6.2 The performance of some of the Services may take place away from the Premises. For example, We may be able only to carry out some of the activities such as Specialist Work on a third party Premises. This will be discussed and agreed with You prior to Us sending the Vehicle to any third Parties.

7 Parts

7.1 At the time We perform the Services We may not have all the Parts We need to perform the Services. This may be for a number of reasons such as:
7.1.1 where We have not provided an estimate and could not reasonably establish what Parts would be necessary until We start performing the Services; or
7.1.2 where We have provided an estimate, it may not have been reasonably possible to establish the need for particular Parts at the time We provided the estimate, but those Parts may not be immediately available or need to be imported;
7.1.3 the need for the particular Parts may only be revealed when We start performing the Services; or
7.1.4 whether or not We have provided an estimate, the condition of an item or the area which is the subject of the Services may only become apparent when We start performing the Services and it was not reasonably possible to establish it until that point.

7.2 In such cases, We may need to order and/or buy Parts. If Parts are available from a local supplier then We normally wish to travel to the supplier and buy the Parts and return to continue performing the Services. We normally charge for the travel time at £10.00/hour. Unfortunately, sometimes We have no other alternative but to wait for the supplier to deliver the Parts to Our premises and in this instance You indemnify Us for any claims arising from such delay;

7.3 if the Parts are not available from a local supplier We normally order the Parts and will You advise You to return on another occasion to enable Us to continue to perform the Services. If We feel the work carried out will render the Vehicle incapable of being driven, prior to commencing work. At times We cannot reasonably foresee this happening, or once We commence work a problem may be discovered causing a delay;

7.4 all Parts used will be new and will either be OEM standard, or those produced by a third party of OEM standard. If We have to deviate from this, We will inform You first and advise You why We have to deviate from it;

7.5 any Parts removed and replaced, will be available for Your inspection at Our Premises until such time as the Vehicle is either collected or delivered to You, but not after that, unless prior request by You was made. Should You wish to remove the Parts from Our Premises, We may charge you at that time for such removal;

7.6 all Parts and goods will remain Our absolute unencumbered property until such time as it has been fully paid for by You;

7.7 sometimes there may be delays caused due to it being necessary to order Parts, which can only be confirmed once a Part has actually been removed;

7.8 For any Additional Services ,We reserve the right to refuse and Parts supplied by You;

7.9 If We do decide to accept any Part that You supply (which will be Our exclusive decision), certain very specific EXCLUSIONS to Our Service warranties will apply such as that:
7.9.1 Should the Part be incorrect, We reserve the right to charge for storage and for down time;
7.9.2 no labour warranty will be given if the Part supplied becomes faulty due to any reason to the widest extent that the law permits;

7.10 Any Parts that need to be ordered especially for You, will be chargeable before ordering and booking the Vehicle, or if the work has been rescheduled, the part will have to be paid in advance of re-booking and ordering.

8 Timing

8.1 Our responsibility to perform the Services by particular dates
We aim to carry out the Services on the same date that Your Vehicle is booked in for the Service/MOT, however We cannot guarantee or provide a firm commitment that:
8.1.1 We will complete the performance of all the Services included in the Package by any specified date or time; or
8.1.2 the performance of any individual part of the Services will be completed by a specified date or time; or
8.1.3 that We have all the Parts necessary to fix Your particular make and model Vehicle.

8.2 What can happen if We cannot start performing the Services or complete performing the Services
8.2.1 If We do not start or complete performing the Package Services within a reasonable period from the date(s) We have agreed with You or on the date that the Vehicle is booked in, with Us, You may either choose to continue to wait until We can start performing the Services or complete performing them or You can remove Your Vehicle (or have it delivered) if it is at Our Premises, or choose another day/time.
8.2.2 Where We have started performing the Package Services and find that Additional Services or Parts that are NOT covered by the Package will be necessary, We will contact You on the number/e-mail You provide to Us on the day Your Vehicle is collected/dropped off at Our Premises. Two attempts to contact You will be made, but if You don’t reply to Us in time, We may not be able to do those Additional Services on that day;
8.2.3 If We do reach You, We will give You a quote to provide the Additional Services and You will either agree to or reject the quote for Us to do it. You will be required to sign the quote before we start with such Additional Services/order Parts;
8.2.4 What is a reasonable period of time depends on the types of Parts and their availability as well as the availability and capacity in Our workshop;

8.3 Situations/Events outside Our reasonable control
8.3.1 In addition, there are certain situations or events that occur that are not within Our reasonable control and which we could not be expected to foresee. Where one of these happen, We will normally attempt to continue performing the Package or Additional Services as soon as the situation which has stopped Us performing the Services has been resolved. In such circumstances there may be a delay (sometimes a substantial delay) before We can start or continue performing the Services.
8.3.2 The following are examples of events or situations which are not within in Our reasonable control:
(a) where weather conditions make it impossible or unsafe for Us to perform any of the Services or any other impediment situations such as, but not only:
(i) pandemics, epidemics, government lock-downs, Acts of God such as natural disasters such as violent storms, cyclones, earthquakes, heavy snowfall affecting travel, floods, lightning destruction, war, (whether declared or not), civil war, civil violence, riots and revolutions, acts of sabotage, explosions, fires, destruction of machines, factories and any kind of installations, boycotts, strikes and lock-outs of all kinds, go-slows, occupation of factories and Premises and work stoppages; Acts of authority;
(b) illness of staff, technical problems or equipment failure in Our workshop;
(c) if the Parts are not delivered on the date or at the time agreed with the supplier of the Parts (and it is not possible to obtain a replacement from an alternative supplier at all or within a reasonable amount of time, or the price charged by the alternative supplier is excessively higher than by the original supplier if ordered at short notice);
(d) where You make a change in the Services You wish Us to perform (and this results in, for example, Us having to do Additional Services or wait for new or different Parts);
(e) where We have to wait for other providers of Services (who have been engaged by You) to complete their work before We are able to perform the Services (or the relevant part of the Services dependent on the other provider if ordered at short notice);
8.3.3 If We expect Our delay in re-starting the Services will be too long, then We will offer You the option of either:
(a) continuing to wait until We are able to re-start performing the Services. If You are required to make any payments during this period (for example if We and You have agreed that You will pay Us in staged amounts), then We will not require You to make any of the payments required until We are able to restart performing the Services; or
(b) cancelling the contract if We cannot offer You the Services within 14 (fourteen) days. If You choose this option then You will only have to pay for any Additional Services We have performed up to the date of cancellation and for any Parts for which We have a legal obligation to pay. If You have made payment(s) to Us in excess of the amount of the Additional Services We have performed or Parts We have purchased, We will return the difference to You within 14 (fourteen) days of cancellation.
