Courts offering free repair service for electrical appliances

Persons with damaged electrical appliances now have an opportunity to have these items repaired free of charge, thanks to furniture and appliance store Courts St Vincent Limited.{{more}}

This weekend, the technical and repairs department of the company will be heading to areas that were affected by the December storms, to fix these items, whether they were damaged in the storm or not, or whether or not they were bought at Courts.

Courts Technical Service manager Nadine Davis said that the team would begin their “repair relief” in Chateaubelair, setting up shop at Super Dan’s Shop from 9 a.m. to 12 noon this Friday.

Then, from 1 p.m. the crew will move to the area outside the Learning Resource Centre in Rose Bank.

On Saturday, the repairmen would be at the Spring Village Playing field from 9 a.m to 12 noon, and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the vicinity of the service station in Pembroke.

Davis said that the team will undertake a similar venture on the island’s Windward coast, from South Rivers to Sandy Bay, on a date to be announced.

“Courts is aware that some of the items would need parts in order to make them functional again, so while the actual repairs are free, we would be offering huge discounts for these parts, if they are required,” Davis said.

“Also, if you reside in an area that was not affected and have an appliance to repair, you can come to the closest service station to have that item fixed,” she added.

Davis said that the initiative is an opportunity for Courts to fulfill its corporate duties, as it continues to make life easier for persons in these trying times.

Over the last month, Courts has individually donated fridges, stoves, mattresses, pillows and foodstuff to persons affected by the Christmas disaster, and would continue to do so in any way it can, Davis pointed out.
