TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Chip Repairs:

Only what has been agreed upon will be repaired.

If a chip “runs” in the repair process, Autoscreenz will not be held responsible. Repairs are done at the client’s risk.

The repair warranty is valid for one year and is not transferable.

Please register your repair here: warranty registration

The original invoice must accompany all warranty claims. Tampering with the windscreen will make the warranty null and void.

When we perform a repair job, the objective is to prevent the damage from spreading further.

There is always a risk that the glass may break during or after the repair. Our trained technicians only use Autoscreenz Diamond Resin™ and the results have proved that great results are achieved in 99% of repairs.

All chips and cracks are unique. If the windscreen breaks during the repair, or if the customer is unhappy with the repair result, then we will endeavour to assist in getting you a replacement windscreen and the cost of the repair will be deducted from the cost of the replacement windscreen. If the customer does not accept the quote for the replacement windscreen from our supplier, the client will accept the repair as we cannot guarantee results due to the fact that it’s broken glass and it is unpredictable.

Autoscreenz does not undertake to make any monetary payment directly to the customer.

LIABILITY OF THE FITMENT CENTRE AND TECHNICIAN

Autoscreenz will not accept liability to replace any windscreen if a repair is unsuccessful or cracks further during or after the repair process.

RISKS

There are risks associated with a windscreen repair.

These are:

  • the possibility of the windscreen breaking or the damage spreading further during the repair process.
  • the age, size and type of damage to the windscreen which can affect the repair and result in a blemish remaining on the glass.

Other work carried out:

All or any part of the work to be carried out may be carried out on its behalf by any agent or it’s subcontractor appointed.

Expected completion date is approximate only and time is not of the essence of any contract of work.

Headlight Restoration:

While we continually research new technologies and methods to improve Autoscreenz, we cannot guarantee that our methods will satisfy all our clients specific whims or wants regarding our services and products.

No guarantee can be given that the headlight backing and sealing will be exactly the same as it was when manufactured when new. If it so happens that there is a leak or a problem with the light after repair, the customer will have to remove the headlight at the customer’s cost and bring it in for repair and re-sealing or service . No discussions will be entered regarding this as fitting and removal of lights is not a service Autoscreenz provides. Once the coating has been applied to the lights, a 24 hour curing period is necessary for the lights to cure. Once we hand over the completed service, and the customer accepts that they are satisfied with the results and service provided, the customer is fully responsible for the lights. The car would need to be kept in an enclosed space for a minimum of 24 hours. We cannot guarantee that the weather / any act of God including pets etc. touching the lights afterward. Lights should only be cleaned again after a full 48 hour cure and never pressure washed as this could remove the coating. There is no warranty on chipped or scratched coatings. If there is a scratch or a chip in the coating then the lights would need to be redone at the customer’s expense. We cannot be held responsible once we hand over the lights or leave the customer’s premises.

Washing and polishing with abrasives should also be avoided.

If you are in doubt about this, please discuss this with management before going ahead and using our services.

Repairs are done at the client’s risk.

The repair guarantee is valid for as long as you own the vehicle and the guarantee is not transferable.

Please register your repair here: guarantee registration

Any headlight coating can be removed from the lens by pressure washing too close to the vehicle; even the factory coating and paint can be stripped from the vehicle. To prevent this from ever happening, Autoscreenz recommends that the headlights never be pressure washed.

We recommend waiting at least 24 hours to hand wash the vehicle, and one week before going through an automatic carwash.

We guarantee our headlight restoration coating for 1 year. If you have any issues, original receipt must be presented for any claims.

Goods remain the property of Autoscreenz until paid for in full.
