We will assess the product and decide if repairing the product is appropriate, or replacement of certain parts or the entire product is required.

In order to claim
We must be notified as soon as possible after the defect had been discovered, and proof of purchase will be required in the form of the original invoice. You may be asked to send photos or other evidence of the defect, and a site visit may be arranged. We must be notified of the defect before replacement or repair has taken place, and confirmation from us that the claim has been approved is required before replacement work takes place. If the replacement or repair work has been carried out without notifying us before-hand, the claim will not be approved.
