Company Policies
  • Work is performed on a best-efforts basis. Charges are based on the time spent, not on the results.
  • We are not product dealers. We willingly recommend specific products and reputable dealers.
  • We will acquire products for established clients on request. We do not mark them up. We require immediate reimbursement for our out-of-pocket expenses, prepayment, or payment by you direct to the dealer. Our standard hourly rate applies to this service. We will provide you a copy of the dealer’s invoice. Warranty, product repair, and product replacement are the responsibility of the manufacturer and dealer.
  • We don’t leave our work partially done just to keep a strict time schedule. We finish necessary work at our current appointment before proceeding to the next. For that reason, appointment times are approximate.
  • We take pride in our expertise and service. If there is a problem with our service, we expect to make it right.
  • Product names mentioned in this web site are registered trademarks of the respective manufacturers, developers, and dealters of those products.
