Terms and Conditions

Before you go ahead and choose to do business with Drgadgets.co.uk, we recommend that you read the following terms and conditions carefully. Once you place an order with us, you will be bound by the following terms and any violation(s) will force us to take necessary action.

Contract Basis between the Company and the Client

We provide our exceptional services for the residents of the United Kingdom who are registered on our website. The ability of the registered users to comply with the terms and conditions mentioned herein determines the acceptance or rejection of the order by our side. If the order is accepted, a contract is formed between you and Drgadgets.co.uk.

The contract begins when you place an order with us (more information available under the How It Works tab). You must only send over the phone which you own the absolute rights for along with the title and the interest. Once we receive your phone and the payment, the contract will be established and the analysis of your phone will begin.

The user cannot assign or transfer the obligations and rights that may arise in the contract to any other user or person without prior intimation to us. The contract cannot be transferred but can be sub-contracted to another user.

Cancellation: Any contract can be cancelled before you send over your phone for repair. No cancellations will be made once the phone is in transit.

Delivery: Each order placed on Drgadgets.co.uk comes with a Free Post Returns Service and Return Delivery by Royal Mail Tracked 24. While placing the order, you can opt for either posting your device via a courier service of your choice or using our Next Day Free Returns Address service. This service covers a loss of items up to £500. For any items that cover the loss of more than this amount, you will have to choose your own courier service. The device is posted the same day it’s completely repaired using the Royal Mail Tracked 24.

While the Post Office works with the aim of developing the item with Royal Mail Tracked 24 (click for more information), it may take up to 10 working days under some circumstances (click for more information).

  • the original receipt of the purchased item

to make a claim for reimbursement.

>Can I change the courier company, address, or anything else used by Drgadgets?

No. When you make a purchase with Drgadgets, it is the company that chooses the courier service that they are going to employ and it cannot be changed under any circumstances. Also, make sure you enter the correct address and contact information at the time of placing the order since we will be unable to change it once the order is dispatched. If you need to change the address, be sure to contact us while your order is still being processed. You can contact us via email with the details of your new address. All the couriers require signatures by the receptor at the time of receipt.

Warranty: All repairs, except for the ones related to software, battery, and water damage, come with a 3 month warranty. The battery related repairs are warranted for 3 months. This excludes any faults that may be related to physical or accidental damage or caused if the device is opened whilst in your possession. If the nature of the repair falls outside the terms of your warranty or guarantee, then you may have to incur a charge for the repair.

Our warranty is not covered for repairs on WiFi Faults on the iPhone 4 and 4s.

If you take your device to a third party after it has been repaired by Drgadgets this will void the warranty on your device. This includes both repaired and purchased devices.

No software related repair will be covered by our warranty. The warranty provided by Drgadgets only covers the original repair. For instance, if you pay for a screen repair and the screen becomes faulty, you will be able to avail the warranty of 1 year. If any additional faults occur that are not related to the original repair this will not be covered under warranty and will need to be paid for.

The warranty for refurbished phones and tablets sold by Drgadgets differs depending on the device and only covers the manufacturing defects. If the fault is not related to this or happens outside of the warranty period, an extra cost may occur. It does not cover any physical or accidental damage.

With all refurbished devices sold by Drgadgets, the battery will only be covered by a 3 month warranty.

If they pay to have repaired it still will not be covered by warranty due to any future faults that may occur.

Repair Process and Delays: We work with the aim of repairing your device within 24 to 48 hours of receiving it. However, no promises are made since every repair varies in time and complexity. Drgadgets holds a record of showing 96.3% of repairs on the same day but we may encounter further issues that may slow down the process. If for any reason your repair takes longer than it should, you will be notified with the reason and the estimated completion date. Alternatively, you can check under the My Account tab to check for any new developments in relation to your repair.

Please be aware that Diagnostics may take longer than usual repairs as our trained technicians take time to look at every element of the device and check for faulty parts. 

Please note that we do not guarantee your device will be repaired after we diagnose the fault. 97% of devices that we diagnose are repaired.

With screen repairs on Samsung Devices there is always a chance of the LCD breaking due to the glue needed to bond the glass to the LCD. We are one of the few repairers that offer just a glass repair, which in turn passes the savings on to the customer. However, occasionally the LCD may break. We always make our best efforts to notify the customer about the procedure  and ask for permission to carry on as we will not be liable for the cost of the replacement LCD.

Liquid Damage repairs can take up to 5 - 9working days.

Any Motherboard related repairs can take up to 5 - 9 working days.

If we receive your device and no default is detected, we will send it back and refund you the difference. However, there will be a £9.99 handling fee deducted—this covers postage & diagnostic costs. 

On a few iPad screen repairs occasionally fine grid lines may appear, the screen will work without any problems just light grid lines may seem apparent which will not affect the performance of the screen at all. We will be unable to refund or replace the screen based on this factor.

Additional Repairs: When you send your mobile device in to us for a repair, it is rigorously tested by a number of different testers and departments and sometimes additional faults are found. If we find an additional fault with your mobile device we will send you an additional repair payment request via email. It is your decision to choose to proceed or not. If you choose to go ahead with the repair, once we receive the payment, your mobile device will be passed back to our technicians to continue the repair work. If you decline, we will stop the work and send the mobile device back as it is. If you have any queries about the additional repairs, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Waterproof Repairs: Mobile devices that are sold as being waterproof are originally sealed in the manufacturer’s factory with special machines and special liquid-proof gaskets. 

When we carry out a repair on a waterproof device, it involves opening and closing the device and hence we cannot guarantee that your device will be 100% waterproof after the repair process has been completed. We replace all gaskets required but only the manufacturers of the device have access to the specialised equipment required. However, we always use grade A parts and use the best possible techniques.

Testing: Our trained testers and technicians always test the device on arrival and before it is dispatched. We test many different aspects of the device including the buttons, vibration, sound, cameras, charging port, WiFi, speakers, signal, front screen, LCD display, power setting etc. in order to ensure we don't miss any faults and provide the best possible service.

If you check out a phone and a repair with Drgadgets within the repair time frame, then excise the 14-day money back guarantee on the purchased phone after your phone has been repaired. You will be charged £9.99 for the rental charge of the phone as this would be classed as a phone rental.
