Returns Policy

To return goods, you must contact the vendor for a Return Authorization Number (RAN). Only faulty products or products that do not operate as advertised will be accepted for return.

The vendor will not accept the return or cancellation of purchases if the item is in an unsaleable condition. Items or products that have been built to order, such as custom systems, cannot be returned.

Please package the relevant item securely, record the RAN on the outside of the package and send it in time for the Vendor to receive it within 7 working days from the issue date of the RAN. Goods will not be accepted for return beyond this period.

For your protection, we recommend you have adequate insurance for the item you are returning. Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the goods unless the vendor has delivered them to you in error. All returned goods are the responsibility of the customer until received by the vendor.

All products are shipped direct from the manufacturer and are carefully checked for any defects prior to dispatch. When a faulty product is returned within the warranty period it will be inspected and replaced as efficiently as possible. If a product is found to be faulty due to a defect, this is normally covered by the manufacturer’s own warranty. Please call for details of the warranty returns policy for specific manufacturers. Please note that you will be responsible for the costs of returning the goods to the vendor or the manufacturer.

Customer refunds will be paid in Australian dollars for faulty products that are returned and cannot be replaced with new versions of the same product. All items returned and found to contain no fault will be either (a) returned to the customer at their expense or (b) restocked subject to a 25% restocking fee providing the goods are in original stock condition. Please note that return authorization numbers are only valid for 7 days. Returned goods will not be accepted beyond this period.

This contract is and shall be deemed to have been made in Victoria and shall in all respects be governed by Victorian Law.
