If an items is not working on delivery or within 14 days from the invoice date, we will exchange the item or refund the price paid.

Warranty will be rejected for commercial products not installed by a qualified engineer. After 14 days from the invoice date, normal terms of warranty will apply.
Warranty stated is a 12 month parts only warranty and no labour or engineer costs are covered.
A parts only warranty allows you to use your own sourced fully qualified engineer (at your own cost) to assess the problem. This must be followed by a full engineers report sent back to ourselves, which we will then forward onto the product manufacturer. Any warranty claims requested without a qualified engineer report will be rejected Once approved by the manufacturer the parts required will be sent to your desired location. The manufacturer requests that the defective parts are to be sent back on repair of the unit. Failure to send these defective parts back is unacceptable and will result in a full invoice for the replacement parts.
At our discretion, if we choose to cover the products with Back to Base warranty, the buyer is responsible for the cost of sending the product back to our warehouse and sending it back to the buyer after being repaired.
Calitex Limited is not liable for any lost profits or business interruption that may have directly, indirectly or incidentally arisen from a faulty or defected unit. It is the customers responsibility to plan and prepare for such instances.
