All repairs (with the exception of software related, battery, liquid damaged devices, Microsoldering work, refurbished devices, custom PC builds and budget part repairs) come with AJ I.T Services lifetime warranty which starts from the date the job has been completed. If the nature of the repair falls outside the terms of your warranty, then you may incur a charge for the repair. The warranty only covers for the original repair. For example, if you pay for a screen repair and the screen becomes faulty, you will be covered with the lifetime warranty. If any additional faults occur that are not related to the original repair this will not be covered under warranty and will be chargeable.
If you take your repaired device, custom PC build or refurbished device to a third-party repairer, this will void your warranty. If the device has been opened by yourself, damaged accidentally or shows little to any physical evidence of damage (scratches, cracks etc), it will not be covered under warranty.

CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA STORED ON DEVICE:
AJ I.T Services agrees not to disclose to a third party any information or data files stored on or recovered from the client’s equipment during the job.
Please note: The pin code, unlock code or password is required for your device to carry out a fully successful repair or diagnostic, this is because the device and all it’s features and functionality have to be tested before completing a repair. This also means I can provide you with a confident warranty for your device knowing everything is working as it should. Your privacy and personal data is taken very seriously by AJ I.T Services in a professional and trustworthy manner giving you piece of mind that your pin code, unlock code or password is not used for any other purpose and no personal data is accessed as part of the features and functionality test. Additionally, you can back up your device and restore it to factory settings. This means AJ I.T Services is given a device with no data on it, after a repair you can restore your data again bringing the device back to it’s previous state prior to repair. If AJ I.T Services can’t carry out the features and functionality test for your device after a repair you may not receive a warranty depending on the nature of the repair. This is because it will cost AJ I.T Services extra time and effort to fix any issues that could have been resolved during the first repair attempt.
AJ I.T Services work on a first come first serve basis. However, if you need an urgent repair, an expedited service is available, for repairs only, and are charged:
• Mobile phones – £55.00
• Tablets – £55.00
• Computers – £45.00
• Anything else – £45.00
BACKING UP DATA:
AJ I.T Services will make every possible effort to preserve your data and, depending on the nature of the job, may do a backup of data before starting, however, it should be noted that there are NO GUARANTEES whatsoever that the clients data and files will remain intact after the repairs. IT IS THEREFORE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ALL THE DATA AND INFORMATION STORED ON THE DEVICE REQUIRING REPAIRS IS APPROPRIATELY BACKED UP TO OTHER STORAGE DEVICES PRIOR TO HANDING OVER FOR REPAIRS.
For back up, data recovery and data transfers, AJ I.T Services will only hold a copy of your data for a maximum of 1 month, giving you enough time to check over your data and make sure you have everything you need.
CANCELLING YOUR JOB:
If, for any reason, you decide to cancel your job you must do this before any parts for your job has been purchased or over 24 hours before your appointment time, and your job will be refunded to you in full. If you cancel your job at an advanced stage when you have already committed to the repair, or within a 24 hour period, you will be liable to pay a £35.00 cancellation fee due to being unable to fill the slot on such short notice, you will also be liable to pay any parts and materials purchased for your job including returned shipping costs and all restocking fees (if any), the remaining amount will be refunded back to you.
If parts for your job are not required and you agree to go ahead with a job you may be charged a diagnostic or repair attempt fee if you change your mind after any works have already started or been carried out on the device.
DIAGNOSTIC AND REPAIR ATTEMPS FEES:
AJ I.T Services charges £35.00 per diagnostic fee, this is simply to cover the time and effort that goes into diagnosing your device if you decide not to go ahead with the repair. Please note, if you decide to go ahead with the repair the diagnostic fee is waved and you will only be charged the price of the repair. Repair attempt fees can range from £35.00 to over £100.00 per device depending on the nature of the repair attempt however this will be discussed with you before proceeding.
Please wipe down and clean any visible surface of your device before handing it in for maintenance servicing or repairs. Any device in any poor hygiene state will be subject to a £10.00 cleaning fee, for example, a laptop covered in lots of dust, debris, smoking ash, dried/ non-dried liquid spills or dried coughing marks on the screen and keyboard. Please note, you don’t have to worry about the inside of the device. AJ I.T Services recommends 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol or Surface Polish for any plastics/ metals and glass cleaner for screens.
Payment is due in full upon completion of a successful job, prior to the release of the equipment whether shipped to the clients address or picked up from AJ I.T Service’s place of business unless by special previous arrangement.

COLLCETION TIME AND/OR FAILURE TO PAY:
Due to AJ I.T Services limited storage capacity; your device will be held for up to 60 days after you have been contacted to collect. After 60 days, if AJ I.T Services has not heard from you or received payment in full, your device will be considered abandoned and AJ I.T Services will have the right to sell the device to recover service cost and parts used to fix your device, or recycle the devices if it’s non-functional. AJ I.T Services cannot guarantee that your equipment will not be discarded after the initial 60-day period, so it’s critical that you pick up your equipment on time or make arrangements with AJ I.T Services to store your equipment temporarily. If you make arrangements to pick up after 60 days, or if you have paid in full but can’t collect until after 60 days, you will be billed £95.00 a month for storage which will be billed starting from the first day after the 60th day.
