Dead On Arrival Products - "DOA"
A Product is considered DOA if it shows symptoms of a failure, or is discovered to be broken or defective when first taken from its packaging.
Our Customer Service Representative will provisionally determine whether the Product is DOA. A photo may be requested to assist with the assessment of your claim. Where a Product is provisionally determined as DOA we will arrange to provide a full refund or a replacement product, depending on your choice.
Where we have provisionally determined that a Product is DOA, return shipping will be arranged at the expense of BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE.
If the Product is deemed by Customer Service NOT to be DOA, and is not covered by a warranty, BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE may refuse to replace the Product or give you a refund for the Product.
When a Product is replaced, your replacement Product becomes your property and the returned DOA Product becomes our property. Replacement Products are provided with the same warranty as the returned Product. When a refund is given, the returned DOA Product becomes our property.
Dead Soon After Arrival Products - "DSAA"
If you find a defect in a Product within a reasonable time after delivery and before you have used it a lot (30 days as a rule of thumb) you should notify BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE and your claim will be treated in the same way as a DOA product (see "Dead On Arrival Products"). A photo may be requested to assist with the assessment of your claim.
Later Defect Products - "LD"
If the Product is not DOA or DSAA and you find that the Product has a defect or a problem within a reasonable time during which it should not have that defect or problem, it is a LD Product. BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE will consider cases based on individual merit for exchange or refund.
A reasonable time is the amount of time that is reasonable to expect, given the cost and quality of the item and the amount and type of usage.
We encourage the notification of claims within 30 days.
Where claims are made more than 30 days after delivery, we will need full details about the way the LD Product has been used and it may be necessary for us to make further inquiries.
Approved Return – Must Have
Where Customer Service has provisionally determined that a Product is DOA, DSAA or LD, Customer Service will determine the necessary action to be taken based on each individual case and merits.
Products cannot be returned without management’s approval. The Product should be returned to BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE immediately after approval from management. Where possible, all Products must be packed in the original, unmarked packaging including any accessories, manuals, documentation and registration that shipped with the Product. If the accessories are not included, only a partial refund will be applied.
Organising the Return of DOA Products
DOA, DSAA and LD Products must be returned whenever we agree to provide you with a refund or replace the Product.
When a Replacement Product is arranged:
• A replacement for the same Product that you ordered will be arranged after we have received your returned DOA, DSAA or LD Product.
• The delivery time for the replacement Product will be the same as stated for the original DOA, DSAA or LD Product.
• Replacement Products are provided with the same warranty as the DOA, DSAA or LD Product from the date the Replacement Product is dispatched.
Some Products - Manufacturer Warranty
Some Products sold by us are serviced and supported by the manufacturer or supplier in accordance with the warranty information provided on the listing. BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE recognises customers purchasing some products, require a high level of support therefore we would ask you to contact the manufacturer or supplier for trouble-shooting assistance. If the manufacturer or supplier is unable to assist, and the product is covered by a statutory warranty, BIG HOSPITALITY WAREHOUSE will replace the item, issue a refund or otherwise provide a remedy. This is based on each individual assessment and inspection of a product based on merit and if determined faulty.
