Warranty returns

Products sold are individually covered by manufacturer warranties, please familiarize yourself with the length, terms and conditions of any warranty cover on the items that you purchase. Unless stated otherwise by the manufacturer, warranties only apply to goods supplied within the Republic of South Africa for personal use. In most cases warranty claims will be handled by the manufacturer’s approved agents.

It should be noted that in most cases warranty covers manufacturing faults or defects in the original product only.  Common inherent characteristics, damage or faults occurring from fair wear and tear, improper use, failure to follow instructions, failure to follow care and maintenance instructions, accidental damage, commercial use, alterations, severe weather events, animals, insects and acts of god are not covered by warranty.

Certain brands may offer a lifetime warranty of their product. The term Lifetime is determined by the average lifetime of the fabrics, material and components of the product. As with all items, over time they will wear from use at a natural rate and from exposure to the elements, the lifetime guarantee of products will depend on how well they are cared for and how they are used.

The first step to get a warranty return under way is to contact us with your details and a description of the problem, we may request some photos of the issue.  From these details we will be able to advise on the next course of action. When an item is sent in it will be inspected by the manufacturer or their agent to confirm its eligibility for a warranty claim.  Once deemed as a warranty issue it will be handled in accordance with the manufacturer’s warranty policies.
