12. Warranty Policy
We are official dealers for all of the products that we supply and offer the goods with the normal manufacturer's parts warranty.
The warranty period is typically 12 months subject to the exclusions detailed below and is return to base. The actual warranty timescales can normally be found on the front of your invoice.
This means the item must be returned to our premises at Leighton Buzzard for the warranty repairs. If this is not possible we can arrange for a callout to customer's site at the customer's expense.
13. General warranty exclusions
- Parts which need adjustment, re-setting, replacement or repair due to abuse, fair wear & tear or to suit the individual needs of the user i.e. tyres, lap belts, bulbs, plastic shrouds and upholstery (damaged post receipt) , motor bushes, normal battery degradation, wheelchair brake adjustment, circuit breaker resetting, resetting user-induced problems on riser-recliners - cleared by disconnecting/re-connecting hand control etc..
Where call-outs occur for such items the purchaser will remain liable for the call-out, parts and labour costs. However, we will do our utmost to minimise these by talking through problems in depth before arranging to visit. Experience shows that many problems can be attributable to a lack of user familiarity and can often be overcome with some simple fault diagnosis and guidance on the phone.
- Damage attributable to misuse or accident for which we cannot be deemed responsible.
14. Delivery Information and exceptions
Delivery to a UK mainland address by a national carrier is free of charge for orders over £100. For orders under £100, a fixed deliver charge of £10 +VAT will apply to a UK mainland address. Please note that delivery outside the UK mainland will incur an extra charge in addition to normal delivery costs.

Please note: When taking delivery of large items i.e. beds, riser recliners, large scooters etc; Mobility Zone request that the passage into the room chosen for delivery is cleared of any breakable items (including those hanging on walls) by the customer, as we cannot accept responsibility for any damages caused to such items in the course of a delivery.
