Customers can arrange to drop off their coffee machines into our Service Centre where we can either repair of service your machines to be collected later on sometimes even the same day. It is the customers responsibility to send the machine in and arrange collection. Though we may at time to time help arrange or recommend a courier on behalf of a customer Xpress Coffee Ltd accept no responsibility for damage or missing machines. Any customer sending their machine into us must be sent it in the original or suitable packaging to avoid damage in transit. If we do arrange a courier and we feel that the customer packaging is not suitable then we reserve the right to repackage the machine up correctly and then charge the customer for our packaging before we ship the machine. Please contact us first for information before dropping any machine off. If machines are not collected within six months then we reserve the right to dispose of the machine.

Free Service
If as part of a package you have received a Free service or extended warranty then this is based on the manufacturers guide lines and it would be up to the customer to arrange for the machine to be either dropped off or sent into our Xpress Service Centre in the original box as we can take no responsibility for any damage caused in transit. On Domestic machines this will usually include a basic service free of charge including basic parts used. If further work/parts are needed the customer will be contacted before the work is carried out. As a guide services are generally due (depending on usage) around the time the basic manufacturers warranties expire. This is based on customers purchasing our Xpress Coffee blends & all your Cleaning Products & General Accessories from www.xpresscoffeeuk.co.uk including any Water Filters (where fitted). Our Xpress Coffee must be purchased on a consistent monthly or at least a bi-monthly basis in accordance with the machines capacity.

Warranty - New Machines
Unless specified all new Commercial machines come with a 12 months parts and labour warranty.As with all warranties there are certain requirements that must be adhered to by the customer as per instructions/manual as cleaning related issues are not covered by warranty. All of our Warranties include all mechanical and electrical breakdowns unless the breakdown is deemed to be caused by mis-use, cleaning, or scale. Customers are required to have a water filter fitted and kept up to date. All Domestic machines come with a 2year back to base warranty held by the manufacturer unless specified. Domestic customers should ring us in the first instance and we will contact the manufacturer on your behalf.

Generally Commercial machines are an on site warranty though there are times where we have no choice but to have the machine brought back to base. Please feel free to contact us and clarify. Our service department will need to take a payment in advance to book the call out which will then be refunded if it is deemed to be a rranty related
issue. Customers need to be able demonstrate they have purchased the recommended maintenance and cleaning products from us as per the manufacturers guide lines. This includes the descaling of machines and ensuring any fitted water filters are kept up to date. Though our Service department will do its up most to contact the customer in time for servicing it is ultimately the customers responsibility to ensure that we have been called to service the machines or change water filters as required.

Warranty - Pre-Used/Demo Machines
Any of our ex demo, reconditioned, or second hand machines come with a standard 3month back to base warranty.Though we may arrange collection of your machine and where possible provide a loan machine if the breakdown is deemed not a warranty issue the customer is liable to be charged for any courier costs and a daily rate of £10 per day on any loan machine.

If a customer chooses one our Pre-Used Coffee Machine Packages at the time of ordering and can demonstrate that they have purchased their monthly Coffee and accessories from us this can be upgraded to a 6month back to base warranty. Please ask about this at the time of ordering.

Pre-Used Machines With Steam Boilers
It is the customers responsibility to check with their own liability insurance company that the coffee machine they have purchased comply with the PSSR government regulations and/or any PAT testing required within their premises. Boiler inspections must be carried out every 12-14 months by a competent engineer and then signed off by a certified inspector. Though we recondition our machines often with new boilers or safety valves it is still up to the customer to verify with their insurance company and then keep their inspections/certification valid and current.

Xpress Coffee Green Policy
XpressCoffee are committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. Our policy, though within cost restrictions is to recondition and repair as many parts for re-use as possible to reduce just changing parts sometimes without actually diagnosing the true fault or problem. This helps with our work with the W.E.E.EDirective in the amount we have to dispose of. The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

1) Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.

2) Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of its fleet and the source of its power requirement.

3) Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
Source and promote a product range to minimize the environmental impact of both production and distribution.

4) Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.
Use an accredited program to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities.

5) Promote the re-use and recycle ground coffee as a possible compost.

6) We also have a policy of re-using as many cardboard boxes as possible to reduce waste.

W.E.E.E Directive
At Xpress Coffee we support recycling and the the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) which aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment, by increasing re-use and recycling and reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill. W.E.E.E, seeks to achieve this by making producers responsible for the collection, treatment, and recovery of waste electrical equipment, and by obliging distributors to allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. under the WEE directive we can arrange to dispose of your old Coffee Machine which we will also keep a record of.

XpressCoffee is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

Data Protection
By agreeing to these terms you agree to allow us the right to hold/pass on any suspected fraudulent orders on to the relevant authorities and to other retailers to help combat fraud. We guarantee not to pass any customer information onto any third party for a sales/commercial purpose other than Xpress Coffee Ltd.
