Call outs, parts and labour will be charged according to our prevailing rates.

Please note that our contractual customers enjoy priority for repair visits and therefore we might not be able to come out to your coffee machine within 24 hours from your call.

Our current standard rate for this service is £52.50 per hour, minimum charge one hour, chargeable in half hour increments thereafter. Parts billed separately.

Annual Maintenance Contract - Overview

For customers who want peace of mind or who take out machinery on a financed lease, we offer fully comprehensive service maintenance agreements.

These agreements cover preventative service maintenance visits as well as repair visits during the agreement period. Apart from the annual agreement cost, no further charges will apply.

Service maintenance agreements are available for all out equipment unless specified at the point of purchase. Bean 14 offers rolling contracts up to the fourth anniversary of the manufacturing date of the equipment.

If an annual maintenance contract is taken out after the warranty period, Bean 14 will back date the maintenance contract to include comprehensive cover for machines which are within 15 months of installation and if a WMF product, within the recommended brew count.

Machines that are over 15 months old will require to be assessed by a Bean 14 service engineer and returned to warranty standard at the customer’s cost. The cost will be calculated based on the condition of the machine.

All service maintenance agreements are subject to our standard terms and conditions. All Annual Maintenance Contracts are subject to ingredient supply and care of equipment.

Annual Maintenance Contract - What is Included?

The comprehensive service maintenance agreement includes annual preventative maintenance to ensure continuous protection of your equipment.

Should your equipment require a boiler inspection, it is included in the annual preventative maintenance service. Please note that Bean 14 can only facilitate the physical work of the boiler inspection. It is the customer’s responsibility to arrange for a competent person to attend the inspection and to issue the statutory examination report.

If the boiler inspection falls outside of the scheduled preventative maintenance, additional charges apply.

The service maintenance agreement also includes all callouts, parts and labour cost for repair visits with a response time within 5 Hours on weekdays (excluding public holidays). Further, the annual agreement cost is irrespective of machine options.

Annual Maintenance Contract - What is Excluded?

In general, our auxiliary units e.g. coffee grinders, milk coolers and refrigeration units are not covered under our service maintenance agreements.

Further, please note that misuse and abuse e.g. lack of cleaning is not covered either.

Please be aware that machine specific brew count limitations apply and that supplements like water filters and cleaning chemicals are not included in the agreement cost.
