Full terms and conditions

There are NO limits to the number of repairs to your equipment which can be approved during the period of your plan.

Repair work authorised by Retracare will be carried out during our repairers’ normal working hours only, which are typically Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Applications for repairs of equipment will only be considered where the equipment is no longer covered by any manufacturers or repairer’s guarantee for call – out and labour charges.

You must operate your equipment in line with the manufacturer’s instructions at ALL times and must not modify in any way.

Your equipment must not have been lost, stolen, misused, neglected, poorly installed, subject to malicious damage, or damage caused by fire, explosion, floods, lightning, storms, frost or other bad weather conditions, rust, corrosion or water.

Your equipment must not be subject to a current manufacturer recall.

Your equipment must be used in a domestic environment ONLY. Equipment used in a non-domestic or commercial environment must be subject to our prior approval in writing.

Your equipment must be repaired within the United Kingdom, unless we agree otherwise in writing.

You are liable for the cost of repairs if there is no fault found with the equipment, or to the extent that it requires routine maintenance, cleaning, servicing, cosmetic repairs (e.g. damage to paintwork, dents or scratches) or where there is any problem with the supply of electricity, gas or water supply. You should always check your services before reporting any fault.

Payment will not be approved for costs arising from being unable to use your equipment (e.g. food spoilage) or for any other loss or damage not included under your plan benefits which arises from the breakdown of your equipment, including any costs to remove or reinstate built – in or fitted equipment. If, when you require breakdown service, there is any other service agreement or an insurance policy under which you are entitled to claim, we may only pay an appropriate proportion.

We recommend you back up or store any data/files on a regular basis as we will not restore any data/ files in the event of your product requiring a repair.
