Defective / damaged products

9.5. Please open and check your order the day of receiving it and inform us of any transit damage problems immediately. All items and parts of items must be checked for any damage prior to assembly. It is your right and responsibility to check that your delivered products have arrived in perfect condition before signing the delivery form.
 IMPORTANT: you should refuse to accept delivery of any product which is visibly damaged, and if you only discover the damage after the courier has left, then you must report it to Origo as soon as possible and within 48 hours. If only reported after 48 hours, it is reasonable for Origo and its suppliers to determine that the damage was caused post delivery.
9.6. Faulty or defective products may be returned for repair or replacement, or be fully refunded within 6 months of delivery subject to the Warranty Policy. Please arrange to return such products to Origo for inspection in the manner described in the ‘Returns Procedure’ section below (being the ONLY manner in which returns will be accepted).

9.7. Please note that Origo will not refund or replace a product where in our reasonable opinion the product has, following the sale to you, become of unacceptable quality due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, abnormal use or failure to take reasonable care. In this case, you will be liable for the costs incurred in having such product returned to Origo and then re-delivered to you.

Exceptions
9.8. Special Offers: If the product was ordered pursuant to a “Special Offer” and such product is no longer being offered at the special price, should you elect to have the product repaired or replaced (as opposed to being refunded), Origo will only be able to repair, not replace same.

9.9. Manufacturer’s Warranties/Guarantees: Certain products may carry additional manufacturer’s warranties/guarantees, which are wider in scope, and/or longer in duration, than the 6-month warranty generally provided (as discussed above).

Returns Procedure
9.10. If you want to return a product you have purchased from Origo for any reason permitted under this Returns Policy, you must in all instances first notify Origo thereof by sending an email to info@origo.co.za quoting your original order reference number, a quick explanation of the reason why you wish to return the product, images of any damage or defect (where applicable), and any other detail you consider important.
9.11. Once assessed and approved by our specialists, a member of our team will contact you to proceed with the returns process and arrange a suitable time and place for the item to be collected by our delivery partner. We will then arrange a replacement, repair or give you a store credit for the full sale price.
9.12. Please do not attempt to return the items before speaking to one of our specialists (you may be responsible for any associated expenses if you do so).
9.13. It is your responsibility to ensure that the Product to be collected by our delivery partner is packed so as to comply with the following:
• the Product is properly protected;
• save where being returned due to being defective, the Product is still in its original packaging, together with all accessories, instructions and documentation (if any), and in perfect condition for the purposes of resale (i.e. The product you wish to return or exchange must be in exactly the same condition that you received it, in that it is new and unused, the product must not be damaged, scratched, soiled, and in the case of electronic appliances, the adhesive screen covers must not have been removed); and
• the aforesaid order reference number is accurately reflected on the delivery partner’s collection slip.
IMPORTANT
• Origo is not able to accept the return of any products that have not gone through the above process. Products returned without adhering to the ‘Returns Procedure’ will not have been validly returned and may be sent back to you at your own expense.
• Please treat products and packaging with reasonable care while in your possession. Nothing herein detracts from any right Origo may have to hold you liable for any damage you cause to a product (including its packaging) while in your possession.


10. WARRANTY POLICY
10.1. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Consumer Protection Act. You are entitled to a replacement or a refund for a major failure, and to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
10.2. The Consumer Protection Act is relevant with certain statutory conditions and warranties in our consumer contracts, which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified. These are in addition to any voluntary warranties offered by the manufacturer or supplier. Where there is a breach of such a warranty relating to goods or services, and the breach is in terms of the Consumer Protection Act, a "major" failure, the remedy will be limited to a refund, a replacement or repair of your preference. In all other cases, a breach of such warranty will give rise to a refund, replacement or repair at our preference.

10.3. We provide the following express warranties subject to the following Terms and Conditions:
• We will refund, give store credit or replace the product as the case may be in the circumstances and to the extent required under the Law if the product you receive does not match the sample or description, is substantially unfit for its intended or disclosed purpose or is not of acceptable quality (as defined in the Law), is unsafe, or if the alleged issue with the product is such that a reasonable consumer aware of the issue would not have acquired the product.
• Where a refund, a store credit or replacement is to be provided under the terms of this warranty, we may to the extent permitted under the Law, require the return of the product to us before refunding or replacing it. We will pay for, or reimburse you for, any delivery costs to return the original product to us.
• Replacement products are subject to the same warranties as the original.
• You must retain your proof of purchase for any manufacturer warranty claims.
• Refunds will be issued by direct deposit.

10.4. In order to obtain these remedies:
• You must notify us within a reasonable time from supply of the goods. In this context, a 'reasonable time' is from the time of supply until a time that it would be reasonable to expect the relevant failure to become apparent, considering the nature of goods. In most cases, this will be 7 days, but in some circumstances may be longer. Please contact us at info@origo.co.za.
• Except if and to the extent the Law requires otherwise, replacement of products or refund and reimbursement of freight costs will not be made until the original product is received by us and your claim verified.
10.5. We will not refund or replace a product where in our reasonable opinion the product has following the sale to you become of unacceptable quality due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, using it in an abnormal way or failure to take reasonable care. In case of return rejection you will cover return freight costs.
10.6. Where any law implies a warranty into this agreement, which may not be lawfully excluded, to the extent allowed by law, our liability for breach of the warranty will at our option be limited to:
• The replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods
• The repair of the goods
• The payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods
• The payment of the cost of having the goods repaired
