Our Warranty

Aus-Appliances Warranty Information:

All of the appliances that we sell and recommend carry a full manufacturer’s warranty and are supplied by Australian based manufacturers.

Every appliance that we sell is covered by the manufacturer’s voluntary warranty and also by the statutory implied warranty as set out by the ACCC.

Most common questions about warranty issues and policies are answered below.

Is my new appliance covered by warranty in a commercial or retail environment ?

Most appliances are sold with domestic warranties only. Some manufacturers offer 90 day commercial warranty whilst many others have none.

This can be real problem on items like air conditioners where you assume that the 5 year warranty applies, when in fact it doesn’t !

 If you intend to use your appliance in a commercial environment then speak to our team and they will recommend brands that either do have a commercial warranty or alternatively we can arrange commercial extended warranties from as little as $69.00

Do you offer extended warranties ?

Yes, Aus-Appliances deals with Lumley insurance and can provide commercial and non commercial extended warranties. For a full explanation of what is covered and what is not covered see below.

Customer Care Plan

Congratulations on purchasing Your new lifestyle product and electing to purchase a Customer Care Plan.

This Customer Care Plan is not an insurance policy, nor are We insurers. The plan is a warranty supplied by Us in respect of products We sell.

Please ensure that You keep Your original purchase receipt and/or Tax Invoice to describe and validate Your purchase of both our

Product and this Customer Care Plan. These documents constitute proof of the purchase of this Customer Care Plan. In the event of a claim these documents may need to be produced.

A separate Customer Care Plan must be purchased for each product. If You have purchased more than one product on the same purchase receipt, then this Customer Care Plan will only cover the product specifically described on the purchase receipt and/or Tax Invoice as being covered by an Customer Care Plan with a separate itemisation of its cost.

The extended warranty code/s listed on Your Tax Invoice supplied by the retail store will specify the term of Your cover. Please refer to paragraph ‘Period of Cover’ for further information.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). These exist independently of this extended warranty and you are not required to pay for them. This extended warranty provides benefits which may overlap with your ACL rights. The cost of this extended warranty will not change to the extent of any overlap.

In the event of Your Product suffering a Mechanical or Electrical Failure within Australia or New Zealand, We will pay for parts, labour and service call out fee/s required for Your Product to be repaired to normal working order, subject to the terms and conditions of this Customer Care Plan.

This Customer Care Plan applies in addition to any existing warranty included in the Original Purchase Price for Your Product or insurance applicable and all other warranties or guarantees expressed or implied by mandatory provisions of law.

The maximum amount payable by Us under this Customer Care Plan will be the Original Purchase Price of Your Product (inclusive of GST) per claim.

In the case of Your Product being covered by REP2EW under this Customer Care Plan, We will always replace with a new product rather than repair.

Food Spoilage

If Your Product is a refrigerator or freezer we will reimburse You for food spoiled as a result of a mechanical or electrical defect with a benefit up to $200 (inclusive of GST).

Replacement Terms

At Our sole discretion, We may replace Your Product with a new product with equivalent features as determined by Us when Your Product is not economically repairable or repair costs

exceed the Original Purchase Price of Your Product, regardless of the original Manufacturer’s policy on replacement.

The replacement product shall be equivalent in specifications of Your original product and the cost shall not exceed the Original Purchase Price You paid for Your Product. Due to changes in product technology and availability, the replacement product We supply may have a lower selling price and is not limited to the original manufacturer brand of Your original product. Replacement price differences, if any, will not be refunded.

When a replacement product is not available we may provide a store credit, up to the Original Purchase Price of Your Product in lieu of a replacement item. The issue of a store credit, or replacement item supplied for Your Product shall constitute fulfilment of this Customer Care Plan.
