DAMAGED / FAULTY GOODS:
In the case of an item being Faulty or Damaged we require an inspection by a manufacturers qualified engineer to be carried out on the item where it is installed so we can ascertain the fault before we can arrange for a suitable replacement where possible. Any appliance awaiting exchange must be fully disconnected from its supply be it electrical , gas or plumbed to water connection. C T Bell (Crowthorne) Ltd will not be liable for any labour installation charges involved with the removal and subsequent re-installation of any appliance.

Has been used solely for domestic purposes and is on domestic premises; ie. not for commercial or trade use.
Has been used solely in accordance with the instruction book.
Has not been subject to misuse, accident, modified or repaired by anyone other than the manufacturer's service engineers.
Extended warranty promotions and offers are to be claimed by the consumer. If you fail to register such claims with the manufacturer then you may loose the extra free cover.
FITTING OF APPLIANCES:
Our local fitting service on washing machines and dishwashers (freestanding) shall be carried out only to existing plumbing which is safe and free from leaks. Connection pipes and electrical sockets must be no further from the appliance than 1.5m as we do not undertake any extra plumbing/electrical services and extension of plumbing utilities. Any leaks from frail or brittle pipe work shall be pointed out to the consumer before the fitting takes place and we do not hold ourselves responsible for floods or leaks before or after we leave the premises if you agree for us to proceed. In the event of your pipe work not being appropriate and safe to disconnect we will not continue the fitting service. We do not refund the fitting charge as time is allocated to every job. You do not have the right to refuse the appliance due to a failed installation. Faults on pipework and electrical faults on sockets are the customers responsibility to make safe before our team arrive at the premises. Re-delivery charges apply if we are asked to return to complete a fitting service which previously couldnt be completed due to inadequate pipework, electrics etc.
We take all complaints very seriously. If you have a cause for complaint then please write to us at the address shown on our contact page
