Alan and Steve's Guarantee to you

We are Bernina Main Agents.
​​​​​​​Our guarantee covers your Bernina S 480 for two years and includes parts and labour, but not transport. It may be an idea to retain the box and internal packaging - if you have space.
In the unlikely event that you experience any problems with your machine, please phone us as 'faults' can often be rectified over the phone.
​​​​​​​Dad always used to say the workshop is the backbone of our business. From the 1970's both Alan and Steve learned the trade by starting in the workshop. Since those early days, we have both attended many technical training courses across the UK, Germany and Switzerland.​​​​​​​  

Berninas Warranty

The Bernina Warranty covers your Bernina for seven years. 
Their guarantee covers main parts and labour. As a condition you must have your machine serviced every three years by a Bernina Agent.
Service work is chargeable.
