Scripps Electrical Terms of Trade

Manufacturer’s Warranty

Scripps Electrical Ltd is NOT responsible for setting the manufacturer’s terms and conditions. Manufacturer’s warranty terms & conditions vary between brands. The customer is responsible for educating themselves on the terms and conditions applicable to their brand of appliance. Customers are also responsible for knowing how their appliance works to ensure they are operating it correctly. If the reported fault with the customer’s appliance is deemed NOT to be a manufacturing fault by the manufacturer the customer is liable for all assessment and repair costs including house call charges.

Some of the things the “Manufacturer’s Warranty” does NOT cover:

  • Customer education
  • Installation errors
  • Blockages
  • Foreign objects in appliance causing damage
  • User damage

Workshop Assessment Fee

This fee is payable by the customer before Scripps Electrical Ltd carry out an assessment on the customer’s appliance and is not refundable. The assessment fee covers dismantling and assessment to give the customer an estimate for repair. This fee is not refundable if the customer’s appliance is found uneconomical to repair. If the customer requires their appliance to be reassembled, then further labour time to do so will be charged to the customer and payable before reassembling takes place. If the customer agrees to proceed with the repair, the assessment fee will be deducted from the final invoice and the balance is required to be paid before or upon collection of the appliance.

House Call Service Charges

Any in-home service requested by the customer will incur a House Call Service Charge. This is chargeable on the day of service (whether the appliance is repaired or not). Scripps Electrical Ltd can request this payment in advance for this service or on the day of service.


Payment is required by the customer in full for all services provided by Scripps Electrical Ltd. Payments can be made online, by bank deposit, over the phone with credit/debit card or in the office via cash or EFTPOS. Where an invoice is issued any unpaid accounts will incur late payment fees and all collection costs. Overdue accounts will be passed onto a third party for collection once the customer’s invoice is 60 days or more past the due by the date stated on the invoice.


The ownership of any goods and materials supplied by Scripps Electrical Ltd will only be transferred to the customer when they have met all that is owing to Scripps Electrical Ltd.
