Your rights as a consumer are protected by the Consumer Rights Act (2015).  We are proud to be a member of the BHTA and have signed up to their code of practice along with happily participating in their complaints and mediation process if required. Our Complaints Procedure is detailed below and should this process not satisfy you then you can contact the BHTA -click here for their website – and request mediation.   We will only sell goods that are of a satisfactory quality. Goods must be of a standard that a reasonable person would regard as satisfactory. Quality is a general term, which covers a number of matters including:

  • Fitness for all the purposes for which goods of that kind are usually supplied
  • Appearance and finish
  • Freedom from minor defects
  • Safety
  • Durability

In assessing quality, all relevant circumstances will be considered, including price, description, and advertising that we commission.

Any goods will also be fit for a particular purpose.

When a consumer relies on a description, sample or display model the goods supplied must conform to it.

Manufacturer's Product Warranty

Most of the equipment listed on our website comes with a 12 month manufacturer's warranty against manufacturing faults. Please refer to individual listings for specific manufacturer warranty information or call us on 028 92 67 70 77 if required. Should a fault develop within the manufacturer warranty period which is found to be as a result of a manufacturing defect, the manufacturer will supply replacement parts free of charge. Some manufacturers offer longer warranty terms and some offer less terms on specific consumables such as batteries. Wear and tear items and consumables are not covered by the manufacturers warranty. The manufacturer usually includes their warranty terms in their user manual. If in doubt please ask.

As standard, parts will be supplied under warranty free of charge but labour charges will apply if you are unable to replace the part yourself. Labour and call out charge information can be provided by phone on 028 92 67 70 77. We strongly advise all customers to retain the product packagaing so that it can be used if the product needs to be sent for repair at one of our Service Centres. Customers should also note that all efforts will be made to resolve any issues in a swift and efficient manner but we do not provide an emergency on-call service.

Enhanced Warranty Support £125.00 Inc VAT

If you are considering buying an electric wheelchair, mobility scooter, electric rise and recline chair, bath lift, hoist or electric profiling beds then you may wish to consider taking out our optional 12 Months Enhanced Warranty Support. As manufacturers’ warranties do not in general include callouts and labour, we highly recommend our “12 Months Enhanced Warranty Support " which covers the cost of call outs and labour to diagnose faults and fit warranty parts for up to 3 call outs in year one. Should your product develop a fault we will always try to diagnose the problem by telephone to provide the quickest solution. If you opt in to the enhanced warranty support we will appoint a competent person to call out and fit parts under warranty and there would be no charge incurred for the call out and labour.

If you don’t opt in to this service, we can either dispatch the parts via courier for you to appoint your own fitter or we would offer to arrange a chargeable call out for an engineer to visit. This enhanced warranty option doesn’t cover the cost of call outs and labour to repair or fit parts not covered under warranty due to damage or customer misuse. In the event of non warranty parts requirements labour and call outs are chargeable at the standard rate.

Our vast range of products includes many popular and common solutions along with many specialised and sophisticated bespoke products. We know that peace of mind is important for any user or customer so we try and provide all product warranty information. If you require specific warranty information on any product in our range just call us on 028 92 67 70 77 or make an enquiry on the product page itself online.
