  • We will decide at our discretion:

Collection/Delivery of the Goods

Unless agreed differently, the serviced goods will be collected and returned via courier. We will decide the method of packing and delivery. The goods will be delivered at your risk and, unless they were repaired under warranty, and at our discretion at your expense.

The goods are fully insured providing they are securely locked in the Peli transit case. Full details and full instructions of how this system operates can be viewed on our website at http://www.cameracal.co.uk/fedex- pick-up-delivery/

If the goods are damaged or incomplete when they are returned to you, you must write to let us and the carrier know within 3 business days of delivery.

You must write to let us and the carrier know if the goods have not been delivered within 7 days of the date of the despatch note or invoice.

Cameracal is not responsible in the event of failure to deliver or collect goods at the agreed time, this is solely the responsibility of the courier.

The courier is bound by contract to deliver at the time specificied (normal service is before 12-00 unless otherwise agreed). This is ONLY applicable to delivery.

For collection purposes the client can contact the courier using the info provided by Cameracal to determine approximate timings.

This includes.

  • Client not being present to accept delivery / hand over item (s) for collection.

    In the event of the courier not being able to deliver at the agreed time a credit will be supplied if the fault lies solely with the courier and or Cameracal, this is entirely at the discretion of the courier company / Cameracal.

    Upon notification of the goods not having been delivered / received Cameracal will then start the claims process with our insurers (Avia PLC) accordingly. Cameracal will not be liable to replace the equipment until monies are received from the insurers. It is the clients responsibility to insure they have access to other photographic equipment for the purpose of leisure / work purposes.

    Any claims submitted are normally paid with 14 -21 days but can be deemed null or void for the following reasons:

  • Customer does not lock the supplied padlocks
  • Unlock codes are divulged to courier
  • Items are not sufficiently packed in the case and thus equipment sustains damage.In the case in which the clients chooses to package their own equipment (using our Fedex £9.50 collection service) Cameracal cannot be responsible and a claim will not be accepted if said equipment is packaged inadequately as in insufficient / inadequate packing or holding box or insufficiently secured.
