Returns Procedure

For products in or out of warranty

  1. You must first contact the RDM customer support team who will provide technical help to ascertain if the part is genuinely faulty
  2. If unused/unopened items are to be returned for credit, the technical support team will refer you to the Sales department to authorise the return. (See note A)
  3. If technical support and the site engineer cannot solve the problem and agree that the part may be faulty, RDM will provide and authorised Customer Returns (CR) number
  4. The CR is issued for the specific parts and quantities agreed at the time the CR is created. A new CR number would be required and you should re-contact the technical support team for any further items that you think may be faulty and might want to return
  5. As much information as possible should be provided to the technical support team; fault description, site/store name, engineer, fixture etc to help identify patterns in the failures. We may also ask for the relevant sales order/invoice number on which the part was originally purchased
  6. When sending goods back to RDM, they must be sent to:

    80 Johnstone Avenue
    Hillington Industrial Estate
    Hillington, Glasgow G52 4NZ

  7. The parts should be returned in suitable packaging, which should clearly identify the authorised Customer Returns number. (CR number)

 

Goods under warranty will be repaired, replaced or refunded in that order. Credit notes for warranty items will only be issued if goods cannot be repaired or replaced. The value of the credit note will be as the original invoice value. See Note 1

RDM will not accept returns without an authorised CR number. Any item returned without an RDM CR number will be quarantined and this will greatly delay repair, replacement or credit for the item


 

Advanced Replacements

Should the Customer require an advance replacement they should contact our SALES DEPARTMENT. An order number will be required before any parts can be supplied

At placement of the order you should also advise the RDM sales representative of the authorised Customer Returns (CR) number. Failure to do so could delay payment of credits.

The advance replacement will be dispatched and you will be charged for the replacement goods and carriage.

The failed item should be returned within 20 days to RDM.

If the item(s) returned is found to be covered by warranty, RDM will issue a refund or credit note to the invoice value of the replaced item. See Note 1.

 

NOTE 1

  • Items that are out with the warranty date should only be returned using the above procedure. Customers will be advised of the repair or replacement cost before any work is carried out.
