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 AV Mart Australia’s attention soon after they occur.
AV Mart Australia is not a manufacturer or authorised 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. The Customer accepts the warranty of the manufacturer of the Goods (“the manufacturer’s warranty”). The manufacturer’s warranty varies between manufacturers and commences on the date of the Tax Invoice for the period of the warranty provided by the relevant manufacturer. The Customer should take all reasonable measures to read and fully understand the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty as set out in the warranty document provided within the packaging of the Goods. If such warranty document is missing from the packaging at the time of delivery, the Customer must immediately notify AV Mart Australia so that a replacement warranty document can be arranged.
Some manufacturers provide onsite or pickup and delivery services as is most common with warranty services for larger LCD panels, large format printer etc. These direct manufacturer services, in general, allow for a quicker turnaround of warranty claims.
Due to the Privacy Act, AV Mart Australia cannot apply for a warranty claim on the customer's behalf directly with the manufacturer.
If the manufacturer directs you to return the product back to us, please contact us first to arrange the RA prior to sending anything back.
AV Mart Australia requires an RA (return authorization) to be approved before returning any goods. Please use the contact us form and:
• Include details of the fault description or reason for return. ("product faulty" or "don't work" is not a good fault description for the warranty or consumer guarantee claim)
• Once the RA request is approved, you will receive a return authorization number, which is the reference number used for the return to us and allows you to track your warranty status
Please note: The actual manufacturer’s warranty process may vary for different manufacturers and/or suppliers, so we cannot provide an accurate time frame of how long the process will take for a particular product in the first instance. Status updates are provided once further information is received from the manufacturers, their service centre or agents.
AV Mart Australia 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.
