WARRANTY RELATED DEFECTS
The manufacturers will supply a warranty in addition to your rights under the UK Sales of Goods Act. Defects that occur, during the warranty period, may be covered under the Manufacturers Warranty or your Installers warranty, if applicable.
To ensure manufacturer warranty coverage REGISTER your equipment with the manufacturer in line with the guidance supplied with your equipment. This should be done as soon as possible after delivery of the product. For the majority of products Manufacturers will provide a 1, 2, 5 or occasionally 10 year warranty coverage of all parts and labour, or in some cases, it may be extended to by the manufacturer. In most cases the Warranty coverage is based on you complying with the guidance supplied by the Manufacturer. Where a defect occurs on a product, when you report the defect to us we will seek assurances that the product is registered with the Manufacturer and that you have made contact with that Manufacturer to report the defect
Installation related defects - most manufacturers will exclude defects that result from installation errors. It is therefore essential that you use Installers that are appropriately qualified and have the necessary insurances, or warranty coverage for claims regarding installation defects.
Refunds are made to customers following approved cancellations or for defective goods. In both cases you must contact us within 14-days of purchase to receive a full refund of the purchase price of the product. Please note: If the product has been delivered then any surcharge payments will not be refunded. This is due to the fact that surcharges are paid to our courier service for the initial delivery and are not retained by CHS
Refunds will only be made to the PURCHASER of the product on production of a PROOF OF PURCHASE. It is essential that if the product is given as a gift that the Purchaser retains the Proof of Purchase so that this can be forwarded to us as part of the Cancellation request evidence. No CASH refund is available.
Reduced refunds will apply to Cancelled Purchases that are notified to us between 14 days and 30 days from the purchase date. The reduced refund will be based on 50% of the original product purchase cost excluding VAT and Surcharges.
Full Purchase Price refunds will be made to customer who notify us of cancellations within 14-days and return the products intact and in good condition with all components, books, free issue items and manuals to us.
