Terms of Contract
We would strongly request that you please read the terms and conditions of sale including the returns and refunds policy so that you clearly understand these before entering into a contract of sale as we want you to be totally satisfied with our service. Once we have received your request for order and total payment for the goods and/or services we will send you a copy of your invoice detailing your complete order and this will form part of the legally binding Contract between us. HTA Ltd works in accordance with English laws and legislation, and governing regulations and are therefore governed by the English courts and judiciary system.
A call out fee which covers up to the first hours labour on site is £96 including VAT. Any additional hours labour are charged at an ongoing rate of £78 including VAT. These charges are payable on the day of the technicians visit along with the cost of any parts used that are not covered under a recognised Manufacturers warranty.
Payments can be made by cash or cheque and handed to the technician, or a card payment can be telephoned through to the main office of HTA. All payments are due on the day of the appointment. We aim to make all repairs on the day of our first visit but sometimes this is not always possible for various reasons such as but not limited to the following:
- more work than first anticipated or advised,
- more faults are found that were not originally reported and so the job requires more time and costs for additional parts.
- if parts are required that we do not have in stock at the time of the visit and so need to be ordered causing the job to be rebooked for an additional appointment to complete the works.
you will be notified of any other costs involved prior to work commencing so that you can make an informed decision as to whether you wish to proceed with further remedial works. The technician will advise you as to any of the above on the day of his visit. If you are not available then we will notify you at the earliest opportunity.
If you wish to proceed with a revisit/rebook then any time not utilised from up to the 1 hour booked on the original visit/booking will be carried forward to your revisit/rebook provided that full payment of the £96 has been received.
e.g. Technician is on site for 15 mins and finds that a revisit/rebook is required so the 45 minutes not utilised on the original visit is then carried forward to the revisit/rebook provided that the payment of the original call out of £96 has been paid in full.
This applies to ongoing jobs only and does not apply to new unrelated faults that may develop following a repair or a service.
Our technicians carry as many parts as possible on their vehicles and will stock any parts felt necessary prior to attending to a scheduled visit on site that they envisage will be required. However, as this is on the basis of the fault description provided, occasionally other parts may be required and a revisit/rebook may be required. Please see Revisit/Rebook above. If a part is not available in stock and has to be ordered in from our supplier then we will advise you of this as soon as possible and provide you with an estimated date of arrival and costs if applicable. Once the part is received we will book an appointment for you for the earliest available date.
