Online Warranty Returns
All OZtrail products come with a manufacturer’s warranty. This warranty period differs between products, please see individual packaging for warranty period.
OZtrail warranty covers manufacturing faults or defects in the original product. Damage or faults occurring from fair wear and tear, improper use, failure to follow instructions, failure to follow care and maintenance instructions, accidental damage, alterations, severe weather events, and animals are not covered by warranty.
The first step to get a warranty return under way is to contact OZtrail with your details, a description of the problem and some photos of the issue if possible. From these details we will be able to advise the next course of action which will usually be to either provide replacement parts or to initiate a return.
When an item is returned it will be inspected by OZtrail to confirm its eligibility for a warranty claim.
If the returned item is not found to be faulty upon inspection, the shipping fees to return the item to the customer is at the customer's expense.
Damaged in Transit
If a product arrives and is found to be damaged within 14 days of delivery, and OZtrail is notified within this time frame, OZtrail will cover the cost of any shipping required to or from the original delivery location in order to resolve the issue.
Lost in Transit
An item is deemed as lost in transit once it cannot be tracked by the carrier for a continuous week (7 days) after being initially identified as missing by OZtrail. Once deemed as lost in transit OZtrail will organise for a replacement to be shipped or a refund to be processed and the original items returned to sender once found.
