We do charge an inspection fee (usually $100) for repairs. This is payable when the equipment is delivered to AVD.
This inspection fee will be deducted from the final amount if you accept the estimate & proceed with the repair.
The repair inspection process involves disassembly, obtaining service information, performing tests, looking up parts, etc. This all takes time but allows us to give you a more accurate estimate on the total repair cost.
If you just want to know if an item is likely to be worth fixing, please call us with the details and we may be able to give a rough indication based of your description of the fault. Please note that it is not possible to give an accurate estimate this way.
Our current rates (including GST) are:
- Workshop labour – $100 per hour (1/2 hour minimum)
- On-site labour – $100 per hour (1/2 hour minimum)
- Travel time – $100 per hour (1/2 hour minimum)
