    DISCLAIMER


    *VINCE CHRISTIAN Small Engine Repair will not be held responsible to inspect any piece of equipment for physical or mechanical defects or damage at time of pick up or upon it being delivered to us as we simply do not have the time. *The plastic hoods and body panels on John Deere riding mowers are especially prone to cracking as they become very brittle over time. With this in mind we always take every precaution when working on these mowers, however, sometimes it is impossible to prevent cracking as we have to remove the hoods and body panels in order to perform repairs. We can not and will not be held responsible if cracking occurs while we are performing needed approved repairs. The customer is solely responsible to note and or bring to the attention of VINCE CHRISTIAN Small Engine Repair the physical condition or defects of any and all equipment prior to pick up or delivery. The customer is solely responsible to remove any and all items from their equipment prior to pick up or delivery. VINCE CHRISTIAN will not be held responsible for the loss or theft of items left on any equipment. Thank You.

    *During the repair process, we inspect all components for wear an tear to the best of our ability. However, items such as but, not limited to: belts, pull cords, pulleys, spindles and any other such components can wear out and/or break at any time. We can not be held responsible should any piece of equipment fail while in our possession. Thank You.

    *The cleaning of equipment is necessary in order to properly inspect mechanical and electrical components. There is no charge for blowing off light grass build up. However, at no time is the cleaning of excessive and or severely compacted grass and dirt off any piece of equipment automatically included in or part of any labor or repair procedure. The cleanliness of any and all equipment is the sole responsibility of the owner and should be performed routinely after each use. If the cleaning of any piece of equipment such as degreasing of the engine or transmission to inspect for leaks or cleaning of excessive or compacted grass and dirt build up off the cutting deck or other body parts to perform inspection or repairs is necessary, the time and materials that it takes to perform said cleaning will be added to the cost of the repair. Please make sure to inspect, run and or test drive your equipment upon delivery after repair. Should you have a concern, do not wait, call us immediately! 
        Thank You Very Much!
