I have a warranty claim, what procedure do I undertake?
To ensure that all warranty claims are processed in a timely manner, please ensure that the following documents are returned along with your item.
• A copy of your original receipt
• A completed return form
IMPORTANT: When filling out the return form, we advise that you be as detailed as possible when describing the fault. This is to ensure that we process your return in a timely manner. Please see below a bad example and a good example of describing the fault:
Bad example: ‘navigation not working’.
Good example: ‘when I touch the navigation icon via the main menu, the street navigation loads up as normal however under normal conditions it does not seem to be picking up any satellites. I could be driving for ‘x’ amount of hours and the navigation will still not pick up any satellite’.
Additionally, there are often times when we receive items back that are not faulty. A detailed error report also ensures that we can pinpoint what the actual fault could be, allowing us to advise you of the next appropriate steps.
I have a Polaris item but it is out of warranty, what procedure do I undertake?
If you suspect that an item is faulty and it is not covered under warranty or it falls outside the warranty period, you can still send the item back to us for assessment at no charge. Some items can still be repaired and we can advise you of this after assessment. If the item is no longer repairable, the item will need to be replaced (provided that the item has not been discontinued), which we will advise you after assessment. Please fill out the return form and send it back with the item.
Refunds procedure for change of mind
We understand that this happens and Polaris offer a grace period of 14 days. Simply send the item back in the original condition that it was sold in within 14 days and we will refund you the cost of the goods less postage and handling.
If the product is returned between 14 and 30 days, we can still offer a refund for the goods, however a 15 % restocking fee will be applied.
IMPORTANT: If goods are returned and they are not in the original condition that they were sold in, a 15% restocking fee will also be applied regardless of whether it is returned within the 14 day grace period.
If you change your mind after 30 days, no refunds will be processed.
IMPORTANT: We can only grant refunds for products that are purchased directly through Poron Aust Pty Ltd T/as Polaris. If you have purchased the item through one of our dealers, you will need to discuss the refund procedure with them, as it may be different from ours.
Please fill out the refund form and send it back with a copy of your original receipt and the goods.
