5. You have quoted me a fixed repair price for repair, why is the unit unrepairable?
Unfortunately, in some cases a unit is beyond repair due to the extent of the damage or because of unobtainable parts. In such cases we will return your unit to you using our dedicated carriage service, free of charge.

6. What does the repair process entail?
Each unit is assessed by an engineer specialising in a manufacturer’s equipment range. Working with dedicated test rigs all engineers have access to extensive manufacturer supplied spare parts stocks. Depending on the equipment type submitted for repair the engineers follow a strict process including:

  • All equipment is fully assessed and diagnosed in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidance to coincide with the fault report provided.  
  • Replace defective, damaged and worn components/modules and fix the diagnosed fault.
  • Preventative maintenance is undertaken by replacing weak components/modules that are known to cause problems.
  • Full upgrade to the latest software if available
  • All equipment is fully tested to manufacturer guidance in addition to a rigorous Maxey Moverley test of functionality.
  • Prior to despatch, all cameras and digital video recorders are subject to an overnight soak test.

To discuss the repair procedure for specific equipment types please email our customer services department at +44 (0)527 522299 or

7. Will I be charged if no fault is found?
We make an assumption that all units sent in for repair are faulty. Therefore, if our engineers are unable to find an obvious fault, they undertake prolonged testing and evaluation to find any intermittent or minor faults that may exist. This takes a considerable amount of time and may involve us contacting you to ascertain the problem you experienced.

Also, for many products, we undertake a refurbishment of known problematic components so as to increase service life. This enables us to warrant all repairs.

For these reasons we do charge if, after all this work, we are unable to find a specific fault.

8. How long is your warranty period?
All Maxey Moverley CCTV repairs benefit from a 12-month warranty from the date of despatch. Our EAS repairs benefit from a 6-month warranty from the date of despatch, all other repairs are supplied with a 3-month warranty form the date of despatch.

10. Is my equipment tested before it is returned?
Yes, prior to despatch all equipment is fully tested to manufacturer guidance in addition to a rigorous Maxey Moverley test of functionality. Equipment like cameras and DVRs is fully soak-tested overnight.

11. Do you have a helpline to discuss the issues faced with newly purchased units?
Maxey Moverley does not provide technical support for newly purchased units. Our technical helpline provides support for any issues found with repaired units on re-installation, these are covered under the Maxey Moverley warranty period.

12. What do I do if I experience any problems with a unit that you have repaired?
If you experience a problem with a unit that we have repaired for you please contact one of our specially trained technical team who will discuss the issues over the phone, free of charge.

Our aim is to resolve the problem on site and avoid the time and costs involved in returning products under the warranty scheme. However, if we are unable to help over the phone the unit will be given an individual RMA number which should be quoted on all returns paperwork to ensure we process all equipment in a timely manner.
