12 Month Warranty Guarantee
All products sold by The Camping Equipment Company are backed by a 12 month manufacturer's warranty.
The manufacturer agrees during the warranty period to repair any manufacturing defects in the product or, at its option, replace the product with another product or an equivalent product, or offer a store credit, without cost to the owner for material or labour.
This warranty is subject to the original proof of purchase and the products being used in accordance with the instruction manual.
This warranty does not cover defects due to: modification, accident, damage caused by vandalism, rusting, acts of nature or any other event beyond the control of the manufacturer. Nor does this warranty cover: scratching, scuffing, natural breakdown of materials that occur inevitably with extended use including Ultra Violet light damage and exhausted zippers or other cosmetic damage that may result from normal wear and tear. In addition, defects resulting from: intentional damage, negligence or unreasonable use will void this warranty.
The return policy does not cover damage due to improper installation, if an item was physically altered by you, or services performed by anyone other than us.
Your product is valuable and should be insured against loss or damage. During strong winds and storms collapse the tent flat onto the ground and seek refuge in your vehicle. Damage caused by storms and strong winds is not covered by warranty.
To make a warranty claim please follow the below instructions:
OPTION 1) Take a photo. Contact us. We'll send a replacement part.
This process is the quickest and easiest option.
If you purchased as an account customer please take a clear, detailed photo of the broken part and log a return request via your account. Email the photo to email@example.com
We need proof of purchase in order to process your request. With the inclusion of photos we can often just post out a replacement part, rather than ask you to return the faulty part to us first for inspection.
Items returned that are physically abused or damaged will not be accepted.
This process is the quickest, easiest option.
OPTION 2) Can't take a photo? Post the part or whole product back to us.
If you purchased as an account customer please log a return request via your account explaining the issue.
If you purchased as a guest, without an account name and password, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the issue.
