TERMS + CONDITIONS
By using the services of The Grey Studio + Spa, you are demonstrating your acceptance to be bound by these Terms and Conditions (Terms). The Terms may be modified from time to time by updating this page. You should visit this page frequently to review the current Terms.
PRICING + PAYMENT
All estimates / quotes, unless those following a physical assessment of the item to be restored, are preliminary. The provisional price is a provisional estimate only, which shall be determined with reference to all relevant factors including, without limitation, the style and condition of the item, the material composition and nature of the damage. On occasion, we may exercise our right to revise the price upwards after providing a fixed quote due to unforeseen complexities or item condition.
Once the quote has been approved, you will be required to make payment for restoration work to commence. We accept all major credit cards, Paypal and EMT. All repairs are final sale. If the card or method of payment fails, we reserve the right to retain your items until full payment has been received.
REPAIRS + ALTERATIONS
The Grey Studio + Spa specializes in functional repair. Items of appreciated value, antiques, and other valuable items may have a diminished monetary value after customer-requested repair services are completed [recolouring + customization]. Work performed cannot be undone or returned back to the pre-repair condition. There are no refunds on any repairs, cleaning, dyeing or alterations. Dyed items may look different when viewed in different lighting, they may also have a different hand feel than original materials. We offer original hardware for many brands, but not all. We will speak to you about using generic hardware replacements if necessary. We provide good faith estimates as to when repairs will be completed and/or shipped; they are not to be considered deadlines. The use of the words “restore”, “restoring”, or “restoration” on this website does not mean we can bring any item back to ‘brand new’ or ‘original factory condition’. If you have any concerns once you recieve your item(s), please contact us within 5 business days so we can remedy any issues in a timely manner.
We reserve the right to use photographs of your item for our marketing materials, including but not limited to; website, social media, printed materials, etc. We will not reveal customer identities unless otherwise requested. Any signifying markers such as initials, monograms, or personalization will be blurred or hidden, unless otherwise requested. If you would prefer photos of your item not be used, please let us know in writing.
