Terms & Conditions


Please read the following document carefully. This document describes what is included in the New Product Warranty, and what is not covered by the New Product Warranty. By purchasing from us, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Warranty.

The Consumer Guarantees Act and Fair-Trading Act provide the basis of Eco Group’s Warranty policy. The Consumer Guarantee Act sets out minimum standards for goods sold by Eco Group. In the event that goods sold are not fit for purpose, or are faulty, the Customer has the right to a repair, replacement or a refund.

The Fair-Trading Act is designed to protect the Customer from being misled, either intentionally or unintentionally. This applies to all aspects of the promotion and sale of goods and services including; pricing, where the product was made, where the product is from, the meeting of New Zealand safety standards, availability of products in store and the sales techniques used. The Commerce Commission enforces the Fair-Trading Act 1986.

Eco Group’s products have a minimum 5-year Warranty from date of purchase. Warranty claims cover any fault, defect or failure occurring as a result of the manufacturing process. Damage or faults occurring as a result of misuse, accident or wear and tear are not covered by our Warranty policy.

If the product is still under Warranty, then the repair will be at our expense including the freight to return the repaired or replacement product. If the product is out of Warranty, then we can still have the product repaired, however, the cost of the repair will be charged to the customer.
