Step 1. Please get in contact with us on 01243 572 700 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know exactly what the problem is and how the product was installed. There is a good chance you might be able to solve the problem without having to replace the item.

Step 4. If we are able to send an advancement replacement, let us know where to send it and it will be sent out as soon as possible. If the item is not in stock then we will need to order it in. Standard lead times will apply. This item will be invoiced to you, but we will not ask for payment as the faulty one will be coming back to us.
