Terms and conditions:
WARRANTY: 90 day repair warranty begins on day unit is returned from service; no exceptions. Warranty covers recurring problems of the same nature, as enumerated on the service order on which repair work was detailed. Any new or unrelated problems on the equipment under warranty will incur new repair costs (parts/labor). Warranty is voided by anyone other than MONTROSE AND ASSOCIATES, INC.. entering the unit to attempt to make repairs during the warranty period.
ESTIMATES: Refused estimates will incur a $95.00 evaluation charge. All estimates are preliminary. If further problems are uncovered that could not be uncovered prior to completing initial repairs, a new estimate will be given. ABANDONED ITEMS: Equipment left over 90 days will be considered abandoned, and MONTROSE & ASSOCIATES, INC. reserves the right to sell, or dispose of.
TURNAROUND: Normal turnaround time runs two to five days, depending on parts availability and workload. For a priority (“quick turnaround”), there will be 40% premium added to the normal labor rate. Quick turnaround moves your piece to the head of the line (only behind any others who made quick turnaround request prior), however quick turnaround guarantees nothing further. All parts not stocked will be ordered and shipped “next day”, unless otherwise requested. Shipping charges for parts, or entire pieces of equipment shipped to us for repair and then returned, are the customers responsibility. Frequent phone inquiries regarding the status of equipment under repair, guarantees longer turnaround times!
