3. CLAIMS PROCEDURE
3.1 In the first instance please contact the retailer who supplied the product to you. Many initial problems with machines originally thought to be due to faulty parts are solved by correct setting up or adjustment of the machines. Your dealer should be able to resolve the majority of these issues much more quickly than processing a claim under the guarantee.
3.2 If the dealer who supplied the product to you has been unable to satisfy your query, any claim made under this Guarantee should be made directly to FOX UK. A FOX Return Claim Form complete with an FR Number will be emailed to you which should be completed in full and returned as soon as possible. Please note that this form must be returned within 30 days or the claim is invalidated.
3.3 It is essential that any claim reaches FOX UK by the last day of this Guarantee at the latest. No late claims will be considered.
3.4 We will contact you once we have received your initial claim form. If it is necessary to return the item, in most cases but subject always to clause 2.4.5, we will arrange for collection or will provide freepost information to enable return depending on the product's weight and size.
3.5 FOX UK will contact you direct should further information be required or needs to be communicated in respect of the repair. Should there be no response within a period of 30 days
the machine will be scrapped.
This Guarantee applies to all machines purchased for use within the UK and Ireland from an authorised retailer of FOX UK within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. This
