Before you place an order for either products or services that I provide, if you have any questions relating to the following terms and conditions please do not hesitate to contact me.
The following terms apply to all services.
All 'domestic' jobs must be paid for in FULL on completion of the job. Payment can be made via cash in person or cheque made payable to “Out of Thin Air” or Electronic Cash transfer direct to 'Out of Thin Air's ' business bank account.
Please Note: Installed items are legally still owned by 'Out of Thin Air Aerial and Satellite Services' until they have been paid for in full, so they can be legally removed from your propery at any time if the completed work hasn't been paid for .
Any 'Commercial' company or organisation that requires "Out of Thin air Aerial and satellite Services" to carry out work for them must initially issue a pro-former detailing all their company details to enable credit checks to be performed .
50% of the cost of the first job must be paid for in advance cash/cheque or bank transfer.
Any 'Commercial' job must be paid within 1 month from issue of the invoice (Please note: being a sole trader maintaining cashflow is paramount, so unfortunately we cannot offer 2 or 3 month payment options).
If money owed is not paid in FULL after the 1 month period, a reminder invoice will be sent out and an attempt made to contact the finance director of the organisation concerned.
After a minimum of 6 weeks from the original invoice date, the job will be liable to a late payment charge of 2.5% per month, added onto the outstanding balance. If this fails, with the aid of the F.S.B, court action will be undertaken.
Please Note: Installed items are legally still owned by 'Out of Thin Air Aerial and Satellite Services' until they have been paid for in full, so they can be legally removed from your premises at any time.
Your right to cancel
At least 24 hours notice is required if you need to cancel or change your agreed job. Otherwise the late cancellation costs as laid out below will be charged.
As Out Of Thin Air Aerial and Satellite Services are unable to judge the reasons for the change or cancellation or indeed not being able to gain access to the property concerned. Cancellation or any changes of your agreed job bookings within 24 hours of your agreed work date will incur a charge of 50% of the full job value,
Customers are reminded that no exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with the business (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract.
How to cancel or postpone your job:
Cancellations or postponements should be made by calling us on 07779339726, please leave a message if the phone is not answered. You may also cancel or postpone by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) . Once your email has been read, you will receive an email reply confirming your request.
All estimates are drawn up based on customer information at time of site survey. I reserve the right to amend my estimates if unforeseen problems occur during the installation or additional services are required. (e.g.) the requirements for a bigger aerial, amplifier or different type of support mast; the need to drill through a plastered over large stone wall (in access of 12" / 300mm) or having to spent my time to move personnal items not shifted out of the area where i am working.
I always strive to offer the highest level of services and guarantee my work for a period of 12 months. If at any time during this period you are dissatisfied with any aspect of your service, please contact me on 07779339726. I will try my utmost to resolve any problems. Normal manufacturers guarantee applies on all parts.
I do not generally offer refunds for any completed services. However if you are in any way dissatisfied with any aspect of my work, please contact me on 07779339726. I will try my utmost to resolve any problems and will happily return to check the integrity of the work completed.
If a component part has failed, as long as it is 12months or less since the installation, it will be replaced free of charge.
If it was proved that what i tried to provide for you has been unsucessful in the long term, e.g. trying to receive the full choice of TV signals from a distant fringe main transmitter instead of the limited choice of channels from a relay transmitter and signals are pixelating often spoiling your viewing experience - in a case like this, i will either readjust to aerial to a local transmitter (you will only receive the basic standard channels); or remove the aparatus and refund the cost of the components only; or offer an alternative solution i.e a 'freesat' installation. However on balance, extra costs may be incurred by you the customer e.g. for a 'freesat' receiver.
If after inspection of the perceived fault, it is established that the fault is not pertaining to the original installation, then a further charge may be levied on you the customer.
I will treat all your Personal Information as confidential. I will keep it on a secure server and I will fully comply with all applicable UK Data Protection and consumer legislation.
