Neko Product Warranties

At Neko Australia, we place the highest importance on the quality of the goods we sell.  So when you purchase a Neko product, you can have confidence that it will perform to your satisfaction.  If it doesn’t, Neko will replace it, or repair it.

There are warranties for all the products we sell, in addition to the general protection that is available to all consumers under the Australian Consumer Law, specifically:

You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other loss or damage.  You are also entitled to have the products repaired or replaced if they fail to be of an acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

The purpose of the product warranty is to protect the buyer against faulty workmanship or faulty materials.  It does not apply when a customer changes their mind.  And it does not take the place of, or alter, the rights available to the consumer under Australian law.

However, for the warranty to be effected, a number of conditions apply.  The fault or damage must not have been caused by any of the following:

  • misuse or maltreatment or accidental damage of the product
  • excessive heat or cold
  • excessive water pressure
  • during the installation of the product
  • where the installation was carried out by someone who was not licensed to perform the work
  • where Neko’s installation instructions were not followed
  • where corrosive, abrasive or other unsuitable materials have been used to clean the product
  • fair wear and tear

So when does the warranty period begin?  In most cases, this will be the date of purchase.  If the product is going into a new building, the warranty will start when the building is handed over to the client.  It’s important, therefore, that the original invoice for the goods is retained as proof of purchase, and that evidence of the building hand-over is kept.

It is also important that all Neko products are inspected by the customer as soon as possible, and certainly no later than seven days from the date of purchase.  If there is a fault with the product or damage caused in transit, the customer should notify Neko immediately in order to have the damage repaired or the goods replaced.  Neko’s contact details are:

Neko Australia Pty Ltd

Phone: (02) 6143 2688    Fax:        (02) 6239 1875

Email: sales@nekoaustralia.com.au

When making a claim, please include as much detail as possible, including photographs of the damage, proof of purchase and – of course – your contact details.
