Terms of Trade

Independent Appliance Care is committed to achieving high standards of professional service to its customers.  We view our customers as business partners, and seek the highest possible levels of customer satisfaction.

The Terms of Trade below are designed to support this mission.  They outline the relationship between us and you.  We warrant that we will perform to the highest standards, and in return you promise to treat us with respect, and pay your accounts on time. For payment options click here.

Due to rising costs we have reviewed our terms of trade.  One of the the largest costs we face is when we book a time to be at a customer’s premises, but they are not there as agreed.  We have therefore decided that to hold prices for customers who do keep their appointments we will charge those who do not the cost of attending when no one is home.

If we and our customers meet our mutual obligations then Independent Appliances will be able to deliver the highest quality of service to more customers.  It’s a win, win.

Best regards
Les Morrison, Managing Director
