If requesting a repair under warranty, please ensure that your product is eligible before sending/collecting. If it was both sourced and purchased within the European economic area and, usually, within twelve months, it will be covered under normal guarantee terms. If purchased outside of the European economic area then a repair will be chargeable.
Please remember to include a copy of your original purchase receipt. Do not send the original. If appropriate, please also include a copy of your extended warranty certificate. These will be retained for a period of 6 months following repair completion, after which, they will be responsibly shredded and recycled.
If the required repair to your product is covered under the terms of the warranty, a repair will normally be completed within our target turnaround of 2 engineering days outside of spares availability.
If, on a warranty covered product, there is no fault apparent, your product will be returned to you or you will be notified to collect your product.
If the problem is found to be one that is not covered under the terms of the warranty, or if the unit is found to be one that does not qualify for repairs under the warranty, an estimate will be raised and provided to you by telephone or e-mail.
Once a warranty repair has been completed, we will confirm to you either by telephone or e-mail. At this point, arrangements can be made for you to collect the unit or, alternatively, we can return it to you depending on the contracted service agreed.
You will be charged an initial inspection fee, and collection fee if applicable, as per our current schedule of charges which will be redeemable against the final cost of repair.
