SERVICE TICKET TERMS AND AGREEMENT

Thank You for Your Business

Here at Columbia Scuba, we are committed to providing timely and professional service work on a multitude of brands. In order to best serve our customers, communication is key. Before submitting your service request, please read through the following:

 

Brands We Service: Atomic, Dacor(99-06), Genesis, Hollis, Mares, Oceanic, OTS, Sherwood, SpairAir, Suunto*, and Zeagle

Terms of Service

- Standard turn-around times are only guaranteed for routine rebuilds. If your regulator needs parts outside of what comes in a standard rebuild kit, additional time may be required.

- For regulators made pre 2000, please call to ask for parts availability first. Not all manufacturers keep up with regulator support and parts availability may be scarce.

- All costs outside of standard labor and service kits will be communicated with the customer or dive shop before work proceeds.

- Individual customers payment information will never be kept on file. Dive shops will have the option to store their payment information on file for ease of multiple transactions.

- All return shipping will go through UPS Ground unless otherwise specified. Shipping cost can never be guaranteed due to variable factors and will be calculated at Columbia Scuba’s discretion. All shipping costs will be billed to the customer.
