In case the repair cannot be completed within the 5 days of the agreement you will be asked to complete a loan form on the Repair Order page of the site. You will also be asked to notify us of any change in the address for delivery of the loan unit if that is different form the address where you originally registered the unit.

We will provide a courier service to pick up your unit and bring it to our ‘Centralised Repair Centre’ CERC (Central European Repair Centre). In order to transport your unit safely please return it to the Service Centre in its original packaging. If this is no longer available please inform us. We can arrange a package if you require which you can order from us in the Repair Order process.
Units can only be collected from addresses within mainland countries where the service pack is in operation.
We target to collect the unit within one day of the repair order being issued. (plus one more day if a carton is required.) From then we intend on returning the unit to you within five working days from the collection date.
However, in the case of delays through customs or any other transportation matters arising as a matter of geographical location there may be a slightly longer period required. We aim to always keep this to a minimum.
You must make sure the unit is prepared and ready for the shipping date and time agreed with our contracted courier. Failure to keep to this may incur a charge.
Online status for the Centralised Service is available from collection till the unit is returned to you.
