This means that, in the event that your Product is found to be mechanically defective within the Warranty Period, we will arrange for it to be (at our discretion) repaired or replaced free of charge including all parts and labour, subject to the terms and conditions set out below.
1.1 In order to benefit from our extended warranty, you will need to register your Product within 30 days of the Date of Order. In order to register your Product you will need to visit www.vonshef.com/warranty and provide us with your name and contact details, along with details of your Product, including the model number and date of your Order (“Relevant Information”). You will find all of this information on your Order Confirmation. Please keep a copy of your Order Confirmation safe for future reference.

Failure to notify us within this timeframe may invalidate any such warranty claim.

cost of transportation of the Product to and from our warehouse, billed at the cost that we have incurred. We will not in any circumstances be responsible for the cost of transportation of any Product (either to or from our warehouse) which we do not consider to be subject to a valid warranty claim.
