Stove Doctor Repair Terms & Conditions
1. All booking times are for a 2 or 3 hour period and are the arrival time of the technician and not the time in which the repair will be completed. E.g. 8-11am booking.
2. Please ensure there is an adult present at your property for the entire scheduled booking time. Please note that our technicians are not able to wait for someone to arrive. They are instructed to move on to the next booking if there is no one home. If we attend as requested the service call charge has been incurred, whether there is someone home or not.
3. The technician will endeavour to contact you on approach.
4. If the technician is running late they will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible. Please note that we will do everything we can to have the technician arrive on time, but due to unforeseen circumstances such as traffic or delays or delays on previous jobs we cannot guarantee this. No compensation, discounts or refunds will be paid due to late arrival.
5. Please ensure that no part of the appliance is used up to 2 hours prior to the booking time. If the technician cannot work on your appliances due to it being used, you will be charged the service call plus labour and the repair will have to be re scheduled.
6. Please keep all children away from the area in which the technician is working. Please remember they are working with sharp and dangerous tools, electricity and gas which can be extremely dangerous. Safety is our number one priority.

10. If the required parts are not in stock we will arrange to obtain the parts from our suppliers. As soon as the parts are available our office will contact you to arrange a new appointment date to complete the repair.
