If a Periodic Service is arranged by the Customer where HCA authorised personnel arrive to carry out the arranged Service and find the machine is not available at the agreed time for them to carry out the scheduled servicing, then any standby/waiting time incurred by the HCA authorised personnel will be charged as an additional cost to the Customer at the HCA standard local rate. If the Service has been booked outside the normal HCA working hour day or either on a Saturday or Sunday, waiting time incurred by the HCA authorised personnel will be charged as an additional cost at the local overtime rate.
