(Please note – the terms discussed below are as at the time this article was written – 22 May 2020. Terms and conditions may have changed since then. Refer to your job documentation for the applicable T’s & C’s)
- Whilst every effort will be made to have your job completed by the estimated date it is subject to workload and any unforeseen difficulties in processing your job, or jobs ahead of yours.
- We can only estimate a price based on what we can see. Defects such as damage or corrosion may be found in unseen or non-obvious areas during processing. Such defects will usually be dealt with, without seeking approval from you, however it is important to understand that your final price may vary from the estimate given if we encounter such issues during processing. If it will add less than 25% more to the price, we will automatically proceed without your approval. If it will be greater than 25% more, we will contact you for approval before proceeding (Note – we will not contact you in relation to zinc diecast items – see point 3). If you decide not to proceed with the variation you will only be required to pay for the work completed up to that point.
- Deep corrosion treatment work will automatically proceed on zinc diecast items IF deep corrosion is found during processing. If this occurs, you will automatically be charged up to double the price estimated to complete the affected item/s.
