Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an AV HERO app?

ASAP requests are used when you have a job that needs an immediate response. FUTURE requests are used when you would like to schedule a specific time for a HERO to arrive.

What if AV HERO can’t fix my problem?
If AV HERO can’t fix your problem, it’s most likely because you have equipment that needs to be repaired and/or replaced. If this is the case, we will refer you to a local partner that can take care of you; with your permission of course.
When will I pay for the service?
You credit card will be charged once you approve the service, 72 hours after the HERO marks the job as complete or once AV HERO resolves a contested job; whichever happens first.
What if my AV HERO needs to purchase a part?
Your AV HERO should always seek approval before purchasing or providing any miscellaneous parts that are needed to complete the job. If your AV HERO arrives onsite and determines that a part is needed to complete the job they will:
#1 – Notify you that a part is needed to complete the job
#2 – Provide an estimate of the cost for the part
#3 – Seek your approval to purchase the part
All parts provided through the AV HERO platform are provided at cost, without markup.
If your AV HERO needs to leave the job site to purchase a part that has been approved, you will be charged for the time it takes to travel and get the part.
How many jobs can I request?
You can request as many ASAP and FUTURE jobs as you need.
What if I need to reschedule my service?
If a HERO has not accepted your job, then you can cancel and reschedule at any time. If you need to reschedule your job after a HERO has accepted, you will want to reach out to your HERO directly and coordiante. If your HERO is unable to accommodate your reschedule request then you will want to cancel and resubmit your job. Depending upon the nature and timing of the request, you may still be charged the one hour minimum fee of $75.00 for cancelling a job after a HERO has accepted.
What if I need to cancel my job?
