DAMAGED GOODS / ERRORS
If you believe that an order may have been damaged in transit to you, please sign for it as “damaged” to the carrier, or refuse to accept the delivery. If you accept a damaged delivery, you must retain all original packaging for examination. You must notify TRU of any damage within 24 hours of receipt of goods. You must notify TRU of any error in orders within 3 days of receipt of goods. Please contact our returns department by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
DEFECTIVE ITEMS (WARRANTY REPAIRS AND GUARANTEES)
Please carefully read all manuals supplied with an item before you report it as faulty. There may be a relevant function that is not immediately obvious. Carriage charges are payable for any item found not to be faulty.
Please note that Warranty provisions do not cover normal wear-and-tear or consumable items such as DJ mixer cross faders, turntable styli or recordable media. Loudspeakers and power amplifiers are not covered by warranty if overdriven or misused in any way. Please note that some manufacturers advertise peak power figures rather than the more useful RMS or continuous power.
Please contact our returns department by emailing email@example.com to arrange your return and be issued with a Returns Number.
WITHIN 28 DAYS FROM RECEIPT OF GOODS
If upon return to TRU an item is inspected and agreed to be faulty, at the discretion of TRU a replacement or refund will be offered. Collection of faulty goods can be arranged with TRU returns department. Goods must be returned as new, complete with all accessories including manuals, cables and software in the original packaging. Supporting paperwork in the form of a note explaining the suspected problem, and the TRU invoice or packing slip must be included. Goods must be protected for transit by a double box or cardboard outer. Please note that replacements or refunds are not able to be processed unless these procedures are followed. Please note that no liability will be accepted for goods returned without original packaging.
AFTER 28 DAYS AND BEFORE ONE YEAR FROM RECEIPT OF THE GOODS
If a fault develops during this period, TRU Returns Department should be notified of your intention to return the equipment. Goods must be returned in original or as good as packaging for warranty repairs to be considered. Please note that no liability will be accepted for goods returned without original packaging. If upon inspection, the fault is found to be outside of the manufacturer’s warranty conditions, a charge will be made for diagnosis and return carriage.
AFTER 12 MONTHS FROM PURCHASE BUT STILL WITHIN THE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
Some (not all) manufacturers provide a warranty which is longer than 12 months. Please check manufacturer websites for information on their UK warranty. If a unit fails within the manufacturer’s warranty but outside the 12 month warranty offered by TRU, it will still need to be returned to TRU for testing and forwarding to the relevant service department. In this instance, it will be the customer’s responsibility to arrange safe delivery to TRU.
OUT OF WARRANTY PERIOD – REPAIRS
TRU’s in-house service department are able to offer out of warranty repairs to most products on condition factory parts or suitable equivalents are still available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in regards to any out of warranty repairs.
