Warranty Claim

Goods sold by Rippa Stickers, and used by the customers in Australia or New Zealand, come with a 3 month warranty against defects and workmanship. The warranty commences from the date of dispatch.  The goods are to remain on the item you applied the product to.  We will either send someone to inspect the goods, or ask you to take photos and send them to us. Rippa Stickers will assess the goods under warranty claim and deem whether they are faulty or not. If we deem the goods under warranty are faulty, the goods will be replaced, repaired or refunded.  

If the installation was performed by Rippa Stickers, the workmanship of the installation service is warranted for three (3) months, commencing from the date of install. Rippa Stickers will assess the installation under warranty claim and deem whether the installation service was faulty or not. If we deem the installation service under warranty is faulty, the goods may be repaired, replaced or refunded by us.   

Warranty only covers the goods and services sold by Rippa Stickers.  Warranty does not cover any other item used in conjunction or supplied with the goods such as installation kits.  If you performed the installation rather than opting for an Rippa Stickers installation, it is vital and very important for you to precisely follow the installation instructions and use the items in the installation kit. Should you not thoroughly clean the substrate surface with the recommended cleaning agent, it is likely the adhesive on the film will not adhere sufficiently, causing the film to lift, bubble or constrict within months.  Should Rippa Stickers determine that the cause of the defect or fault be related to installation instructions not followed adequately, we shall not grant the warranty claim. 

Customers must request a Warranty Claim form from Rippa Stickers. Completed claim forms should be emailed, posted or faxed to us within 14 days of requesting a claim form. We may ask you to send photographic evidence supporting your claim. 

Should we grant the claim and decide to repair, we shall arrange a suitable date, time and place with you for us to come and repair. Repairs are only likely if the fault is minor and is detected shortly after installation. Otherwise it is likely we will replace or refund the goods. 

All warranties are voided if the goods are found in any way to be mishandled, incorrectly installed (if not installed by us), modified (apart from trimming the edges to fit your windscreen), tampered, abused, physically damaged or not maintained or cleaned according to the maintenance and cleaning instructions.   

Warranty is voided should the goods be taken off the substrate surface and re-applied, either to the same substrate surface or to any other surface. 

Warranty is voided should the product be in weather conditions beyond the recommended parameters as set by the film and ink manufacturers. 

Warranty is valid for the specific areas the goods were intended for. Should the goods be applied to an unauthorised area or to an unauthorised object, the warranty is voided. 

Warranty is valid for the purchasing customer only. If the product or the object the product has been applied to, is sold to another party during the warranty period, the warranty will cease from the date of sale. The person making the claim must be the original purchaser of the goods. 

Should the warranty claim be granted and Rippa Stickers decides to replace the goods, we shall replace with the same. We will not upgrade or downgrade unless mutually agreed. Customer agrees to pay the difference for upgrades and Rippa Stickers shall pay the customer the difference for downgrades. 

Warranty Turnaround Time

Turnaround time for warranty claims largely depends on the quality of information and supporting evidence you provide us. We will try our best to efficiently assess the claim. Please understand the time involved for a warranty claim will include: our time to assess the goods which may include visiting your vehicle, reprinting a replacement product, drying, cutting and packaging, then possibly to arrange for a time for us to install it, if you originally had us install the product. 

We do not provide advance replacement under any circumstances. Please keep this in mind when you place your order. Rippa Stickers is not responsible for any losses resulting from the time it takes to have the faulty item replaced, repaired or refunded.
