Our customer charter details what we aim to achieve when dealing with both new and ongoing customers and projects. Although they do not make up part of our contract with you, they should provide a reliable guide of what to expect from The Design Mechanics. If, for whatever reason, we believe a project is not going to hit our aimed-for timescales by more than 24 hours we will always do our best to let you know!
Remember - if you need your project completing to a specific deadline, please inform us of this on ordering.
