4. Repairs

 

4.1 Cobble Craft Pty Ltd will do everything within its power to ensure the repair lasts, going beyond what is necessary, such as several coats of glue on certain materials. As different shoe manufacturers sometimes use certain chemicals in their materials, it is not guaranteed that such chemicals will not have an adverse effect on the glue that we use. We cannot guarantee the repair of item(s) with irreparable defects, or guarantee the repair of item(s) with defects not brought to our attention prior to us receiving them.

4.2 All repairs - In a situation where we have to make the decision of choosing aesthetic appeal or durability, we will always choose the latter. We will try to colour-match the original materials as closely as possibly, but cannot always guarantee an exact match in colour, tread, density, or thickness. We will always choose the material we deem to be most suitable for your item(s).

4.3.1 Clean/Polish - We cannot guarantee complete removal of stains/marks from leather/suede. Some stains are harder to lift than others. However, we will try our best to get the item(s) looking as good as they possibly can. When cleaning suede, there is a slight possibility that it may discolour. Though we will take every precaution, sometimes this is unavoidable, as it depends on the types of dyes the manufacturer has used, and whether or not have been sealed properly afterwards. The risk of discolouration has been clearly stated within these terms and conditions, and remains the sole responsibility of the Customer. 

4.3.2 Shoe/Boot Stretching - Although most materials will stretch somewhat, we cannot always guarantee that stretching will rectify your initial problem. We can generally stretch shoes/boots up to half a size, but it is not a guarantee, and some materials have been known to shrink back over time.

 

4.3.3 Combo Deals - We reserve the right to decide if Combo Deal selected by the User is sufficient in fixing overall problem. If Mini-Makeover has been selected, but major work has to be done, we may increase the price of the overall repair.

 

4.3.4 Buckles/Elastics - Although we will always try to match elastic and buckles - thickness, shape, size, and colour - we can not guarantee that it will be perfectly identical to the original.

4.4 Please inspect your item(s) immediately upon receipt, and notify us within 48 hours if you have any complaints, concerns or questions regarding the repair Our repairs are guaranteed for a period of ninety (90) days, with the exception of zip repairs, and cleaning/polishing.

If we decide that the item is irreparable, a refund up to a maximum of the amount you paid us for the repair will be issued, minus postage. We will not be held responsible for any other loss or damage (such as the cost of replacement or the cost of not having the item available to you for any period of time).
