Business and engineering matters can be sometimes hard to grasp. But trying to grasp business, engineering, legislation, warranty and refrigeration is impossible without previous experience in these matters. We strive for better service and management. As a part of our strive, we have created Frequently Asked Questions/Answers section and we will keep updating this page periodically.
How soon will someone arrive if I’d make a booking online?
We guarantee to dispatch the engineer within two days of the booking excluding the weekends and bank holidays. The engineer will arrive within the hours set on the second page of the booking form SOMEONE WILL BE ON SITE FROM/TO: with the outlook of having enough time to complete the job on the spot. The system is set up to send you a one-off automatic email reminder at the time the engineer starts your job on the system. In reality, our attendance breaks down near the rates given below:
- Today: The day the booking was made and paid – 5% of the jobs will be attended as an engineer is nearby.
- Tomorrow: 10% of the jobs booked on your booking day get attended as the site is close to or on the engineers’ route to a job that was booked the day before your booking day.
- The due day, day after tomorrow: 85% of the jobs booked on your booking day are attended
- Three days from now: 0.1% of the jobs we were late to on Day 2 are attended.
We also provide two types of Duty Engineer service:
- Guaranteed Duty Engineers Service for Service and Maintenance Contract holders
- Depending on the DE Availability Service for pay as you go customers. DE service contact here.
No one arrived today to fix my fridge. Do I need to rebook the service?
No, you don’t need to rebook the service. The engineer will follow the information provided on the booking form and attend ASAP. Delays in service may be caused by higher than usual workload, heavy traffic or road closures and other variables arising from the nature of field-works.
The engineer said s/he cannot fix my fridge today. Is this the end of the service?
No this is not the end of the service. We will now swiftly find the parts you need, or it may take a bit longer if we think you been robbed on the first price and we will report back on the email address provided on the booking form, with the price quote to proceed with the service. This normally takes 1-3 days depending on the requirements.
- the broken part of the application is not a stock item and the engineer first needs to find the part, price it, order it and finally fit the part.
- the job cannot be completed on the spot because some issues may take many hours to fix and will require sundries, spare parts, refrigeration gas and ultimately a price quote.
How much does it cost to service air conditioner unit?
Our fee to start the air conditioning system service is 75 GBP. The total cost of the service will depend on the nature of the fault, spares and labour required to mend the problem.

First booking includes the following:
- adding your job details to our service log
- routing and managing the job

- specialist tooling
- stepladders 1.8m
- sourcing and ordering spare parts if the second-fix visit is required
- invoice and service report on the completion of a job
- piece of mind the pros are on your case
The user benefit of the first booking is to find out what’s wrong with the appliance, can it be fixed on the spot, what parts are required to fix it, how long it will take to fix it, is it financially feasible and what is the final cost of the service.
How soon can you fit new parts on my appliance?
Please check for the ETA in the right top corner of the cost estimate. We source spare parts directly from the manufacturer if possible. We also work with national and international manufacturers, suppliers and traders of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment:

Why is your services so much cheaper compared to other companies in the same trade?
We have designed our own unique management and operation system that allows us to provide services more effectively compared to the traditional management system used by probably most of the old fashion management style companies.
Do you repair home fridges?
The short answer is yes we do repair domestic refrigeration equipment. However, we advise you to consider the cost of the service to the cost of the appliance as it is not always economically feasible to service domestic fridges.
Do you provide service on Saturdays?
We have a duty engineer on standby to provide breakdown service on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
Do you have spares readily available for the service?
Yes, we do carry spare parts to cover various types of breakdowns on the first fix basis.
Do you have a compressor on the van?
No, we don’t have a compressor on the van because the compressors used in the commercial refrigeration systems are too susceptible to swings and bumps of the van for days or weeks and there are many hundreds of various types, makes and sizes of compressors to carry in the van. A compressor is a 3-5 day delivery item.
Do you have gas in the van?
Yes, we do carry refrigerants.
Do you provide services for public sector?
Yes, we do provide our services to the public sector. Please get in touch with us to confirm the following:

We will dispatch an engineer on our standard terms for initial assessment and on the spot fix where possible. After the engineers visit we will submit a Pro-forma cost estimate or an invoice, whichever is applicable.
What happens after I pay the cost estimate for the service?
Once the payment is confirmed the part/s required for the service will be put on the order and preparatory steps for the forthcoming service will be taken.
Upon the receipt of the spare parts, the job will be routed to your local engineer on the next day basis. Depending on your location, the availability of the parts and workload we can sometimes source and fit the parts on the same day. The engineer will attend your site to fit the parts required. Your appliance works again.
