7. Warranty Information
7.1 Where applicable, goods are supplied with the benefit of a warranty given by the manufacturer. Details of the warranty period may be provided to you with the goods at the time of purchase or otherwise will be available upon request.
7.2 If goods become faulty during the warranty period for reasons unconnected with your acts, omissions or misuse of the goods, you must notify us in writing and return such goods to us.
7.3 We will repair or replace such goods with the same or superior goods, without charge, and shall have no further liability to you.
7.4 If goods become faulty outside of the warranty period and you request that we replace or repair such goods, then we may charge for such repair or replacement.
7.5 Warranty claims do not apply to any defect in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party, use otherwise than as recommended by the manufacturer, failure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without the manufacturer’s approval.
7.6 If claiming for labour, this is decided by the manufacturer of the item. Not all manufacturers pay labour claims. If your labour claim is accepted by the manufacturer/supplier, they will pay their stated labour rate and time according to ICME guides only.
7.7 If claiming for labour (clauses 7.1 to 7.6) shall apply only to VAT registered companies who are account holders and have signed an account form with General Traffic Ltd. No labour claim and incidental or consequential loss or damages shall be paid to individuals who are not VAT registered or account holders. This does not affect the warranties subject to the above clauses.
7.8 Warranties are non-transferable and are only valid for the first vehicle the part was fitted to.
7.9 Warranty will be void on all parts that have been fitted to incompatible vehicles. We can issue a list of compatible vehicles at your request.
