LDC OFFERS A ‘BACK TO BASE WARRANTY’

To make a warranty claim under this limited warranty, you must present the product or defective component with evidence of proof of purchase to LDC Equipment (Gold Coast, QLD).

In the case where an inspection reveals no warranty eligible defect, LDC reserves the right to charge the price for the inspection. LDC also reserves the right to charge you for parts, labour and ancillary cost associated with rectification work, if the fault is not as a result of a manufacturing defect.

You will be notified if your product is found to be ineligible for warranty repair.

Repair shall mean remedying a defect in the product or component thereof at no cost to the purchaser during the applicable limited warranty period.
