Repair Terms & Conditions
AGREEMENT FOR REPAIR
The terms set out in these Conditions of Repair (“Agreement”) shall apply to the service we provide to repair your device(s), and/or any accessories listed (“Equipment”) on the collection receipt. Reference to “us”, “we” and “our” refer to Ask Magic Mike and references to “you” and “your” are references to you, the person addressed on this form.
ALL REPAIRS (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED)
This Agreement shall commence from the date you pass the device to an Ask Magic Mike representative and shall continue until we have repaired or otherwise returned your Equipment (“Services”), whichever is sooner, and received any payment due from you.
We shall make all reasonable efforts to repair your Equipment subject to the availability of any parts required and/or the terms of any relevant guarantee or warranty. We shall perform the Services using our reasonable care and skill.
Any time estimate for completion of the service, which may be given to you, is an estimate only and does not form any obligation under the terms of this Agreement.
We shall notify you when the device has been repaired by phone or email and is available to return or collection. If you do not collect the Equipment within 30 days, we may dispose of the Equipment. Any sum obtained on disposal will be used to meet any unpaid estimate or repair charges you are liable to pay and any remaining balance will be payable by you accordingly.
If we are unable to complete the Service for any reason, or the Service will incur further costs payable by you, we will notify you immediately.
Our out of warranty/chargeable repairs are guaranteed for three (3) months from the date the device is returned to you from our offices or repair done on site. For liquid damaged devices, the warranty is only valid for 30 days and only relates to any parts that were fitted during the repair. If the Equipment develops an additional fault unrelated to the original repair, the repair warranty contained in this paragraph will not apply. The warranty includes the repaired part(s) only and does not include further damage to the repaired part(s). We are not liable for the postage costs of getting the device to us, but we do cover return postage for warranty repairs only.
For devices that have dents to the metal rear covers or frame surrounds (particularly iPhone front glass repairs), our technicians may need to straighten or file away small areas to ensure the correct positioning of replacement front glass/screens and to prevent any sharp edges causing injury. We make every effort to minimise the cosmetic appearance of such repairs. Generally, it is not necessary to replace the rear covers for minor dents, but if you prefer to have a cosmetically ‘perfect’ repair, we are able to fit brand new replacement rear covers for an additional charge if required.
We conduct testing both before and after repair to identify any additional faults with your device. For devices that have been given to us following accidental damage e.g. the device has been dropped or has experienced water damage, some internal components can be weakened but still appear to function normally. Whilst these weaknesses may not be evident on pre-testing, the repair process itself (by opening up the device) can sometimes cause these weakened components to develop a fault. Our technicians take great care when repairing your devices, but prevention of further damage to an already weakened component cannot be guaranteed. We will notify you of any additional repairs that may be required and will request your approval before proceeding. We are not liable if additional faults are identified as a result of the repair process itself. Whilst we make every effort to warn customers if there is potential for additional faults/complications, this cannot always be known in advance.
Mobile devices that are sold as being waterproof are originally sealed in the manufacturers’ factory with special machines and special liquid proof gaskets. When we carry out a repair on a waterproof device that involves opening and closing the device, we cannot guarantee that your device will be waterproof after the repair process has been completed. We replace all gaskets required but only the manufacturers of the device have access to the specialised equipment required. However, we always use the best possible techniques.
ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR WARRANTY REPAIRS
The three (3) month Warranty does not apply if the device has been subject to further accidental damage. For clarification, the definition for accidental damage includes (but is not limited to) cracked screens, dented frame’s or bend and any other form of drop or impact as below
- any mishandling that causes subsequent damage to the relevant device(s);
- water or other liquid damage;
- damage or faults resulting from attempted customer or third-party repairs at any time;
- software issues unrelated to the repair and/or any damage resulting from viruses or other malicious pieces of software that may have been transmitted during servicing or escaped detection; (e) any jail broken or “rooted” device;
- water proof devices, as Ask Magic Mike cannot guarantee the device(s) will remain water proof following the Repair Services;
- new damages unrelated to the original Repair Services; and/or
- any loss of data occurring as a result of the repair – customers is advised to back up all data on the device(s) to be repaired prior to the repair. Ask Magic Mike will not accept any liability for data or software which is lost, corrupted, deleted or altered during repair. You accept full responsibility for all software and data on your device(s) and Ask Magic Mike is not required to advise or remind customers of appropriate backup and other procedures.
Where repair is to be carried out under a relevant warranty, we may ask you to provide sufficient proof of any warranty, so please keep receipts supplied at the time of repair.
If the nature of the repair falls outside the terms of your warranty, then you may incur a charge for the repair. However, we will endeavour to notify you of any such charge prior to undertaking any work.
ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR CHARGEABLE REPAIRS
If the repair to your device is not covered by a warranty or the nature of the repair is beyond any terms of your warranty, we will charge you for the repair in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
The cost of repair will be calculated where possible in accordance with our standard charges as published from time to time on our website.
The cost of repair may not fall within our standard charges where the device is not generally supported by us, device repairs are sub-contracted or the nature of repair is not within our standard rates of repair. If this is the case, we will provide you with an estimate of the cost of repair and we will not repair the Equipment until we have received your acceptance of new estimate.
If we are unable to find fault on your device or decide not to go ahead with any repairs, we will return your device to you un-repaired. Devices which are beyond economic repair we will not charge any fees and will let you know of this decision as soon as possible. We may on occasion keep your device until all charges payable have been paid.

- supplying the Services again
