Returns Policy

A faulty machine must be referred to an approved service dealer or the manufacturer’s own warranty service system to enable the fault to be diagnosed and to determine if the fault is that of the machine or misuse under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty. If there is a valid warranty claim they will carry out the repairs under warranty. If the warranty is invalid, they will advise the customer of this and the cost to repair the machine.

If you need to return a machine to Handy you must submit a request by our returns form.

Please quote the Handy product code, date of purchase and full details of the fault. These requirements also apply if you use your own format of credit request or debit note.

Just stating ‘faulty’ is not acceptable. Please detail any faults so that the manufacturers can be made aware of any problems, particularly if there is any question of safety. 

Returned goods will only be accepted for credit if they are genuinely faulty or not fit for the purpose for which they were intended.

HANDY will try to be as helpful as possible and appreciates your co-operation in providing full details of any fault.

Claims for machines that are not faulty and are returned to us for no valid reason may be rejected.

Provided that the criteria detailed above have been satisfied the faulty items will be collected as soon as practical by our van or our carrier. Machines must be drained of all fluids and boxed securely for uplift.

Our drivers are not allowed to collect returns without prior authorisation from the Sales Office.

No returns will be credited, or debit notes accepted, if the Returns Policy has not been followed.
