you are over the age of 17; and
you are not a User previously removed from the system by Schmicko.
We retain the right in our sole discretion to deny anyone access to this Website if you do not comply with our Terms.
As part of our Services, you may order, and Schmicko’s representatives may provide, but not limited to, vehicle, marine, automotive-related services, car wash and detailing Services for your vehicle. For any other products or services, we offer on our website, please refer to the warranties (if any, listed on our Website and below).
Schmicko uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the service will be provided in a professional and satisfactory manner. You understand and agree, however, that Schmicko does not guarantee that your service will be performed to meet any applicable industry or professional standards. Due to varying conditions a vehicle/vessel may be presented in, Schmicko is unable to guarantee to meet the desired preference/expectation of the customer.
You agree that time slots are estimates and completion times will vary depending on the condition of your vehicle. In addition to the latter, the price of Services performed may be subjected but not limited to change depending on the state of your vehicle and the customer’s desired preference (prices are all correct as of the date advertised on our Website). Arrival times may be subjected to delay due to but not limited to, prior bookings requiring additional time, traffic, unforeseen events and so on.
Services offered, will not include the removal of any parts such as, but not limited to the removal of seats, baby seats, door panels, spare tyre section, underneath the carpet and so on due to safety concerns. Services will only be performed on the areas as advertised in our packages on the website. Any additional parts that require cleaning will either not be cleaned eg. Adding extra car mats, additional boot lining, car seat covers and so on.
Extras and add-ons may be added to each booking for a more customised option and can be stacked to provide additional time. Eg. A Gold Mini Detail Package includes an upholstery seat shampoo, but additional time and passes can be purchased by adding the upholstery seat shampoo extra again.
You understand and agree that due to dangerous/poor weather conditions (for example, rain/hail), we and our representatives reserve the right to reschedule or postpone your booking.
Our representatives reserve the right to refuse to service a particular area of the vehicle that is prone to damage as it is already tampered/damaged e.g., broken, or dislodged air vent and so on as to avoid further damage.
If the customer wishes for the Provider not to perform or use certain chemicals or processes e.g. deodoriser, plastic dressings, or engine bay rinse, it is their responsibility to inform both Schmicko prior to the booking and the Provider on the day. Otherwise, services will be performed as specified on our website. It is the responsibility of the Customer to understand the health implications with the chemicals and procedures that we use e.g. if you are allergic to a certain chemical, we need to be informed.
Potential Risks Across Services
When working on older cars, parts become brittle and dry rotted and may break when attempting to remove them. The customer will not hold Schmicko responsible for fragile areas inclusive but not limited to broken fastener covers, tabs, door clips, or any other parts that may break due to the age or condition of the vehicle.
Potential risks associated with car roof lining repair include, but not limited to, plastics and surrounding areas such as the pillars, roof canvas, screws, clips and so on being prone to breaking during the installation process. This is due to the fact that these areas become brittle as they age, which also applies for Schmicko’s Dash Cam Installation process.
Potential risks of window tinting installations that the customer must accept as possible outcomes include, but not limited to, possible complications associated with the use of a water mixture to clean windows and install tints, the removal of the aerial/demister grid lines when removing the rear window tinting, the existence of dust specs in the film, which are inevitable as no tint installation can guarantee a 100% dust-free environment despite adequate cleaning procedures being actioned. Window tinting will never be perfect. Dust and imperfections can be found in any window when aftermarket tint is applied. Dot-matrix will look white or silver when the tint is applied over it. This is to be expected. Repair of these imperfections will be determined by Schmicko.
Warranty for window tinting services must be communicated and addressed between the customer and installer and not with Schmicko. Services do not include the cleaning of the parked environment or floor surface although Representatives will take utmost care to keep the area clean in a condition to where it was presented just prior to our service.
Not all demister bars and antennas are manufactured and installed perfectly, and due to this, there can never be a 100% guarantee that damage will not occur. Our processes are designed to minimise the chance of possible damage and are consistent from vehicle to vehicle. If there are specific sensitivities with your vehicle to certain processes, we must be advised prior.
Window tinting shades on certain windows of your vehicle may be illegal in certain states due to varying tint laws across each state. You assume all responsibilities and do not hold Schmicko responsible or liable in any way. Schmicko will only install legal tints in compliance with the NSW legal tint laws.
Window tint is applied with soap and water mixture. When tinting windows (especially a windshield or rear glass) Schmicko will not be responsible for problems associated from the use of the water mixture. Schmicko take significant caution and care across all our installations to minimise possible risk, but problems can still be a possibility. Customers are welcome to choose another service provider as our replacement should the use of water may be of concern.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that Schmicko’s total liability to you for any actual or alleged damages arising out of or related to this Agreement (including, without limitation, actual or alleged damages to your vehicle resulting from a wash performed by Schmicko’s representatives or your interactions with a Schmicko representative) will be as is set forth in the Limitation of Liability section below.
By providing a signature, you are providing absolute confirmation that the Service was completed to satisfaction. Anyone who is not the owner of the car who has been delegated the task to inspect and sign will too assume these standards/responsibilities of approval and confirmation on behalf of the owner.
If you choose to make a reservation for our Services, then you must:
Verify the location of your vehicle before submitting a reservation;
Ensure that the Services have been granted permission to be performed at your location;
Leave your vehicle in a public location where a Schmicko representative is authorised to enter and perform the Services; and
You understand that it is your responsibility to remove all valuables from your vehicle before our representative arrives to service your car. You also understand that you should exercise reasonable judgment in locking your car doors before leaving your vehicle unattended in a public location. You agree that it is the responsibility of the customer to have their vehicle parked in the allocated service spot, not the Schmicko technician.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you inform the representative servicing your vehicle of any defects or circumstances that are not suitable for specific tasks (for example, washing the engine bay) we carry out as advertised in the packages advertised on our Website (“Website Packages”). You agree that our representatives only carry out the tasks advertised on our Website Packages. For “Engine Bay Rinses”, you accept that our representative will only carry this task out on your request, and you accept the performance of this Service at your sole risk of any damage or loss to your car.
If your car or any part of it is already damaged or partially damaged or contains any defects you agree to release and hold us harmless from any damage, aligned expectation, or loss to your car through the performance of our Services. For any specific or unusual tasks, our representatives reserve the right not to perform certain tasks where there is a risk of damaging the specific item or car part that needs cleaning (for example, pollutants, sand or grass deeply imbedded in car mats where cleaning may result in the shredding of the mat fabric; where there is staining in the roof lining and the application of shampoo or pressure may result in destroying or weakening any existing glue adhesiveness so that your car roof sags). You accept that we can minimise stains but do not guarantee the complete removal of any stains or smells and that our representatives have the right to not undertake certain tasks where there is a risk of damage or loss to your car.
In order to replace the roof liner in our Roof Lining Repair Service, surrounding support components must be removed prior to access the roof lining. Although a rare occurrence, this repair service entails the potential risk of breakage/damage as older car models tend to become brittle over time.
Due to the nature of the service, Schmicko will not be liable for damages during the roof lining repair service for vehicles older than the age of 10 years eg. (2012 and older) and will perform the service with due care.
Removal of signage/decals/stickers from the vehicle can cause discolouration. To alleviate the discrepancy, a machine buff can be used to level the paintwork but cannot guarantee 100% blending with areas covered and not covered by the signage.
Though Schmicko strives for perfection in our tint installations, due to the nature of the product and environment, some degree of dust contamination/specks and or minor imperfections can be present in every window film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted. The level of contamination will determine the need for replacement on a case-by-case basis.
You accept that we and our representatives have the right to cancel or reschedule our Services and charge you a cancellation fee if the location for servicing your car is unsafe or inaccessible or if you are not present or there are no required access points such as power and water.
You agree that after you have performed a final inspection and/or provided your signature after the supply of the Services, that you have accepted the supply of the Services and have no further claims. By taking delivery of your car, you are deemed to have accepted the car in its condition.
Failure to adhere to your obligations hereunder may result in our inability to provide you with our Services and therefore you will be billed a cancellation fee.
In no event will Schmicko be liable to you or any third party for any alleged or actual damages or losses resulting directly or indirectly from your failure to adhere to your obligations under this Agreement.
Warranty for services such as tinting will need to be followed up with the Tinting technician. Based on the tint manufacturer’s warranty, it is warranted against peeling, bubbling, cracking, de-metallising and discolouring for as long as you own your car. Your warranty is not transferable and is limited to the replacement of film and associated labour costs. This warranty does not cover film damaged by scratching, glass failure, glass breakage, leakage glass, film which has been subjected to mistreatment, abuse, improper care, film which has had stickers applied, suction cups, or similar are attached. This warranty does not cover any consequential loss however caused. All warranties implied by statute which can be excluded are excluded. Proof of purchase and current ownership will be required when making a claim. Warranty application form can be found here

Schmicko reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users may opt-out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement. Schmicko is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. Schmicko may, in its sole discretion, modify or update this Agreement from time to time, and so you should review this page periodically. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the ‘last modified’ date at the bottom of this page. Your continued use of the Services after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Services. If you do not agree to any of these Terms or any future Terms of Services, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Services.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter with Schmicko in connection with the Services, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Schmicko concerning the Services. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Schmicko’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
