Refund, Return & Warranty Policy

 

What is our return policy?

We do not normally give refunds or exchanges if you:

• change your mind; or

• purchased the wrong product; or

• damage a product after purchase; or

• no proof of purchase is provided.

 

How can I be eligible for Refund, Return, Warranty Claim & or Consumer Guarantee Claim?

To be eligible for a refund, return, warranty claim or consumer guarantee claim consumers must meet the following requirements:

• report the details of the fault and take the goods back to Ergostore (or return them by post or courier);

• provide proof of purchase when returning the goods;

• stop using the faulty item;

• ensure reasonable care is taken while the goods are in your possession.

• be sure that you did not cause the fault ie. fault was not caused by the product being used in an abnormal or non-recommended way. Such a use may be noted in the manufacturer’s warranty as rendering the manufacturer’s warranty void;

• the product must not be disposed of, lost or destroyed. In other words, we need to be able to prove that the product has failed; and

• not have reduced in value by delay on the customer's part. Customers should bring faults to Ergostore's attention soon after they occur.

Ergostore reserves the right to reject a return, a refund, warranty claim or consumer guarantee claim if consumers:

• Change their mind about a product. This includes when a consumer has found a cheaper product elsewhere, has bought a gift that is unsuitable, or their circumstances have changed and they no longer require the goods.

• Caused the fault by using the product in an abnormal way. Such a use may be noted in the manufacturer’s warranty as rendering it void, or it may be a use that you wouldn't reasonably expect the product to perform

• Damage the product where the damage is caused by any factors beyond our control.

• Are unable to provide a proof of purchase, namely a tax invoice.

• Are responsible for damaging the goods by not following the care instructions (if any are provided).

• customer notifies Ergostore within 7 days of receipt of delivery of the product;

Returning goods to Ergostore

Ergostore do not take responsibility for any goods damaged or lost in transit when the customer sends the product back to us for warranty or return. The manufacturer’s warranty may be void if the product is damaged in transit. Please ensure the product is packed appropriately for shipping before sending it back to us. If you are unsure about how to pack a product appropriately for shipping please contact us. The consumer is responsible for any and all charges associated with returning the goods to Ergostore.

 

Consumers may personally return goods to Ergostore in our opening hours with prior arrangement. No service fee will be charged to consumers who personally return goods to Ergostore.

For RTB (return to base) manufacturer’s warranty claims: customers are required to send the unit back to the authorized service centre with proof of purchase and a detailed fault description. Ergostore recommends customers to contact us to obtain further information on the warranty procedures and also access online status updates.

 

For Manufacturer direct warranty claims: customers are recommended to contact the manufacturer for expert technical support & warranty assistance, to lodge warranty claims and organize pickup or delivery. Please note, Ergostore do not provide pickup services on behalf of the manufacturer/3rd party service centres. Please read manufacturer’s warranty cards/manuals for additional information regarding support and warranty.

Ergostore do not accept the return or exchange if consumers

• simply changed their mind;

• the goods are damaged due to misuse; or

• already knew of a particular fault in a product or we advised you of a particular fault in a product prior to purchase.

 

Free items bear no value and are not transferrable under any circumstances. If a Free item (promotional or otherwise) is not available, Ergostore will endeavour to provide a suitable alternative at its sole discretion. If there is not alternate item available, the consumer will not have any claim to compensation, as the free item bears no value.

A limited warranty may also apply for clearance, discontinued, or floorstock and demo items. Please read the product description or contact us for more details if you are unsure whether a product within the category above has limited warranty or not.

 

Manufacturer’s Warranty

Before any manufacturer’s warranty claim, consumers are requested to make sure the product is:

• Not affected by being used incorrectly or in an abnormal way. Such a use may be noted in the warranty as rendering it void, or it may be a use that you wouldn't reasonably expect the product to perform.

• Not disposed of, lost or destroyed. In other words, there needs to be proof that the product has failed.

• Not reduced in value by delay on the customer's part. Customers should bring faults to Ergostore’s attention soon after they occur.

 

Ergostore is not a manufacturer or authorized service centre, therefore it is highly recommended that customers contact the manufacturer's technical support directly for any troubleshooting or technical support advice before you return the product to us for a warranty claim. Some of these manufacturer provided support services are free and may provide you expert technical advice. If the product is deemed faulty, in many cases, a tech support case number is assigned.

If the manufacturer directs you to return the product back to us then you should contact us directly.

 

Ergostore also reserves the right to apply any service fees for any warranty claims to cover all costs incurred including inbound & return freight, supplier/manufacturer service fees etc if the returned product is found to be not covered by warranty, warranty has expired, or no fault is found or the item was physically damaged.
