UNFORSEEN DAMAGES FOR COMPUTER & PHONE REPAIRS

"South City Tech Outlet" will not be held responsible for any device that may have unforeseen damages prior to our repair. A device may be working ok prior to our repair but unforeseen damages may have occurred during repair. 


One example of an unforeseen damage: Customers phone has a cracked screen due to a hard fall. The fall may have loosened a chip or filter on the main board which can break off completely during our repair causing the device to act inappropriately or not work completely. All devices brought to us are already broken. We are a repair shop only. 


Another example of a device is that is brought to us for repair that has been previously repaired through either a third-party repair shop or authorized repair: The previously repaired device might have had a damage internally hidden from eyesight and could have only been noticed after phone or device has been taken apart, which in turn ended up damaging the component further that was probably held together by two components pushing together which causes a sudden unforeseen damage to the device rendering it inoperable. For example, we have seen repairs from other shops with tape holding components together and bad soldering jobs that were only temporary repairs. "South City Tech Outlet" will not be liable for these situations, by purchasing a repair with "South City Tech Outlet" you automatically agree to all the terms and conditions of our services.
