Product: A complete item that is ready to be used by the customer on their model layout.
Component: A item that needs to be installed by the customer into an electrical or electronic circuit. The customer needs the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake this correctly and safely. We provide Numerous HELP & ADVICE GUIDES listed at the foot of this document. We also sell a range of Model Railway technical books.
If Electrical & Electronic Components are returned for any reason by a customer, they are firstly placed in a clear plastic container together with any correspondence.
The items are firstly inspected for any physical damage caused in manufacture or damage caused by the customer.
Electrical and electronic goods are usually installed by the customer into an electrical circuit. It is the customer’s responsibility to READ and UNDERSTAND all instructions contained with the components and to read all GUIDES as directed by the supplier. The customer is requested NOT to open any component packaging until they are satisfied that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to safely and securely install the components or to seek professional advice locally or to contact us direct for advice.
We provide numerous customer HELP, ADVICE and QUIDANCE documents. It is not sufficient for the customer to glance through these documents. They are there to be read several times so as to understood. In some cases the contents is NEW TECHNICAL INFORMATION especially for new comers to Model Railways plus for older people who are returning to Model Railways after a break from the hobby. Customers should NOT assume that things are the same as they were 5 to 10 years ago. Model Railways component technology has moved on in leaps and bounds.
Things are NOT AS THEY USED TO BE !!!
Customers are advised to access these documents on their computer before ordering any electrical or electronic components and then before opening any component packaging that is delivered by the supplier to the customer in a secure postal box.
These products are delicate and need careful handling by the customer in order to avoid any physical damage or electrical circuit damage caused by incorrect installation or the use of an incorrect power supply. The correct use of tools is also very important.
Any components supplied within a group of products that are returned, will be inspected as a collective set of components, as they will usually have been installed within an electrical and or electronic circuit by the customer.
Any components and or products returned will be covered by the manufacturers guarantee I.e. if all the necessary procedures have been undertaken correctly. If we consider that the customer has damaged or misused any component and or any component has been incorrectly installed, it will NOT be covered by manufacturers guarantee.
We reserve the right to obtain a second opinion in respect of any component returned by a customer. We also reserve the right to request any relevant information from the customer in respect of their use, handling and installation of components.
We also reserve the right in exceptional circumstances to return components to the original manufacturer.
If we consider that any component has been damaged by the customer and the component or components have been installed into a circuit by a customer, all returned components will be considered collectively. If customer damage has been detected and it can be seen with the naked eye, that product will kept and isolated. If any other related components were installed within a circuit they will also be inspected. Electronic components and or circuit boards contained within a circuit – If physical damage has been caused by the customer to any component within a circuit, it is likely that it will cause damage to all the components within the customer installed electrical circuit, especially when power is applied.
Electronic components and or circuit boards will not normally display any outward damage or look faulty to the naked eye. They will be tested and if found to be faulty due to customer error, they will be removed and destroyed in order that they cannot, by mistake, be supplied to another customer at a later date.
This is normal QUALITY CONTROL PROCEDURE to ensure that the component or components do not re-enter the supply chain.
A Customer damaged component may look to be in good order from the naked eye but if it has been found to be faulty, or installed with another faulty/damaged product and or fault possibly caused by incorrect installation or damage caused to any other damaged component within a circuit or an electrical short circuit has occurred when power has been applied to the circuit.
If a component is found to be faulty within the manufacturing process it will be replaced or a refund made to the customer. This is subject to our TERMS & CONDITIONS of TRADING and any manufacturers guarantee.
