Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service and support, but specific results cannot be guaranteed.

  2. The length of time required to service/repair your computer cannot be predetermined.

  3. When you contract with us for a service or repair, you understand that in the process of working on your computer equipment, there is a potential for data loss. You agree that you have made the necessary steps to back up your data so that, in the event of such loss, the data can be restored. HBC will not be responsible for data loss, nor will HBC be responsible for restoring lost data. (See 4.4 below). HBC, at customer’s request, can back up your data for a fee. However, HBC will not be responsible for any data loss incurred in the data back-up/restoration process.

  4. You authorize the HBC technician(s) providing the service or repair to install anti-virus and any other necessary software on your computer to perform required services. All software will be deleted or uninstalled upon completion of the service (unless it was purchased by customer).

  6. After an in-store repair is complete, you must take possession of your computer within 7 calendar days or there will be a storage fee of $3.00 a day. Any item left over 30 days will be considered forfeited and sold.

Billing Terms

  2. In-store repairs and services are charged a flat fee rate – including parts and labor.

  3. At times, an in-store service or repair may involve a customer bringing his or her own parts to the store for installation. This type of service costs $95/hr.
