Repairs

Update January 2022

Our repairs service is back up and running. However we do have a large number of outstanding repairs as a result of the pandemic, staff shortages and material delays.

Please be patient with our teams, they are doing everything they can.

You can help us by making sure you wait at home for your appointment.

If you need to rearrange an appointment you have with us please contact us as soon as possible. We completely understand that there are genuine reasons why customers cannot keep appointments, all we ask is that you let us know ahead of time so that we can give the appointment to another customer who needs it.
