Should the customer request on-site service this will be charged at £35 per hour including travelling Monday to Friday 8am~6pm. Work outside these hours will be done only by prior agreement and at a cost of £45 per hour.

*Return to Base Warranty Delivery Information

All items sold by Spillard Safety Systems that require replacement parts sending to the customer are despatched with the intention that the item will be with the customer before 12pm on the next working day. Couriers used are typically TNT and Royal Mail.

However, due to the nature of the courier / postal service, Spillard Safety Systems cannot be held responsible for items that may be delayed in transit.

Should a customer require any further delivery options – i.e., guaranteed next day, ‘before 9 am’ or ‘Saturday delivery’ these are available at an extra charge.

Enhanced Warranty

In the event of a fault with a product covered by the ‘enhanced warranty’, procedures as for the RTB warranty should be followed.

However, in the event of an exchange unit not rectifying the fault and/or the customer insisting on on-site service the following procedure will be used.

a. If on-site service is required within 96 hours of the fault being reported, Spillard Safety Systems reserves the right to charge labour at £35.00 per hour including travelling.
b. If on-site service is carried out after 96 hours of the fault being reported, no charge will be made.

On-Site Warranty

In the event of a fault with a product covered by On-Site warranty Spillard Safety Systems will aim to attend site within 72 hours of a reported fault.

Exceptions to the Enhanced and On-Site Warranty

Please note that only complete systems – e.g. camera, monitor, distribution box, cable – originally fitted by SSS or a fitter approved by SSS have the ‘enhanced’ or ‘on-site’ warranty option.

Where a system has been fitted by anyone other than those mentioned above and on-site service is requested SSS reserves the right to charge labour costs at the applicable rate.

Should an individual item – for example, a camera – be fitted to a machine where the existing system is out of warranty the replacement item carries a twelve month return to base warranty, not ‘enhanced’ or ‘on-site’ warranty.

‘Enhanced’ and ‘on-site’ warranty covers mainland UK only.

Information for Customers Requiring On-Site Service

Spillard Safety Systems must be made aware of any induction courses / special site requirements before the arrival of the engineer.

Attendance on site to work is subject to our fitters having safe access to the machine. The supply of necessary equipment required to allow safe access to the machine (scaffolding, ‘cherry-pickers’, ladders, harnesses, etc) is the responsibility of the site being visited not of Spillard Safety Systems. Where the necessary equipment is not made available Spillard Safety Systems will not attend the machine and a charge may be made to cover travel costs & time on site.

If access to a machine is not granted within 15 minutes of arrival, Spillard Safety Systems reserve the right to reschedule the call. If a call is re-scheduled a charge will be made for time lost.

It is expected that machines will be made available to engineers from Monday to Friday 8am ~ 6pm. For weekend work a £45 per hour charge including travelling is mandatory.
