We cannot guarantee the accuracy of cost estimates. It is therefore expressly noted, that cost estimates are not given with express warranty for their accuracy. If while repairing the motorcycle it becomes clear that more extensive repair work is necessary, we will inform Customer that we expect the cost estimate to be exceeded and will present a new estimate to Customer. In the case of the motorcycle being in a dangerous condition, we are authorised to complete the necessary repair without Customer confirmation even if the repair costs then exceed the cost estimate.

Late Payment Fee
Most people pay their invoices when it's due. However, when people miss payments the cost for us to chase overdue bills is substantial. To help recover these costs a late payment fee/interest may apply to overdue invoices. This means if your payment is late, Carbon Garage may, at its sole discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to it, to charge a late payment fee on your invoice. To avoid late payment fees, the easiest way is to arrange to pay your bill online on time before the due date. We will always send you an invoice on work we have carried out on your motorcycles. Depending on the length of time and size of the job required, we will provide you with a weekly or monthly statement so that you can get on top on your outstanding invoices. Carbon Garage reserve the right to refuse and not provide goods or services if you do not pay your invoice on time. Simple.
- If you have paid for a motorcycle, vehicle, product or service we have provided, no refund will be offered if you have simply changed your mind or circumstances where you have issues with the purchase beyond our control after delivery of the product(s) or after the motorcycle or product items have been picked up from our store.
- You are covered by the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act (CGA). Remedies under the Consumer Guarantees Act and other consumer laws may be available for products or services that are supplied to you, but only if we fail to meet our consumer guarantees or promises.
