House Rules

By participating in a Repair Café workshop, you agree to the following:

  • Repair Café is free of charge on a voluntary basis by the participants.
  • Guests perform the repairs themselves whenever possible, but repair coaches help as needed.
  • Volunteers at Repair Café are unpaid and do not have professional training.
  • Neither the organizers of the Repair Café, the volunteers or guests (collectively, “the participants”) are liable for any loss that may result from advice or instructions concerning repairs, for the loss of items being repaired, for indirect or consequential loss, or for any other kind of loss resulting from work performed in the Repair Café or the operation of the repaired item.
  • A voluntary donation is greatly appreciated.
  • Any use of new materials such as wires, plugs, and fuses will be paid for separately.
  • Guests offering broken items for repair do so at their own risk.
  • Repair coaches assisting in repairs offer no guarantee for the repairs carried out with their help and are not liable if repaired items do not work properly at home.
  • Repair coaches are entitled to refuse to repair certain objects.
  • Repair coaches are not obliged to reassemble disassembled items.
  • Guests are solely responsible for the tidy removal of broken objects that could not be repaired.
  • Repairs may be limited to one item per guest. The guest may be asked to join the back of the line if there is a second item for repair.
