  • Visitors should carry out the repairs themselves whenever possible, but repair volunteers on site will help when necessary.


  • The work carried out in the Repair Café is performed free of charge and the individuals who help you do so on a voluntary basis.  Any new materials or replacement parts that are purchased must be paid for by the visitor.


  • Visitors bringing broken items for repair do so at their own risk.  Neither the organizers of the Repair Café nor the repair volunteers nor venue are liable for any loss that may result from advice or instructions concerning repairs, for the loss of items handed over for repair, for consequential loss or for any other kind of loss resulting from work performed in the Repair Café.


  • Visitors agree to release, indemnify, and hold harmless Five Cities Repair Café and its officers, and agents against loss, liability, injury, and damages arising from participation in the Five Cities Repair Café.


  • Volunteers helping to make repairs, or making repairs directly themselves, offer no guarantee for the repairs carried out and are not liable if objects that are repaired in the Repair Café turn out not to work properly at home.


  • Repair experts are entitled to refuse to repair certain objects.


  • Repair volunteers are not obliged to reassemble disassembled items that cannot be repaired.  Visitors to Repair Café are solely responsible for the tidy removal of broken objects that could not be repaired.


  • To cut down on unnecessary waiting times during busy periods, a maximum of ONE broken item per person will be examined. The visitor will join the back of the queue if there is a second item for repair.

  • The Five Cities Repair Café is authorized to use any photographs and videos taken at the repair event that may include the visitor in the picture.  Images may be used for flyers, brochures, press materials and other printed materials or on websites to promote the Repair Café concept.

  • A voluntary donation is greatly appreciated.
