RMA numbers are valid for 14 days from the date of issue. RMA numbers must be written on the outside of the shipping carton. Please use a copy of the RMA form as a packing list and include it in the box with your return. Any returned packages that do not clearly display a valid RMA number will be refused.
Goods outside of 14 days are subject to the (return to base) RTB (return to base) warranty after which all customers are responsible for carriage charges associated with the return of products as well as the proper packaging of the items to avoid product damage during transit.
Please note: Under 14 day collections made on suspected faulty items will become chargeable along with return postage if the unit is deemed non defective when tested.
Advanced replacements can be issued on certain items within 14 days of the invoice date, but associated credits will only be issued if the item is faulty, complete and free from damage. If this is not the case there may be a charge applicable or the non defective unit will be returned to customer and no credit given.
Please note: Advanced replacement for customers that have a cash only account (i.e. pay by credit/debit card) will be required to complete a Credit/Debit card Authorisation form before an advanced replacement is sent out to them.
