund will be issued using PayPal’s (© PayPal, Inc.) online transaction refund function.
- 2.6 If the accidental physical damage caused to your device cannot be repaired by us or a third-party service provider, we will pay for the replacement of the logic board. This will be to the same or equivalent specification as the original logic board inside your device. We will endeavour to source the replacement logic board as quickly as is reasonably possible, because we do not hold logic boards in stock. This may be several days or weeks from the date the damage occurs. Replacing the logic board will mean the data on your device (including contacts, messages, photographs, music, etc.) will be lost. Please use the back-up restore function on your iTunes (© Apple Inc.) program on your computer to restore this data onto your new logic board. The damaged logic board will be returned to you with your device. You may wish to salvage data from this if you did not complete the back-up process prior to sending your device for repair services (you will have been clearly advised to do this). We cannot accept any responsibility for loss of sentimental value, income or intellectual property resulting from the loss of any data from your device.
- 2.7 Due to the volatile nature of the software and hardware on your device, it may so happen that your device loses data during the repair process, despite not suffering any accidental physical damage. This includes, but is not limited to, your device entering ‘Restore’ or ‘DFU’ mode. We cannot accept any responsibility for any data lost from your device in any way. You are using our services entirely at your own risk.
3. If your device cannot be repaired
- 3.1 You are responsible for selecting and purchasing the correct repair option based on the damage (visible or otherwise) sustained to your device, using the information given on this website as a guide only. If the technician discovers that you have selected the incorrect repair option, or that your device needs further repair services to sufficiently return to working condition, you will be contacted via email at the first instance. If we do not receive a reply from this email, we will attempt to contact you via telephone, using the number provided on the repair form you filled in. We will inform you of the state of your device, and provide advice on what repairs are needed. You can then choose to receive the correct repairs on your device (subject to extra payment or partial refund), or you can choose to have your device returned to you under section 3.2 (see below). If any of these situations occur, the ’24 hour repair’ promotional policy (see section 4) will no longer apply, but we will try to return your device to you as soon as is reasonably possible.
- 3.2 If it is discovered that your device cannot be repaired using our range of services (whether it be under the originally purchased service or not – see section 3.1), your device will be returned to you un-repaired. A partial refund will be issued consisting of the original cost of the service, minus $15.00 AUD, which covers the cost of return delivery and a small payment for any parts used and the time spent working on your device. This partial refund will be issued using PayPal’s (© PayPal, Inc.) online transaction refund function. We will inform you if this situation occurs via email. If this situation occurs, the ‘same day repair’ promotional policy (see section 4) will no longer apply, but we will try to return your device to you as soon as is reasonably possible. The charges apply to each repair service completed on your device, e.g. if you purchased three repair services for the device, and two were unsuccessful, the $15.00 AUD charge would apply twice, for the two unsuccessful repair services.
- 3.2.1 If you used our drop-in repair services, the charge will be reduced to $15.00 AUD for each unsuccessful repair service completed. Payment for the charge(s) would then be due, instead of payment for the repair service(s) themselves.
- 3.3 Should you discover, after receiving your iPhone back, that the repair has not been successful; you must notify us by sending an email message to email@example.com. We will then assess the situation, and may ask that you provide photographic evidence of the problem (if applicable).
- 3.3.1 If we reach a conclusion that there is a problem with the repair service provided to you, we take one of two actions. We will decide which action to take and it will be from the following list:
- a) We will ask that you return the device to the address specified, after which we will assess the situation and make any further repairs (if necessary). You are responsible for paying the delivery cost involved in sending your device back to us, whilst we will cover the cost of returning the device back to you after the assessment and re-repair.
- - OR -
- b) We will issue a partial refund consisting of the original cost of the service, minus $15.00 AUD, which covers the cost of return delivery and a small payment for any parts used and the time spent working on your device. This partial refund will be issued using PayPal’s (© PayPal, Inc.) online transaction refund function. The charges apply to each repair service completed on your device, e.g. if you purchased three repair services for the device, and two were unsuccessful, the $15.00 AUD charge would apply twice, for the two unsuccessful repair services. If you used our drop-in repair services, the charge will be reduced to $15.00 AUD for each unsuccessful repair service completed. Payment for the charge(s) would then be due, instead of payment for the repair service(s) themselves.
4. Timescale of repair services
- 4.1 Our website advertises a ’24 hour repair’ promotional policy. This means that we will aim to complete the purchased repairs on your device within 24 hour that we receive the device in our possession (hereby named ‘Day 2’), after the day that you have sent your device to us (hereby named ‘Day 1’). Day 1 and Day 2 may not be consecutive if the delivery service takes longer than expected. We will also try to send your device back to you on the same day that we receive your device and complete the repair services (Day 2), in order for you to receive them on the day hereby named ‘Day 3’. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. There may be times when we experience a high volume of repairs, and we are therefore unable to process and repair your device on Day 2. Other reasons may include, but are not limited to, staff illness, short notice medical or family emergencies, or natural/human disaster/event. You will not necessarily be informed that the repair of your device will not meet our ‘same day’ promotion. We will always endeavour to repair and return your device to you as soon as is reasonably possible.
- 4.2 The ‘same day repair’ promotional policy only applies to devices received the day after payment, or two days after payment. This means that the device must be sent out by you either the same day, or the next day after payment, if you are using a ‘next day’ delivery service.
- 4.3 Our working days are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (this excludes Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and Bank Holidays).
- 4.4 Devices received on a Friday (Friday being Day 2) may not be returned back to you until the following Monday (Monday being Day 3).
- 4.5 Our ‘same day repair’ promotional policy is in no way whatsoever legally binding, contractual or otherwise. We have no obligation to meet this timescale.
- 4.6 Situations covered in section 3 (where your device cannot be repaired) are not covered by our ‘same day repair’ promotional policy.
- 5.1 A signed receipt for any repair work completed can be provided upon request. For send-in repairs, your email confirmation for your PayPal (© PayPal, Inc.) payment is taken as the primary receipt for the services you receive from us.
