Engine Repair or Inspection Service
Overhaul Bids provides you with opportunities to submit aircraft maintenance and repair projects (each a “Project”) requesting certain aviation maintenance and repair products and services (each a “Service”) to certain third party merchants which have registered with Overhaul Bids (each a “Merchant”) so that one or more Merchants can provide a bid or estimate for provisioning such requested Service (each a “Bid”). Payment for a Service will be handled in stages as mutually agreed to between client and merchant (each a “Milestone”) By submitting a Project and/or accepting a Bid you agree to these Terms. Once you have accepted a Bid, you will discuss and agree upon Milestones with the Merchant to pay for the Service specified in such Bid, and your bank account or other payment mechanism will be charged for the amount specified in the Bid. You are required to create an Account in order to accept a Bid and purchase a Service so we can collect information to allow you to pay for your purchase and so we can provide you with easy access to details of your purchase, view your past purchases and modify your preferences. Service purchased through Bids on Overhaul Bids’ Sites and Services cannot be combined with any other coupons or promotions being offered by the Merchant providing such Service.
You shall be solely responsible for: (i) inputting accurate and appropriate information and/or images in submitting a Project (which shall include a good faith description or depiction of any applicable damage); (ii) continually updating any such information to the extent it becomes inaccurate at any time while a Project remains active; (iii) upon selecting a Bid in connection with a particular Project, beginning prompt communications with such Merchant to come to agreement and begin the maintenance or repair process; (iv) honoring the terms and pricing associated with the Bid of the winning Merchant; (v) maintaining strict confidentiality in respect of all information submitted by a Merchant in connection with a Project or a Bid; and (vi) promptly paying for the Service’s Milestones at appropriate times.

Therefore, any disputes related to the Service shall be between you and the Merchant, and Overhaul Bids shall not be responsible for providing you with a refund. We want you to be happy with your Overhaul Bids experience. If you have trouble with your purchase for any reason, please contact us at help@OverhaulBids.com so we can work with the Merchant to resolve your issue.
