Additional costs involved in repairs or maintenance of the sign will be billed accordingly.
Defects and Claims
Any perceived defects discovered by the client during the warranty period must be fully documented, and a report is to be sent to Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. expressing the nature of the defects. This report should be in writing, and must contain the following information (supplied for each individual defect):
- Sign type
- Location (if applicable)
- Photographs of sign in its entirety (for identification purposes) and relevant close-ups of defects
- All relevant defect details
This report must be sent whilst still within the warranty period. If the report is sent outside of the warranted period, the report will be treated as if the defect itself has occurred outside of warranty.
A Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. representative will be assigned to the defect case to investigate and will acknowledge receipt of the report within two business days. This representative will then investigate to determine the precise nature of the fault or defect, the possible cause for the issue, potential course of action, and whether the defect is covered by the Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. warranty. This response will be provided to the client in writing, the timeframe within which will be determined at acknowledgment of receipt, taking into account all relevant factors such as urgency of repairs, current scheduling, defect type and quantity, site access requirements and project deadlines where applicable.
Should a person or persons not authorised by Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. conduct works on the sign, attempt to forcibly investigate (causing damage to the sign, whether obvious visually or not), rectify the issue without Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. instruction and written permission, or otherwise tamper with the unit, any claim made will be null and void.
Where a defect has been investigated and is found to be the fault of Mida Sign Services UK Ltd., any rectification works deemed to be necessary in order to bring the sign to their warranted condition will be conducted by Mida Sign Services UK Ltd. at no further charge to the client.
Where a defect report has been investigated and the issues have been found to not be the fault of Mida Sign Services UK Ltd., any call-out fees, labour and hire costs associated with the investigation will be charged in full to the client. Should the client wish to proceed with any rectification works, all costs associated with these works must be paid for in full.
