*Terms and conditions: Applies to Gates dealerships only and Gates reserves the right to withdraw or change this without prior notice. All refund requests must be brought to the attention of the Service Manager within 14 days of the customer visit and the Service Manager must be allowed 5 days to respond. 1. The technician must be able to justify in writing the technical reasons why the work reported was (in the case of red work) either unsafe, illegal or preventative of a more serious/expensive repair, or (in the case of amber work) likely to need to be done or at least checked again, prior to the vehicle's next service date. 2. Consultation with technician must be mutually agreed by appointment only. Customers should contact their service advisor to arrange a suitable appointment. 3. A visual healthcheck will not be completed for vehicles returning to the workshop within 7 days of a previous visit and standalone MOT's are excluded. 4. Prices will only be quoted where the vehicle has been inspected. If the vehicle has not been inspected by Gates, only an estimate will be provided. Any additional work that becomes evident after the repair starts will always have to be authorised by the customer and followed by a separate quotation.

**Gates Price match terms and conditions: An alternative quote must be provided either before work has been undertaken by Gates or within 14 days of the repair being carried out, in which case the lower price will be matched, providing customer produces a written quotation for an identical job, including genuine Ford-supplied parts, from a repairer who is subscribed to the Motor Industry Code of Practice, within a 5 mile radius of a Gates dealership. In all cases, Gates reserves the right to check and validate the qualifying quotation and to refuse any claims which they reasonably believe do not meet the eligibility conditions.
