Vico IT Solutions repairs overview
Warranty and Returns for Devices
At Vico IT Solutions, we provide warranty and return policies for a variety of devices, including Smartphones, Tablets, Macbooks, iMacs, Laptops, and others. The warranty terms may vary depending on the type of repair or service provided:
- For repairs involving screens, batteries, and component repairs, Vico IT Solutions typically offers a 90-day service warranty.
- If no specific warranty period is stated or advised, a 30-day warranty period will apply.
- For repair work within the warranty period, we will determine whether the fault is related to the parts used or the work performed by us or our service partners, or if it’s due to normal wear and tear.
- To make a warranty claim, you must provide a receipt as proof of service.
- Please note that no warranty is offered for software-related service work provided by Vico IT Solutions or our service partners.
- You acknowledge that any repair may void the original manufacturer’s warranty, and Vico IT Solutions or its service agents will not be liable in such cases.
Assessment Fees and Pickups:
- There are assessment fees for device evaluations: $60 for phones and other electrical devices, $80 for computers, $100 for liquid-damaged smartphones, $150 for liquid-damaged computers, and $140 for insurance assessments and reports.
- These assessment charges are separate from repair costs.
- If you do not collect or arrange delivery of your assessed or repaired device within 60 days of notification, we may sell the device to recover our costs.
- While data loss is unlikely, it’s your responsibility to ensure your backups are up to date.
- Vico IT Solutions and our service partners may attempt data backups when possible, but we are not responsible for customer data and backups.
- For certain iPhone and computer repairs, we may need your iCloud/Google account credentials to complete the repair effectively.
